Finally! We know for sure!
Along with the AMAZING news that director Christopher Nolan has cast Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle in the upcoming Dark Knight Rises, he's also revealed that Tom Hardy, whose villanous character has been the subject to speculation for month, will be playing the character of Bane!
Many may remember his appearance in the abysmal Batman & Robin, but for those of you who are lucky to be unfamiliar with that film, Bane is an escaped prisoner who becomes freakishly strong after being pumped with all kinds of insane drugs. In the comic, he is notorious for breaking Batman's spinal cord.
Nolan revealed in a statement:
“I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies.”
We have a feeling that this interpretation of Bane is going to MUCH more hardcore and frightening than the last - which means it's going to be OUT OF EFFING CONTROL!
This movie cannot come fast enough!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Tom Hardy to play Bane??
