This isn't exactly what we expected, but we think if anyone can make it work, HE definitely can!
Reports are circulating that Tom Hardy's mystery roles as a villain in Christopher Nolan's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises has been revealed to be a character from the graphic novel Prey, a deranged police psychiatrist named Dr. Hugo Strange!
According to his story, which is apparently the baseline for his part in the flick, Strange uses hypnotherapy to turn police officers into vigilantes to try and draw Batman out of hiding!
But don't you think this feels a little too similar to Cillian Murphy's role in the first two films?
We suppose we won't know for sure until more details about the story start emerging!
