Tom Hanks Wants To Play A Superhero "I Want To Play The Flash Or Something Like That"

Tom Hanks wants to play a superhero but says he never gets offered any of those types of roles. "Let me play a bad guy, let me play the bad guy against Batman. I'll do anything, call me." The Academy Award winner also name-drops the Flash as a dream role.

Tom Hanks wants to play the Flash


"No, [it's not a choice], they don't ask me and I keep trying...Come on, I can do it [laughs]. 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 have to 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."
