London: Josh Hartnett has revealed that he turned down three enormous superhero roles to avoid being typecast in his career.

The `Pearl Harbor` actor said that all the three superhero roles including Superman, Spider-Man and Batman had the potential to define him and he didn`t want to be labeled as `Superman` for the rest of his career, reported.

Harnett is currently filming a horror TV series ` Penny Dreadful` where his character is a sharpshooter who is travelling around the world but in reality he is running from something and he is suffering through lots of personal troubles.
