Now I know what you’re thinking, “Come on Nerdlocker! Quit with the rumors, jerks! William H. Macy is not going to play Killer Croc and John Travolta is not going to play Victor Zsasz“
Now, I couldn’t agree more, these Batman rumors are getting tiresome. (Although it would be awesome to see the entire cast of Wild Hogs as Batman’s villians if we’re talking about Macy and Travolta.)
However, this rumor comes from a site that claims to have a reliable source that has provided correct information in the past. To further validate his claim, the site has stated that this is the first time he has actually posted anything the source has said because he was as hesitant as we are.
Now. Without further ado, this week’s Batman rumor is….
Tom Hardy will be playing Hugo Strange in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises.
Personally, I’m all for this casting rumor. It’s not far fetched like Eddie Murphy playing Riddler, Betty White playing Catwoman or Brad Garrett playing Robin. This rumor is plausible.
Tom Hardy is perfectly capable of playing a multi-layered, complex, egomaniacal mad man which is perfect for Hugo Strange’s character. A character hell bent on exposing the truth behind Batman and Bruce Wayne so much that he dresses up like the Dark Knight in his spare time. All he’s missing is the neckbeard and shaved head and we’re in business.
Now, I know you’re sick of all these casting rumors, but I wanted to take this time to showcase the amazing photoshop skills of the internet. Let’s reminisce on some of the better casting rumors of the past in this gallery. Prepare yourself. There are some things you can’t unsee.
