Tom Hanks talks superheroes and Bond villains during an appearance on Friday’s “Graham Norton Show”.
Hanks, who has been busy promoting “Toy Story 4”, admits he’s never been asked to be in a superhero flick.
When asked if it is true that he was once offered the role of “Batman”, the actor says, “It would be comical, can you imagine me in that suit and with my voice? I have never been asked to be in a superhero film but would love to play a villain in a Bond movie.”
Hanks was also asked about recording the final outing of Woody in “Toy Story 4”, admitting it has been emotional.
“It was terrible. I started recording Woody in 1991 and each film takes about four years. It was my very last session and when I’d said the last line they said, ‘Okay, great, thanks,’ and just like that 24 years was over.
“All I could say was ‘Oh my, oh my’ over and over again and my bottom lip started quivering. I got in my car and drove away with the music playing and the credits rolling in my head.”
Talking more about how hard recording the character was, he says, “I never began a recording session without wishing it was already over. Woody is clenched all the time. It’s exhausting.”
Joking that there could easily be a “Toy Story 5” without him, because everything he has ever said as Woody is recorded, Hanks continues, “I keep begging them to do that!”
