The Biebs is either the worst DC hero or the best internet troll of all time. After posting a photo to his Instagram account this morning, Bieber set the net on fire with speculation that he is somehow involved with the Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer-penned sequel to Man of Steel.
Of course, it didn’t help that Bieber captioned the photo “#robin??”
After the Batfleck fiasco, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising to learn that Snyder had offered the role of Robin to the pint-sized monkey-abuser. Not to mention that script does look pretty official; it even says the flick is based on Batman: The Dark Knight Falls, by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson.
Luckily, just a few hours before he posted the pic, Biebs tweeted:
Off to do something funny or…die :)

So if the Bat-gods are watching down on us, this is all part of an elaborate Funny or Die sketch, and we’ll be able to forget about it shortly.
Either that, or Gotham is about to get a lot Beliebier.
- Remember when Justin left that horrible message for Anne Frank?
- How about when the Pope started taking selfies?
- Or when Miley twerked on the news so you’d pay attention to it?
