Brad Pitt has revealed that his kids would love to get him in superhero fancy dress to play Spiderman.

Speaking to People at the premiere of his new animated movie Megamind, the actor said his little ones loved the webbed wonder.

"Spiderman is big in our family. The kids think he's the coolest. If there was one superhero they would want me to play, that would be the one," he revealed.

Unfortunately for Pitt, Andrew Garfield recently inherited Spiderman fancy dress from Tobey Maguire in order to play him in the new movie, but at least the Ocean's Eleven star gets to appear as Metro Man in Megamind.

Last month, Gab from said he would love to see Pitt taking on the role of the DC Comics character Flash.

The writer said he thought he would be good at it and would create some real competition for the Marvel superheroes.
