Riddle me this, riddle me that…who is going to take on the role of the Riddler in the next Batman movie? The villain has always been one of my personal favorites in the dark knight’s rogues gallery and after actor Jim Carrey‘s (Sonic the Hedgehog and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) over the top performance I wanted a darker and more cerebral version of the villain.
If the upcoming ‘The Batman’ movie does happen to use the Riddler, it looks like actor James McAvoy (Glass and It: Chapter Two) is hoping to snag himself the role. It was during a recent Q&A on Instagram in which the actor was asked who he would like to play in the DC Universe and he replies; “The Riddler? I always liked him when I was growing up. That would be cool. I’ve always thought DC does really good bad guys.”
You know, I never really had him on my list of potential Riddlers but now after some thinking and his roles in movies such as ‘Split’. He would make a really good Riddler! What do you think? Does McAvoy has the chops for the Riddler? Who else do you want to see in the role? Let us know!
