Christopher Nolan explains why he likes to cover Tom Hardy’s face: 

“I was pretty thrilled with what he did in The Dark Knight Rises with two eyes and couple of eyebrows and a bit of forehead. I thought let’s see what he can do with no forehead, no real eyebrows, maybe one eye. Of course Tom, being Tom, what he does with single eye acting is far beyond what anyone else can do with their whole body. That is just the unique talent of the man, he’s extraordinary.”

“The prosthetics came up onto the lip and feathered onto the lip, so it was almost halfway into the mouth, and, of course, when you speak, the feathering of the prosthetics became loosened, and the last thing Heath wanted to do was to go back and spend another 20 minutes or half an hour trying to get the lips glued back again. So he licked his lips… a lot, and then, slowly, that became a part of the character.” – Gerry Grennell, Heath Ledger’s dialect coach

In the movie, Batman starts beating The Joker and realizes that this is not your ordinary foe. The more I beat him, the more he enjoys it; and Heath was kinda egging me on, going, ‘Go on, go on, go on!’ But he was slamming himself around, and there were tiled walls inside of that set which were cracked and dented. His commitment was total.”
