In an interview with ShortList , the actor reveals that became a possibility until he refused to play Anakin Skywalker in the prequels Star Wars. DiCaprio says he had "a meeting with George Lucas about it," but decided to reject it because it was not far:I felt I was not ready.
As if that were not enough, the star of "The Revenant 'has revealed other roles he has rejected, including Robin in Batman Forever 'or Peter Parker in' Spiderman ' . Anyway, he has made clear he is willing to interpret potential "blockbusters" in the future, including superheroes.
Moreover, it must be awesome to be straight and to reject such important roles , as other actors would kill for them. This shows that DiCaprio always took seriously his career, something that is apparent in his films.
