Josh Hartnett was an actor who seemed to be at the height of his career. At one time he was everywhere and was slowly becoming a well-known and serious Hollywood candidate when he was suddenly almost gone. He initially took on some major roles in films such as Pearl Harbor and Black Hawk Down but also deliberately stepped out of the limelight.
There have been reports for years that Hartnett rejected three different roles in large superhero companies the actor has now clearly made it clear that he has only rejected one role instead of often rumored three.
"I didn't reject Spider-Man . I don't know where that came from. I just rejected Superman as a simple offer at this time in my career, when a lot of people asked me, that kind from making films, I had meetings with these directors and people said, "Would you be interested?"
I talked to them about what they were doing and I ultimately decided that I wasn't, but that was one very privileged place for a young man. I'm a little bit outside of boxing and had the leverage to do that and that's the direction I chose. "
Hartnett did that Kind of look that could go with many well-known comic book superheroes whereby the actor, like almost every single DC and Marvel character, is occupied by fans at a certain point in time. Obviously, he wasn't particularly interested, but now that he found that the only role that was offered and rejected was Superman, it only shows how widespread the Hollywood rumor mill can be. Hartnett then added that at least he had a conversation about playing the wanted role of Bruce Wayne aka Batman, which eventually went to Christian Bale, but it didn't go very far.
"No, Batman was not an audition or offer. It was a conversation with the director. [Christopher Nolan] I think there is a lot of misinformation. If you say something about it, it will blown up now. But I don't really care that I tell this story over and over again. "
Of course, if Hartnett had ended up in one of these roles, his career would look very different from what he does today as an actor always stated his preference for smaller roles and less fame, so he is undoubtedly very happy with where he is and should be.
With the publication of several projects, 2020 could be a big year for J osh Hartnett, in which the actor starred in the upcoming thriller Target Number One the Guy Ritchie crime drama Cash Truck and the television series Paradise Lost . This clarification comes to us from Variety .
