Emma Thomas, who is one of the producers on the latest Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, has revealed how impressed she was with English actor Tom Hardy, who plays Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Emma also admitted that Batman himself Christian Bale is the perfect person for an actor such as Tom Hardy to go up against in a movie.
Thomas explained, “Tom made a massive physical transformation for the role. It really is an intense performance. He finally feels like a match for Batman – both physically and mentally”. She added, “Christian Bale and Tom Hardy are both such fiercely committed actors that pitching them as adversaries works incredibly well.”
Emma Thomas then went on to talk a little bit about Catwoman, who is played by Anne Hathaway, although she did not really give too much away. Emma continued, “it’s completely new, you never quite know where you are with her.” Everybody has been sworn to secrecy with The Dark Knight Rises and nobody is giving anything away. We will just have to wait until July 20, when The Dark Knight Rises finally hits the big screen.
