Tom Hardy Was Initially “Daunted” With “Mad Max: Fury Road”

Though he broke Batman’s back in The Dark Knight Rises as Bane, Tom Hardy admitted he was initially “daunted” upon entering director George Miller’s iconic, post-apocalyptic universe in Mad Max: Fury Road.

During the Mad Max: Fury Road, Hardy was humble about taking over the role popularized by Mel Gibson in the series’ three previous films:

I don’t think I brought anything new – as such. But the fact that I’m just a new actor in the fourth installment of the legacy which was once was ultimately Mel’s role and still is, rightly so.  I’m just the new boy – and hopefully (I’m) accepted.
