Robin?


Tired of being all ticked off over Ben Affleck being cast as the new Batman?

Wait until you hear about Robin.

If you're to believe what was posted up on the Instagram, it might just be ... Justin Bieber.

Seriously.

I'm not sure what to think. I mean, isn't he ... Canadian?

A Canadian Robin? Wouldn't that be like having a Canadian Captain Kirk?

But, what do you think? With Ben Affleck as the new Batman, who would be a good Robin?

  1. Matt Damon was born for the role of Affleck's sidekick.

  4. If he is Robin I hope that he will be the Jason Todd one.

  5. To protect the franchise, it must be Jennifer Lopez, because that would guarantee that no one will watch it.

  6. Duh...Joe Biden. With all those snappy witticisms he's always throwing out, he's a natural for a plucky, comic relief sidekick.

  7. but he'd incessantly keep telling batman he doesn't need a Batmobile, just a double barreled shotgun.

  8. It's too bad that Marty Feldman is no longer around. Picture Robin saying, "Walk this way."

  9. Can they get Sandra Fluke to play "Batslut"?

  10. Jerry Mathers. Not the young Beaver version, but Jerry Mathers today.

  11. Milhouse would make a perfect Fallout Boy.

  12. Whoever the get for Robin he will have to be gay. Only way it works these days. Of course that probably just leads us back to Matt Damon.

  13. With Ben as Batman, it's too bad Divine is dead.



    He/She would have been a perfect Robin for him.

  14. Michael Cera. Oh...never mind! He's Canadian, too! I do see a pattern here, however. Ryan Reynolds is Canadian also, so they hired him to play Green Lantern. Just look how that movie turned out. When it comes to movies, DC is no Marvel. Dark Horse Comics has resurrected Captain Midnight. I'm happy.

  15. Since Ben Affleck is rolling hard behind his directing juice why not let him do what he did in Gone, Baby, Gone and hire his kid bro Casey? Twice the Affleckery in an unprecedented approach to the Batmanic story...lack of nuanced thespic/dramatic skill aside...how much worse could this run at the franchise get?



    Find the Twitter account and Facebook page for whoever is producing and directing this thing and blow it up calling for Casey Affleck as Robin



    It's that or they call in Peter Dinklage for the role.

  16. I said it before, the original Batman TV show was a comedy, they are just going back to the original Batman theme. At last.

    I actually look forward to seeing Robin saying "Holey (insert some random noun) Batman!", and maybe Batman running across the boardwalk carrying a big old timey villain bomb. Or maybe have a giant clam be one of the perils the dynamic duo have to face.

    Or maybe they can have Snidely Whiplash or Boris Badenov as the main villains this time. Whoops, that's from something else.

  17. I think it should be Lena Dunham. Because, isn't America ready for a "transgendering" Robin? He/She would ensure that half-a-dozen people would pay to see this awful spectacle.

  18. Pee Wee Herman as Robin or



    Conan O'Brian



    Spike Lee



    I know the best actor for Robin, Jack Nicholson. That choice would definitely be going in the same direction as their choice for Batman.

  19. OO! I know! Seth Green!



    He's the right size, anyway...

  20. To make it extra creepy, (and accurate to the comic book scenario) Robin should be played by a 12-14 year old orphan boy.
