Charlie Sheen’s Spider-Man Dreams

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen always wanted to play Spider-Man.

The Anger Management star revealed he once tried to buy the rights to the comic book and star in a big screen adaptation featuring the superhero and his alter-ego Peter Parker, but he was talked out of it.

Speaking on podcast Mohr Stories, he told Jay Mohr, "I had an office at Orion and I brought them Spider-Man. I said 'Look, in a couple of years, I'll be too old to play Peter Parker. And they said, 'Yeah we're just thinking that cartoons are not the future, comic books are not the future.' And I said, 'But it's 'Spider-Man. I'm perfect.' I had a guy who was going to get the rights for me."

However, the company talked him out of the idea, which Charlie says is something they should regret after later going into bankruptcy. "They were like, 'Nah, we're gonna wait.' They didn't know s**t," he said.
