(Video) Dave Franco discusses The Riddler, Nightwing at CinemaCon

written by Neide XXXI.III

Dave Franco has become a busy man in Hollywood. He has two films set to release this year, with three more in post-production. If he — and perhaps the fans — have their way, he will lend his voice as well as acting chops to two more, major productions.

ComicBook was able to catch up with the actor on the red carpet of CinemaCon in Las Vegas to discuss The LEGO NINJAGO Movie as well as the dreamcasting for others.

Franco was quick to welcome a return to Young Justice. In November, Season 3 was confirmed for a reboot and many fans are clamoring for him to reprise the role of Edward Nygma/The Riddler when it comes back. Franco, was open to a return, though nothing seemed to be ready to go. “Only if you beg for it,” he told ComicBook. “No one is knocking on my door, but you tell them and I am there.”

If his role isn’t reprised on the animated film, there is another DC project that would be a tremendous fit for the young actor: Nightwing. The Nightwing film, which does not yet have a release date or window, joins the long line of films slated from Warner Bros. and DC Films.

Franco said that with the expansion of the comic-based film industry, combined with the success of so many of the franchises, he would be honored to be part of the landscape — even if he has yet to be invited.

“Absolutely,” he said. “Again, it is one of these things that they can literally go to anybody, but I’m here if they want me.”
