Carla Gugino would love a role in Zack Snyder's Superman reboot.

The actress has worked with the director in Watchmen and Sucker Punch, but isn't sure if she'll have a part in the forthcoming superhero film.

"I don't think so, but you never know - I would always love to go play with Zack, but I have no idea, is the answer," she said.

Carla, who plays Dr Vera Gorski in Zack's epic action fantasy Sucker Punch, had only high praise for the filmmaker.

"Zack is an incredibly inspired person. He's one of those people who has a lot he wants to do and a lot he wants to say, and yet there's this really playful quality in the way that it manifests itself," she gushed.

"There's a really boyish, playful spirit but he is also a really skilled filmmaker. So obviously the duo is a great combination because certainly for a movie like Sucker Punch, you have to have a lot of imagination. He creates an environment on set that's just really fun and leaves room for a lot of discoveries."

The 39-year-old won her role in Sucker Punch after working on Watchmen.

"We'd spoken about the movie during Watchmen, because he's really been thinking about this movie for a long time. But it was afterwards that he called and said there was a role," she revealed.

:: Sucker Punch is in cinemas now.
