In a recent interview Justin Timberlake turned down the idea of playing Robin, but expressed his interest in playing the Riddler alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman.
The Sexyback singer turned actor recently expressed his approval for Affleck as Batman on radio station Fresh 102.7. “Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it,” Timberlake told them. “I worked with Ben last summer and I’ve seen his process. I think he’s a brilliant filmmaker. I think he’s an extreme talent so he could surprise a lot of people.”
When asked about whether or not he would be interested in playing Robin, the singer answered quickly. “Not a chance in hell,” he said. “I ain’t playin’ Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie. Now VILLAIN! I’ll tell you 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,” Timberlake continued. “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.”
