When Tom Hardy shared his first picture in character as Al Capone on Instagram, it didn't reveal much. Hardy didn’t look all that different, and the image was suuuuper filtered.

Since then though, the actor has taken to Instagram to share more images of him as the notorious gangster, and we can safely confirm that they are intense.

The actor is taking on the role for new movie Fonzo, which reportedly looks at Al Capone's final days in Alcatraz Prison, honing in on the figure’s dementia and failing health.

The movie is being written and directed by Josh Trank, best-known for Chronicle and the Fantastic Four reboot, and co-stars Matt Dillon, Linda Cardellini and Kyle MacLachlan.

We have total faith in Hardy that he will pull this off. Let us know if you're looking forward to Fonzo in the comments.
