Chris Nolan Confirms That Tom Hardy Will Be In <I>Batman 3</i> And Debunks The Joker!

Although recent reports have already said the same thing, the director himself has now confirmed that Tom Hardy does have a role in The Dark Knight Rises and that the recent Joker rumours are nonsense...

At an industry event last night for the upcoming release of his film Inception on Blu-ray and DVD, Nolan addressed the latest rumors about the return of the late Heath Ledger's Joker and also confirmed that Tom Hardy will be in the highly anticipated movie. Here's an excerpt from the report over at indieWIRE:

But he wouldn’t say what the story’s about or who the villain is, other than to confirm that Inception’s Tom Hardy will play "a key role, not saying good or bad," and to shoot down reports that he’ll resurrect The Joker by including unused footage of Heath Ledger’s performance in the previous chapter. "That’s all wrong," said the writer-director.

I'm not sure about you guys, but I'm guessing that Christopher Nolan must loathe the rumor mill because he seems to spend most of his time clearing up the mostly nonsensical rumours that start circulating online! The Dark Knight Rises is set to be released on July 30, 2012!
