Taylor Lautner Disses Stretch Armstrong’s Superhero Powers

By: / June 25, 2010

While Eclipse star Taylor Lautner may have the benefit of playing one of the hunkiest supernatural dudes on the big screen this year, his non-Twilight film projects might not include characters who are as cool as Jacob.

The 18-year-old hunk recently signed on for Stretch Armstrong the movie adaptation of the iconic toy’s life story. Unfortunately, being able to stretch your limbs to great length isn’t exactly as bad ass as being able to turn into a werewolf. Taylor complains to MTV News (via Starpulse):

It’s, like, the worst superhero power, possibly, to get, and how you’re going to take that and use it for good. The awesome thing with toys is it doesn’t give you a story line, so you get to create it. The development process for this movie has been awesome and it’s going to continue to be. I just can’t wait to see a script… I just want to see it.

Sure, Stretch Armstrong might not be the sexiest of the superheroes out there but we bet with Taylor playing him the toy will get a boost in coolness.
