Tom Hanks is kind of adorable. He gave an interview where he pleaded to be a superhero villain, particularly someone in the Batman universe. I guess seeing Tom Hanks as a villain would be something new, and if Ben Affleck can play Batman, anything is possible. Here’s what he told Showbiz 411 via Huffington Post:
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.
Someone in the comments section pointed out that if the dad from Malcolm in the Middle can play a badass meth cook, Tom Hanks can totally play a comic book movie villain.
Could YOU see Tom Hanks as a Batman villain?
