Last week when it was announced that Ben Affleck would be the new Batman it seemed that everyone was against it. I, for one, think Ben will be a great Bruce Wayne, but it seems that die hard fans can’t forget Daredevil. One of Ben’s co-stars is coming to his defence and thinks Ben will be an awesome Batman. Justin Timberlake gave an interview to radio station Fresh 102.7 and here’s what he said about Batfleck;
“Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it,” says Justin. “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.”
He was also asked about what he would say if he was offered the role of Robin;
“Not a chance in hell,” says Justin. “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 was like a sociopath,” Timberlake continued. “He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I’m wanna play proper crazy.”
“I’m ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call.”
Um, am I alone here in wishing that JT would just forget about the acting altogether and stick to singing? I am certain I don’t want to see him as The Riddler!
