While Tom Hardy was just yesterday praising the Suicide Squad script (here) and saying he was sad he had to drop out, today he’s saying he still wants to be part of a comicbook movie.

Em, tom, you know you played Bane in Dark Knight Rises, right?

Anyway, while he said earlier that he wants to stay at Warners, it seems he’s not totally against dipping his toes in Marvel’s studio too. Although, we wonder if he even knows Punisher is a Marvel property?

“I want The Punisher… I want The Punisher, or Splinter Cell, I want something…I don’t know what I want.” he remarks.

However, he fears his height would be an issue: “I’m not big enough to be The Punisher, I’m 5’9”. Frank Castle, I would love it. Is that him, isn’t it?

There’s probably nothing to this as Hardy is just keen to get into the comic/action scene; that said, we could see him as Castle.

Are we alone? Let us know your thoughts…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
