Tom Hardy Reveals A Clash Between Bane And Gordon In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Talking about the difference between their relationship in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and The Dark Knight Rises, here's what Tom Hardy had to say about a clash between him and Gary Oldman in the threequel.
Well, I guess we now know who puts Commissioner Gordon in the hospital! (as seen in the first teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises) In an interview with Total Film at the Cannes Film Festival, it would appear that Tom Hardy has confirmed some sort of confrontation between the villainous Bane and Commissioner Jim Gordon in the highly anticipated finale to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.
"I spent my entire experience with Gary [on Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy] staring at him and not returning any lines because I think he's God. The second time [on The Dark Knight Rises] I was playing God, so I ignored him. Kicked him a bit, that kind of thing. Gary Oldman is one of my heroes, I did nothing but glean from him."
So, not a huge amount of detail here, but it definitely sounds as if we should expect to see the villain taking on more than just the Caped Crusader this July. The fact he compares Bane to God is also very interesting, especially as many fans have pieced together a theory that he imprisons Bruce Wayne/Batman at some point in The Dark Knight Rises. Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
