Williams recently said he “would do Batman in a second” while adding:
“I’d play The Riddler in the next one, although it would be hard to top Heath Ledger as the villain and I’m a little hairy for tights.”
At 58-years-old Williams would be playing a slightly aged Riddler compared to the portrayal offered by Jim Carrey in the 90’s.
Williams has been offered the chance to play The Joker and The Riddler in the past, but was overlooked for the role. It can’t feel too great to be overlooked for Danny DeVito and Jim Carrey.
What do you think, could Williams play the Riddler without turning the live action movie series into another Batman & Robin stinker? If you’ve seen his darker movie roles and his turn on Law & Order: SVU you know the answer is an definitely yes!
