Justin Bieber up for a role in the upcoming Batman Vs Superman?

Justin Bieber with Batman vs Superman ScriptUPDATE – According to The Wrap, someone with “knowledge of the real script” has confirmed that the script Justin Bieber has is not real. The original article follows below. 


After the commotion that Ben Affleck would be starring as Batman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman Vs Superman movie, there now comes the news that he may have his sidekick Robin… played by Justin Bieber.

Friday the 13th saw Justin Bieber post a picture of himself on Instagram with a Bieber watermarked Batman Vs Superman script, as well as the hashtag “#robin ??” As you can imagine, the reaction to this has been all over the place.

However, before posting the picture he tweeted, “Off to do something funny… or die” with Bieber filming a Funny or Die sketch later that day. It has led many to believe (and pray) that the script he took a picture of is probably a fake prop for his role in the sketch.

Bieber has admitted that he is a Batman fan. Could it be that Warner Bros. are looking to capitalise on his popularity by having him star in their upcoming film?

From the picture we can see that the script is written by David S. Goyer and Zack Snyder. It also says, “Based on Batman: The Dark Knight Falls by Frank Miller & Klaus Janson”. In that story Robin is in fact a young girl named Carrie Kelly. Days earlier Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara had revealed that Affleck’s Batman in the film will be “tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile,” which sounds very close to the Batman depicted in Miller’s miniseries.

Adding to the theory that this might be a fake, the last press release from Warner about the film was that it would be shooting in Detriot, Michigan. That was released on August 29 and noted that Snyder and Goyer were still “writing” the screenplay. At the bottom of the script Bieber has, we can see that it says, “REVISED August 30”.

What are your thoughts? Do you think what Bieber has in his possession is a legitimate script, or do you think he’s playing an almighty prank?
