Holy bizarre casting news, Batman!

Given how irate some Batman fans were by Ben Affleck getting cast as the Caped Crusader last month, we're guessing more than a few of them won't be thrilled by the latest casting rumors involving none other than Justin Bieber. 

Justin caused a bit of an uproar by posting a photo to Instagram on September 13 of himself holding the script for the new film which will feature Superman and Batman. The script has Justin's name on it in big letters, and he captioned the photo with a very provocative hashtag: "#robin ??" 

So is Justin really up for the role of Batman's sidekick, or is this just a joke? We're inclined to think the latter, given that he later tweeted, "Off to do something funny…or die," meaning the script may have been a prop for a Funny Or Die comedy sketch. And would he really be allowed to divulge casting news if he actually is in the film?

Then again, we can see Justin making a pretty good Robin. To be honest, seeing Justin in tights would never be a bad thing in our book. But what do YOU think about the casting possibility?

Perhaps all Justin really needs is a beauty and a beat cape.
