The rumours about the Batman vs. Supermanmovie continue to come thick and fast and some of Hollywood's stars are putting themselves forward for roles. Singer and actor Justin Timberlake dismissed any chance of him ever playing Robin but he says that he would love to play Riddler.
Jim Carrey previously played Riddler
Timberlake told Fresh 102.7, "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."
He added, "The Riddler is my favorite villain. I’m ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call. The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I’m wanna play proper crazy."

It is unlikely that we will see Riddler in Batman vs. Superman, as the film will already have quite a lot to bring to fans but, it is highly expected that there will be a standalone Batman movie in the future, which could well see Riddler as the villain. Batman vs. Superman is aiming for a 2015 release.
