A while ago we posted a story on Gfest (Three Inception Stars Want to be The Riddler in Batman 3) that following the success of Inception, Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros were keen on hiring either Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon Levitt or Tom Hardy as The Riddler in Batman 3. Well, it would appear that Hardy has indeed been cast in the upcoming third installment of Nolan's Batman franchise!
Here is an excerpt from the report over at Deadline:
"I'm told that Hardy has been set by his Inception director Chris Nolan for a lead role in the next Batman film at Warner Bros. Insiders are keeping the role secret and won't even say if he's up for a villain role, but that seems a reasonable assumption."Deadline is well known for being VERY reliable with these scoops and while this does not confirm that he'll play The Riddler, that might just be the lead role the site are talking about if that sources information was correct!
However, with recent rumours pointing to Killer Croc being the main villain in Batman 3, could that be the character he'll portray? Who else do you think Hardy would be a good choice for? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!
Batman 3 is set to be released on July 20, 2012!
