Christian Bale has heaped praise on his The Dark Knight Rises co-star Tom Hardy and admits that he would like to work with the British actor again.
The pair are set to face off as Batman and Bane in The Dark Knight Rises later this summer as the Christopher Nolan franchise comes to an end.
But Bale admits that there has been an isolation to these roles and he would like to work with Hardy again on something else.
Speaking to Empire the actor said: "Tom is phenomenal. He’s an extraordinary actor. If I were a director I would want Tom to be in my movies. He knows his shit.
"But it’s a funny distance that you have in these movies, literally, by being cocooned by a cowl. I don’t truly feel like I’ve worked with Gary (Oldman), even though we’ve done three movies together.
"I don’t really feel like I’ve worked with Gary because I’m here in this darkness every time. And likewise with Tom, we’re both behind these masks.
"He’s feeling that isolation as well. It’s a strange feeling. So we agreed after this we’d like to work with each other on something one day!"
The Dark Knight Rises promises to be one of the biggest movies of the year as Bale takes on the role of Bruce Wayne for the final time.
The movies comes four years after the billion dollar success of The Dark Knight.
The Dark Knight Rises is released 20th July.
