Ben Affleck being chosen as the new Batman for the "Man of Steel" sequel was something that turned the world upside-down. Now, there may be something that has all the doubters forgetting about that selection, and it has to do with a pop star. Justin Bieber took to Instagram, and according to the USA Today on Sept. 14, 2013, posted a pic of himself with a "Batman Vs. Superman" script.
Bieber posted the pic to Instagram showing him hold what appears to be a script for the film and a "Bieber" watermark across the front of it. A caption for the pic simply said:
With this revelation, the world has been sent into another tizzy like no-one could possibly believe. Some were calling for Warner Bros. to be strung up while the photo was also "Liked" by close to 350,000 people in four hours.
Hold on to your horses, fans. There are a few things pointing in the direction of this being a hoax, a phony, and not what it appears to be from Bieber.
Earlier in the day, Bieber had tweeted earlier that he was "Off to do something funny...or die :)" which would make it seem that the singer was going to work with comedy group, Funny or Die. The so-called script could have something to do with that.
Another thing is that "Batman Vs. Superman" is still the working title for the film. While it has been rumored and had many signs pointing that it will be called that; Warner Bros. has not officially confirmed it. Do you really think they'd allow the official reveal of the title to come via Instagram?
Finally, the script says that it is based on "Batman: The Dark Knight Falls."
This is the fourth issue of Frank Miller's 1986 comic book series, "The Dark Knight Returns." At the Comic-Con announcement, director Zack Snyder confirmed the film would not be an adaptation of "The Dark Knight Returns."
The film is set to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
