It was recently claimed that singer turned actor Justin Timberlake wanted the chance to play the role of Riddler in the planned Batman vs. Superman movie, or any future standalone Batman film that may happen. Justin said that, rather than play a superhero he would much prefer to play the role of a villain.
However, it seems that things were taken a little out of context, as the singer has now explained. While Justin did mention playing the role of Riddler, he has now admitted that it was just hypothetically speaking, as he would find it a challenge to live up to such a role.
Timberlake explained to a number of gahered press, including The AP, "Something I said recently got completely misinterpreted… I have no desire to be any kind of superhero. I could never live up to those kind of standards."
Justin Timberlake can next be seen on the big screen, starring with Ben Affleck, Gemma Arterton and Anthony Mackie, in the movie Runner Runner, which is directed by Brad Furman and will open on September 27 in the UK, before hitting the US on October 4.
