Our friends over at Batman-News have found themselves a very interesting scoop that not only reveals who the villain will be in The Dark Knight Rises, but also what role the recently cast Tom Hardy will have. Here's what they had to say:
"I’ve heard that Tom Hardy is in fact going to play the villain. My source strongly believes that Hardy is going to be playing Hugo Strange. This is the first bit of information from this person that I’m publishing, however they have been accurate in the past."
"For example, this person told me weeks before the recent Christoper Nolan interview that The Riddler would not be appearing in the film. They also mentioned that Rachel Weisz and Anne Hathaway were in the running for the lead female role a couple of weeks before Deadline posted their list."
In case you didnt know, Professor Hugo Strange is a genius in many scientific fields and a master criminal strategist. Obsessed with Batman and his mind, he often dresses as him to prove himself better. He is also a good hand to hand combatant. Sounds like a good fit for Tom Hardy eh?
What do you think about Hardy playing Hugo Strange? If the sites source really is as reliable as they claim, it looks like we now know who the actor will play in the upcoming movie! Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.
The Dark Knight Rises is set to be released on July 20, 2012!
