Jamie Bell: 'Andrew Garfield is the right choice for Spider-Man'

Jamie Bell has no regrets about missing out on the chance to play Spider-Man - because he "never felt connected" to the web-spinning superhero.

The Billy Elliot star was tipped as the favourite to play Peter Parker in upcoming movie The Amazing Spider-Man but he lost the coveted role to fellow Brit Andrew Garfield.

Bell admits he "failed" at his screen-test, but he has no hard feelings about the casting decision.

When asked what superhero he would like to portray on the big screen, Bell tells GQ, "Considering I failed at the first one (superhero audition), I don't know.

"I've never felt particularly connected to Peter Parker, (so) I felt like they made the right decision. I actually can't wait to see the movie - I think it's going to be great. My favourite superhero is obviously Batman because he's the sexiest. But I can't imagine myself as Batman."
