You know him as the villainous Bane in this summer’s blockbuster film, The Dark Knight Rises, the final installment in Christopher Nolan’s acclaimed Dark Knight Trilogy, but before actor Tom Hardy donned the Bane mask, he played the bad guy in 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis.
In Star Trek: Nemesis, Hardy starred as a young clone of Star Trek Captain Jean-Luc Picard named Shinzon who plotted the destruction of Earth. The film was the tenth one in the Star Trek franchise and the fourth and final one with the full cast of the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series, starring Patrick Stewart as Picard.
With the success of The Dark Knight Rises, a video of a screen test from Nemesis with Hardy and Stewart is making the rounds online again. You can watch it here below.
Released in 2002, Nemesis is the tenth film in the Star Trek franchise and the fourth and final one with the full cast of the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series, starring Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard. While its predecessor, Insurrection, wasn’t a big hit with fans, at least it wasn’t the box office failure that Nemesis was.
Synopsis: After the Enterprise is diverted to Romulus, supposedly to negotiate a truce, the Federation discovers the Romulans are planning an attack on Earth.
Mark Millar, creator of many of the most talked about comic books of recent memory including Kick-Ass, Nemesis, Old Man Logan, and Civil War, has posted an interesting auction on Ebay for his next creation, Superior. In this auction, Millar has left it to fans and do-gooders alike to name the title character’s secret identity, all in the name of charity.
In the past, Millar has held auctions for roles in Kick-Ass and Nemesis on behalf of special needs units in a school where his brother, Dr. Bobby Millar, has tirelessly raised money for many handicapped children, and the Superior auction is no exception.
In a message via his Twitter account, Mark Millar announced that Tony Scott would be taking the captain’s chair for a feature film adaptation of he and Steven McNiven‘s graphic novel, Nemesis for 20th Century Fox.
Never to shy away from potentially controversial content with other titles such as Wanted and Kick-Ass on his resume, Millar’s Nemesis is not like the superhero stories we’re used to. It follows Matt Anderson, a genius and billionaire who also happens to be one of the world’s greatest fighters. Anderson uses his many resources to set off on a quest for revenge against those who murdered his parents — parents who just so happened to also be super-villains. This makes Anderson something of a villain as well, hunting down cops left and right on his way to facing off against the police chief responsible for the capture of his parents.
Millar talked about the deal on his official site in-depth. You can read the whole thing below!
