No doubt the introduction of the next villain in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, which is none others than Bane (played by Tom Hardy), will be inevitably compared to the late Heath Ledger's unforgettable performance as The Joker in THE DARK KNIGHT (2008). Here's what Tom Hardy has to say about being compared to The Joker.
The Joker didn't care...He just wanted to see the world burn, and he was a master of chaos and destruction, unscrupulous and crazy. Bane is not that guy. There is a very meticulous and calculated way about Bane. There is a huge orchestration of organization to his ambition. He is also a physical threat to Batman. There is nothing vague about Bane. No jokes. He's a very clean, clear villain.
Well, there's no point comparing Bane against The Joker since both of them are different villains with different personalities. And we all can only hope Tom Hardy really nails his part as Bane when THE DARK KNIGHT RISES opens on July 19.
