Bronson, Bane, Forrest Bondurant, Eames...Elton John? Is it time for Tom Hardy to sing and sashay across a stage wearing wild and garish costumes? If movie producers get their wish, it might be a possibility.

We're two years from the first announcements about "Cicero," a gangster flick at Warner Bros. that would see Tom Hardy take on the role of Al Capone. Cool, right? There was early talk of the project expanding into a trilogy, but that has died down along with most news about the project. Last we heard, the movie was aiming to start shooting this year with David Yates directing. Clearly, that's not gonna happen, but the endeavor is far from dead.

If there's any doubt, Tom Hardy is ready to break out in a big way. While he's not quite a household name (seriously, just go ask your Mom if she knows who Tom Hardy is), his moment of omnipresence is fast arriving. Of course, "Inception" and "The Dark Knight Rises" certainly boosted his profile in a major way, but "Warrior" proved his name was not yet a ticket buying incentive for many. But that's likely to soon change -- "Mad Max: Fury Road" is in the can and awaiting a release date, and in the first half of 2013 he's embarking on two movies with Noomi Rapace, "Animal Rescue" (which recently also added Matthias Schoenaerts) and "Child 44" and starts shooting the real time thriller "Locke" next month. Now, another movie has been added to his roster.

It feels like it's been quite a long time since we saw Tom Hardy on screen. But in fact, he's been working consistently, with five films in the last eighteen months, and the actor's such a chameleon that it's hard to draw a line between Ricky Tarr in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and Bane in "The Dark Knight Rises," especially as Hardy spent most of 2012 in Africa shooting the Mad Max movie "Fury Road."

With news of a big screen "Entourage" movie and that "Annie" remake, it might be easy to get cynical and disheartened about Hollywood. But as a recent movie has taught us, there's always a shot at a silver lining, and today it comes in the form of Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. The pair have already signed up to star in the Dennis Lehane adaptation "Animal Rescue," and at the time they were also considering the Cold War era flick "Child 44." Well it looks like the allure of working together and the material were too good to resist, because what the hell, they're going to do that movie too.

So, this morning a blurry image went around the interwebs of Tom Hardy looking particularly dusty and scruffy, with some claiming it to be the first look (as rough as it is) of the actor in "Mad Max: Fury Road." Well....it is.

Even though they may not have worked together yet on the big screen, Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace seem to already be good pals. The pair were on the cover of Blag magazine (see above), did some promo for it as well this year and seemed to have a blast (just do some Google searches). And now, we may see two of our favorite folks working together, in a very promising project.

Let the speculatin' begin (again). During the entire press run for Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," the drum beat played by everyone around the picture, from the director through each member of the cast, was that it was the end. There would be no fourth movie. Christian Bale said he wouldn't suit up again (unless Nolan wanted him to) and even with Joseph Gordon-Levitt revealed to be Robin/the new Batman, the actor insisted that there was no need for any spinoffs. Never say never, we suppose...there may be something transpiring....

And now, we're going to take one step further back to see how Tom Hardy transformed himself in the first place.

Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" subverted the usual superhero movie expectations, providing an experience rooted in character that still played into the grand myth of Batman. One of the many ways in which Nolan and co. turned things on their head was featuring the grand battle between Batman the villain Bane in the first third of the movie. And then having him lose. While they square off again later in the movie, this is in many ways the piece de resistance and it's not a surprise that getting it right took some work.
