In true Tom Hardy fashion, he’s fully immersing himself in his new role for “Chronicle” and “Fantastic Four” director Josh Trank’s Al Capone film “Fonzo.”

The “Dark Knight” and “Dunkirk” actor has been sharing some photos from the set of the film. And he’s almost unrecognizable as the prohibition-era crime boss. Like most Hardy flicks, this one also looks like it’s going to be intense.

“Fonzo” was announced back in October 2016 with Hardy set to star. Trank wrote the script and is directing the film, which is suppose to explore the mobster’s life at 47 years old, after being released from prison. Capone (Hardy) will be forced to consider his violent and reprehensible actions as his mind is ravaged by dementia.

The movie has been stuck in the development stage for a while, according to reports. Filming was initially scheduled to start in the summer of 2017, but Hardy instead went to shoot “Venom” for Sony, which is set for an Oct. 5 release.

Now that filming on “Fonzo” has started, Hardy is giving us a glimpse of what to expect. See more photos:

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Josh Trank

Josh Trank is a writer and director that at this point is known mostly for the movies The Fantastic Four (the reboot) and Chronicle.

Dceu Fan Art Imagines Dane DeHaan As Jason Todd

Of all the hanging plot threads that fans want the Dceu to explore, one of the most interesting is the death of Jason Todd, as hinted at in both Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.

The inclusion of a Robin outfit defiled with Joker graffiti on display in the Batcave told us that, as per the comics, Batman’s nemesis had murdered the second Boy Wonder in the continuity of the movie universe. So, let’s imagine for a second that this tragic event was depicted in some future Dceu film. If that indeed happens, who should play the part?

Well, one Redditer, going by the suitably Joker-savvy username @JNapierrr, has shared a piece of fan art that imagines Dane DeHaan in the role of Jason Todd, and you can check it out down below:

The actor burst onto the scene in Josh Trank’s low-budget superhero film Chronicle and even re-teamed with the director to become the Human Torch in Fantastic Four. While that latter film received the opposite reaction of the hit indie, that didn’t deter Jordan from continuing to pursue a merger of his two loves.
