This isn’t confirmed. But the Elton John biopic”Rocketman” may have its lead. And it’s none other than Bane himself. Tom Hardy is reportedly being considered for the role for the film from Michael Gracey. It would certainly be an interesting choice. And to be fair, I’d rather see Hardy take risks on projects and avoid Gerard Butler’s crap chick flicks and second rate action flicks he’s done after “300”.
