Tom Hardy reveals the real reason why he missed out on DC’s “Suicide Squad.” In an interview with Collider , he shared that his upcoming movie “The Revenant” forced him to drop out of the villain-led film.
“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,” Hardy explained.
The actor isn’t at all bitter with the studio’s decision to give his role to “Run All Night” star Joel Kinnaman.
“It was just not gonna happen so I got ass-slammed technically out of ‘Suicide Squad,’ gutted, so I had to hand it over to Joel Kinnaman, who will do an amazing job.” But fans need not to worry, as the “Bronson” actor confirms that he will star in a future DC film: “I actually got something cooking with Warner Bros.
which is also a comic book, it’s a DC thing,” He revealed.
“It’s really good actually.” Hardy excitedly explained the new role “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,” he said, adding “it’s a psychological f***fest, it’s absolutely awesome.” The actor, who played Bane in DC’s “The Dark Knight Rises” also expressed his interest in playing Marvel’s “The Punisher.” “I want The Punisher,” the actor told Collider .
“I want The Punisher, or Splinter Cell.” Although he thinks he isn’t tall enough to fill Frank Castle’s role.
“I’m not big enough to be The Punisher, I’m 5’9”, he jokingly added.
Hardy’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” is currently in theaters.
