Rumours about Tom Hardy's role in The Dark Knight Rises have emerged.

According to a source for website Batman News, director Christopher Nolan has cast his Inception star as DC Comics character Dr Hugo Strange in his superhero sequel.

Scientist Strange first appeared as a Bat-villain in Detective Comics #36 in 1940.

A separate report, from ScriptFlags, has claimed that Dark Knight Rises will be inspired by the graphic novel Prey, by Doug Moench and Paul Gulacy.

Prey follows Strange as he hypnotises a police officer into becoming a vigilante in an attempt to bring Batman out of hiding.

The movie's cinematographer Wally Pfister recently revealed that sections of The Dark Knight Rises will be filmed in IMAX.

Nolan is thought to be still searching for a leading lady.
