Robin Williams has recently spoken to Empire [via MusicRooms.net] about his desire in playing a role in Christopher Nolan's Batman Sequel, scheduled for a July 20, 2012 release. Williams, who starred in Nolan's 2002 release Insomnia, said: "I would do Batman in a second, playing anyone, I'd play The Riddler in the next one, although it would be hard to top Heath as the villain and I'm a little hairy for tights..."
The actor adores the comic film franchise, and would agree to star in the next one without even seeing the script. Robin has a disappointing history with the Batman series. He was offered parts in two previous films, only to have them given to other stars at the last minute. Despite this, he would still love to star in any future installments. "The Batman films have screwed me twice before: years ago they offered my 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 motherf**kers,"
