Could Justin Bieber Be Next 'Batman vs. Superman' Star?

And you thought people were mad about the casting of Ben Affleck?

Justin Bieber set the Internet into a tailspin recently when he Instagrammed a mirror selfie with a script for what is turning out to be one of the most talked about (at least as far as casting) films in years: Batman vs. Superman.

The script Biebs is holding in the pic accurately lists the writers for the film— David S. Goyer and Zack Snyder. And it features a "Bieber" watermark, suggesting that the script was meant for Justin's eyes only.

The pic has already picked up more than 770k likes and a bazillion comments—which are all delightfully ridiculous and we strongly suggest you forgo an hour of your life to revel in their glory

Most people seem to be under the impression that our fair-haired hero will be playing Robin. 

Because he's young and dreamy? Or because he's so good at crotch rubbing other people's cellphones? We're not completely sure.

It should be noted, however, that not long after the Instagram, Justin took to Twitter to announce:

So, yeah, the possibility that JB just trolled all of us is very real.

But if the Biebs will indeed be donning a skintight red and green suit, we can see where the producers are coming from. 

One billion Belieber's would bankroll the flick in a heartbeat—and make up for all the angry peeps signing petitions and threatening to boycott over the Ben Affleck casting.
