Actor Tom Hardy is no stranger to the DC Comics universe. He portrayed Bane in the 2012 Christopher Nolan feature The Dark Knight Rises. Hardy was also reported to appear in next summer’s Suicide Squad film, but had to drop out due to scheduling issues.
Now, it appears Hardy will participate in another DC Comics project…though we’re not quite sure what it is.
“It contains elements of all kinds of stuff. From Ocean’s Eleven, to Batman, you can get all the wrappers out and it would be a big, really cool, technicolor Pulp Fiction. It’s a psychological f—fest, it’s absolutely awesome. It’s as if you would take [the Warren Ellis co-created comic book series] Transmetropolitan and make it happen, but it’s not that out there. It’s something which is much more real world. It could be like Heat, it could be f—ing awesome.”
It appears Tom Hardy is channeling his inner Edward Nygma/The Riddler. But fans would still like some clarification.
“It’s real estate, it’s PRIME real estate which is sitting there right under everybody’s nose that no one’s really thought about yet, and it goes TV and movie, it’s awesome. I know they thought of it, but no one has actually blown life into it yet.”
Alright… Clear as mud.
One project that we know of for certain in Mr. Hardy’s future is Mad Max: Fury Road. It hits theaters on May 15.
