Singer Justin Timberlake is ready for the big screen as The Riddler in the upcoming Superman sequel. Timberlake has applauded Ben Affleck’s casting as the Caped Crusader in the Man of Steel sequel, revealing he has become a big fan of the actor after working with him on new film Runner Runner last year.
In a new interview with Fresh 102.7, Timberlake revealed, “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.”
If there is any room in the upcoming film for a villain, Timberlake said he wants in. He explained, “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, 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!”
