'My little cousin tells me I look like Magneto,' the actor says when revealing what superhero character that he wants to play.
After portraying a vampire in "Twilight" and its sequel, Robert Pattinson has considered about playing a superhero. According to Comic Book Movie, when the British actor was interviewed by Frank Boyle, he admitted that he wants to be Magneto, a villain character with the power of magnetism from "X-Men" world.
"Well yeah [laughs], I think everyone wonders about that sometimes," he said when asked about whether or not he ever thought about playing a superhero in the future. He then added, "My little cousin tells me I look like Magneto so I guess thats who I should probably play [laughs]."
Unfortunately, Pattinson may have no chance to offer himself to play his dream character anytime soon as the film, "Magneto", is reportedly at the back of Marvel's queue. Though David Goyer has written the script for the film, producer Lauren Shuler Donner said, "I'm not sure that film is going to be made. The studio has a wealth of potential stories, and they have to stand back and decide which ones to make."
Although there is only a little possibility to see Robert Pattinson in the superhero film, his acting can next be seen in "Remember Me", which will hit U.S. theaters on March 12, 2010. He additionally has been set to star in drama movie "Bel Ami".
