Spider-dad Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt's children want him to play Spider-Man.

The actor has revealed his six kids - who he raises with his partner Angelina Jolie - are all huge fans of the web-slinging superhero and would love it if he donned his famous red and blue suit.

Speaking at the New York premiere of his new animated movie 'Megamind' on Wednesday (04.11.10), Brad said: "Spider-Man is big in our family. The kids think he's the coolest. If there was one superhero they would want me to play, that would be the one. I'd score big with them."

Andrew Garfield was recently cast as the Marvel character in the new Spider-Man movie, taking over the role of Peter Parker and his super-powered alter-ego from Tobey Maguire.

The 47-year-old star - who voices the superhero character Metro Man in 'Megamind' - admits he always considers his children when accepting new roles.

He added: "Every role we (me and Angelina) choose now, we choose it for the kids. Will the kids like it? Will they like it when they are young adults? Or is this a good location for the family? That's it.

"With 'Megamind' hopefully they will think dad's really cool and better than Spider-Man."

Brad took sons Maddox, nine, and Pax, six, to the premiere.

His other children, Zahara, five, Shiloh, four, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, are currently in Budapest, Hungary, with their mother Angelina who is shooting her directorial debut in the city.
