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”
