Tom Hardy is interested in playing The Punisher

Tom Hardy is busy promoting his upcoming movie, Mad Max: Fury Road. In an interview with Collider, he told them that he wants to play The Punisher for Marvel. It would be nice to see him in a Marvel film, since he previously played Bane in WB’s The Dark Knight Rises and was originally supposed to play Rick Flagg in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

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

It’s interesting that he talked about Splinter Cell, since he’s already attached to that film project.

He then adds that his height may be a problem for playing the Marvel anti-hero:

I’m not big enough to be The Punisher, I’m 5’9”.

He adds again that he would love to play the character.

Frank Castle, I would love it. Is that him, isn’t it?

With Marvel doing great with a gritty and dark series like Daredevil on Netflix, will we get to see a TV-MA Punisher soon? Let’s hope so.

Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters on May 15, 2015.
