Tom Hardy: "Bane Is A Very Clean, Clear Villain"
He's dismissed comparisons between Bane & Heath Ledger's The Joker...
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 34-year old stressed that fans can expect a different sort of enemy when it comes to making comparisons between his role and The Joker, stating Bane is "a very clean, clear villain."
Hardy explained: "The Joker didn't care. He just wanted to see the world burn, and he was a master of chaos and destruction, unscrupulous and crazy.
"Bane is not that guy. There is a very meticulous and calculated way about Bane. There is a huge orchestration of organisation to his ambition. He is also a physical threat to Batman."
He added: "There is nothing vague about Bane. No jokes. He's a very clean, clear villain."
The Dark Knight Rises hits cinemas on 20th July, 2012.
