Some of our favorite superheroes almost looked very different under their masks. That’s the news coming out of Hollywood as actor Josh Hartnett told Details Magazine that he had the chance to play Batman, Superman and Spider-Man. ‘Spider-Man was something we talked about. Batman was another one. But I somehow knew those roles had potential to define me, and I didn’t want that,” said Hartnett. “I didn’t want to be labeled as Superman for the rest of my career. I was maybe 22, but I saw the danger.” That decision certainly worked out well for Christian Bale, Henry Cavill and Andrew Garfield! Instead, the actor carved out a career for himself that included parts in Pearl Harbor, Black Hawk Down and other films. Now, he’s gearing up for the premiere of his new Showtime TV show, Penny Dreadful, which co-stars Billie Piper.
