Michael Cera Is The Riddler

Michael Cera

 

Ben Affleck as Batman. Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Michael Cera as The Riddler. Todd as Person Not Going To See This. JoBlo reports:

After the news that Warner Bros would be making announcements soon regarding their DC Cinematic Universe comes the news that BATMAN VS SUPERMAN will not only have a foe for the Henry Cavill's Man of Steel but one for Ben Affleck's Dark Knight as well. Deadline is reporting that Michael Cera has been cast as The Riddler in Zack Snyder's superhero movie, putting him alongside Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor as the second bad guy in the film. This will mark the second big screen incarnation of The Riddler since Jim Carrey played the part in Joel Schumacher's BATMAN FOREVER. Wow. Following the same outside the box casting of Eisenberg, Cera will bring a less imposing presence as the man once known as Edward Nigma. Many may be considering this another nail in the coffin for the MAN OF STEEL sequel, but the selection of Cera could provide a much more grounded and realistic villain for the franchise.
 

If you're keeping score at home, the two villains in Batman Vs. Superman are two frail, awkward white dudes. What's their plan? To stand outside Starbucks and ask Bruce Wayne to join Greenpeace? Don't do it, Bruce. They send like five emails a day. It's pretty annoying.
