Michael Cera, best known for his roles in Juno and Arrested Development (although he’s had some hilarious bit parts in other films), has reportedly signed on to the cast of Batman v Superman as The Riddler.
The flick, which stars Ben Affleck as Batman (something that some fans are up in arms about, but I am loving!) will also have a second villain. Jesse Eisenberg has signed on to play Superman’s (played by Henry Cavill) nemesis Lex Luther. According to JoBlo, “this will mark the second big screen incarnation of The Riddler since Jim Carrey played the part in Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever.”
What do you think of this casting decision? It’ll definitely be interested to see Michael Cera play someone other than an awkward teenager!
