Comic-Con Wrap Up – Tom Hardy is Mad Max in ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ & Holy Shit This Movie Looks Awesome
Tom Hardy is a monster, in the greatest sense of that word. I loved him in Bronson. I loved him in Inception. I loved him in The Dark Knight Rises. He was put on this earth to break women’s hearts and be a badass, both of which are very possible in the Mad Max reboot. Tom Hardy will play a prequel version of Mad Max, who was originally played the Mel Gibson in the 1980s trilogy. Creator George Miller had this to say about Gibson, but he might as well be talking about the character as well:
“They have that eternal tension,” Miller said, referring to Gibson’s charisma. ” On one hand they are entirely lovable and accessible. And on the other there is that element of danger … It applies to every charismatic person.” – THR
Add in Hardy’s acting chops with this self proclaimed “Western on wheels”, and you have one hell of a fun ride. May 2015 can’t come soon enough.
