The Talented Mr. Ripley star was up for the Man of Steel role in the failed 2003 film Superman: Flyby but it didn't feel like the right fit. "This is true. Yeah. And there was a process of flirtation going on," he said on The Playlist's Discourse podcast. "And I always resisted because it just felt like (off)." He acknowledged that his resistance to the superhero role may seem ridiculous now he's played Yon-Rogg in Captain Marvel and Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts franchise and explained that Superman "felt like a step too far" at the time.
