Justin Timberlake insists he has no interest in appearing in a superhero movie.

the 32-year-old has ruled out reuniting with Runner, Runner co-star Ben Affleck to play Robin in Superman vs Batman.

According to Digital Spy he said: "Something I said recently got completely misinterpreted . . . I have no desire to be any kind of superhero . . . I could never live up to those kind of standards.”

This appears to have been in reference to what he was reported as previously saying about superhero movies, when Timberlake expressed an interest in playing one of the bad guys.

“Now, a villain! I'll tell you the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funnily enough, is The Riddler. The Riddler is my favourite villain,” Timberlake said.

“The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I'm gonna play crazy, I'm wanna play proper crazy."
