Ben Affleck might need to watch out for Justin Timberlake.

The reason? Well, J.T. wants to play the Riddler opposite Ben as Batman!

On Tuesday, Aug. 27, Justin spoke with Fresh 102.7's "Jim and Kim Show" about his "Runner Runner" costar being cast in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel. "Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it," he said. "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 when Justin was asked if he'd want to play Robin, he answered with a laugh, "Not a chance in hell," clarifying, "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," he added. "He was proper crazy. So if I'm gonna play crazy, I'm wanna play proper crazy."

"I'm ready," he said. "The Riddler. Gimme a call."
