Justin Bieber has uploaded a photo to his instagram account of him holding what is supposed to be a copy of the script for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steelsequel with the caption “#robin??”. This, of course, unleashed speculation and both positive and negative opinions towards the pop singer and the possibility of him becoming the next Robin.
However on closer inspection, the script shown on the picture does not look official though: it says it’s based on Batman: The Dark Knight Falls, by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson, also there has been no official casting annoucement made. Also, before posting the pic, Bieber tweeted: “Off to do something funny… or die :)”.

So, do not fear, Batman and Superman fans, the picture may probably be a joke from the singer in collaboration with Funny or Die.
Choosing the pop star to become the next Robin would be an extremely controversial decision. It is also highly unlikely that the producers would want to risk anymore wrath from the fans after the reaction to Ben Affleck’s becoming the newest Caped Crusader.
The Man of Steel sequel, starring Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman, will be released on July 7th 2015.
What do you think of Bieber as Robin? Who would be your choice for the next Boy Wonder?
