“The Dark Knight Rises” actor Tom Hardy hinted at another DC film role after he dropped out of the villain-centric “Suicide Squad.” He teased his next possible endeavor in an interview with Collider .
“I actually got something cooking with Warner Bros.
which is also a comic book, it’s a DC thing,” Hardy revealed.
“It’s really good actually, 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.
Hardy hinted at something big, explaining ” as if you would take 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.” Hardy teased that the role wasn’t one of the studio’s announced upcoming titles.
“It’s not even a movie,” he said, adding “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.” The “Inception” star recently shed light on why he dropped out of DC’s “Suicide Squad,” explaining that his other project, “The Revenant,” extended filming by a few months, forcing him to leave the villain-led project.
“There’s a very practical element as to why I’ve missed out on that foray, which is because Alejandro [G.
Inarritu] has overshot by three months in Calgary, so we’ve got to go back out to Patagonia or Alaska to continue shooting ‘ The Revenant’ which has turned into a much bigger beast than we thought, but that also looks exceptional,” he told Collider .
The “Bronson” star recently said that he wanted to play Frank Castle in a reboot of “The Punisher,” but added that he wasn’t tall enough for the role.
Hardy will appear next in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a reboot from the original “Mad Max” director George Miller on May 15.
