‘Dark Knight Rises’ Director Is ‘Genius,’ Tom Hardy Says

'I just trust him and how he slowly feeds what he's about to do to the world,' Bane actor says of Christopher Nolan's 'enigmatic' methods.

The only problem with Christopher Nolan’s hugely anticipated “The Dark Knight Rises” is that no one involved in the project can talk about it, and with such secrecy comes obsessive fanboy quests for spoilers and on-set footage and photos .

When MTV News caught up with “Rises” star Tom Hardy as he promoted another of his anticipated films, “Warrior,” we asked what he thinks about the incessant quests for details about his character Bane and the rest of the film.

“I think it just shows that people are really into it. It’s great,” Hardy said. “If you love something, why not follow it?”

He added that he doesn’t much care for those who seek out spoilers, however, and also hasn’t paid much attention to the photos that have been released, official or not.

“There are photos out there; it’s nice to see them,” he said, before changing the direction of the conversation toward more general territory. “Chris Nolan is amazing. How he releases his films, he’s a very enigmatic human being. It’s genius, what he does, and I just trust him and how he slowly feeds what he’s about to do to the world.”

Speaking of one of the things Nolan and company have fed to the world, we asked for his reaction to Anne Hathaway’s catsuit .

“I’ve seen it, obviously. I’ve seen it up front,” he said, not willing to expand on the subject. “I think everything Chris Nolan and every person at Warner Bros. [does] is amazing,” he continued with a cheeky smile. “As I do Lionsgate as well [the studio releasing 'Warrior']. Funny, isn’t it?” he said when his “Warrior” co-star Joel Edgerton burst out laughing at Hardy’s politically correct outpourings of love for everyone. “Mercenary of me,” he joked, proud to be toeing the company line. “Ka-ching!”
