Tom Hardy Reunites with Christopher Nolan for Unspecified Role in BATMAN 3

     October 13, 2010


Tom Hardy is set to reunite with his Inception director Christopher Nolan for an unspecified role in Batman 3Deadline says it’s a leading role but that they’re keeping it secret beyond that.  However, they say it’s a reasonable assumption that Hardy would be playing a villain.  But who’s the villain?  The great thing about Hardy is that he’s versatile enough to not really give any indication.  He could be The Riddler, Killer Croc, or perhaps another villain you wouldn’t normally think of (somewhere, the world’s lone Killer Moth fan quietly prays).

Hardy is currently attached to play Mad Max in Mad Max: Fury Road, but as we previously reported, filming has been delayed until 2012 which frees up Hardy’s schedule considerably.  He’s also attached to McG’s action-romantic-comedy This Means War with Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine, as well as Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy with Gary Oldman and Colin Firth.  Hit the jump for a brief update on what we know about Batman 3 thus far.  Batman 3 is slated for release on July 20, 2012.

Here’s a brief rundown on what we know about Batman 3:

Personally, I’m jazzed about Hardy coming on board.  He’s a fantastic actor and if you need convincing, you probably haven’t seen him in Nicolas Winding Refn’s Bronson (which is available to Watch Instantly on Netflix).
