However, it seems he may have gotten more than he bargained for when he jumped into the X-Men world, the star admitting that he has to run everything past studio Fox before committing to other work.

"I just signed my life away to them," Hardy told Digital Spy. "They just say, "We"ll use you if we want" and then anything I do, everything I do, I have to ask them if I can do it first."

The star continued: "Yeah! Pretty much, yeah. So they have the option on me, but it"s not like something set in stone. It"s just that they have the option."

Still, he hasn"t done too badly out of it, as he is also lined up to play Roger Taylor in upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

Before that, he will next be appearing in The Woman in White for BBC One, a new adaptation of Wilkie Collins" classic novel.

However, he explained that the new version is "a very different take on the story... grittier and a bit more down-to-earth".

"There are a few differences – there tend to always be a few differences with any adaptation," he said to Digital Spy and other press.

"It was difficult, I loved the book so much, I was so married to it. I found it hard... any slight differences, I would sometimes argue! I"d say, "But in the book..." but I had to just let it go."

Reflecting on his career so far, the star continued: "I have been very fortunate. I got a big break in getting X-Men: Apocalypse – that helped me a lot to get other things. But I feel there is less of a stigma about soap actors these days."

The Woman in White starts this Sunday (April 22) at 9pm on BBC One.
