Tom Hardy drops some baffling info regarding a secret DC project

05.08.2015

Tom Hardy was all lined up to play Rick Flagg in David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD and pulled out months before production. The reasoning for this is said to be a scheduling conflict for Alejandro González Iñárritu's THE REVENANT, but it looks like Hardy isn't done with DC just yet. While Hardy has recently expressed some interesting in playing with Marvel's Punisher, there's something over at DC that has REALLY got his attention. The issue? He doesn't even know what it is.

Tom Hardy on a project he's developing with DC and Warner Bros.:

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*ckfest, it's absolutely awesome. It's 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*cking awesome. It’s not even a movie! 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.

Anyone care to fathom a guess? DC has a hell of movie line-up ahead of them, but I'm not sure if Hardy is referring to a TV/Film crossover something else entirely. Perhaps whatever he's planning with Warner Bros. is in the early stages and it hasn't taken shape just yet. In any event, Tom Hardy doesn't look like he's shying away from the high-profile gigs anytime soon, and if the buzz on MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is any indication, we're going to get a hell of a summer fix soon enough!

You can check out Hardy next in MAD MAX: FURY ROAD which hits theaters on May 15th.

We can dream.

After Bane. I can totally see him as the Main Man, Fraggin motherfuckers for looking at his Dolphins the wrong way.

I want a Lobo movie, like yesterday.

Sooo... I'm the only one who's thinking The Sandman? That was the first thing I thought of when I was reading his spiel... I mean... I could be way off but... It's the only one I can think of that is as awesome as he is describing... I could see it being a psychological, technicolor fuckfest... and there have been talks of both movies and tv show for that in the past. It is prime real estate too IMO. Batman and characters have shown up in Sandman comics too so... I don't know.

I know it's

I know it's been thought of in the past but maybe they've found a way to do it and do it good? Seeing as I don't see anyone else posting this suggestion I'm guessing I'm out of the loop and just want some Sandman on the big screen too bad (or TV)

Could this be Justice League Dark he's talking about? Him as Constantine or Deadman?

it doesn't sound like it, sounds more like crime & capes than magic & capes But that would be awesome. Specially with Guillermo DelToro orchestrating it.

Doom Patrol ? or RIP Hunter?

I don't see it being Red Hood.. Tom Hardy would be to old to play Jason.. Don't see Lobo playing into anything that is already existing under our noses. Whatever it is i just can't wait to have Tom involved !!
To have every quality that he has listed, i can only think of Doom Patrol.. has the Oceans vibe, the Psych F*#ck quality, and is integrated in the whole DC universe...

If not that then maybe RIP Hunter?

Maybe it has something to do with that awesome unused Green Arrow script from a few years back, Supermax.

Still holding on to hope we see Ewan McGregor as Oliver Queen one day.

God knows what he's talking about.

It could even be a version of Transmetropolitan itself. It's definitely Vertigo and not mainstream. Could be The Boys (wouldn't want to see that without Simon Pegg, though). I would love to see something like The Invisibles, though.

That description above could be for anything. He compared it to like 4 movies that are nothing alike: Ocean's Eleven, Batman, Pulp Fiction, and Heat. What the fuck property falls into those categories?

Just read up on 100 Bullets as I saw some people posting about that. That sounds like it could be it. Lobo might be a bit out there for the DC universe they're creating. The mention of Batman has me thinking he might be talking about Red Hood (considering current rumors have that at the

The mention of Batman has me thinking he might be talking about Red Hood (considering current rumors have that at the top of WB's development list). But the rest of the description doesn't really support that, so who knows?

Vertigo?

Something from vertigo's line maybe? I can't think of anything in the DC lineup that holds the weight he's describing that hasn't already been rumored. Who knows... Maybe swamp thing or 100 bullets?

My best bet would be Lobo. But whatever role he ends up playing (Marvel or DC), he'll knock it out of the park.

But with this news, Marvel would be very smart to sign Hardy up for The Punisher considering he's already stated that he is interested and would be another huge casting win for Marvel.

I don't know... it'd be tough to just release a Lobo movie without having him appear in Superman first. And Lobo's a little out there... coming in on a flying motorcycle from space and all, I just don't see it fitting with the description he gave above

despite him making his desire known to play punisher it is VERY VERY VERY unlikely that Tom would get signed by Marvel as he is under contract and his home studio is Warner Bros.
