The 57-year-old rues nobody has asked him to play such a role so far, reports huffingtonpost.com.
During an interview with new webiste Showbiz 411, when a fan asked why he'd never starred in a big superhero movie, Hanks said: "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," he added.
