Los Anbgeles: Justin Timberlake thinks Ben Affleck would make an excellent Batman but when it comes to him, the singer-actor would prefer playing caped crusader's arch enemy - the Riddler.

Timberlake, who has starred in films like 'The Social Network', 'In Time' and 'Friends with Benefit', is confident that Affleck, who has been facing the online fury of the superhero fans, would surprise with his portrayal of Bruce Wayne.

"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," Timberlake told Fresh 102.7's Jim and Kim show.

When asked whether Timberlake would want to play Robin opposite his 'Runner Runner' co-star, Timberlake said he would rather be the villain than the superhero.

"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," Timberlake said.

"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," he added.
