Justin Bieber is Not Playing Robin in SUPERMAN VS. BATMAN

Fanboys and fangirls were filled with horror when teen pop legend Justin Bieber pulled a brilliant prank on all of us around the upcoming Zack Snyder "Man of Steel" sequel. He posted a picture on Instagram of what appeared to be the "Batman VS. Superman" script with the hashtag Robin underneath it, eluding to the fact that he was reading for the role.

That would mean Bieber would appear alongside Ben Affleck as the new "tired, weary and seasoned" Batman, as well as Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman. It's hard to imagine how ugly and intense the backlash of this decision would be had it been true, but luckily we don't have to entertain that fact any longer. The whole prank turned out to be in contingency with a "Funny or Die" skit Bieber was a part of.

While Bieber did tweet out "Off to do something funny or…die :)", prior to his Instagram photo, the potential thought was just too painful to bear for the internet, as it still exploded with speculation. It's doubtful that we'll even see a non-Bieber Robin make an appearance in the upcoming film.

Were you ever a Belieber that he could be portraying Batman's sidekick? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Superman Vs. Batman" will hit AMC Theatres on July 17th, 2015.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
