Here's one Hollywood superstar who's not satisfied with the blockbuster roles he has already done. Actor Keanu Reeves has said he was keen to play a superhero, but the studios never offered him such roles. The actor, whose latest big screen offering is revenge thriller John Wick that released Oct 24, wanted to be a Marvel or DC hero, but was passed over, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

"I always wanted to play Wolverine, but I didn't get that. And they have a great Wolverine now," the 50-year-od actor told Moviefone.

"I always wanted to play The Dark Knight, but I didn't get that one. They've had some great Batmans. So, now I'm just enjoying them as an audience," he added.

Hugh Jackman is seen as Wolverine in X-Men series since 2000, while Ben Affleck has been roped in to play Batman in Batman Vs Superman.
