(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
Tom Hardy knows he's the best bad guy around!
The Mad Max: Fury Road actor was a worthy adversary for Batman playing masked, meat-headed villain Bane in 2012's the Dark Knight Rises!
Since then, DC Comics has severely stepped up their game to compete with Marvel's cinematic presence — Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad are both expected to hit theaters next year!
So, there's a very likely possibility of Bane returning to the big screen sometime soon, and Hardy thinks he can reprise his role to take on both the Dark Knight AND the Man of Steel!
The 37-year-old was promoting his new film Legend (where he pulls a Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap and plays TWINS!) when he was asked if he'd like to return to the DC Comics universe. Hardy's response was surprisingly enthusiastic, saying:
"Do I want to return to the DC universe? Of course! I'm Bane! [Someone] asked me, who would I want to win out in a fight between Superman and Batman? And I would like to hold the pair of them under the water until the bubbles stop."
We love how dark and disturbing that answer was — classic Bane! LOLz!
