London, July 26: Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he wants to play the role of Batman.
The 'Sherlock' star said that he would love to swap his deerstalker hat for a long dark cape to fight crime as Batman, the Daily Star reported.
The British actor, who revealed his superhero aspirations while at the DreamWorks Animation Comic-Con panel, said that as far as he is aware, it couldn't work out because he's doing a little play called Hamlet in London.
Cumberbatch added that he doesn't think he could even if that was on the cards, though it sounds like a fantastic project and its a shame if he misses out.(ANI)
