Could Ben Affleck really be fighting Justin Timberlake in an upcoming film?
In J.T.’s perfect world, the answer, for better or worse, is yes!
On a radio show this week, the singer shared his thoughts on the hotly anticipated Man of Steel sequel, in which Ben will officially don the batsuit.
“Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it,” Justin approved, showering the Oscar-winner with compliments left and right. “I worked with Ben last summer and I’ve seen his process. I think he’s a brilliant filmmaker. I think he’s an extreme talent so he could surprise a lot of people.”
But don’t assume that means Justin likes Ben all THAT much. Because, if given the opportunity, he’d rather fight against him than alongside him.
When asked if he’d be interested in buddying up with Ben as Robin, Justin laughed, “Not a chance in hell.”
He went on to explain, “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 is a sociopath,” Justin elaborated. “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.”
That’s a suit and tie we’d definitely like to see the singer rock.
