Tom Hardy on ‘The Dark Knight Rises’: Bane mask was a challenge

Tom Hardy is currently promoting his new movie This Means War, which means he’ll probably be asked about The Dark Knight Rises a lot in the coming weeks. The Press Association caught up with Hardy at the UK premiere of This Means War last night, and asked about his experience in The Dark Knight Rises and wearing the Bane mask.

Speaking at the premiere of his latest film, This Means War, Tom said: “Bane’s mask is tight, actually. I got used to it, but you get used to anything really, in time.” The actor has described the character as “brutal” and “heavy-handed”, but said that he had no problem separating himself from the role. “I didn’t get into a dark place at all. A lot of dark characters are easy to have distance from, it’s something I feel comfortable with, I suppose.”
