Today, on the heels of last week's major superhero movie announcements from Warner Brothers (re: the DC Universe) and Marvel (re: RDJ and Captain America 3) we've got some pretty interesting news from Fox. Apparently Bryan Singer, director of the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, wants Tom Hardy to play Apocalypse.
If Singer gets his man, this would be Hardy's second major comic book villain. In case you somehow didn't know, Hardy also played Bane for Christopher Nolan in The Dark Knight Rises.
Here's the thing, though. Apocalypse isn't his only option. Hardy's name has recently been bandied about in connection with the DC supervillains flick Suicide Squad, too, and a few months ago he was supposedly being pursued for Marvel's Doctor Strange.
Of course, it's obvious why everybody wants Hardy for their comic book movies. He was a total badass in DKR and is in general a fine actor. However, we don't know if the guy even wants to play another supervillain, despite the fact that he would make a pretty sick Apocalypse.
I guess we'll have to wait and see.
