Rumor: Tom Hardy Left Suicide Squad Due to Script Issues

January 17th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



Ok, this is just a RUMOR, not confirmed at all, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t share it…

So yesterday we reported that Tom Hardy left Suicide Squad due to scheduling conflicts with his other upcoming movie Revenant, which had gone over schedule shooting wise.

Now though, Latino Review is reporting that the possible (see: rumor) real reason is due to concerns about the script.

“According to sources, He simply didn’t like the script he was finally given. Like we figured, the scheduling conflict is a cover story, so he left the project under amicable terms.”

They further report that a possible script issue for Hardy himself was that the script was modified to give Deadshot and Joker more screentime.

Take this is as you will, cause of this seems sketchy. And it’s weird that the studio would try a “cover story” in an age where the internet has arms everywhere.

Personally? I don’t believe this latest news. Nor does it concern me for Suicide Squad. The script is not done, and shooting hasn’t started yet. We got a long way to go before I get worried
