Christian Bale is doing press for his new movie The Fighter and naturally he’s being asked a lot of questions about The Dark Knight Rises. You can find his previous interviews here but I felt like this latest interview deserved it’s own post.

When speaking with MTV, Bale was asked if he was looking forward to having Tom Hardy as an opponent in The Dark Knight Rises. He replied “Yeah, sounds good” and then went on to praise Hardy’s work in Inception and Bronson. As you know by now, Hardy is rumored to be playing Hugo Strange. Did Bale confirm that Hardy will in fact be a villain or did the word “opponent” fly right over his head? Check out the video and decide for yourself.
