Inception's Tom Hardy reteams with Christopher Nolan for Batman 3

In filling out his cast for the Dark Knight sequel, director Christopher Nolan has turned to his dream-heist "forger" for an as-yet-unspecified role.

Tom Hardy was set to take over for Mel Gibson as the road warrior himself in George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, but since that's been delayed at least a year, he had a hole in his schedule that Nolan seems all too happy to fill.

Popular wisdom has it that Hardy will play a villain—which makes sense, as the Caped Crusader doesn't have a whole lot of allies, save Robin. And Hardy may be many things—dashing, muscular, British—but he's no Boy Wonder.

That same wisdom wants to see Hardy as the Riddler, but if we had to guess—and we will—we're gonna say he's playing Clayface, an actor who gets doused with some freaky goo that turns him into a mad shapeshifter.

In other words, a different kind of forger.
