Oh, Bieber. Oh, no. If you were one of the frenzied Batman fans who thought Ben "Batfleck" Affleck was the worst thing that could happen to a superhero movie, well then, this one might just give you a heart attack. Brace yourselves: Justin Bieber recently Instagrammed his supposed copy of the Batman vs. Superman script, complete with a Bieber watermark and a caption reading, simply, "#robin?"
The picture itself boasts the film's title, as well as claiming to be “based on Batman: The Dark Knight Falls by Frank Miller & Klaus Janson.” For reference, the Robin in that story is Carrie Kelley — who, while having an awesome Bieber-eque sweep to her hair, is in fact, a lady.
Before you rush to your Twitter or your Tumblr, let it be known that there is a very good probability that this is a joke — let's say, 95 percent. If we all just close our eyes and wait a few hours or a few days, when we open them, we'll probably still be living in a world where Justin Bieber is not playing any beloved super characters. It's unlikely we'll wake from a fevered nightmare of Bieber in a leotard and flesh-colored tights. Right?
If you need more proof that this might be a joke, here's a very telling fact that Bieber tweeted this earlier in the day:

For your reference, here is the full version of the hype-causing selfie itself:
