From “Bane” to “Apocalypse!” Tom Hardy is sought after to become “The X-Men’s” Next Big Villain!

“X-Men: Apocalypse” is on its way! This movie will mark Apocalypse’s cinematic debut; and just so you know when it comes to super villains  is the cream of the crop! Gifted with more powers than you can imagine. Born, En Sabah Nur, this immortal (and first) mutant makes villains as powerful as Magneto look like novice heroes. Thus, it is no surprise Fox wants an actor use to playing hulking homicidal bad guys–they want Tom Hardy. As you might remember Tom was DC comics villain, Bane, in the final installment of “The Dark Knight” franchise, “The Dark Knight Rises.” Big, brooding, and fearful the villain initially bested Batman and plunged Gotham into anarchy.

Apocalypse you can see from the picture Apocalypse is quite a site to behold. Tom’s size, combined with a little movie makeup magic X-Men director, may make him the scariest super villain to grace a movie screen. He still has fierce competition though with Marvel Studios’ “Thanos” as seen in this past summer’s  “The Guardians of The Galaxy.” Brian Singer has knack for picking amazing talent when it comes to bringing Marvel’s “merry mutants” to The Big Screen. Apocalypse’s appearance serves as a major turning point in the X-Men features, where predominantly Magneto has been the villain. Sources have confirmed this film will close out the X-Men First Class Franchise, rumored to be set in the early eighties when many of the X-Men (Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm) were teenagers.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
