Justin Timberlake has revealed his aspirations to play the role of his "favourite villain" The Riddler!
When asked whether he would be up for playing Robin to Ben Affleck's Batman in the upcoming Superman vs Batman flick, Justin told US radio station Fresh 102.7: “Not a chance in hell.”
He continued: “I ain’t playin’ Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie. Now a VILLAIN! I’ll tell you the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funnily enough, is The Riddler. The Riddler is my favourite villain.”
The 32-year-old singer-turned-actor said of the iconic character: “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.”
The Mirrors singer also showed support for the decision to cast Ben Affleck as Batman in the sequel to Man of Steel.
Justin added: “Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it. I worked with Ben last summer so 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.”
Timberlake stars alongside Affleck in the film Runner, Runner which is due out later this year.
