Justin Timberlake: “Robin, No! But I’d Be Riddler!”

What is it with some actors? Sometimes, they just have to open up their mouths and really get those size 10’s in there. So recently, we had the Wahlberg laughably suggesting he could replace RDJ as Tony Stark. And now, it’s the turn of Justin Timberlake:

Interviewed on Fresh 102.7‘s Jim & Kim Show, and asked if he consider re-teaming up with Ben Affleck (the two have just completed Runner Runner), as Robin to his Batman in Man Of Steel 2, Timberlake said, “Not a chance in hell. I ain’t playing 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 Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I’m wanna play proper crazy.”

The actor also voiced his support for Ben Affleck, adding, “Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it. 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.”

I was in favour of Heath Ledger as Joker, even though I’d only seen him in A Knight’s Tale. I quite liked Timberlake in In Time, and he was brilliant in Social Network, but this… even Jim Carrey couldn’t top TV’s Riddler, Frank Gorshin, so I draw the line here. Still – could be worse – could be casting Ben Affleck as Batman… Doh!!!
