Actor Tom Hardy, perhaps best known for being Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, has reportedly decided to ‘drop out’ of David Ayer’s DC Cinematic Universe film Suicide Squad starring Jared Leto, Will Smith & Margot Robbie.
Tom Hardy was to play Rick Flag in the aforementioned film, and now The Wrap reports that Warner Bros. is eyeing Jake Gyllenhaal to replace Hardy as Flag.
Reportedly, Hardy had to drop out due to one of his next films (The Revenant) ‘going over schedule’. Gyllenhaal is one of the best actors out there – and though I personally would’ve wanted him to play the Joker someday, this will do.
