Interviewed by radio station Fresh 102.7’s Jim & Kim Morning Show, the singer said he would love to play a villain in a superhero movie.

“I ain’t playin’ Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie,” he said. “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 was like a sociopath,” he explained. “He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I wanna play proper crazy… I’m ready. The Riddler. Give me a call!”

Justin also shared his view about the recent appointment of Ben Affleck in the role of Batman.

While the choice has been criticized since its official announcement, Timberlake, who stars alongside Affleck in the film Runner Runner, has a different opinion.

“Ben Affleck as Batman. I like it,” he said. “I think he’s a brilliant filmmaker. “I think he’s an extreme talent so he could surprise a lot of people.”
