Tom Hardy wants to be Bane again

You have our permission to do so, Tom

As most of you would know, Bane had an anticlimactic death in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight film series – Catwoman blew a hole in his chest, thanks. However, for Tom Hardy, his time as the brutish masked supervillian isn't quite over.

MTV asked the Legend actor if he'd like to return to the DC cinematic universe, now that it's being rebooted (and with George Miller, who Tom worked with in Mad Max: Fury Road, being rumoured to direct Man of Steel 2).

"Of course, I'm Bane!" he replied. "Who would I want to win out in a fight between Superman and Batman? I would like to hold the pair of them under the water until the bubbles stop."

We're taking it that he means Bane could easily defeat the two. Bane's return to DC films is unlikely, as Comicbook.com points out, but who's to say Tom can't play another hero or villain?
