Robert Pattinson, who has become a household name after playing a vampire in Twilight has expressed a desire to play the villainous character of Magneto from X-Men.
The British actor has considered about playing a superhero and admitted that he wants to be Magneto, a villain Marvel Comics character with the power of magnetism from the X-Men world, Aceshowbiz reported. “I think everyone wonders about that sometimes. My little cousin tells me I look like Magneto so I guess that’s who I should play,” Pattinson said.
Unfortunately, the 23-year-old actor has to wait for quite long to characterise his dream superhero role as the film, Magneto, has reportedly been put on the back burner. “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,” producer Lauren Shuler Donner said.
Pattinson next films are Remember Me and Bel Ami with Uma Thurman.
