Could Tom Hardy be Apocalypse in “X-Men: Apocalypse?

Tom Hardy could be Apocalypse if negotiations and scheduling work out favorably. According to The Wrap, Tom Hardy is being “courted” for the “title role” in “X-Men: Apocalypse.”

Tom Hardy was once rumored to be in contention for “Doctor Strange,” though he has recently been courted for WB’s “Suicide Squad” and the title role in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” so don’t expect to see him join the MCU anytime soon.

A lot of sites are reporting this news and Tom Hardy being courted, but at this stage I would consider this nothing more than wishful speculation. Any actor can be swayed by the right deal but Tom Hardy has become a little more resilient since the miserable experience he had on “This Means War.”

He claims that he wants to focus on more “serious films” but we don’t know what his definition of serious may be. He practically took himself out of the running for “Doctor Strange” and even though he did take on the role of Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises,” Christopher Nolan had a very serious tone.

I think that Tom Hardy is an excellent actor and has the towering ferocity to play an overpowering villain but this may not be the role for him. I know he could play Apocalypse but I’m not sure how I feel about it so soon after Bane.

How do you think Tom Hardy would do as Apocalypse?

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
