A new possible villain joins the Batman crew: Tom Hardy. Fellow hero, or Heath Ledger’s follow-up villain?

So far, so good: Christopher Nolan‘s Batman films have been adored by fans and critics alike, his dark, Frank Miller-inspired vision of Gotham and its inhabitants giving us Christian Bale‘s Batman and even more notably, Heath Ledger‘s The Joker.

Tom Hardy as Bronson - phwoar, what a nutter!

Of course, Bale, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman will all be reprising their roles as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Alfred and Lucius Fox respectively. It’s going to be a huge film as the third instalment will see Batman face off against yet another key member of the Batman villain clientèle.

At the moment, it’s up in the air as to whether new addition Tom Hardy (Inception, Layer Cake, and Bronson) is going to play the villain or not, but I think we all know what the answer is… Question is, who do you think he’s going to play? TFR Towers is beginning to lean towards the community-suggested Black Mask.

What do you think? Poll’s on the right, and we’ve got four logical contenders – the Black Mask, the Penguin, the Riddler and Hush. If you’ve got any better ideas, then comment, and let us know!
