Tom Hanks wants to play a superhero
New York: Tom Hanks, whose wide array of roles make him one of the most versatile stars working today, says a comic-book role is the one gig he can't seem to land.
During an interview, Hanks, 57, was asked why he'd never starred in a big superhero movie, to which he replied, "They don't ask me, man. I keep trying. Come on, I can do it. I can do it. Even let me play a bad guy, let me play the bad guy against Batman. I'll do anything, call me. They've never asked. What do I gotta do? God, I want to throw a shield at somebody. I want that.
"And I don't want to play the guy in the suit who tells the superheroes what's going on, I don't want to be that guy. 'Well, you know Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, here's what we've discovered', I don't want to be that guy. I want to get in there, I want to play The Flash or something like that. They'll never give me a chance."
Hanks' latest film 'Captain Phillips' has hit the screens.
