There's no question about it. Justin Timberlake wants to riddle you this and that!
Obviously, Justin can do anything he sets his mind to as long as he's got his suit & tie, but he seriously wants to add a mask & cane to that ensemble as well.
In a recent interview, JT was commenting on how Ben Affleck will make a great Batman, an opinion which we totally agree with, when he was asked if he'd play Robin:
“Not a chance in hell. 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. 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.”
Holy Grail, Batman!
Do you hear that Zach Snyder? Call him now! How else are we going to see Justin in a unitard?
This casting choice is not a very hard puzzle to solve. Anyone would be proper crazy themselves not to pick him.
