Inception's Tom Hardy joins Christopher Nolan's 'Batman 3'
Christopher Nolan has finally kicked out the last remaining hangers-on from that Inception party he threw this summer, so he's back to working on his third Batman movie. His latest move? Hiring Inception actor Tom Hardy, natch. You didn't think that was the last we'd see of Eames, did you?
There's no word on what role Hardy will play, but Deadline.com confirms he's all signed up. It'll give him something to do in between the release of This Means War with Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon and the film adaptation of John Le Carre's Tinker, Tailor Soldier, Spy.
It's really looking to us like Hardy may be a choice to play the Riddler, but don't disregard Nolan's ability to surprise. If Hardy shows up playing a killer like Victor Zsasz, it'll make Hardy's lead role in the soon-to shoot Mad Max: Fury Road look like a kiddie flick. Just please, good lord, don't let him be Robin.
