Jim Carrey played The Riddler in Joel Schumacher's 1995 Batman Forever movie, and now the actor says he wouldn't mind having another role in the new Batman films.
Speaking with THR, Carrey says, "I'd love to work in the new graphic-novel versions of the movie."
Carrey continues with mention he would like to work with Christopher Nolan, who is on board Batman Vs. Superman as a producer. And how about playing The Riddler again?
"I don't know about reprising the role," Carrey said. "I don't think Chris Nolan would go for that, but I'd love to work with him."
Jim Carrey was actually at one point due to work with Nolan on a film about Howard Hughes; however, it was scrapped due to Martin Scorsese's The Aviator, which came out around the same time.

A batch of Suicide Squad rumors from a reported test group have landed online.
A user on Reddit is claiming to have been a part of a recent Warner Bros. focus test group for the Suicide Squad movie.
The user states they spent an hour at Warner Bros. with a few other people. It's noted some of the stuff they were shown was still a work in progress, while some of the other stuff is said to be set in stone.
According to the user, WB first quizzed the participants on their knowledge of the Suicide Squad, with a lot of questions on the New 52 version and Harley Quinn.
The user thinks from the general conversations that took place that Harley Quinn could be the main character in the movie.
The user stated director David Ayer joined the focus group and asked if they had watched Speed. Ayer said that the plot of Speed - a blend of action with a time sensitive conflict - is what inspired the plot of the Suicide Squad movie.
Ayer is said to have asked what they enjoyed more: A serious action movie like The Raid? Or a more comedic action approach like the Jump Street movies?
Toward the end of the focus group, the participants were broken into groups of three and given a one page summary of the plot, and they were asked to describe what they liked and didn't like.
Details they were given included Harley Quinn being needed to decipher a complex series of bombs planted throughout Gotham. It's said Harley Quinn is estranged from The Joker, and her knowledge is being used to figure out where The Joker has placed the bombs.
Deathstroke is Amanda Waller's personal bodyguard, and he is placed in the Squad to oversee that they do not deviant from the mission.
It's then said the plot becomes more complex as The Joker has a far more complex goal in mind.
The user also states they were given other plot ideas which ranged from Harley Quinn being a part of the Suicide Squad and betraying them for The Joker to another involving a conspiracy with Lex Luthor working with The Joker.
The user states his impressions are positive, and that before they left, Ayer showed off some concept art, which the user describes as "some were ok." In his opinion, Boomerang and Enchantress didn't look that great. He also offered that he really liked the design of Deathstroke, and that they gave Deathstroke a "realistic, but tech-geared look," and that it's probably the best design for Deathstroke he's ever seen.
The user finishes his write-up with: "Based on what I saw, I would love to go see this movie when it releases."
"Suicide Squad" stars: Jared Leto as The Joker; Will Smith as Deadshot, Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn; Jai Courtey as playing Boomerang; Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Viola Davis is rumored as Amanda Waller, and Jesse Eisenberg is rumored to follow his Batman vs. Superman debut as Lex Luthor.
"Suicide Squad" has an August 6, 2015 release.

The latest regarding the Sony hacker group, "The Guardians of the Peace," is that the FBI has concluded North Korea was behind the attack that came about as a result of Sony's satirical comedy, The Interview, which featured a death scene involving North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
North Korea is denying the allegations and has requested a joint investigation into the matter with the United States.
The U.S., in turn, has requested the aid of China, as apparently China provides North Korean its internet service.
President Obama has also added his two cents stating Sony made the wrong decision to pull The Interview.
Sony responded by stating they're not sure what Obama is talking about as they did request the aid of the White House.
Now "The Guardians of Peace" has responded to the allegation that North Korea is behind the attack as they posted an anonymous message via Pastebin that included the following message and a link to the following video.
It's also recently become known that Sony has deleted the social networks for The Interview; however, it's been said they have not ruled out releasing the movie through video-on-demand or some sort of digital network.
Here is the message sent to various journalists:
The result of investigation by FBI is so excellent that you might have seen what we were doing with your own eyes.
We congratulate you success.
FBI is BEST in the world.

If there is one thing we definitely need more of, it's Marvel COSMIC action figures!
While the Guardians of the Galaxy movie provided us with a new batch, I'm still waiting for the Wendell Vaughn Quasar action figure set that comes with all the different Quasar costumes. Hint, hint, Hasbro!
Speaking of Guardians of the Galaxy, check out the custom action figures James Gunn received as a present from Seth Green.
It's the Ravagers!
Gunn posted the following image on Facebook adding:
Wow, I have the greatest friends ever. Last night at our annual Christmas get together Seth Green gave me a custom box of Ravagers he made himself! He noticed the world was sadly lacking Ravagers figures and had to step up. I'm blown away. Three of the four Ravagers were with us - Nick Holmes (Horuz's Mate), Dave Yarovesky (Goth Ravager), and Sean Gunn (Kraglin). Sadly, Michael Rooker (Yondu) wasn't there (but is fortunately back in town for Christmas).

Alot of us have to grown to love and appreciate Andrew Garfield as the web head. He's a been a Spider Man fan his whole life and he's been handled incorrectly by the greedy idiots at Sony and he said himself that he would love to be in an Avengers movie and why not? He such a great Peter Parker and Spider Man and he derseves to be in one and alot of us would be very disappointed to see him kicked out and replaced after just two movies. So please sign this petition and spread it to your friends and on social media. The more the better
The news of Andrew Garfield's replacement as Spider-Man came with mention Marvel wants creative control over the character, though Sony would still be involved with marketing and distribution; it's been said Marvel wants Spider-Man in Captain America 3 and The Avengers Infinity War: Part I and II; a new costume will be created, and Sony has said they want standalone Spider-Man movies in 2017 and 2019.
To date, Sony or Marvel have yet to comment on Spider-Man returning to Marvel.
