"Spider-Man is big in our family," Pitt, 46, told People magazine at the premiere. "The kids think he's the coolest. If there was one superhero they would want me to play, that would be the one. I'd score big with them."

The film, which opens Friday, had back-to-back premieres this week, one in Los Angeles on Saturday and the other in New York on Wednesday.
