Batman Alert! Tom Hardy Talks Bane!!

Tom Hardy Talks Bane

We absolutely love that while no major details have been released, that we've been getting snippets of pieces as of late — from the teaser trailer to these on-set looks at the batmobile tumbler — and now we're hearing from Tom Hardy (yum!) himself as to what it's like to play his character, Bane!

‘Hang on a minute. You’re asking me to come round the world with you in a Batman movie, playing a villain, and the only downside to it is I have to wear a mask? Hmmm, let me think. I’ll get back to you… No, I’m fucking there, man! Anything you need.’”

"All I can say is that Chris has a plan up his sleeve that’s not at all disappointing. And that is a definite choice that’s watertight in every respect. I think Bane’s fucking cool so I’m really excited to play him. It’s not the guy in Joel Schumacher’s film, but it shouldn’t disappoint fanboys…”

So, does he feel any pressure living up to Heath Ledger’s portrayal as one Batman’s arch-nemeses? “No, none at all,” he insisted. “Brilliant actor, brilliant work – that’s it. I’ve got a job to do. It’s the same with Mad Max and Mel Gibson. I’m not here to engage in a competition with their talent. It’s to play the character that I’ve been given.”

Sounds like the right mix of attitude about handling the role after the iconic Joker performance and excitement to just play the part!

Even with having to wear a mask:

“Any time you put something over your face, you’re going to adopt a personality and a physicality that has nothing to do with acting. It allows a performance to be free.”

Well then we say be free, Tom Hardy! Free and without a shirt, please! Ha!

We can't wait to see this movie!

    Problem is, Heath Ledgers performance as the Joker was not very good. He played a great face-painted psycho character, he did NOT play the Joker. It's only "iconic" because he died. The best performance in the film was Two-Face, and got completely overshadowed by Heath's death. And every picture thus far shown of Tom Hardy as "Bane" is not Bane at all, and looks terrible. Another miss Nolan.
