If you’re reading this, please don’t be misguided. Tom Hardy stated with MTV that he took one look at Bane’s character and just said “They’ve must have got the wrong man. I can’t…I can’t play that.” Of course, for some time now many people have felt indifferent about Tom Hardy playing as Bane since the character is Latino, huge, and has venom. Many were disappointed with Christopher Nolan’s version of Bane and his choice of actor, Tom Hardy, who is from London (United Kingdom) and is shorter than Christian Bale. Many cringed at the thought of “How the hell is this going to work? He’s short, no venom, and he’s English. What the hell Nolan…what the hell!” See Hardy’s reaction down below in the MTV clip.
For a while now, everyone has been saying to trust Nolan. We all have at this point with the movie now out in theaters, we can now answer this…”Who would have played Bane if it wasn’t Tom Hardy?” Do you even like how Bane is portrayed in the movie? Is Bane our Batman version of Darth Vader? Was Hardy’s portrayal of the character good enough or should it have been more gruesome? Comment below.
