Tom Hardy to be in the next Batman movie
Tom Hardy was the breakout star of "Inception." And apparently director Christopher Nolan liked him enough to invite him to be in his next Batman movie.
As Deadline reports, Hardy will have a lead role in the next, yet-to-be-titled Batman film, to be directed by Nolan. It's unclear whom Hardy will play, but Deadline implies he could be a major villain, which has led to rampant online speculation that he's the new Riddler, even though his "Inception" co-star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, was already rumored to be taking on the part. The movie is reportedly slated to begin production in the spring.
Rumors and online speculation aside, what is clear is that Hardy -- who starred in the little-seen "Bronson," and will be seen next in the big-screen adaptation of John Le Carre's "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" alongside Gary Oldman and Colin Firth -- is zooming his way toward It Boy status.
