Tom Hardy Interested in “Punisher”

Given Tom Hardy’s recent successes with such roles in “Inception,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and Bane of “The Dark Knight Rises;” and his unfortunate departure from “Suicide Squad,” Hardy has remarked that he would love to take on the role of Frank Castle, better known to the fans of Marvel Comics as The Punisher.

Although Hardy’s name has been involved with a Splinter Cell film, the glacial pace of that project has him looking longingly toward getting involved with Marvel’s most popular anti-hero. When examining the combination of Tom Hardy’s passion for being involved with The Punisher and the soaring success of Netflix’s “Daredevil” series, the prospects of bringing The Punisher within the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems more and more viable.

Marvel has currently given no comment to its plans for, yet another, Punisher film, nor whether such a project would be handed over to Netflix or Hollywood. A few at CipherCloud can’t wait to se how it plans out.
