Justin Timberlake won't be climbing into spandex tights anytime soon -- at least when it comes to potentially playing a superhero.

Pause for sadsies. The singer-turned-actor appeared at San Diego's annual Comic-Con on Thursday with Amanda Seyfried, the two promoting their upcoming sci-fi thriller "In Time."

When asked if he'd consider taking on a major superhero franchise, as have fellow young thesps Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans and Ryan Reynolds, Timberlake sounded off about his anxiety around those kinds of roles.

"I’m scared … of the pressure of putting on the tights of a character that already exists," he told Hero Complex. 

Have it your way, Justin. So we won't see you in tights. But as costar Mila Kunis tells it, JT's new flick  "Friends With Benefits" has plenty of "tushy." 


Mila Kunis confirms: The date with Marine Sgt. Scott Moore is on!
