Now that we’ve found our new Batman in Ben Affleck for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, have we found our Robin in Justin Bieber? Not exactly, but some gullible fans probably think so!
On Friday afternoon, the popstar took to Instagram to post a photo of himself with what looks like a script from the upcoming sequel being dubbed right now as Batman vs Superman. The script front page features Bieber’s name stamped on it along with writing credits from Zack Snyder & David Goyer and the photo sent diehard Batman/Superman fans into a tizzy. If they thought Affleck as Batman was bad, they were definitely not happy about this rumored casting news.
Well, everyone can rest easy because for one, if Bieber played Robin, the age gap between Batman and Robin would just be ridiculous. Second, earlier that day Bieber wrote on twitter that he was filming a new sketch for Funny or Die.
Off to do something funny or…die 🙂

So rest easy comic fans, Bieber was just filming a new sketch comedy video which we have a feeling could turn out pretty funny. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Speaking of Robin, though, do you think he’ll appear in the Man of Steel follow up? If so, who would you cast in the role?
