When Justin Timberlake stopped by the Fresh 102.7 studios to chat with the Jim & Kim morning show this week (August 27), he tried to put some of those fears of #Batfleck to rest.
“Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it,” says Justin. “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.”
But what if Ben called him to play Robin… would he be game?
“Not a chance in hell,” says Justin. “I ain’t playin’ Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie. Now 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,” Timberlake continued. “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.”
