Gary Oldman has been doing the press rounds for "Red Riding Hood" and naturally, he's been grilled about "The Dark Knight Rises," but the veteran actor has been playing it cool and not spilling too many details on Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated and secretive sequel. What we do know is that Tom Hardy will be playing Bane and Anne Hathaway will be taking on Catwoman, though current rumors suggest she will be an ally instead of a foe. And now Oldman has hinted that another villain in the movie will be ripped from the classic pages of the comics.

Gary Oldman has been doing the press rounds for "Red Riding Hood" and naturally, he's been grilled about "The Dark Knight Rises," but the veteran actor has been playing it cool and not spilling too many details on Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated and secretive sequel. What we do know is that Tom Hardy will be playing Bane and Anne Hathaway will be taking on Catwoman, though current rumors suggest she will be an ally instead of a foe. And now Oldman has hinted that another villain in the movie will be ripped from the classic pages of the comics.

Speaking with E!, Oldman said, "I think it's a villain from one of the old, old, from way back from the old comics." He contineud, "It is a Batman villian... It's not going to be the Joker," adding that if he said anymore "they'd kill me."

So, who could it be? There are a number of candidates, including Clayface, Blockbuster, Deadshot and Calendar Man (who has ties to Alberto Falcone, son of Carmine Falcone featured in "Batman Begins"), and also folks featured in past films like Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy and more. Let the speculation begin and toss it into the pile of rumors that have lately included The League Of Shadows being tipped as the primary villains in the film. But a mix of old and new school villains? We like it and it's a pretty fun way to mix things up in the Gotham universe.

Production on "The Dark Knight Rises" begins in May and it will hit theaters on July 20, 2012.
