Jim Carrey’s Riddler Faces Off Against The Batman In Trailer Mash-Up

Did I ever tell you about the time I got a hug from Jim Carrey?

If I haven’t, personally, told you, there’s a chance you still know because I shout it from the rooftops at least once every eight milliseconds.

Oh. Screw it. I don’t care anymore – I’m going to post it again. Look.

Now that I’ve got my mandatory mention of my sweet, tender embrace with Jim out of the way, I can talk about something else I saw on Twitter involving the The Mask actor.

Images of Paul Dano’s Riddler surfaced, dividing fans of the look, with some questioning why Matt Reeves’ version looks nothing like the original comic book version. I, on the other hand, love it. (Mainly because this town isn’t big enough for two eccentric dressers.)

Comedian and filmmaker, Matthew Highton, did the God’s work, and brilliantly edited Jim Carrey’s Riddler, from 1995’s Batman Forever, into the trailer to take on Robert Pattinson’s Batman. I would pay my whole lifesavings to watch that. (I doubt Tommy Lee Jones would be as keen, though.)

In this edit, Robert’s dark, mysterious brooding looks – quite frankly – a bit lame when he’s taking on a man in tight green Lycra with dodgy CGI, but it’s incredible how camp it is. And to think, R-Patz’s career got camper than when he sparkled in a forest.

If Spider-Man can introduce a Multiverse, so can Batman.
