Justin Timberlake to Play the Riddler in Man of Steel Sequel?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Is Justin Timberlake swapping out his dapper black suit and tie for a green one?

The singer revealed that he "would love" to play the famed villain, the Riddler, opposite Ben Affleck's Batman in the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel.

Speaking to radio station Fresh 102.7's Jim & Kim Morning Show this week, Justin began by shooting down talk that he would be a good Robin:

"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," Justin went on, "Because I grew up loving Batman, funny enough, is the Riddler."

"The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I'm gonna play crazy, I wanna play proper crazy… I'm ready. The Riddler. Give me a call!"

Timberlake had nothing but praise for Affleck in the title role, too.

"Ben Affleck as Batman. I like it," said Timberlake his Runner Runner co-star. "I think he's brilliant ... he's an extreme talent so he could surprise a lot of people."

To reiterate, Affleck has actually been cast in the role, while any Timberlake involvement is pure speculation. That said, vote in THG's polls below ...

What do you think: Should Justin play the Riddler?


And once again, what about Ben as Batman?
