Tom Hardy Wants To Play The Punisher!! Let The Fans Rejoice With Happy Tears!!


By Matt O'Bryant

What's up everyone,  

Well it's looking like Tom Hardy might get another shot at playing a comic book character! 

Hardy has already played one of the main bad guys (Bain) in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, and more recently had the role of Rick Flagg in the David Ayers' upcoming Suicide Squad film, but he eventually had to leave that project do to scheduling conflicts. 

Now it appears Hardy wants to get back in the comic book action again!

In an interview with Collider Tom Hardy had this to say:

“I want The Punisher… I want The Punisher, or Splinter Cell, I want something…I don’t know what I want. … I’m not big enough to be The Punisher, I’m 5’9” [Laughs]. … Frank Castle, I would love it.”

Now there is nothing official about this, nothing has been confirmed!  All I can say is I hope to god this happens and Tom Hardy gets his wish!  I mean how badass would it be to see Hardy as the punisher straight up whooping ass and killing gangsters in a Marvel Cinematic Universe version of The Punisher!


Now about that other "project", Hardy has for a very long time been attached to do the Splinter Cell video game adaptation, which is supposedly being directed by Doug Liman.  There has been no movement or information regarding that project for a very long time now.

So what is everyone else's thoughts on Tom Hardy playing The Punisher and being part of the Marvel Ciematic Universe

Let's us know below in the comments section.
