This may come as no surprise to some that Christopher Nolan has cast some Inception alumni in the next Batman film, untitled at the moment. As the film’s production is being kept a complete secret, there is absolutely no word on whom Hardy will be playing. Judging from Hardy’s talents ranging from Bronson to Marie Antoinette and the new Mad Max film, I can see him as a major villain in the film. I could see him as a fantastic Riddler or even Clayface (which is doubtful seeing as how that’s a unrealistic character for the series).
Hardy has recently come more available after the delay on Mad Max: Fury Road, which will not begin further production until later next year. I will keep you updated on any Batman news that comes to light, trying to take the truths out of the ridiculous amount of rumors that will surround this film.
