What could crush the fanboy spirit harder than Ben Affleck being The Dark Knight in Man of Steel 2 (aka Batman Vs. Superman)? How about Justin Bieber starring as his sidekick Robin? Perhaps as a Friday 13th scare, and a quite good one, the controversial pop star posted an Instagram photo of himself holding the screenplay by Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer. His only hashtag:

In the UK, 20 year-old Jordan Sheard was sentenced to 3.5 years for crashing an 18-year-old autistic gay man's birthday party, writing homophobic slurs on his body, dousing him in tanning oil and setting him on fire, which led to his death. Seriously?
