After 30 years in the spotlight, Tom Cruise is still one of the most bankable stars in the world - but he won't be taking his star power to superhero films, despite being biggest current blockbuster film genre.

"I really enjoy those films a lot," Cruise said of superhero movies on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. "But I make [Mission: Impossible], [Jack Reacher]..."

"Tough guy movies," Kimmel chimed in, with Cruise agreeing.

Cruise was in talks to play Tony Stark in an early version of Iron Man way back in 1998, produced at the time by 20th Century Fox.
