http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0428923/ Nathan Jones rose upon the world strongman scene in 1995 and showed promise to become perhaps the top competitor in the world. At 6' 11" and 360 lbs., the giant Australian known as Megaman was an imposing sight and used his great size and strength to place high in the World Musclepower Championships.. Tom Hardy lacked height and had a Brittish accent. I think they goofed in this one. What do you think?

He was also an awful actor in WWE. If you're a sh*t actor even by WWE standards you have no business having a big role in any blockbuster movie

So Tom Hardy has a British accent. Christian Bale isn't American either. And are you saying any gym rat is better than Tom Hardy?

Hell no. Size wasn't the only thing required for that character in Nolan's film.

I think not. Nothing wrong with Tom Hardy.

But did anyone really have that big a problem with Tom Hardy?

Choosing actors based on physical appearance instead of acting capabilities is a stupid thing to do.

There are extremely rare circumstances were physical appearance may ultimately trump acting, such as Andre the Giant's casting in The Princess Bride (Not to speak ill of his acting, because it wasn't half bad).

Hardy wasn't the best choice for bane, no. However, I imagine that Hardy is a million times better as an actor than Jones. I feel that Vin should have gotten the role.

Nathan Jones is awful. Tom Hardy did a great job and it's unfortunate he didn't have more screen time(I want those deleted scenes of Bane training with the LoS).

I think that's an absolutely atrocious idea and would have been a crime against humanity.

Tom Hardy's voice was enough to get praise from me. I was half expecting some giant muscle bound idiot with grunts and yelling. I was actually surprised and in a good way at how Bane was shown. Now maybe Nathan Jones could of played cat women. There really wasn't much farther down that role could of went.

You should make a suicide thread just for how dumb that post was.

I think you have some compressed feelings. You've talked more about bronies and the show than bronies themselves.

Huh? I just think batman is stupid. But that other thread you guys got going on has become pretty annoying.

And you've just finished calling bronies annoying.

You misunderstand, I don't care about bronies. I'm still not sure what a bronie is. I was just trying to troll batman fans. Man I suck at trolling. I think I need more training.

Patience young padawan. The art of trolling requires years of dedicated practice. Train, take your vitamins and say your prayers and one day you too shall be counted amongst the great trolls of our age.

My reaction is close to the gmod episode where the guy asks if anyone wants to know what the bottom of an avatar's shoe looks like.
