Russell Crowe: I don't want to play a superhero
Speaking to the BBC, the actor, who is best known for roles in A beautiful Mind, Gladiator and L.A. Confidential, said he would rather wait for a film which he is interested in.
The star stated: "The business … is shaping itself around event films, which are quite often cartoons or superheroes, and it's just not my thing. You just have to be patient."
Crowe was recently seen in Ridley Scott's version of Robin Hood, starring alongside Cate Blanchett, William Hurt and Matthew Macfadyen.
He will soon be seen in The Next Three Days, which is due for release on January 7th, 2011. It centres on a married couple, whose life is turned upside down when the wife is accused of murder.
Rumours also suggest that Crowe is taking on a role in Westworld, a sci-wi western expected to hit cinemas in 2011.
