Costner In “Superman”, Hardy Talks “Knight”

There is reportedly “heightened interest” in Kevin Costner for a key role in the upcoming “Superman” reboot at Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures reports Deadline.

It’s not specified what role Costner is likely to play, though best bet is that he’s to play Jonathan Kent, Clark’s adoptive father.

Meanwhile, Tom Hardy put in an appearance on comedian Alan Carr’s “Chatty Man” talk show recently and was amusingly asked whether he would have to wear a gimp mask like Bane did in 1997’s “Batman & Robin”.

“Only if I feel like it [laughs]… Christopher Nolan will revisit that territory entirely. I wouldn’t go by that [the Bane costume in “Batman & Robin”] at all” he says. He also revealed he has three months to put on around 10-12kg (22-27lbs).
