Tom Hardy gives update on his role as Bane in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

Tom Hardy appeared on Britain’s, Alan Carr: Chatty Man, where he talked about his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.

Here is the excerpts from CBM:

“Have you seen the Joel Shumacher Batman and Robin? Doesn’t look very menacing does he?” [Laughs]

When asked if he would wear a mask, he paused for a few seconds and finally replied with this joke: 

“Well…only if I feel like it!”

Don’t worry, Bane will not look anything like the past films. Christopher Nolan has his own plans for how the character will be portrayed according to Hardy: 

“Chris Nolan will revisit the character so I wouldn’t go by that at all.”

“I’m going to need to bulk up a lot for it. That’s a lot of weight to put on and I’ve got to start shooting in May. I’ve got to go up to about 13 or 14 stone. I’m 12 and a bit now, so only have a few months to do that.”

The Dark Knight Rises will be released on July 20, 2012. What are your thoughts on this news?
