Tom Hardy would love to play The Punisher
If Marvel has been looking for a good reason to bring “The Punisher” back to life THIS IS IT!!!
In an interview with Collider, Tom Hardy revealed he is interested in the character.
Collider: I heard Warner Bros. has a few more superhero movies, maybe one or two that they’re developing [Laughs].
HARDY: I want The Punisher… I want The Punisher, or Splinter Cell, I want something…I don’t know what I want.
You as Punisher could be very interesting.
HARDY: I’m not big enough to be The Punisher, I’m 5’9” [Laughs].
But I actually think that adds to the character.
HARDY: Frank Castle, I would love it. Is that him, isn’t it?
Yeah. It’s Frank Castle.
While it certainly sounds like he’d like Frank Castle OR Splinter Cell it’s interesting that he mentions it at all.
He is already confirmed for Splinter Cell, and they are currently working on a script and planning a time to film.
I think, with the success of the dark and gritty Daredevil on Netflix, this is a PERFECT chance to bring “The Punisher” back to life.
Tom Hardy is not above working on a TV show, he filmed a few episodes of the hit BBC show Peaky Blinders, and Netflix is an amazing medium for this kind of a character.
There’s absolutely no reason why they wouldn’t be able to lock Hardy down for a few months to film 10-13 episodes for a character he LOVES!
MAKE IT HAPPEN MARVEL!
