Could this be the new ďMadĒ Max Rockatansky?

A reader has shared this autographed image of Tom Hardy in costume on what is believed to be the set of George Millerís Mad Max: Fury Road with AICN. Harry Knowles, himself, claims that the signature looks like Hardyís, though as he says the image doesnít look like any character the actor has played before. Is this our very first unofficial look at Hardyís interpretation of the legendary road warrior? Take a look:

I find it a little strange to think that Hardy would be handing out signed photographs of himself in character when the studio has yet to share anything from Millerís movie. Would he be able, in the world of instant-share social media, to just leak the first coveted look at his version of the iconic character? I think itís unlikely, yet like Knowles, I donít recognize this photo of Hardy playing a character from any of his past roles.

Filming on Fury Road wrapped recently in Australia, so weíll likely hear more about potential teasers and a maybe a full trailer as Miller cuts footage together and the studio contemplates a 2013 release date. What we donít know yet is whether Fury Road will serve as a prequel or sequel to the three Mad Max movies that once starred Mel Gibson.

The plot, from what we know, finds Max (Hardy) assisting a caravan of people piloting a War Rig across the Wasteland. Hardy will be joined by Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Zoe Kravitz in the film. So what do you think? Is this Hardy as Max, or something different? What do you hope it is?
