'Dark Knight Rises': Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the End of the Batman Saga (Video)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt belongs to an elite cadre of actors: The Christopher Nolan Club.

The acclaimed director clearly loves to populate his films with certain favorites. He cast Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine and Cillian Murphy in both Inception, his 2010 blockbuster, and this summer's The Dark Knight Rises, the end of his mega-hit Batman trilogy starring another pet actor-collaborator, Christian Bale.

"It was a nice occasion because I took a little bit of time after we wrapped and just said, 'give me a few minutes' because I knew I wouldn't be able to put it back on again and the cowl ... and it was funny. It was a surprisingly poignant moment for me," Bale tells THR.

(He kept the cowl, or the mask, as a memento.)

'Dark Knight Rises': Tom Hardy on Playing Villain Bane, Battling Christian Bale (Video)

The third and final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman saga sees Tom Hardy in his most menacing role yet as the villain Bane, a terrorist hell-bent on destroying Gotham.

Most of Hardy's face is shrouded in The Dark Knight Rises by a black, mechanical mask that his character uses to inhale a drug that gives him fearsome super-strength.

"It was hot and tight and a little bit claustrophobic at times," Hardy tells THR. "But, you know, it was good fun. Most of the time."
