Here's few blurbs from Tom Hardy about playing Bane in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES via TOTALFILM.COM...

* (After being asked by Chris Nolan to play Bane) "‘Hang on a minute. You’re asking me to come round the world with you in a Batman movie, playing a villain, and the only downside to it is I have to wear a mask? Hmmm, let me think. I’ll get back to you… No, I’m f'ing there, man! Anything you need.’”

* “All I can say is that Chris has a plan up his sleeve that’s not at all disappointing. And that is a definite choice that’s watertight in every respect. I think Bane’s f'ing cool so I’m really excited to play him. It’s not the guy in Joel Schumacher’s film, but it shouldn’t disappoint fanboys…”

* (Any pressure following Heath Ledger as The Joker in THE DARK KNIGHT?) “No, none at all. Brilliant actor, brilliant work –- that’s it. I’ve got a job to do."

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES hits theaters next Summer on JULY 20, 2012!
