Eddie Redmayne says he’d like to play The Riddler on film of the chance ever comes along. IMDB has video of Redmayne and other actors being asked what iconic villains they’d like to play. While most said options outside of the comic book arena, Redmayne zeroed in on the Batvillain, saying, “I’d love to play the Riddler. Just putting that out there.”
DC has been expanding their film slate in new ways after pulling back on their Justice League-style plans, and several are taking place in the environs of Gotham. So while he’s unlikely to appear in Birds of Prey, and perhaps not even Matt Reeves’ The Batman, there’s always the chance he could get the opportunity.
