    Zero Year Riddler is the best version of Riddler, IMO. I would love to get something like that in a movie sometime.

    Jim Carrey was utterly awful in the role.

    No chance. Not an actor with legitimate chops. TBH, a good portion of this fan-casting here is either highly redundant, largely out-dated, or downright silly.

    He played the version the director wanted - a 90's Frank Gorshin update.

    Yeah ... a terrible and cheap copy.

    The whole film is terrible in my view, Carrey is I agree, but he's not the worst part of the atrocity for me.

    Nic Hoult could be good. Really don't have any other fan-cast for the part though, someone tall I guess?

    Gotta say no to TV actors who could potentially make this part silly. This should be a big role with a major actor.

    He's a great actor, but he went a bit hammy on Death Note so maybe that's my big hesitation. He's great in Sorry To Bother You and Atlanta though.

    I'd love to see him play someone else, to be honest. Riddler is crazy but he portrays himself as a confident genius. I think Stanfield would be better in the role of a completely unhinged character.

    The more I think on it, the more I want Nic Hoult as Riddler

    You thought you could outsmart me? Huh? Was that it? You thought you had it all figured out? You thought you'd bring your little bag of tricks there and be prepared for anything? Hmmm? No. You weren't thinking at all. Because you can't think. Because, well, you're stupid.

    As much as I love Riddler, I always thought you could still improve upon him, give him an extra dimension we haven't seen yet. I would like an outside the box casting choice. Not for the sake of it, but someone who can bring that something extra and possibly create a definitive interpretation. I think Riddler has that in him.
