The Billy Elliot star was tipped as the favourite to play Peter Parker in upcoming movie The Amazing Spider-Man but he lost the coveted role to fellow Brit Andrew Garfield.
Bell admits he ""failed"" at his screen-test, but he has no hard feelings about the casting decision.
When asked what superhero he would like to portray on the big screen, Bell tells GQ, ""Considering I failed at the first one (superhero audition), I don't know.
""I've never felt particularly connected to Peter Parker, (so) I felt like they made the right decision. I actually can't wait to see the movie - I think it's going to be great. My favourite superhero is obviously Batman because he's the sexiest. But I can't imagine myself as Batman.""
