Jason Statham has revealed that he has no interest in starring in a superhero movie, telling Digital Spy that "the cape wouldn't fit".

Statham, whose latest movie Homefront opens in UK cinemas this Friday (December 6), confessed that visual effects-driven blockbusters don't hold any personal appeal to him.

"It's all about money, kids pay money to go and see them," Statham said. "The fascination is superheroes, it's what people want to go and see but you wouldn't get me rushing to the cinema to see those. I like the old-fashioned type of film.

"They've never offered me a part in one of those and I don't think the shoes would fit. Or the cape wouldn't fit!"

Speaking about Homefront, which sees him play a retired DEA agent who faces off against Louisiana drug dealers, Statham said he welcomed the opportunity to reunite with Sylvester Stallone.
