The man as already played a good version of Bane in the Dark Knight Rises and just this week we learned that he is being targeted for a role in DC’s new Suicide Squad movie. Many people are talking about him playing one of the main members, Harkness, but with nothing to go on their is no telling who he will play. Now, not even 48 hours later, we have rumors and rumblings that Fox is eyeing him for the main role in the newest X-Men movie. Everyone is assuming that it is Apocalypse, but I have a different thought.
Personally, just thinking of him playing the one and only Apocalypse does not seem right. Now, let’s get a few things out of the way quickly. It is not that I do not think he could play the role well. He is a good actor and doing bad guys seems to be his specialty. He is big, menacing, and his voice works well for that type of role. It’s not that I don’t think he would make a great X-Men villain… I just feel that Apocalypse is the wrong fit. I think we need a big tough middle eastern actor to play the role. I want that accent to be thick and invoke fear. Someone like Faran Tahir would make an awesome choice. He did a good job with the limited role he was given in Ironman and could do even more if given the chance with a great villain like Apocalypse.
Now, as for Tom Hardy, if you wanted to give him a key role in the film, I think I know just the spot to put him. Make him the one and only, Mr. Sinister! He has the look and the presence on film to fill those shoes. Just picture him with the make up and think of him on screen… We have to have Sinister in the movie. There is no way around it and if they leave him out I am done with the X-Men series all together.
I can not be the only one who agrees… Let us know in the comments below!
