    In an exclusive footage shared by the film, Austin Butler is seen talking about how he sees Tom Hardy as a hero and how he was unsure on how they would get along while making the film. “You never know when you meet your heroes if you’re going to get along,” Butler said during the interview, before adding, “And Tom makes me laugh harder than almost anyone in this world.”

    Butler wasn’t the only one nervous about Hardy’s presence in the film. Producer Sarah Greene also spoke about how they were skeptical about Hardy’s accent in the film but the actor left the makers completely in awe with his performance.

    “We didn’t know what he was going to sound like,” Sarah Green said as she also kjoined in the conversation. “When he first opened his mouth, it was like, we all went, ‘What?! That’s so wild!’ There was a little Marlon Brando in there; I think there was a little Jimmy Cagney in there. It worked so well for us,” she added.
