As Tom Hardy has been cast for the 'Batman Begins' and 'The Dark Knight' final sequel, a lot of suggestions of who he might or in some cases SHOULD play. One of the most vocals has been Deadshot (second only to Black Mask.)
So having the natural charm of Hardy, as seen clearly in 'Bronson' and 'Inception', Deadshot could work as comedy relief and simultaneously pose a physical threat to Batman could balance the tragedy that comes with the events surrounding 'The Dark Knight'.
As Batman is a gadget and martial arts genius, Deadshot is a weaponry one.
Being one of those not-that-but-still-a-little-obscure rogues, it will depend a lot in the performer and the costume design, how attractive to the audience the character will be. In this case, Deadshot's costume is really adaptable to Nolan's universe. He's a master marksman that prefers wrist-mounted guns. So the only thing that may look out of place would be the guns, but the overall look of Deadshot in the movie can be really loyal to it's comicbook counterpart.
but a promising MMA Fighter, and a really tall S.O.B., put him in a muscle-gaining routine and you have your BANE.
