Justin Bieber posted a picture of himself to Instagram Friday night holding a script for Warner Brothers’ new “Batman vs. Superman” movie followed by the hashtag “#robin.”
Varity and The Hollywood Reporter both insist the script is a fake, pointing out that earlier in the day he announced he was off to do a project with Funny or Die, the comedy website founded by Saturday Night Live veteran Will Farrell. After the online backlash when Ben Affleck was announced as the film’s Batman, touting Beiber as Robin seems like an easy way to reignite the controversy.
According to Metro, Bieber has mentioned wanting to focus on a career in film.
“I hope to do some more acting,” he told E!. “I have only done a few things like CSI, but I really want to do some more acting.”
Bieber Instagrammed a picture of himself Saturday night hanging out with undefeated boxing champ Floyd Mayweather at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Bieber and rapper Lil Wayne both escorted Mayweather to the ring to fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
