Tom Hardy very nearly ended up taking on a key role in the DC Extended Universe as Rick Flag in Suicide Squad, but scheduling issues meant he was forced to pass on starring in the David Ayer helmed movie.

Of course, the actor is no stranger to comic book movies, after taking on the role of Bane in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, and when the Legend star was asked if he has any interest in returning to this world, he revealed his desire to actually reprise the role of the villain who broke the Bat.


Specifically, Hardy would like to do so in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Here’s what he had to say when asked if he would return as Bane.

“Of course! I’m Bane! Somebody asked me, ‘Who would I want to win out in a fight between Superman and Batman?’ And I would like to hold the pair of them under the water until the bubbles stop.”

Interestingly, the actor seems in the dark about those recent reports that his Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller will direct the Man of Steel sequel, as he asks the interviewer whether there’s any truth to them (for now, they remain just a rumour).

While it would be great to see Hardy star in another comic book movie, he does have a pretty busy schedule and is currently developing a big screen adaptation of Vertigo’s 100 Bullets, so time will tell if he returns to the world of superheroes.
