Justin Timberlake is among the millions of people voicing excitement over the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie starring Ben Affleck, and even wants to appear in it.

The "Mirror" singer expressed an interest in starring in the "Man of Steel" sequel, citing his affinity for the infamous villain, the Riddler.

When asked about possibly portraying Batman's sidekick, Robin, Timberlake immediately ruled out the option.

"Not a chance in hell," he told E! News. "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 is the Riddler."

Timberlake went on describe his favorite villain as "proper crazy."

"The Riddler was a sociopath," he explained. "So if I'm gonna play crazy, I wanna play proper crazy. I'm ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call."

The latest "Man of Steel" sequel, which is slated for 2015, will bring Batman and Superman together, with "Man of Steel" star Henry Cavill reprising his role.

Reactions to Affleck's role in the film varied from positive to negative as the news swept social media sites last week, and Timberlake was among them. The singer was in full support of 41-year-old Affleck's superhero skills.

"Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it," Timberlake told E!

The actor has also received support for the role from his longtime friend Matt Damon as well as upcoming film's director Zack Snyder.

"[Affleck] has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne," The "Man of Steel" director told CBS News. "I can't wait to work with him."

The new film will also star Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
