Tom Felton: Comic book hero?

TOM AS INUYASHA?


Inuyasha

Rumors and whispered prayers have been brewing for years – fueled by fans with their character wish lists and fanfics – about Tom Felton portraying a comic book hero on the big screen.

Every year it seems, rumors swirl about a new comic book role for Tom – usually to the point where someone adds it as an entry on the film resume on his Wikipedia page. For example, last year everyone was talking about Tom starring as Light Yagami in a remake of “Death Note.” Before that, it was Quicksilver from “X Men.” And before that, it was Angel, also from “X Men.”

This year, we hear talk about a possible live-action movie based on the Japanese manga series, “Inuyasha,” with Tom portraying the the lead role of the white-haired mischievous half-demon character. Feltbeats.com has received numerous e-mails from excited fans asking about the truth of this rumor, and so we caught up with Tom Felton earlier this week to clarify things.


Tom or Inuyasha: Which is which?

TOM RESPONDS TO RUMORS

“Unfortunately,” Tom said. “As far as know it is indeed just a rumor. My agent is yet to hear from anyone about this so I’m not really sure just yet! I’d definitely be interested in reading the script if it is being made. Would love to continue playing the bad guy – you can have a lot more fun!”

Although Tom didn’t know very much at first about the Inuyasha character, after hearing more about it from Feltbeats.com, he thought such a role would be very interesting. “Malfoy is practically half-demon at certain points in Harry Potter, so I’m sure I can draw on my experiences of playing him and use them towards this character if it was to go ahead!”

One version of the rumor mentions that in this movie remake, Inuyasha would be a rock star, which Tom thought would be quite fun. “I would love to play a character who plays the guitar or does something musical,” Tom said. “To be able to use my guitar as part of a job would be perfect! I’d never want to stop filming! I’m actually trying out for another role in which the character plays the guitar; I’m very excited about it!”

TOM CAN’T WAIT FOR HARRY POTTER

But for now, Tom continues to prepare to play the OTHER demon-boy character in his life, Draco Malfoy. “I’ve popped onto the set a few times, and things seem to be going like clockwork. I can’t wait to get back on the set and get down to business. I’m also looking forward to challenging Dan to another game of cricket at lunchtime. We both get very competitive!”

Tom starts full-time filming for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” in June.

    Weird. But cute.

  2. OH MY DAMN! oh. my. damn. i was baout to lose my mind for a minute there! i was like “no way Tom is gonna be Inuyasha!? oh snap!” woo lordy! got my heart racing for a minute there. anybody else an Inuyasha fan? lol

    • I had never heard of Inuyasha before someone e-mailed me about it (regarding Tom). I had to quickly research what it is all about.

      Imagine Tom with hair that long – would be so fun to see!

  3. Tom as Inuyasha? Interesting rumor. Personally I would prefer to see him as Inuyasha’s bruv Sesshoumaru. But – looking on the above pic – Tom actually reminds me of Sanji from One Piece!!

    • I completely agree with the Sesshoumaru, Tom would be awesome. definetely see the Sanji there, especially with the way that he is standing, there is no doubt that he could pull it off.

  4. OMG!!! I would love to see that. :mrgreen:

    Tom as Inuyasha would be just wonderful. Let’s wait and see if this will became true or not. 😕

    I read the other day that Wanner is putting up a Death Note movie…there even a page at IMDb about it: Death Note (2011)

    I think we should keep an eye on that, maybe they’ll ask Tom to play Light Yagami. :mrgreen: 😉

  5. Honestly, I don’t think this is a great role for him. Anime/manga fans are way too protective of the series and having a British guy in it won’t please them very much. Death Note and all the similar movies didn’t get good reception with the fanbase. Just my opinion. I wouldn’t mind personally but I just don’t want to see him get bashed everywhere.

  6. OMG!! if there is a truth 2 this rumor…OMG!! i am a fan of the show inuyasha and OMG!! if tom were 2 be inuyasha himself!!..i jus might faint!!
    inuyasha is a gret character but not completely close 2 Draco.. but is quite close..mostly stubborn..
    ::going in2 silly talk:: i wonder who would play kagome..considerin that they end up 2gether..the original luv of his life was kikioe but she died once neraku was reborn..haha i can jus imagine “sit”!! inuyasha as a rock star!!..LMFAO!! that would b so funny!!
    that would also b kewl if he was light!! i am a veiwer of the show..it is a good show but i donthink that he will b light, they have already done 2 Death Note movies b4..4 some reason i thought L died in 1 of the movies…but at that time i had not heard of Near..so i guess he was killed in an epp unless they recreated the situation..i wouldnt knw…::exiting silly talk::
    it is interesting 2 think of Tom apart of anime, i cant rly find most of it true bc they use alot of japanese in them anyway..but it would still b kewl if he was inuyasha
    srry if i scared any1 with my silly talke session..lmao!! i couldnt help myself }^]

  7. Inuyasha rocks and is such a complex character! Hearing about a possible live action? Made my day. Hearing the very small chance of Tom playing said Inu.. Squee mode.

    It would be very interesting to see indeed!
