Tom Hardy is ''playing God'' in 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

The actor has been cast as villain Bane in the forthcoming Batman movie and admitted after being overwhelmed working with Gary Oldman on 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy', he was less intimidated on the superhero movie because he had to have an altercation with his co-star, who plays Commissioner Gordon.

He said: ''I spent my entire experience with Gary [on 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'] staring at him and not returning any lines because I think he's God.

''The second time [on 'The Dark Knight Rises'] I was playing God, so I ignored him. Kicked him a bit, that kind of thing. Gary Oldman is one of my heroes, I did nothing but glean from him.''

In 'The Dark Knight Rises', Tom wears a mouth-muzzling mask and he admits he found the experience, as well as playing strong, silent bootlegger Forrest Bondurant in his other new movie 'Lawless', difficult because he finds it hard to stay quiet.

He explained during a press conference for 'Lawless' at the Cannes Film Festival: ''These characters are difficult to play because I have a very busy head.

''I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.''
