Fun Batman Rumor Time: Tom Hardy as Hugo Strange?

11.17.2010

Batman casting rumors are fun.

This rumor concerns who Tom Hardy might be playing in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Last time we thought it might be Clayface. Now another familiar name is being brought up--Hugo Strange.

Batman-News offered this: "I’ve heard that Tom Hardy is in fact going to play the villain. My source strongly believes that Hardy is going to be playing Hugo Strange. This is the first bit of information from this person that I’m publishing, however they have been accurate in the past. For example, this person told me weeks before the recent Christoper Nolan interview that The Riddler would not be appearing in the film. They also mentioned that Rachel Weisz and Anne Hathaway were in the running for the lead female role a couple of weeks before Deadline posted their list. Given their track record so far, I wanted to post this Hardy news that I received via email. Again, this should just be taken as rumor."

I know many of you had suggested Strange as the potential male villain. We know that there will be a female villian, but aren't sure yet who exactly that will be.

But who is Hugo Strange? "an insane psychologist and chemical genius who knows Batman's secret identity and lusts to take the identity for himself. Just as The Batman was familiar with him, Strange knew of his adversary long before they met. Cursing an underling for not killing him when he had the chance, Strange declared that "The Batman is the only man with the imagination to sense the exact nature of our plans." Strange had first gained fame in the world of psychology when he claimed to have fully analyzed the Dark Knight from afar. Strange would lend credence to his own claims by learning of Batman's true identity of Bruce Wayne. However, his hatred of Batman turned into more and more of a deranged obsession, using his medical expertise to hatch a series of bizarre plots based around genetics and mind control in order to defeat Batman and possibly take his place."

Who would you rather have: Clayface or Hugo Strange?

Seeing that pic of Hugo in Batman's costume made me imagine Tom Hardy in the Batsuit doing his version of crime fighting while Christian Bale's tied up in Arkham's basement. Oh the possibilities!

If this is true, then we are in for a treat. Hardy is a force of nature. If youve only seen him in Inception then you have no idea what this guy is capable of; check out Bronson.

In retrospect: Harvey Dent would have made an AMAZING lead villian in the third film. Oh well.

Scarface and Catman, back in the day Catman fought batman to a standstill. Bane and Deathstroke would be cool as well. Both totally doable in the nolan verse, two badass murders/assains hoped up on highgrade covert performance enhancers.

I dont believe Hugo Strange is going to be the "main villian". Nolan will most likely use him as he did with Harvey Dent and show the decline of a normal person turned villian throughoout the movie.

I believe that Nolan has another foe in mind for Batman because Hugo Strange just seems a little too underwhelming.

Two Face Dead?

I don't know how to feel about Hugo Strange since I know nothing of him expect for what I just read here, but...

Remember, Two Face was never shown as actually dead. Batman fell from the same height and did not die. Two Face was only shown unconscious. They never said he had died.

They DID however say that Harvey Dent was dead. And "Harvey Dent" did die for all intents and purposes.

Could Two Face appear in this movie? I think so. Hell, they never tipped us off on the

Personally....I sure hope so.

What...?

What is all this stuff with Harley Quinn and Clayface? For starters you guys will never see Clayface in Nolan's world. He is a meta-human. Remember as awkward as it sounds, Nolan is keeping his bat universe semi real. As for Harley Quinn; I would love to see her too. However, that once again is never going to happen. Nolan hates the character! He stated that when he was questioned so many times as to if she would appear in the Dark Knight. As for Hugo, it would make sense. Heck even

Meh

I would really love to see Basil on the big screen. If Hugo is in fact the villain this may be a bit boring compared to TDK.

Quinn and Deadshot

Batman needs a lurking killer to go after, the opposite of the showy Joker. Could have been Twoface if they didn't screw up TDK. Honestly, his whole conversion at the end is total garbage

I'd rather see Hardy as Hugo based off the character's background. But would also like to see Scarecrow come back for one more fight with the Bat Man.

Agreed...Scarecrow went out like too much of a bitch in both films. He needs to come back and give bats a good fight. If Hardy is Hugo than I could see the two trapping Batman and dosing him with fear gas causing him to have a prolonged tripped out nightmare. Hell they can throw Manbat into the dream and have Batman fight him to symbolize Bruce's struggle with the Batman identity.

Well Nolan's Batman series is much more Psychological than any other incarnation of the story, so how about this? Hardy plays Strange, bring back murphy as scarecrow, and the female villain is...Harley Quinn. Quinn would be a great way to show the impact the joker still has on batman. Three psychologists turned crazy...too much??

The fact is

even if this is true and Hugo Strange is the main villain in TDKR, we still have no idea what Nolan is going to do with Hardy in the role in terms of characterization, motivation or plot. Nolan has shown he's not afraid to bend the "comic book" version of these characters pretty significantly in order to fit the themes and the narrative he wants to portray. I guess I'm saying that it's really not enough to get upset over yet (if you were hoping for another villain) because Nolan can and will do

This sounds like an awesome angle for Nolan to play with, but I can't help but feel it's not enough to carry the third and probable epic finale to Nolan's famed trilogy. I can't think of anyone who could top The Joker but at least some A-list villains would have come close. Again, very cool angle, but it's a bit underwhelming when compared to the carnage we saw in The Dark Knight.

Sounds good to me!

This sounds like a good way to go. Having a villain who pretends to be the hero sounds really interesting and unlike anything I've seen in a superhero film yet. Tom Hardy makes perfect sense for that role as I can imagine him being as tough if not tougher than Batman, both physically and mentally. Cannot fucking wait! I still wish the film was titled The Caped Crusader though as it would give each film a different Batman moniker.

