We’ve seen and read much about the character of Bane in the forthcoming The Dark Knight Rises, but we haven’t heard much from the man who will bring this character to life.
English actor Tom Hardy spoke to the UKPA about portraying one of the darkest men in Gotham City.
He said: “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.”
While he felt comfortable balancing the darker side of his character, the Warrior star said it took him a while to get used to wearing the infamous Bane mask.
“Bane’s mask is tight, actually,” he admitted. “I got used to it, but you get used to anything really, in time.”
The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan, will be released in July.
