Arrow’s Stephen Amell Would Like to Play The Riddler

Arrow star Stephen Amell has his own ideas about who he’d like to play on the big screen, opposite the Dark Knight. Amell recently discussed his desire to play a particular enigmatic villain while doing press for his role as Casey Jones in the new film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.

Amell dropped the idea (not for the first time) of playing classic Batman villain The Riddler, saying:

I always get this question. I think all the superheroes are taken now. I’ll play The Riddler, okay? It’s a villain, but I like The Riddler.

These days the Riddler can be seen on Fox’s Gotham television series, enjoying the most extreme re-write to his origin to date. This time around Edward is a Gotham City Police forensic analyst, portrayed by Cory Michael Smith. The character is obsessed with puzzles and develops an alternate personality that eventually allows him to become a full-on criminal.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is in theaters now. Arrow will return to the CW for a fifth season this Fall.
