Tom Hardy Workouts
TOM Hardy accepted the role of Batman’s arch nemesis without even reading the script, and despite director Christopher Nolan trying to talk him out of the part.
“Chris wasn’t sure I’d be interested because I’d have to wear a mask for several months. He wouldn’t tell me anything else about the character, except that he was a very bad guy,” he recalls.
“I said, ‘Let me get this straight. You want me to come work with you, travel around the world, have a stunt team and all the weapons I could possibly want to play with, and all I have to do is wear a mask? I’m in!’
“Bane is a terrorist in both his mentality and his actions. He is physically intimidating and also very intelligent, which makes him even more dangerous.”
