Earlier today, there was an autographed photo of Tom Hardy floating around the Internet, which many claimed to be our first look at the actor in costume on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road. Tom Hardy is playing Mad Max Rockatansky in this post-apocalyptic thriller directed by George Miller, director of the original Mad Max. The role was originated by Mel Gibson. Warner Bros. has now confirmed that the following photo is in fact Tom Hardy in character as Mad Max. It's certainly an odd way to get our first look at the character. What do you think? It looks pretty accurate to us, in terms of continuing this franchise rather than rebooting it. Maybe you disagree.
