Josh Jackson could've been Batman...

Joshua Jackson has been talking to MTV about superheroes, and we're a bit surprised by some of the revelations.

Firstly, that he made it down to the last four or five actors in consideration to play Batman in Begins. Don't get us wrong, Jackson would make a fine Bruce Wayne - but Batman ?

At least Jackson agrees. “I don’t like to lose any job, but they cast the right guy. I mean, Christian Bale was excellent. I don’t really think of myself in a sort of comic book hero way, you know what I mean? This might be why I didn’t get that job.”

Secondly, that he appears to be the only 20-something actor in the world unaware that Tobey Maguire hasn't signed on for Spider-Man 4.

For that part of the interview, head over to MTV .
