In a move that has got me jumping out of my seat, Christopher Nolan has decided to reunite with Inception star Tom Hardy (Bronson) for the upcoming Batman sequel.  Deadline reports that Hardy will have a lead role but other than that there are no further details on the matter.

If you ask me I can’t see him being a good guy in this one unless there is some unknown character created to help Batman.  I could see Hardy playing The Penguin but instead of being fat, he would just be a really powerful crime lord.  Although I’m sure he could play The Riddler as well, I think I’d rather see him as a crime boss.

His casting in Batman shouldn’t have any effect on his upcoming projects like This Means War and the continually delayed Mad Max movie.
