What Does Tom Hardy Think Of Filming 'TDKR' And Other Superhero Films?

Post  Apologist Puncher on Mon Jul 25, 2011 10:12 pm

Not much, apparently:

WeMakeALotOfShitUp.com

“[Warrior] is like the top end of creating something out of nothing,” Hardy told HitFix in an interview this weekend, saying that the film went through “a million” drafts, took years to edit.

“You deal with something Dark Knight – or ‘Mad Max,’ or ‘Superman’ or ‘Spider-man,’ whatever – it’s like going to work in an airport and going, ‘Hi I’m over here!’ and then everybody goes ‘Oh here’s that, that’s the villain of the piece.’ Then it’s a thousand people going to Duty-Free. Like, [shouting] ‘I AM THE VILLAIN!’ and make a lot of noise. There’s a formula here, you can’t muck around with it. There’s a lot of rules, you’re restrained in many ways as an artist. But then you’re also grateful because of the huge exposure and the paycheck."

"Or the not-paycheck ‘cause they’re making you a stahhh,” he affects. “Whatever it is, you’re paying an entrance to getting higher exposure. These movies are huge vehicles to make a lot of money… and make a large audience happy. So now you’re at the very top level of trying to bring character work in a boutique way to something that is, y’know, Starbucks."

I wonder if the good Father would read this and understand some of our concerns with this guy playing a character he was never qualified for in the first place?

Ya i can see that ap, though there is plently of actors who just do films for the paycheck and dont really care much for what it is they are doing or fans of it. For example if i remember right didnt the original obi wan actor just do the orginal star wars films for the money/paycheck and didnt care at all about the fanbase that came with the films.

The difference being, Sir Alec Gunness waited until AFTER the films were successful before he made that claim.

We don't know how Hardy is going to do in the role, and he is ALREADY implying that he is not taking things seriously.

Geeze, what an asshole. One wonders if someone from WB won't slap him down for shooting his mouth off like that. They have a brand and a franchise to protect. Last thing you want is some loose cannon douchebag like him smack-talking the movie to the press.

I'm starting to realize just WHO was the problem in that Labeaouf/Hardy fight on the set of their movie.

Shorty is starting to believe his own press, apparently.

Had no idea what you meant here but a quickie Google search brings it all into focus...

Hardy wrote:I got knocked out by Shia LaBeouf, actually. In Wettest County, apparently.

No, he did. He knocked me out sparko. Out cold. He's a bad, bad boy. He is. He's quite intimidating as well. He's a scary dude.

He just attacked me. He was drinking moonshine. I was wearing a cardigan, and er, went down.

Apparently Shia LaBeouf kicked his ass. I'll come out and say it, LaBeouf never struck me as a tough guy... but then we're talking about "the hulking, 200 lb. Bane" here (that should be trademarked by whoever coined the brilliant term, incidentally) so maybe this has to be judged on a sliding scale. Still, Hardy seems like such a prick that who could resist rolling with the guy if the opportunity came up? Can't say as I blame LaBeouf for taking the shot...

Which says a lot about Tom Hardy....

"It's fun to speculate, isn't it? The only evidence we really have is that Aaron Eckhart has met several times with director Christopher Nolan, but he never said those meetings were for The Dark Knight Rises. Now comes this interview segment from CBS in which he's asked directly if we'll ever see Harvey Dent again, be it "in a flash back or someone's imagination." Eckhart responds with a smile and says, "I could not possibly say."

The plot thickens, eh? So then we won't be seeing HARVEY DENT again?! A play on semantics or what?! Maybe a hint at a full-fledged TWO-FACE?! Actually, with the 'hulking' 5'9", 200 lb. BANE, I think Two-Face would be more than welcome just to salvage the VILLAINS! Twisted Evil

I just read that. What a jerk-off he's turned out to be! Ya know, it's sounds about like I said previously about Josh Hartnett, who basically ridiculed the idea of playing Superman back in the day. Or you have someone like Ashton Kutcher referring to 'the Superman curse'. I'm sure there's others too if I think long enough. Now Tom Hardy joins their ranks. He probably finds the material juvenile & probably looks at the fan base with the same detest.

