Pop singer and crossover actor Justin Timberlake scoffs at notions that he should play Robin. Says he'll never play superhero and then reveals he's very keen on playing a supervillain."The Riddler is my favorite villain...Gimme a call."

Justin Timberlake Riddler Batman vs Superman

Justin Timberlake may have started out as a boy band pop singer but he's gone on to have great success and has even crossed over into film. He's actually starring in movies these days, leading such films as In Time, Friends with Benefits , The Social Network and the upcoming Runner Runner (which also stars new Batman, Ben Affleck). When he was asked by local radio station Fresh 102.7 FM if he'd like to be a superhero, perhaps Robin to his Runner Runner co-star, Timberlake gave an emphatic no. "Not a chance in hell. I ain’t playin’ Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie. I just don’t.” Timberlake continued, "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 like proper crazy. I’’m ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call." Do you still view Timberlake as a boy band member or has he shed that stigma and become someone you'd like to see in a comic book movie?
