Can’t let go of Bane from The Dark Knight Rises? Well neither can Tom Hardy apparently! In an interview with MTV, to promote his new movie Legend in which he plays the London mobsters the Kray twins, he was asked whether he would consider returning as the infamous ‘Breaker of The Bat’. The response was overwhelmingly positive!
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.
A bit morbid, but hey, he’s Bane right? Due to the still fledgling DC Cinematic Universe, Christopher Nolan’s Batman triology is no longer canon meaning that they have completely wiped the slate clean. Still, it’s not impossible that Hardy would be called back as Bane, although it is unlikely. Deadpool, who was played by Ryan Reynolds in the 2009 film X-Men: Wolverine Origins, still brought the same actor back to play the ‘Merc with a Mouth’ for next year’s Deadpool movie. This was of course due to a massive fan push for Fox not to re-cast.
Do you think Tom Hardy should play Bane again in the DCCU? Who would you pit against Bane in a fight? For more movie, TV and gaming news stick right here on TiCGN!
