Tom Hardy Talks on Being Bummed Out for Losing Out on Suicide Squad


Tom Hardy who was originally cast to play Rick Flag, before Joel Kinnaman landed the role in Suicide Squad, confirmed during an interview with Variety on his latest film The Revenant, on how he was bummed out for having to drop out of Suicide Squad.

As a result of the lack of snow, production had to stop in Calgary and resume months later in Argentina. Because of the delays, you had to drop out of “Suicide Squad.”

It punched right into that, yeah. That got derailed for me. Was I bummed? Of course I was. I hate fucking losing work. I kept bemoaning that they were losing me significant money on a daily basis. Actually, it was good for my character.

    Hopefully they cast him as someone else, dude is a hell of an actor.

    Honestly i think he would be perfect to headline a New Gods movie as Orion. Hopefully they bring him back in some capacity

    He’s gotta be in a future DCEU movie, he’s one of WB’s hottest actors and they wouldn’t just let him go over to Marvel, I guarantee you they are working out some deal and are keeping it under wraps.
