Justin Timberlake is ready to play evil on the big screen!

The singer/actor has weighed in on Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman in the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel and also thrown his hat into the villain ring.

“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 said of the “Argo” star and director joining the DC Comics world during a chat with Fresh 102.7’s “Jim and Kim Show” this week.

But would JT ever want star alongside Ben and Henry Cavill as the Caped Crusader’s protege?

“Not a chance in hell,” he said with a laugh “I ain’t playin’ Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie.”
Well, maybe a little aspiration?

“Now [a] 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,” he continued.

Adding, “The Riddler was like a sociopath. 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!”
