Just recently, Stephen Amell talked not getting to play the Green Arrow in the DCEU, however, it seems he still has ambitions to join the big screen universe. While promoting his latest movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, he revealed that there’s a certain villain has caught his interest.
“I always get this question. I think all the superheroes are taken now. I’ll play The Riddler, okay? It’s a villain, but I like The Riddler.”
Obsessed with riddles and puzzles of all kinds, Edward Nygma a.k.a The Riddler has been primarily a Batman villain since 1948. He is currently a part of FOX’s TV series Gotham, played by Cory Micheal Smith.
The upcoming standalone Batman film, produced by Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns, has been confirmed to include a number of Batman’s adversaries, so who knows, there might be room for The Riddler as well. But with Amell already being the star of The CW’s Arrow, it is less than likely he’ll be the one who gets to play him.
