Wahlberg admits during a promotional interview for his latest Hollywood hit film “2 Guns” with Yahoo! UK Movies that he will indeed grab at the opportunity:

“I would like to take over the ‘Iron Man’ franchise for Robert Downey,”

He added:

“[But] it’s one of those things where I kind of like playing real people, [so] I’ve never been asked.”

Wahlberg also reveals that he almost starred in a Batman film:

“Once I was kind of being talked about for the Robin role in ‘Batman [Forever]’,” he laughs about the Joel Schumacher pic that turns out to be the “worst movie ever.”

“Somebody dodged a bullet!”
