Having initially remained silent as rumours started to circulate, the Love/Hate star has finally cracked and confirmed he has joined the cast of The Avengers alongside stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt, just to name a few.
Formally known as King Nidge to many Irish fans, the 40-year-old actor is believed to play the role of mind-controlling Ebony Maw.
Speaking on RTÉ Radio One's Second Captains, Tom said: “I am. But it’s like I’m one of those ones where you go into a sentence to say something about it and hope you have a job at the end of the sentence.”
“You sign so many documents and waivers and people ask you about it and you have to give the generic and boring ‘I can’t say too much about it’.”
“But I am doing it and it’s really amazing and an amazing thing to be part of.”
