Tom Hanks has played so many memorable film roles, and played them well. Everything that is except a super hero, so far that is the only type of role he hasn't had the chance to portray according to MSN Entertainment reports on Monday, October 21.
Hanks, 57, revealed during a recent interview that he has never been approached to play a super hero.
"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 also recently revealed he was battling some health issues and stated earlier this month that he was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
