Justin Bieber Is Robin in ‘Batman Vs. Superman’?

What could crush the fanboy spirit harder than Ben Affleck being The Dark Knight in Man of Steel 2 (aka Batman Vs. Superman)? How about Justin Bieber starring as his sidekick Robin? Perhaps as a Friday 13th scare, and a quite good one, the controversial pop star posted an Instagram photo of himself holding the screenplay by Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer. His only hashtag:

"#Robin?"

Justin Bieber Batman Vs. Superman

Now, before you get too excitable, Justin Bieber also posted this Twitter update a few hours earlier.

Since posting last night, Justin Bieber has been called out as a giant Troll, and no one believes he is actually involved in the Batman Vs. Superman movie. He's likely appearing in another Funny...Or Die skit, which he's done plenty of times before. This one focusing on the ire his casting would draw. They probably posted the photo just to get real reactions from fans to include in the sketch. Though, he would make a good Robin. The kid's not a bad actor, and he looks the part.

But, let's take into consideration this is at all real. If you look closely at the screenplay that Bieber is holding, it says the story is based on the Batman: The Dark Knight Falls graphic novel by Frank Miller and Klaus Jansen. It is the fourth chapter in The Dark Knight Returns series.

Here is the plot synopsis.

"Batman's return stimulates The Joker to awaken from a catatonic state at Arkham Asylum. With renewed purpose, The Joker manipulates his caretakers to allow him to appear on a television talk show; he murders everyone in the television studio and escapes. Batman and Robin track him to a county fair, where he has already murdered many people. Batman defeats The Joker in a violent confrontation, almost killing him. To incriminate Batman for murder and thus defeat him, The Joker snaps his own neck. After another confrontation with the Gotham police and a citywide manhunt is begun, Batman escapes.

Superman diverts a Russian nuclear warhead which detonates in a desert. The United States is hit by an electromagnetic pulse and descends into chaos during the resulting blackout. In Gotham, Batman realizes what has happened and he and Robin turn the remaining Mutants and the Sons of the Batman into a non-lethal fighting force, leading them against looters and ensuring the flow of essential supplies. In the midst of a nuclear winter, Gotham becomes the safest city in the United States. The U.S. government sees this as an embarrassment and orders Superman to remove Batman. Oliver Queen (the former Green Arrow) predicts to Wayne that the government lackey Superman and the maverick Batman will have a final confrontation. Superman demands to meet Batman. Knowing that Batman may die, Wayne symbolically chooses Crime Alley- where he first became Batman. He relies on Superman's weakness caused by his near-death in the nuclear blast.

Superman tries to reason with Batman, but Batman uses his technological inventions and mastery of hand-to-hand combat to fight him. During the battle, Superman compromises Batman's exoframe, and Queen wields a kryptonite-tipped arrow to greatly weaken Superman. Batman suddenly has a heart attack, apparently dying. Alfred Pennyworth destroys the Batcave and Wayne Manor and dies from a stroke, exposing Batman as Bruce Wayne, whose fortune is now gone. After Wayne's funeral, it is revealed that his death was staged using chemicals that can suspend his vital life signs. Clark Kent attends the funeral and winks at Robin after hearing Wayne's heartbeat as he leaves the cemetery. Sometime afterward, Bruce Wayne leads Robin, Queen, and the rest of his followers into the caverns beyond the Batcave and prepares to continue his war on crime. He plans to assemble an army to bring order back to the world."

As you can see, this story does include Robin, as well as other Justice League members, and if done right, it could lead into a film about the creation of the Justice League. But again, this is probably tacked on to add an extra layer to the joke, and get fanboys talking too, who would otherwise discount Bieber as a mere troll.

What do you think about all this? Do you want to see Bieber as Robin? Or is that another nail in this film's coffin? Will his Funny...Or Die be funny? Or did it just die a horrible death? All will be revealed soon enough. Happy Saturday the 14th.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016.

    Robin is suppose to be played as a female. Jason gets barred with a crowbar before this.

      well, they just aired Justin's "Funny or Die" sketch and it was an episode of 'Between Two Ferns' with Zach Galifanakis...

                  All I can say is this better be a FOD skit and not the real deal because if it is, it's one more reason this movie's going to suck so bad, it's gonna take down the DC Comics line with it for WB. There's a reason Nolan said no Robin and it's because Robin isn't exactly a beloved character in Batman circles for the most part.

                            True or not - he would be in breech of contract for saying anything about it and be fired on the spot.

                            I had to sign a contract once just to keep my mouth closed for a certain production until it came out. No... nothing big, just an independent film, I did a little work for once.
