Jake Gyllenhaal says: "I'd never pass up a superhero"

"Jake Gyllenhaal will play an action hero in the upcoming "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time", but comic book movie fans might remember a time when he was considered for a far more familiar protagonist: Spider-Man. After missing out on replacing Tobey Maguire in "Spider-Man 2", his upcoming role has us wondering whether playing a superhero was still on his to-do list now that he's in the heroic mindset.

So, when we caught up with him on the Oscars red carpet, we asked him just that question.. "I'd never pass up a superhero, man", he smiled".
