The English actor, who plays the evil Bane in the latest film in Christopher Nolan's superhero franchise, said that he preferred to watch other TV shows.
"I wasn't a fan of Batman as a child, not at all, really," Hardy told The Daily Telegraph.
"I know that sounds a bit strange, but I was more into The Littlest Hobo and things like that."
