Justin Timberlake as The Riddler? We can totally see it.
In a recent radio interview with Fresh 102.7, Justin Timberlake was asked if he’d like to play Robin opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman in the upcoming “Man Of Steel” sequel pitting Superman against the Caped Crusader. His response: “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 favorite villain… I’m ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call”
Hmmmm, interesting! Although we totally didn’t get the villain vibe from our main TennMan — especially after his total hero’s welcome at the VMAs last Sunday — we think we can totally see it! Here are seven reasons why JT is the only man for the job, should B’Affleck’s Batman need to square off against The Riddler.
1.) Justin’s totally comfortable in spandex.
2.) Justin knows his way around a riddle.
Check out the rest of our 7 Reasons Why Justin Timberlake Should Play The Riddler after the jump.
