Tom Hardy joins Christopher Nolan for ‘Batman’ film

While Tom Hardy is set to play Mad Max in the George Miller reboot titled, Mad Max: Fury Road, the delay has set up a new exciting role.

Deadline reports that Hardy will be reunited with the Inception director, Christopher Nolan, for a lead role in the new Batman film.

“Insiders are keeping the role secret and won’t even say if he’s up for a villain role, but that seems a reasonable assumption,” Deadline reports.

Fans are already speculating over Black Mask and Bane as the two main likely characters from Batman’s rogue gallery of villains.

“Hardy has followed up Inception with lead roles in the Tomas Alfredson-directed  adaptation of the John Le Carre novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and he’s currently starring with Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon in the McG-directed Fox comedy This Means War.”

Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman are expected back to reprise their roles from the first two Nolan Batman films.

Expect more news as production is set to start soon.
