Tom Hardy To Play Dr. Hugo Strange In The Dark Knight Rises?

I love it, there has been so much news on The Dark Knight Rises lately, and you can be sure this trend won’t be ending anytime soon. The latest piece of news is about the film’s newest cast member, Tom Hardy. Word has it that he will be taking a villain role, the villain will be Dr. Hugo Strange.

It does seem odd that Dr. Strange would be the villain here, he’s not exactly the most well known villain. According to Wikipedia though, he was one of the first recurring villains. It seems as if he is a mad-scientist and a master of psychology, which could make for some interesting material I guess.

Once again, this is by no means confirmed, although it does come from a very reliable source. I’m betting it’s true, but only time will tell.

Your thoughts?
