Justin Timberlake wants 'bad man' role in 'Batman'

Los Angeles, Sep 1 : Actor-singer Justin Timberlake has expressed a desire to feature in a "Batman" movie. But he does not wish to play the famed superhero.


The pop icon said he doesn't eye playing Batman sidekick Robin in the upcoming "Batman vs. Superman" movie, and he would rather play eccentric villain The Riddler.

"Not a chance in hell. I ain't playing Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie," he said on a radio show, reports variety.com.

"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. The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I'm gonna play crazy, I'm wanna play proper crazy," he added.

The character of The Riddler was last played by Jim Carrey in 1995's "Batman Forever" with Val Kilmer serving as the caped crusader.

Timberlake also praised actor Ben Affleck, who has been chosen to essay the lead part in the new film

"I think he's an extreme talent, so he could surprise a lot of people," he said.

Timberlake will star opposite Affleck in their movie, "Runner, Runner", premiering in October.
