Pearce: I don't want superhero role
Guy Pearce isn't sure he would like to play a superhero
Guy Pearce has said he would not like to play a superhero.
The Lawless star has a role in comic book movie Iron Man 3, but he turned down the lead role in 2003 Daredevil - which went on to star Ben Affleck - saying in an interview last year that "comic-strip stuff isn't really my cup of tea, really".
Guy has now told New York Times magazine's Vulture blog: "The thing about Daredevil was that it was the role of Daredevil [that I didn't want to do].
"Certainly in those days... it was ten years ago. I've probably loosened up, and I feel a little more experimental in what I'll take on these days, but I still don't know that I would want to play the superhero myself, since I'm playing a different kind of character in this film.
"And I think that, based on the first two movies, there's a great chemistry between Robert [Downey Jr] and Gwyneth [Paltrow], and I just think the films have a fun, joyful sort of quality about them. I've just enjoyed them. So I just felt like I wanted to be a part of this."