Ya know something else? I know we ridicule Blandon 'BJ' Routhman left & right & justifiably so because of Singerman, but even he has enough class to not diss the fan base! Even when questioned about Singerman, he's polite to the interviewers, etc. Now Henry Cavill is a better fit but you don't hear ARROGANCE out of him either! He respects the characters and the fan base! And certainly one of the best examples we could give for showing RESPECT is the late Christopher Reeve! And I don't believe Tom Welling is as 'anti-Superman' as duh apologists make him out to be. Now, I recall reading somewhere that George Reeves wasn't particularly 'thrilled' with playing the character but even he had enough class to know when to keep his mouth shut & try to be civil towards the fan base, especially the kids.

Ya know what else? The 1989 Burton Batman film now gets a bad rap but I was there when it was making box office gold; the theater was packed! But I bring this up for a reason. Jack Nicholson, certainly one of the great actors of our time, actually wanted to play the Joker & Bob Kane wanted him to! And then we have Michael Keaton, who at the time was not considered to be a favorite to play Batman but in the end, he turned out to be the BEST BATMAN EVAAAHHH! And I also get the impression that Keaton is more grateful for the role than Christian Bale is.

Here's the rub. If the likes of Reeve, Reeves, Welling, Nicholson, Keaton, & I'm sure there are others, if these guys can respect the comics & the fan base, what is it with these douchebags like Hardy & Hartnett, etc?! I mean, back in the day, William Shatner acted like he dissed the STAR TREK fan base on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. However, I've since 're-watched' that on Youtube & I've come to believe that Shatner was actually 'in on the joke' & not really dissing like people thought he was. But the likes of Hardy ain't 'kidding' so what's up with these guys?! Mad

Legit criticisms but I'd argue that they're within their rights as they didn't accept the role. They're still dickheads, don't get me wrong, but you can at least halfway respect them for declining the work.

But it's a real pussy thing to do to make fun of the very "ridiculous" role you have freely accepted. You can piss on it or you can accept it but you cannot do both... unless you're out to prove you're a douchebag.

I do savor the Nolanites' reaction to this though...

...

It's usually not my business to give the kudos for anything but, yeah, that's a fair point.

And I also get the impression that Keaton is more grateful for the role than Christian Bale is.
Oh yeah, very definitely. I've seen and read a lot of interviews with him over the years where Batman comes up and each time (A) he speaks in positive terms and (B) you sense the admiration and gratitude for the role. He enjoyed it, has no regrets and loves the films and the experiences. Or at least that's the impression he gives. Either way you look at it... CLASS.

The irony is that Keaton already had a career before B89 came along. Sure, B89 changed his fortunes but he had steady work. Meanwhile, Christian fucking Bale was getting his house note paid for by his agent for a long time there, definitely into the 2000's. Of all people, Bale should show some manners over the role that completely changed his career forever and made him an A-lister. Prior to that, good as American Psycho and the Machinist were, they weren't superstar, high-paying roles. Batman made both of them STARS but it's always been telling how much cooler Keaton always was about it.

That all said, Clooney is within his rights to diss, diss and diss some more.

Here's the rub. If the likes of Reeve, Reeves, Welling, Nicholson, Keaton, & I'm sure there are others, if these guys can respect the comics & the fan base, what is it with these douchebags like Hardy & Hartnett, etc?!
It comes down to tact and professionalism. 10:1, Tom Welling will get sick of SV/Superman questions by 2021 but even then he'll STILL know what side his bread got buttered on for a lot of years there. I can't envision him holding the fans or the property in contempt. Welling is a professional.

Hardy? He's an immature ass-clown.

And let's not forget the female version of this phenomenon, Megan Fox, who pissed off both Michael Bay and Stephen Spielberg when she was in a mega-successful franchise. Now where is she at? Looks like she & Hardy ought to date or something. They have a lot in common! Wink

Smart-ass'd "back-tracking" on his previous comments:

WeMakeALotOfShitUp.com

"I'm really sorry if anyone misunderstood what I said about comparing working for a huge franchise to being like working for Starbucks. I didn't mean it like that. I mean, it could have been British Airways. It could have been Virgin, it could have been any huge company."

"I'm human and I do read things and I get hurt. My friends say "Don't read anything , just ignore it". But I do. And I read Comics. And I cry."


This douche's head is a little too big in comparison to his "resume"....
