Justin Timberlake Up for Playing The Riddler, Not Robin, Opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman
Justin Timberlake says he’s totally cool with his Runner, Runner costar Ben Affleck playing Batman in the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel. Just don’t ask him anything about playing Robin.
“I ain’t playin’ Robin,” he quipped to Fresh 102.7’s Jim and Kim Show on Tuesday. “I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie.”
If it were up to him, he says he’d much rather play a villain, instead.
“The villain I want to play more than anything — because I grew up loving Batman, funny enough — is the Riddler. The Riddler is my favorite villain. The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I’m wanna play proper crazy. I’m ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call.”
Your move, Hollywood.
