The Press Association talked to Tom Hardy at the Premiere of “This Means War” (Also why did Tom say “Yes” to a MC G movie?) here’s what Tom Said about the Mask:
“Bane’s mask is tight, actually. I got used to it, but you get used to anything really, in time.”
The actor has described the character as “brutal” and “heavy-handed”, but said that he had no problem separating himself from the role.
“I didn’t get into a dark place at all. A lot of dark characters are easy to have distance from, it’s something I feel comfortable with, I suppose.”
