The forthcoming sequel to “Man of Steel” has been making news as of late as Ben Affleck was named as Batman, and now Justin Timberlake wants a piece of the action.

In a new interview, the “Suit & Tie” singer explained that he’s a big fan of the “Good Will Hunting” hunk and would even like his own role in the project.

“Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it. 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."

When asked if he’d consider taking on the Robin role, Justin blurted out, "Not a chance in hell. 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 was proper crazy. So if I'm gonna play crazy, I'm wanna play proper crazy. I'm ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call."
