Neil Patrick Harris Interested In Batman’s Riddler
When Twitter account Superhero Feed reached out to actor Neil Patrick Harris about joining the ever expanding DC movies universe we don’t think this was the response they were expecting.
Harris, perhaps best known for his role on How I Met Your Mother (and his adorable family costume photos) tweeted back to the account drawing attention to his only demand if he was to take on role of Batman’s enemy, the Riddler. The actor has donned the costume before but for a family snap so we know he looks the part but would he take the role onto the big screen:

Having seen Harris perform a pretty dark and twisted character in the fourth season of American Horror Story: Freakshow, it’s not too hard to imagine him taking on the role of Edward Nigma. We’ll have to wait and see how well Ben Affleck does as Batman in the upcoming Dawn of Justice before we can comment on how the two would gel on screen!
