"I'd love to play a superhero," the actor said. "I would love to play Batman."
Harington thinks Batman films have gotten to be too brooding lately, which is something he would change. "I'd camp him up again," said Harington, who has appeared in films like 2014's Pompeii but is best known as Jon Snow on the HBO hit. "He’s gone way too dark and serious. I’d like proper spandex."
"Superhero movies got all too serious — they need to get silly again," Harington added. Whether this means he wants to see nipples on the suit again, George Clooney-style, remains to be seen.
Harington is not the first actor to voice his desire to play the Caped Crusader, who will be protrayed by Ben Affleck in 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Keanu Reeves recently said he wanted to play both Batman and Wolverine but was passed over.
Game of Thrones' fifth season premieres April 12, 2015, on HBO. Harington's interview can be seen below.
