Tom Hardy Joins Christopher Nolan’s Batman 3; Edward Norton Pouts In the Corner

Poor Edward Norton just can’t catch a break.

Per Deadline Fort Calhoun, Tom Hardy has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Batman film. The role is unknown, as is the sequel’s actual plot, and this is far from an official confirmation… but reporting this now saves us from having to link to an obnoxious “Toldja!” post later on down the road.

Hardy worked with Nolan on Inception, a film that many people see as one he stole from his more recognizable co-stars, but his critical breakout came in the fairly brilliant and original biopic Bronson for director Nicolas Winding Refn. He’s currently in production on the John Le Carre adaptation Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy for director Tomas Alfredson and McG’s romantic comedy This Means War, but his next film to hit theaters should be the mixed martial arts flick Warrior. The opportunity to join the third Batman film came about after Hardy’s next project, George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, saw it’s production start date moved back by a year.
