They've never asked. What do I have to do? God, I want to throw a shield at somebody. I want that. And I don't want to play the guy in the suit who tells the superheroes what's going on, I don't want to be that guy. 'Well, you know Batman...Captain America, Iron Man, here's what we've discovered.' I don't want to be that guy. I want to get in there, I want to play The Flash or something like that. They'll never give me a chance."
