Tom Hardy Talks SPLINTER CELL And Whether He's Been Offered Another Comic Book Movie

The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy offers a very brief update on Ubisoft and Doug Liman's upcoming big screen adaptation of the Splinter Cell video game series, while also revealing whether or not he would be interested in another comic book movie role and if he's actually been offered one.

It was recently revealed that the Splinter Cell screenplay is undergoing another draft with Sheldon Turner (The Longest Yard) working on the latest version of the Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) helmed big screen adaptation of the popular Tom Clancy video game series. When Collider caught up with star Tom Hardy during his promotional tour for Locke, he had this to say about whether or not it will be ready for an August shoot. "Can't say. You never know with these things. I'd like to be able to say, but shift in geography finances and those things..." As for this current take, all Hardy could say was: "Every draft has been different and grown and changed and whatnot. It's going to be cool!" When talk turned to if he would be interested in starring in another comic book movie role after playing Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, Hardy told Variety: ""Yeah, of course." He was then asked if any other offers have been made since, simply replying with "No," but we all know that actors know better than to reveal this type of thing. Personally, I would love to see him play Thanos! What do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!

He should play Wolverine.
Bl00dwerK - 4/26/2014, 6:51 AM
I'll see the shit out of this...
Comedian03 - 4/26/2014, 6:53 AM
Tom Hardy for Wolverine.

Tom Hardy for Wolverine?? I don't see it at all. Isn't everyone all Wolverined out anyways? If we didn't see Wolverine for 10yrs on big screen, it'd be ok with me. I'd love to see a Xmen movie without Wolverine, to be honest. I'm bored to death with Wolverine..
Fabius - 4/26/2014, 7:01 AM

Nope, For Doctor Stephen Strange Daniel Day Lewis should be perfect ! Just my feeling.
Namor - 4/26/2014, 7:01 AM
And Clive Owen for Dr.Strange by the way.
MexicanSexyman - 4/26/2014, 7:03 AM
@Fabius, yes that would be perfection but he won't ever be in a cbm.
JokerEl - 4/26/2014, 7:06 AM
Agreed. Too much wolverine. Need a break from him.
DaVinci31 - 4/26/2014, 7:07 AM
Hardy will be the only reason I watch this, the whole "team" behind this is kind of disappointing, especially considering it's a Splinter-Cell based movie.
SuperCat - 4/26/2014, 7:08 AM
Black Bolt.
SaxoWolf - 4/26/2014, 7:11 AM
there's a comic book character for him:

kevberg - 4/26/2014, 7:17 AM
OH god no-----No midget thanos please. He was horrible as Bane.
DaVinci31 - 4/26/2014, 7:18 AM
Can't wait to see Locke though, haven't had a chance to go out and see it

IminentEminence - 4/26/2014, 7:21 AM
I could see him bringing depth to Punisher. Not bad...
DaVinci31 - 4/26/2014, 7:22 AM

He was excellent as Nolan's interpretation of Bane.
DaVinci31 - 4/26/2014, 7:22 AM
Not bad @Saxo, not bad at all.
DukeAcureds - 4/26/2014, 7:23 AM
Thanos is an awesome idea, Josh.
A cameo in BvS could be good, too. Not as Bane, obviously, but maybe the Mutant Leader?
kevberg - 4/26/2014, 7:24 AM
GOSH...I need a break From Batman--hes in everything. I could use a Justice league Movie without Batman.

F#$king Batman. Hes In EVERYTHING DC does.

Superman..can they Do a movie without Superman. Why is there a another Superman movie?

Why Do DC and Warner Bros only do Superman and Batman movies.

I can play that game too.
kevberg - 4/26/2014, 7:25 AM
He was [email protected] as Bane.

Why do you think his stupid Bane voice is MOCKED repeatedly. You couldnt understand him most of the Time.

Rises is a Flawed , flawed movie.
l0rdleg0las - 4/26/2014, 7:27 AM

I don't think that he was bad as Bane. The movie was a piece of shit so his performance gets caught up in that. Aside from the occasional not understanding what he was saying he was one of the only good parts of that movie.
DrVenkman - 4/26/2014, 7:29 AM

Thought he was great as Bane
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/26/2014, 7:29 AM
He would be a boss Thanos!!!!! And a great Punisher too!
@kevberg are you sane??? Did you notice TDKR mostly positive reviews and billion dollar box office??? Yea..learn that shit
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/26/2014, 7:31 AM
Name was one of the best part of TDKR. Never noticed how Hardy could be a great Thanos. Thanks to whomever thought that up.
Tom Hardy- "I was born in swag. Molded by it"
TheGreenBastard - 4/26/2014, 7:32 AM
Damn, I never thought about that, but Hardy would own Wolverine, and much more so than Huge Jacked Man. He's also much closer to Wolverine's height.
TheGreenBastard - 4/26/2014, 7:33 AM
I don't think he was horrible as Bane at all, and I think he did great with what Nolan wanted to do. That said, I don't like Rises.
l0rdleg0las - 4/26/2014, 7:36 AM
Another idea for a character he could play. The Phantom. Kind of a mediocre character but if done right could be a really fun movie.
gambgel - 4/26/2014, 7:36 AM
Cable should be play by someone with the skills and badass attitude of Liam Nesson or Gerard Butler, if they want someone a bit younger
QuestiontheAnswer - 4/26/2014, 7:36 AM
TDKR was a great movie. Hardy was menacing in it even though his voice sounded daft. I couldn't see him playing another comic character though.
DaVinci31 - 4/26/2014, 7:41 AM

TDKR was pure dogsh*t.

But, that has nothing to do with Tom Hardy, he's just an actor, a very brilliant actor I must say.
cosmicman - 4/26/2014, 7:42 AM
Watch Warrior. There's Tom Hardy as Wolverine.
l0rdleg0las - 4/26/2014, 7:43 AM

Dude, box office has nothing to do with movie quality. TDKR was a pile of shit. Iron Man 3 is the worst of the Iron Man trilogy but made a billion. Michael Bay movies generally suck but rake in cash. Avatar is one of the shittiest most overrated movies ever but it is one of the highest grossing movies ever.
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/26/2014, 7:44 AM
Watch Bronson. Hardy is a god. He needs to be wolverine after Jackman. Or Thanos
DukeAcureds - 4/26/2014, 7:45 AM
I thought he did good as Bane. If that wasn't a mexican accent, then what is?
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/26/2014, 7:46 AM
@l0rdlegal0s yea but it means the public loves that film. Studios can sometimes give two shits about reviews and quality as long as the film makes money. TDKR was still epic in scope and scale and Hardy did his job. It was te worst of the aries but it was waaay better than IM3 an most final films on a trilogy
marvel72 - 4/26/2014, 7:46 AM
thanos will be motion capture & i definitely don't want hardy providing the voice,remember how crap bane's voice was it was a complete was like he was trying to compete with bale for who had the most ridiculous voice in a batman movie.
TheYoungMan - 4/26/2014, 7:47 AM
Rises is the best CBM of all time. Scientific fact.
l0rdleg0las - 4/26/2014, 7:48 AM

I don't understand the recent Liam Neison action hero kick everyone has been on. He isn't an action guy, it isn't believable. Great actor, but not someone I believe is a badass. I look at him in his recent movies and I see a guy who should be grading term papers not a guy killing bad guys.
