Jim Carrey Says He Has ‘Mixed Emotions’ Over ‘Dark’ Version of The Riddler

Jim Carrey questioned the new interpretation of the Riddler in batman.

The actor, who played an eccentric version of the villain in batmanforever 1995, said he has “mixed emotions” about playing in the new Matt Reeves movie.

Carrey admitted that he hasn’t seen the movie yet, but hinted that he had seen footage of Paul Dano’s Riddler in the blockbuster, and was indifferent to it.

Addressing the darker version of the Riddler, who is depicted in the film as a Zodiac-style serial killer, Carrey said he was concerned that the character’s actions in the film might inspire copycat behavior.

“It’s a very dark version,” he told Unilad. “I have mixed emotions about it. But then in tastes genres are broken”.

However, Carrey, who this week he assured that he is retiring from actingHe said of Dano: “I love him as an actor; he is a tremendous actor.”

“I do feel a little concerned about putting duct tape on people’s faces and encouraging people to do the same,” he said. “There are some psychopaths out there who might take that approach.”

By defending his own roles, including that of the villainous Robotnik in the new movie sonic the hedgehog 2Carrey said: “I choose my roles with a conscience. Robotnik has cartoon bombs and no one gets hurt.”

He continued, “I know there’s a place for that, and I don’t want to criticize it, but it’s not my kind of thing… it’s very well done, those kinds of movies are very well done.”

Carrey previously criticized his appearance on Kick-Ass 2 months after Sandy Hook shooting in June 2013.

He wrote on Twitter: “I did Kick-Ass 2 a month before [del evento] of Sandy Hook and now, in good conscience, I cannot stand that level of violence. My apologies to everyone else involved in the film. I am not ashamed of it, but recent events caused a change in my heart.”

Comic book writer and executive producer from Kick-Ass 2Mark Millar defended the film’s graphic content in a blog post, writing: “Like Jim, I’m appalled by real-life violence (Scottish though), but Kick Ass 2 It’s not a documentary.”

“A sequel to the movie that gave us Hit Girl was always going to involve gore and this shouldn’t have been a surprise for a guy who enjoyed the first movie so much.”

Carrey is being called a “hypocrite” for his comments about Will Smith being slapped at the Oscars. This is due to the reappearance of a video in which he forcefully kisses Alicia Silverstone, then 20 years old, at the MTV Movie Awards in 1997.
