1st pic of bulked-up Tom Hardy from Dark Knight Rises set

When we heard that Tom Hardy, who stole the show in Inception as far as some of us were concerned, had been cast as Bane, the guy who broke Batman's back, in the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises, we knew the guy had the talent to pull it off. But did he have the muscle to pull it off?

Well ... he sure does now.

A blogger recently snapped a pic of Hardy on the set with a shaved head—and bulked up more than we've ever seen before.

Wrote charlidos, "Oh my god! He DOES have a shaved head! And he looks HUGE again."

All we know is ... Batman had better watch out.
