When Christian Bale played Batman in 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, his adversary was Bane, an escaped convict from an island prison in South America who’s “superpower” was abnormal physical strength.
Maybe he wasn’t as impressive a villain as Heath Ledger’s Joker, but the movie is a fitting end to a superb trilogy.
Now, eight years later, and it appears Tom Hardy still remembers his lines.
A video was shared recently on Twitter, and shows Hardy, with a ball box over his face, reciting Bane’s lines to his dog.

While we haven’t got the deets on when it was filmed, we have a sneaky suspicion that the dog in the clip is Hardy’s beloved Labrador Woody, who passed away in 2017.
If you’re having trouble understanding what he’s saying here, well… yeah. Here’s our best guess at a translation:
“You think darkness is your ally?” Hardy asks. “I was born in the dark, molded by it…I didn’t see the light until I was just a man and it was blinding!”
Or, at least, something like that.
The Oscar-nominated actor has a thing for muffling his words, and he loves to make viewers focus on him in an effort to understand what it is his character is saying.
Think of his roles in The Revenant, Legend, and Dunkirk. I mean, even in Peaky Blinders, Hardy comes across as if he is wearing some sort of invisible muzzle.
Of course, in real life, we know Hardy can speak clearly – and he can even rap:
Missed that? It’s a pleasure.
