Tom Hardy Discusses Talking Dogs and Modern-Day Superheroes

Tom Hardy was in L.A. this week promoting his new TV show ... but all he wanted to talk about were mutant dogs and the great superheroes of yesteryear.

We got Tom Monday at the Directors Guild of America Theater -- where he had an event for his new show, "Taboo" -- and he sure had a lot to say about talking dogs.

Watch -- he also clears up his true feelings about modern-day heroes on the big screen. Sounds like he just misses the rough-and-tumble guys from the '80s.
