Nope, JT wants to play a villain, preferably, the Riddler.
"I ain't playin' Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie," Timberlake 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."
It's not that he has a problem with capes or tights (although he does have a penchant for fedoras, so the bowler hat would be an easy switch), he loves the Riddler's particular brand of quick-talking villainy.
"The Riddler was like a sociopath," Timberlake 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!"
As for the storm of controversy surrounding Affleck's casting as the Caped Crusader? Timberlake is more than cool with the choice.
"Ben Affleck as Batman. I like it," said Timberlake. "I think he's an extreme talent so he could surprise a lot of people."
