Robin Williams is Going To Be In The Next Batman or ELSE, Motherf***ers!

Robin Williams to play The Riddler?

A new Batman movie is in the works, and Robin Williams feels he’s owed a part in it. Yo’kay, Robin Williams.

Supposedly Robin was up for the role of both The Joker and The Riddler, and those roles went to Jack Nicholson and Jim Carrey. With The Riddler reappearing in the new movie, Robin thinks that this is his time to shine. The actor spoke to Empire Magazine and said, “I would do Batman in a second. 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. The Batman films have screwed me twice before: years ago they offered me The Joker and then gave it to Jack Nicholson, then they offered me The Riddler and gave it to Jim Carrey. I’d be like, ‘Ok, is this a real offer? If it is, then the answer’s yes. Don’t pump me again motherf**kers’.”

If Robin does wind up being cast, I don’t think it would be a terrible choice. Probably not the best pick (What was the last good movie he was in? I mean, forrrreal), but definitely not the worst. But still, the begging/entitlement? It’s not a good look.

  • please stop typing things such as “forrrreal”in an attempt to make yourself sound relevant – you're not.
    and your opinion on robin williams is just as irrelevant and annoying as every opinion you state.
    he is and always will be (even when he's dead) funnier and more attractive than you.
    i'm just saying GIRLFRIEEEND.

  • oh my gosh. WORLD'S GREATEST DAD. it was '09. so, so, so good. watch it & you're welcome!

  • I'm not sure if you know the meaning of the word “relevant.” How would Molls using slang either make her more relevant as a gossip blogger or less? That doesn't make sense.

  • If I were Christopher Nolin reading this article, never would I be more inspired to NOT cast Williams in the next Batman movie. Spazo needs to get over the broken dream already and stick to what he does best — seeking employment from Disney and Pixar.

  • you should check out this movie he was just in that was written and directed by bobcat goldthwait. it's called world's greatest dad and it's hilarious.

  • Williams would be great. He can do dark twisted pretty easily and I think he would fit in quite well with Christopher Nolin's style. He worked with him before on Insomnia.
