Though he dropped out of the “Suicide Squad” film, Tom Hardy may be a part of the DC Cinematic Universe after all. Doing press for “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Hardy spoke with Collider and teased an upcoming DC project:
“I actually got something cooking with Warner Bros. which is also a comic book, it’s a DC thing which is kind of… 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–kfest, 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.”
Asked about how this film would fit into Warners’ already announced slate of DC Comics movies, Hardy’s answer is even more confusing:
“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.”
What property is he talking about? Feel free to speculate in the comments below.
