Feb 15, 2012, 6:01 GMT
Tom Hardy has made a 'massive' physical transformation to star in 'The Dark Knight Rises'.
The 'Warrior' actor - who is set to portray Bane in the movie - has bulked up for the motion picture, according to producer Emma Thomas.
She said: 'Tom made a massive physical transformation for the role... It really is an intense performance.'
'He finally feels like a match for Batman - both physically and mentally.'
As well as being a good match between Bane and Batman - who is played by Christian Bale - Emma admitted the 34-year-old star and Christian are 'fiercely committed' which makes their onscreen rivalry work perfectly.
She added to Total Film magazine: 'Christian Bale and Tom Hardy are both such fiercely committed actors that pitching them as adversaries works incredibly well - they have such a great chemistry on camera.'
Anne Hathaway is set to take up the role of Catwoman in the motion picture, and Emma promises the brunette beauty's character will come with a few surprises.
She explained: 'It's completely new, and it's a really interesting role. You never quite know where you are with her.'
