Bane is one of the rumored villains for the movie.

He uses a drug called VENOM. This can only mean...

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Tom Hardy will play Aunt May.

That makes no sense, she was clearly Carnage.

Both of you have been deceived. Tom Hardy is playing Aunt May but she'll actually be turning into the one and only...

Would be a hell of a lot better than Strange, Bane and Hush.

Tom Hardy is reportedly starting work on John Hillcoat's 'The Wettest County' (I love that title) this spring. So if anything, he's prepping for that.

With his shaved head look, it's possible that his character in the The Westtest County is either bald, or he's going for that 'two step' George McFly haircut. This movie takes place during the Depression so I wouldn't be surprised.

Might be reading a little too much into the hair thing. None of the actors who played the villains so far did anything radical with their hair. Heath even kept his hair long. Eckhart was blond, when Dent has black hair in the comics etc.

Hmm. That's an interesting point to bring up, but after some thought I have to disagree. That comparison to Eckhart and Heath is a little unfair. Think about it. I know some people may disagree with me here, but I think what makes certain characters like the Joker and Harvey Dent identifable is less so the appearance of their former selves and moreso how they looked after the monstrosities they became.

When you think of the Joker, the essential aesthetics aren't his hair style, but the fact that he's a clown with white skin (or makeup, in this case) and green hair. There have been many artists that have tackled the character, and not all of the designs had short hair either, and I think that illustrates that the Joker's hair lengh is not important when staying faithful to the "look" that makes us identify with that particular villain. Same applies with Harvey Dent. Whilst I believe he had black hair in every depiction in the comics, I think all that's really essential in terms of his look is that he's a young, charming district attorney that later goes on to have his face scarred in half.

Now, am I saying it's essential Strange keeps his look down to nearly every last detail? Well, basically, yes. Because there's not many striking details for that villain to go by. I don't think all characters have to look like they stepped straight out of the comic books, but in Strange's case what sets him apart from the rest of the supporting cast? What makes him eccentric looking? How is he going to stand out from the rest of the GPD besides showing that he's a bit insane? Unlike Eckhart and Ledger, if Hardy really is playing Strange he doesn't have the advantage of "makeup" or "scars" to make him a visually memorable character, he needs to be the bald dude with the beard and the spectacles or nothing about him visually will make you identify him with that character.

Don't misconceive what I'm saying, I'm not saying that "baldness" is unique to Strange, any more than a "moustache" is unique to Gordon, but Gary still fashioned himself after the Year One Gordon because he and the studio knew we would identify the character with that appearance. Same in the case of Zsasz and Ra's Al Ghul for better measure. Those types of characters could have looked nearly unrecognizable from how they were in the comics and still turned in great performances, but at the end of the day I personally don't think it would have felt like he had brought those characters "to life" in any capacity. Not that Zsasz was really brought to life with that tiny bit of screentime, he was just an example of someone who Nolan clearly chose to be portrayed by a bald dude

But anyway, I guess it doesn't matter when a large majority of the public don't even know who Hugo Strange is, but I think if Hardy's role is important (i.e he's the main villain) and he's not wearing a mask, then he's probably doing something to make sure he doesn't look like Eames. That would be kind of boring, even moreso than if you already find the look of Strange boring. I do think people are reading too much into those photos, in any case.

Just because they didn't doesn't mean Tom Hardy won't.

Ya don't say

That's why I said we might be reading too much into his haircut based on the four villains we've had so far. Nolan had none of those actors change anything about their appearance for their roles. That's all I'm saying.

Don't you dare dryface me .





I agree. It is too early for Hardy to be changing his appearance for TDKR. But again, just because Nolan didn't have those actors change their hairstyles doesn't mean he won't have Hardy do so. Especially if Hardy is playing Hugo Strange, who has always been depicted as being bald and having a beard.

The stories were alright, of course nothing as good as BTAS but still better than all of the ADHD cartoons that are on right now. I just really hated the "art". It was too anime for me...
