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 see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    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.
