<font color= red>UPDATED:</font> Tom Hardy Talks A Little More About Playing Bane In <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i>!

In an interview on a British chat show tonight, the actor talked about the previous interpretation of Bane in Batman and Robin, how this will change with Chris Nolan's vision, the mask, bulking up and more. Now with video!

After talking to Samuel L. Jackson about The Avengers last week, it was Tom Hardy's turn to appear on British chat show, Alan Carr: Chatty Man, this time. The show is still on as I type this, but I managed to quickly transcribe what he had to say when asked about his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. The following transcript is as accurate as possible.

"Have you seen the Joel Shumacher Batman and Robin? Doesn't look very menacing does he?" [Laughs]


When asked whether or not he'll be donning a similar "gimp" mask in the upcoming movie, he paused for a few seconds as if struggling to find an answer until finally replying with the following joke:

"Well...only if I feel like it!"


Continuing to talk about the previous version of Bane, the actor then went on to emphasise that it won't be anything like that one and that as with the other movies, Christopher Nolan has his own plans for how the character will be portrayed.

"Chris Nolan will revisit the character so I wouldn't go by that at all."

"I'm going to need to bulk up a lot for it. That's a lot of weight to put on and I've got to start shooting in May. I've got to go up to about 13 or 14 stone. I'm 12 and a bit now, so only have a few months to do that."


The Dark Knight Rises is set to be released on July 20, 2012!




Thanks to our friends over at Batman-News, we now have a video of the interview which they were kind enough to share with us tonight! Be sure to head on over to the site for more!
