Tom Hardy’s image as America’s last bad-ass was renovated in a wildly feral Max Rockatansky. The role was praised just like everything else about the movie. With realistic action in almost every Tom Hardy action movie, he is literally getting his name sealed as best realistic action hero.
His second movie of the year – Legend, the biopic set in 1960’s Britain about the life of notorious gangster and identical twins – The Kray brothers. He played both (obviously). He didn’t just get the acclaim, indeed some of the viewers were left questioning who the other actor was.

Tom had some personal nominations for his performances in a few awards too.
The Third Movie of the year was Last year’s Oscar winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant alongside the famous Leonardo DiCaprio. Yet again he played a complete bad-ass who was sometimes downright horrifying. Playing the role of primary antagonist John Fitzgerald, this revenge drama set in 1800’s America beat Mad Max: Fury Road in terms of number of Oscar nominations including one for Tom Hardy himself in Best supporting actor category. Although he has stiff competition against Christian Bale and Sylvester Stallone for The Big Short and Creed respectively.

And for the future, he has Mad Max series’ future movie and is also set to be in leading in Christopher Nolan’s next “Dunkirk” – A World War II drama. With a lead role in well known Mad Max series as well as a Christopher Nolan movie in hand Tom Hardy might at last be a star, deservingly.

This will grab the attention from the huge gamer community which is huge and getting bigger. Being 37, Tom has almost 15 years of active future.
