We have already seen Tom Hardy in a DC comic film when he played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. Hardy was then slated to return to DC as part of the Suicide Squad (Captain Boomerang), but dropped out and replaced by Joel Kinnaman. Hardy recently talked with Collider and advised that he’s still working with DC in an interview.
On working with DC Entertainment: “I actually got something cooking with Warner Bros. which is also a comic book, it’s a DC thing. 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 fuckfest, 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 fucking awesome. Let me tell you what it is, try and guess.”
On the project not being a movie: “It’s not even a movie. It’s already… 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 can’t believe that nobody has even –I know they thought of it but no one has actually blown life into it yet.”