I don't care to speculate about the theme, but so far Nolan's films have had one flashy , comic-booky villain (Scarecrow, Joker) and one grounded villain with connections to Bruce Wayne (Ra's, Harvey Dent). If Hardy is Strange as the grounded villain, and we get an actress as Talia for the fanboy villain, that's a choice I'll be a little underwhelmed with.

As much as I would like to see Nolan do an incarnation of Clayface, I don't think Clayface has the stature to carry one whole film as

As much as I would like to see Nolan do an incarnation of Clayface, I don't think Clayface has the stature to carry one whole film as the big bad, so I wouldn't doubt Hugo Strange is in the running.

I'll take any of them as long as they dont turn it in to far fetched nonsense. The cool thing about those flicks is that it feels like the things you see on screen are really happening somewhere in the world.

Clayface > Hugo Strange

Clayface seems like a much better choice. If the films are following the idea of escalation, in the first film Batman battles criminals, the second film he battles a true villain in every sense of the word with Joker, the next step is battling a super villain with powers. I love Nolan's real world take on the comic book film but I'm really curious to see what he could do with something more super natural. Clayface seems perfect for that and Hardy seems perfect for Clayface.

I'd like to see Basil Karlo the original clayface but not interested in his role in Nolans world. He's an actor, upset by a remake of his film and master of disguise/acting. Not sure how it fits into Batmans tale of redemption. Unless Karlo disguised as Batman which seems too easy for Nolan. Karlo (dressed as Batman) blamed for Dents death, the real Batman is a hero once again. Too simple for Nolan and lacks end of trilogy impact.

I am a huge Batman fan and I have never heard of this villain before but he sounds badass and right up Nolan's ally, it could even lend itself to a return of The Scarecrow. Weisz and Hathaway would also be perfect for Catwoman and Talia Ahl Guhl

I think Strange would be perfect (and ironically, he has a central role in the new Gotham City game coming out). I still think the film needs a more action oriented villain, and I am guessing the female villain will be Catwoman. But the psychological angle with Strange is perfect. We've seen Batman take on his opposite in Dark Knight, but that was more about what the two characters stood for. Strange would be able to make the story more personal for both Batman and Bruce Wayne. Where as Joker

I'm not savvy in Batman lore, but this is exactly the kind of thing that could shake up the franchise the way it needs. What makes Nolan's Batman work so well is not just paying his dues to the characters, but taking them in interesting directions. He's not the only director to attempt this, but he's the only one working with a character with no super-powers in a city that doesn't really exist. So, you know, keep things true to life, but make the characters however you like, because, yeah, it

HUSH

Strange is a great character but I'm not feeling him since we've been down the road a little with Scarecrow. Clayface would be awesome but doesn't fit in Nolan's world. Tom Hardy as HUSH is more interesting as the rivalry goes back to Bruce as a child. The only bad is you have to build a new relationship through flash backs. Would've worked better if they introduced Thomas Elliot "HUSH" in Batman Begins.

I've only read the one book with Hush which introduced him. I think knowing who he is now kinda kills the character for the screen. Also, like you said, it would of had to of been written in earlier.

I can get behind that. Similar motivation to what some expected from the Riddler, from that description above, and will be interesting to watch that combust with the Nolan-verse.

Who cares? It's Tom Hardy in a Nolan directed Batman film. He could play Catwoman and it would still be an awesome movie. I don't get why you guys get so worked up about who the villain will be. First Penguin, then Catwoman, then Riddler then Clayface, now this. Who cares what it is. It'll be a great film regardless.
BTW, great job using the Bronson pic. He looks exactly like Hugo there.

I'm not that familiar with Hugo Strange, and I consider myself a Batman fan, so I think it would be good idea to have a lesser known villian. His description sounds like it would fit right in with Nolan's universe. Maybe Strnage tracks down Mr Reese from Dark Knight and gets him to tell Batman's identity.

As much as I love the Clayface character, there's just no way he would fit in the tone of Nolan's movies, so between the two I'd choose Strange. And if it is indeed Hugo Strange as the villain, I'm willing to bet that the "female character" being cast will be Catwoman, so there'll at least be a more popular, bankable villain in it as well.

Hugo Strange would seem to be like having The Riddle without actually having him, you know? As far as HS vs CF... Strange over Clayface, one hundred percent. I read somewhere that a Nolan adaptation of Clayface might have him as a "master-of-disguise" sort of deal, with him being able to pose as a plethora of faces. However, as BHak88 mentioned below that Clayface would provide more "action", suggesting he be a big blob of clay. I'm sorry, but way too "Sandman in Spiderman 3" for me. I'm sure

I could almost see how Hugo Strange would work into the narrative that ended The Dark Knight.

Batman, on the run from the police for "killing" Harvey Dent and others, also faces a backlash from the city. In comes Hugo Strange posing as Batman. In the end, Hugo is defeated and blamed as the fake Batman who killed Dent, while Bruce Wayne's Dark Knight is lauded as innocent and everything is set right once again.

Ben Kingsly would make a pretty damn good strange.
And I really did want to see Hardy playing Black mask.
I also really don't want a female villain, I don't like any of them.

I also really don't want a female villain, I don't like any of them.

Between Clayface and Hugo, I'd take Clayface anyday! What's the action going to be if it's Hugo? An angry counseling session? Awful idea. Might be ok for a scarecrow like appearance, but not the main villain.
