Justin Timberlake is ready to get in touch with his dark side. During a recent radio interview, Timberlake made it clear he doesn't want to play a superhero — or worse yet, a superhero's sidekick.
"Not a chance in hell. I ain't playin' Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie," Timberlake told Fresh 102.7's Jim & Kim Morning Show on Tuesday.
But Timberlake didn't rule out appearing in a superhero movie as the bad guy. In fact, he has his eye on a particular role. "I'll tell you, the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funny enough, is the Riddler," he said. "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."
Regarding the latest Batman casting, Timberlake says he has full faith in Ben Affleck's ability to pull off the role. "Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it," Timberlake said. "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."
Do you think Timberlake would make a good Riddler?
