Securing a role as a DCEU or MCU villain is a pretty big career goal right now in Hollywood, especially given the potential of being brought back for multiple movies. While Jim Carrey has previously played the Riddler in, the actor is reportedly keen to appear in one of the two main comic book franchises as according to our sources – the same ones who told us in The Mandalorian season 2 and a – Carrey wants to portray an antagonist in a DC or Marvel film, and given his track record, we certainly see this as a logical choice.
We heard a month or so ago that Carrey might havewith Marvel Studios about a future project, having enjoyed recent box office success as Dr. Robotnik in . And on the DC side, that the 59-year-old is being considered to play an older version of the Clown Prince of Crime in the rumored expansion of the world of .
Indeed, it seems that Carrey is circling around several other high-profile movies at the moment, includingto his 1990s hits in and the series. When he previously appeared as the Riddler in 1995’s Batman Forever, it was in the middle of a prolific run of box office winners, and his manic turn as Edward Nygma is certainly one of the more memorable in Joel Schumacher’s cartoonish spin on the Dark Knight.
