LEONARDO DICAPRIO To Take On A Superhero Role?

By on 16 July, 2010

Despite turning down roles such as SPIDER-MAN and snubbing an offer to play ROBIN alongside BATMAN, Leonardo DiCaprio refuses to rule out playing a superhero….at some point.

The actor was the favourite to star as Robin in 1995’s ‘BATMAN FOREVER’ and as the web-slinging ‘SPIDER-MAN‘ in the hit blockbuster movies – but turned down lucrative offers as he didn’t want to commit to longterm franchises.

Speaking to Shortlist magazine, he says:

“I never screen- tested (to play Robin in Batman Forever). I had a meeting with Joel Schumacher. It was just one meeting and, no, I didn’t end up doing it… As I recall I took the meeting, but didn’t want to play the role. Joel Schumacher is a very talented director but I don’t think I was ready for anything like that.

“(Spider-Man) was another one of those situations, similar to Robin, where I didn’t feel ready to put on that suit yet. They got in touch with me.”

But the ‘INCEPTION‘ star admits he’s open to suiting up for a hero role in the future:

“You never know. You never know. They’re getting better and better as far as complex characters in these movies. I haven’t yet. But no, I don’t rule out anything.”
