Things We Saw Today: Tom Hardy Continues To Strain Credulity That He Is Actually A Real Person

Did he pose with a cute kid dressed as Bane again? Nope. He went on a date with a fan of his who’s suffering from an aggressive form of cancer after being informed by fiancée Charlotte Riley of said fan’s desire to meet him. Said 23-year-old Kayleigh Duff: “I nearly died when I saw him. I was shaking. He was so lovely and down to earth. We had lunch and tea and scones and he bought me a diamond necklace.” Emphasis alllll mine. (Digital Spy)

Bane Gets Back-Breaking Poses In His Lifelike TDKR Hot Toys Figure

Besides the artist who repaints character dolls, I’d probably say Hot Toys does the best job at replicating an actor’s precise looks in doll form. Their Loki, based on Tom Hiddleston’s character in The Avengers, still takes the cake for me but their recently revealed Bane from The Dark Knight Rises also does a pretty great job looking like actor Tom Hardy. This is also the first Hot Toys figure I’ve seen with its shirt off, which is vaguely uncomfortable. You’ll see why…

Bane the Freestyle Rapper [VIDEO]

So maybe Bane’s face being covered by a mask, coupled with his accent, meant that he was a bit hard to understand during The Dark Knight Rises. If that gives people room to dub over his scenes with freestyle rapping, I’m all for it. Whoever this guy is, his Bane voice is scarily accurate. I’m not 100% convinced it’s not Tom Hardy, unable to let go of the character.

Wally Pfister’s Transcendence, Starring Johnny Depp, Is Looking More Awesome By the Minute

We’re getting a surprising amount of information about the plot of the upcoming Johnny Depp-starring sci-fi flick Transcendence, considering it’s executive produced by the notoriously secretive Christopher Nolan and directed by Wally Pfister, a frequent collaborator of his. I remember that people were scratching their heads at what the heck Inception would be about even after the trailer was released. But courtesy of The Wrap, we now have a basic plot for the film… and it looks awesome.

Beware: If you consider basic plot information for a film that may undergo substantial revisions by the time it makes its way to your eyeballs spoilers, don’t click the jump, as they are unmarked. You’ve been warned.
