It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a…Bieber?!

Justin Bieber gave the Internet its weekend dose of WTF?! when he posted an Instagram hinting that he could be cast in the Man of Steel sequel.

The singer uploaded the cover page of the Batman vs. Superman script with a watermark showing it had been addressed to “Bieber,” suggesting there’s some studio interest in him getting involved…somehow.

Justin captioned that image with just one word: “#Robin?”

The film has already received some backlash from fans following the announcement that Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in the sequel, but the prospect of Justin as the Boy Wonder is proving to be just way too much for the web.

One clue that this is all a hoax? Just hours before Justin tweeted that he was “Off to do something funny…or die :).”

If this ends up just being a Funny or Die video sketch, then we should know in just a few days. If not, then Batman, Superman, every DC Comic superhero, please save us.
