Charlie Sheen always wanted to play 'SPIDER-MAN'.

The 'Anger Management' star revealed he once tried to buy the rights to the comic book and star in a big screen adaptation featuring the superhero and his alter-ego Peter Parker but he was talked out of it.

Speaking on podcast 'Mohr Stories', he told Jay Mohr: ''I had an office at Orion and I brought them 'Spider-Man'.

''I said 'Look, in a couple of years, I'll be too old to play Peter Parker. And they said, 'yeah we're just thinking that cartoons are not the future, comic books are not the future.'

''And I said, 'But it's 'Spider-Man'. I'm perfect.'

''I had a guy who was going to get the rights for me.''

However, the company talked him out of the idea, which Charlie says is something they should regret after later going into bankruptcy.

He said: ''They were like, 'Nah, we're gonna wait.' They didn't know s**t.''

Despite a turbulent time after being sacked from sitcom 'Two And A Half Men', Charlie has again found success on the small screen with the news that his latest show 'Anger Management' has been renewed for an epic 90 episode run.

Chuck Saftler, executive vice-president at FX Networks said: ''Charlie Sheen and the entire cast did an amazing job in the first 10 episodes, which were produced in a very tight window. I have No Doubt that the producers and cast will be able to pull off the Herculean task of producing 90 episodes over the next two years.

''We set a very high ratings bar that included some additional hurdles for 'Anger Management' to earn its back-90 order, and the series met and exceed those metrics.
