Time folds in upon itself, and Robin Williams expresses interest in playing The Riddler

In an interview with Empire, Robin Williams paused from doing an impersonation of Tony Hayward as Elmer Fudd or whatever long enough to campaign for a part in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman film, saying he’d “do anything” for his former Insomnia director—from playing “some weird little man in the background in Arkham Asylum” to taking on the role of The Riddler. Of course, Williams acknowledged that he’s “a little hairy for tights,” while also pointing out that he’s used to being jilted by Batman: “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, motherfuckers'." (Considering the clocks didn’t magically reset themselves to 1989 last night, we wouldn’t worry about it.)
