I'm kind of intrigued by the casting of Tom Hardy as Bane. Kind of a bold choice but I have always felt Tom Hardy has been underrated as an actor and he will finally kind of get his due in the mainstream. Going into the last movie, I scratched my head at casting Heath Ledger as the Joker but that turned out to be a brilliant choice. I kind of see the same thing going on with Tom Hardy as Bane.
Good point on the Ledger casting. I had the same thoughts when I originally heard he was taking on the role. And lo and behold that may have been the best cinematic performance I've personally seen.
