Oh, what could have been!
Back in January, Tom Hardy officially dropped out of the DC superhero flick, Suicide Squad where he was set to play the leader of the squad, Rick Flagg, and was replaced with Joel Kinnaman. Hardy reportedly had to finish filming a prior commitment, The Revenant, also starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

The hunky Englishman recently spoke with Collider during press for Mad Max: Fury Road, and confirmed he had to leave due to scheduling changes with The Revenant, but also shared his opinionated thoughts on Suicide Squad and the overall script by saying:
"I wanted to work on that and I know the script is really f*cking alley and I also know what's gonna happen with The Joker and Harley Quinn in that; I won't give away too much…it's f*cking alley. And that whole territory is something that I would certainly—I mean, everybody loves The Joker. Everybody loves The Joker. Will Smith is a dope guy, but everybody loves The Joker and that's gonna, I think, be a very important film for fans."
Might be worth nothing that Collider reports that 'alley' means: "right up there with the best"
We can't say we aren't heartbroken we won't see Tom up on the screen with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, and Scott Eastwood, but we think it maybe worked out for the best in the end! We mean we do get a flick with Leo and Tom after all!

What do you think? Are you happy Hardy isn't returning to superhero movies so soon? Or are you upset he couldn't make it work?
The Revenant from 20th Century Fox is set to be released December 25, 2015 while Suicide Squad will hit theaters August 5, 2016 from Warner Brothers.
