Eddie Redmayne wants to play The Riddler

Riddle me this, riddle me that, who’d like to crush the big, black Bat?

One of the best rogues galleries in comics is definitely Batman’s, so it’s no surprise there have been so many different incarnations through animation, games, TV and even other mediums. It only makes sense when we hear different actors wanting to play one of the Dark Knight’s foes. Add Eddie Redmayne to the list, who recently expressed interest in playing The Riddler.

Speaking to IMDb yesterday, the Fantastic Beasts star said “I’d love to play the Riddler. Just putting that out there.”

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly movies podcast, Adventures in Movies!

There’s a possibility he could get his wish, with Matt Reeves’ The Batman releasing June 25th, 2021, though that films’ villains have seemingly been confirmed.

If cast, he’d be the fourth actor to play Nygma, with Frank Gorshin (Batman), Jim Carrey (Batman Forever) and Cory Michael Smith (Gotham) having played the villain before.

Redmayne’s The Aeronauts releases December 6th, 2019.
