Photos: Tom Hardy is Dr. Hugo Strange in "The Dark Knight Rises"?

Photos: Tom Hardy is Dr. Hugo Strange in "The Dark Knight Rises"?Submit Comment
"The Dark Knight Rises" is getting ready to begin filming in May and today we have two pieces of news that are once again nothing more than rumors and speculations.

First, Batman-News is reporting that Bane will make an appearance in the film. No word whether the character will be another brain-dead idiot like in "Batman and Robin" or more like he is in the comics, which is strong, intelligent and responsible for paralyzing Batman.

Second, Tom Hardy (Inception) has been spotted walking around with a shaved head and facial hair. While the actor is often seen with facial hair, he's not usually bald. So he's either making "Bronson 2" or getting ready to play Dr. Hugo Strange in "The Dark Knight Rises." Or maybe it's none of those. See photos below.

Hope so, would be a good choice, possibly something to rival the joker....although i doubt it would

Maybe he just figured out that beard and a shaven look badass in the normal life too?

aslong as there aren't any cheesy 'brain-dead' characters in this film i dont care who he's playing.

Makes sense for him to play this role, Hugo Strange is he main antagonist in the upcoming Batman: Arkham City game

is he the main antagonist, or is he just one of the many obstacles u will have to overcome in Arkham City? either way, I think the game will open the door for those who dont know who hugo strange is. excited to see where all of this goes.

God i hope not,Hardy is an amazing actor but i was hoping for a more traditional villain,like Penguin for eg.

@BatDump I think he's the main antagonist or one of them since he's in charge of Arkham City

Hugo Strange could be good, but I'm not taking this photo as proof. There are a few bald Batman rogues.

@rocketman

You prefer penguin over Hugo Strange...I'm sorry but that just sounds like such a bad idea

The problem with this tom hardy as Hugo Strange is that in arkham city he is a old man while tom is no where near as old. People will be confused if they play the game first then see the movie

Hardy shaved his head for his new role in "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy", not "The Dark Knight Rises".

Shooting doesn't begin on "The Dark Knight Rises" for months.

We don't even know who the damned villans are yet for sure? Hugo may be in, he may not.

Thank you very much PhantomClone for providing the only sane comment on this thread, including the so-called article, which is nothing but one damned big lie.

Great, Tom Hardy is in one of Hollywood's endless remakes.
minkowski writes:
on January 11th, 2011 at 5:14:55 PM

Pardon me, it's not a remake, it's an adaptation of an old le Carre novel, although Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy DID appear on BBC in 1979 as a seven-part miniseries.

How about something original, HollowFools?

"or more like he is in the comics, which is strong, intelligent and responsible for paralyzing Batman."

I think you mean to write "..where he is strong, intelligent...".

@Herpes,i will also take Catwoman or Riddler too.
encoreyourface writes:
on January 11th, 2011 at 5:47:59 PM

as a main antagonist that idea should be shoved so far into Lohans twat where no one would even WANT to retreive it, but as a side character ... not a bad idea.

@Phantom and @Mink are completely right, even if filming has begun this is hardly proof that Strange is in it.

first its january, and filming starts in may( sorry Alex but think before you give us news, this is about as reliable as the national enquire) second off, I see him as the black mask not strange, Strange would not be a bad choice, and yes Bane would make sense.

As I can see sophia or Talia in the picture taking over the mob, avenging one there fathers death, and by doing that she hires Bane, on top of that the Black Mask or Huge Strange are also making trouble for the Bat.

The best thing about Nolan is that when it comes to batman's universe he is more realistic than the other helmers(imo). But regardles weve got 5 to 6 months before filming begins on this, so whatever Hardy is doing, its most likely not anything for Batman....

@Phantom Clone In X

Sounds logical. Movieweb showed photos of Hardy on set of "TTSS" before this report, so it sounds like whoever reported that Hardy shaved his head for "The Dark Knight Rises" .... geez, that sounds like a bad porno ... is talking out their ass.

Besides, in the photos, he's wearing a cap. Where's the chrome dome ?


In the Movieweb photos, Tom was sporting a short blond, Thomas Jane as Stander, type of haircut.

I'm not going to care one bit about this movie until an actual trailer (Not a teaser) hits.
