First look at Tom Hardy as the new Mad Max

We've seen the creepy creatures George Miller has been creating for his Mad Max sequel Mad Max: Fury Road, but we've yet to see the main character. Will Tom Hardy be able to fill the sandy boots of former Mad Max Mel Gibson? The very first image as Hardy in his Mad Max costume has surfaced, so judge for yourself!

This image popped up on Twitter, showing off a decidedly less 80s leather-clad warrior. This looks as though Tom Hardy went to the desert in his Band Of Brothers gear. But the scarf is a nice touch, and the haircut is all Brooklyn. Should be interesting to see what else comes of this recast character.

Here's the insane synopsis:

"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."

Fury Road hits theaters in 2013.
