Tom Hardy cast by ‘Inception’ director in third ‘Batman’ film

Tom Hardy, the British breakout star of this summer’s box office smash Inception, will be reuniting with director Christopher Nolan with a role in his next Batman film, Deadline.com is reporting.

Sources are mum on what role the actor has been set for, but say he will have a leading role.

The Riddler has been confirmed as the main villain for the third installment in Nolan’s interpretation of the Batman film franchise, with speculation for months that Hardy’s Inception co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt could fill the role.

But maybe—just maybe—Hardy will be the one to fit into that green suit. Or whatever edgy costume the designers will come up with.

Hardy is currently in Vancouver filming the romantic comedy This Means War, co-starring Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon and will also be starring in the adaptation of the John Le Carre novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

The yet-to-be titled third Batman film will be tentatively released on July 20, 2012.
