People of the world, the following exchange from Details magazine needs to be discussed:

Details: You're 35 now, but in your twenties, you got offered pretty much everything. You turned down Superman Returns, and you were in talks to play almost every other superhero.

Hartnett: Spider-Man was something we talked about. Batman was another one. But I somehow knew those roles had potential to define me, and I didn't want that. I didn't want to be labeled as Superman for the rest of my career. I was maybe 22, but I saw the danger.

WHAT?! WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE YOU SPEAK OF???

YOU COULD'VE BEEN BATMAN??

This is disappointing news, indeed.
