Tom Hardy's got his eye on a superhero who's already been the focus of one cult flick: Frank Castle, better known to all as the Marvel antihero The Punisher. 

The role of The Punisher certainly fits into Hardy's long pattern of playing dark, violent antiheroes. 

Speaking to Collider, Hardy sounded enthusiastic about getting the chance to play Castle saying: "I would love it."

"I want the Punisher... I want the Punisher, or Splinter Cell, I want something... I don't know what I want."

Although Hardy was just speculating, the Internet quickly leaped into action buzzing about how they want him to play Frank Castle, and even making some pretty cool fan-art of Hardy as The Punisher.

But that's not all, things then got really interesting. When Steven DeKnight, showrunner and executive producer of Netflix's hit Daredevil Season 1, tweeted that he'd like nothing better than to give Hardy what he wanted.

It sounds like a Netflix Marvel spinoff featuring Hardy would be just the kind of new project DeKnight will be keen to do, since he won't be helming Daredevil's recently announced second season due to a prior commitment.. 

Marvel are yet to announce official plans for a Punisher movie or TV series.

What do you think? Do you want to see Punisher get his own movie or TV series? Do you want to see Hardy as The Punisher?
