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 can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.
