Tom Hardy: 'Batman' Lead Role!

Tom Hardy: 'Batman' Lead Role!

Tom Hardy will be reuniting with Inception director Christopher Nolan for a lead role in the next Batman film!

Deadline reports Warner Bros. won’t say if he’s up for a villain role, but that seems a “reasonable assumption.” We agree!

Tom has been in Vancouver with Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, and Chelsea Handler shooting the McG-directed comedy This Means War.

We can’t wait for the new Batman movie!!!

    OMG ! I just can’t wait for this movie. Plus, this guy was awesome in Inception. Whomever Nolan undertakes to set up as one of the characters in this movie, I careless cause the scenario is just going to be epic !!!!

    Hmm. I’m really curious to know what role he will be playing. The Dark Knight is the only Batman I can sit though, thanks to Heath Ledger.

    Tom Hardy will probably play Edward Nygma, aka The Riddler.

    @sr: I though Joseph Gordon-Levitt was playing the Riddler? I can’t keep up anymore..

    I hope Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play Riddler, and Tom someone else. I love these two in Inception.

    Thank god Christian Bale got out thanks so much Chris Nolan..
    Because who wants to be remembered in a movie with a dead
    DRUGS..!!! Man now we can have a hunk of an actor be referenced
    and compared to Heath Ledger…!! and Katie Holmes did the first
    movie..So thanks you Chris for getting Mr. Bale out of role ..that is
    being compared to a drug addict who o.d…!! Now his career will
    be forever be pigeonholed …into the Batman role ..Too bad he
    is a hunk Tom Hardy

    Just like I predicted. Nolan is going to put Dead-shot or Hush in the 3th batman movie & Tom Hardly going to play it. “or maybe he will play the riddler” Remember people The Riddler had a play & his play was Hush. maybe we will get to see Riddler, Hush & The Falcony Family.

    Awesome! Yes, Butter_Fly, only Batman I loved was the Dark Knight because of Heath Ledger. Tom Hardy does reminds me of Heath, not physically, but for his incredible acting skills. Check out Bronon or ‘Stuart a life backward’ if you want to know what I mean. I predict he will be awesome as the Riddler or any other villain! He has the sexiest lips ever.

    MR NOLAN..tom to play batman Says:

    The people that read your website must be inbred. “Lead” does not mean he will be taking the part of Batman from Christian Bale. It means he will most likely be one of the lead villians or new character in the film. If you can’t read a paragraph on a blog and understand it, you sreiously have issues.

    I would do many unspeakable things to that man if I could get my hands on him.

    Eli Says:

    Hey #18 hope you are not referring to me. I think I explained pretty clearly why I compare Tom to Heath, which jas absolutely nothing to do with whether Tom plays any Batman role. Also, playing the lead in Batman does not mean playing Batman himself. Batman in Dark Knight did not have a more prominent role than the Joker, you could argue the main lead was indeed the Joker.

    I guess Ed Westwick’s dream of playing Batman won’t be coming true lol
