Benedict Cumberbatch wants to play Batman than any other classic comic book character.

The Sherlock star said he would love to take on the part of the classic comic book character despite the role in the upcoming superhero movies Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Justice League already being given to Ben Affleck, reported Contactmusic.

When asked which character he'd most like to play during a Q&A at DreamWorks Animation's San Diego Comic Con, he said, "Batman, I guess. Yeah." However, Cumberbatch, 38, may have to wait some time to take on the role after it was reported the Argo star is set to play the winged-hero until 2019.

Meanwhile, Cumberbatch is also set to reprise his role as Sherlock in the eponymous BBC series next year.
