Former ROBIN Actor Chris O'Donnell Parodies Justin Beiber

The actor who played Dick Grayson, aka Robin, in both Batman Forever and Batman And Robin has posted a pic of himself taking the piss out of that Instagram snap of Bieber which caused so much kerfuffle on the net a few days ago.

Of course Bieber's photo which caused massive mayhem on the Internet was only a joke, as Bieber was apparently doing a sketch for Funny Or Die.

@Jambion

Batman Returns was godamn high art compared to that flaming turd called BATMAN and ROBIN.



O'donnell however , was decent as Robin in Forever.

Nice!
wcwpoet - 9/18/2013, 7:45 AM
I actually liked Batman Forever but Batman & Robin was by far one of if not the worst movies ever created.

English isn't your first language, niklander, is it? You should have someone proofread your articles before you post them.

Hahahaha awesome
maninfinesuit - 9/18/2013, 8:01 AM
He was good in Batman Forever.
StrangerX - 9/18/2013, 8:07 AM
I actually didn't mind him as Robin.
SoundWave - 9/18/2013, 8:15 AM
His t-shirt is wothout nipples, that's can't be true, photoshopped t-shirt.
ScarletSpidey - 9/18/2013, 8:17 AM
Haha, go Robin!

Just putting this out there but, I like Batman Forever. Batman & Robin, however, is so bad it's hilarious.
JorEllinator - 9/18/2013, 8:34 AM
Batman Forever is better than Batman Returns and it upsets me that everyone thinks its terrible because of Batman and Robin. Chris was a better Jason Todd (pre-Red Hood) than Dick Grayson.
SpectacularJoShFest - 9/18/2013, 8:34 AM
I guess I'll be that guy but...he didn't do a bad job playing Robin...the script was horseshit but that didn't mean he did a bad job.In fact,had the script been actually good, it would have been interesting to see O'Donnell play Nightwing(well,he kinda did but...done right I mean).
Gmoney84 - 9/18/2013, 8:36 AM
I actually really like Batman Forever.
fettastic - 9/18/2013, 8:56 AM
I agree that Chris O'Donnell actually managed to make Robin interesting. I wouldn't have thought that possible previously.
WeaponX93 - 9/18/2013, 9:02 AM
Batman Forever was one of the better movies. I think BF transitioned from really dark (Batman Returns) into cartoony, however Batman and Robin took the turn way too far.

On point, Chris was a good Robin in 'Forever'

Side note: Anyone else think he looks like an older Stephen Amell? Just sayin
WeaponX93 - 9/18/2013, 9:04 AM
@nibs
didn't see your comment until now. Yeah O'Donnel could definitely play an older Green Arrow

Glad there's some support for the classic movies here.

Batman Forever was actually a pretty damn good movie, with a cast of A-list actors, some good humor and dialogue, and a decently interesting story, it was really entertaining. And while it went over the top at times--this was just movies at the time. At least it wasn't nearly as overly cheesy as the awful Batman & Robin was.

Batman Returns was brilliant though. They really committed to the universe they created, it was fantastic. Tim Burton really brought his element into it, which maybe isn't exactly suited for Batman, but for the intent of this dark film, it was perfect. The actors were great, Elfman's score was haunting when it needed to be, and considering this was one of the first superhero films, it was damn impressive. Honestly, I put it second to The Dark Knight in terms of Batman films.

Now to troll but not really cuz I'm being honest:
Batman & Robin was definitely the worst, but I'd put TDKR as 2nd worst. TDKR was the Batman & Robin equivalent of Nolan's trilogy. It was over the top, cheesy, poorly written, for something so "gritty and real" it had way too much nonsense and way too many plotholes. It almost missed the point of being a Batman movie, it just became a generic superhero story, and not a particularly good one. Also the plot was terribly predictable, or at the very least, there was nothing surprising in the slightest except for some of the absurd things that happened.

He is a good actor, the problem with his Robin in BF was that they made him too old; sorry Chris but they should've cast some one younger, some one who was still cleary a teenager.
CommanderCobra74 - 9/18/2013, 9:32 AM
I saw Batman Forever opening night back in 1995...when Robin said- "holy rusted metal, Batman!" I got up to take a leak and didn't return. "Forever" better than "Returns?" ....bahahahahaha
fattieacid - 9/18/2013, 9:36 AM
He's become such a good actor, i wouldnt mind him being in the new movies.. maybe not as robin but maybe another superhero or villain
patrat18 - 9/18/2013, 9:42 AM
He was terrible, can he even make fun of the lesbian?
WolfBladeKK - 9/18/2013, 10:05 AM
Bieber's response: Who is Chris O'Donnell?
Number1Wolverine - 9/18/2013, 10:17 AM
Awesome :).
BritishMonkey - 9/18/2013, 10:25 AM
Ha! It's funny cause he was Robin.
TheFox - 9/18/2013, 10:29 AM
Hahaha-- nice one, O'Donnell!

The guy may have been in the single worst live-action abomination of a movie to bear the Batman name, but that wasn't his fault-- he's still the only real Robin we've had. And frankly, Batman Forever wasn't even all that bad...

Cool to see the guy's got a sense of humor about it all.

@AnnoDomini but I will always say a CBM that knows its tone, however how bad, will always be better than a film that is juggling too many tones

But...don't you support Man of Steel?

IMO, Batman Forever is the second-best of the Burton/Schumacher films, after Batman '89 (of course).

Batman Returns was a spectacular dark comedy, but it wasn't really much of a Batman movie... and it was WAAAAY too dark (visually and tonally). Whereas Batman Forever managed to maintain some of the darkness of the Burton entries while bringing some fun back into the films.

It still screwed up royally by ditching the resolution to Bruce's entire character arc and by thoroughly hamming up the character of "Harvey Two-Face" (had the sixties T.V. show featured Two-Face, he woulda been a lot like this), but it also gave us a respectable take on Robin's origin and a completely wrong, but still wholly entertaining, interpretation of the Riddler (from back when Jim Carrey was still funny).

It may not hold up to the highest standards of today, but Batman Forever is still a nice little bit of fluffy popcorn entertainment.

Chris O'Donnell lol very funny.

@Levi

Batman Returns was pure sh.t

A bile spitting Penguin? a zombie Catwoman? Burton has gone on record saying that WB wanted another film by 1991 but he didn't want to do it because he had "Shot his wad" and made his statement with the first film. Burton only agreed to do another film after WB gave him total control to do his own thing without studio supervision.

The result was a Tim Burton film with Batman characters where he took the position that Batman was the least interesting thing in a Batman story.

We basically got a warmed over repeat of the first film where instead of the Joker
basically wanting to be mayor of Gotham and plotting to destroy it,we got the Penguin running for mayor and plotting to destroy it (ok that was plan B, but really)

Catwoman looked sexy as hell,but she had nothing in common with the comicbook version beyond her name. When was the comicbook version a mousey victim? Even Frank Miller's version with the sex worker background was doing things on her terms.Where was the cat burglar angle? Where's the anti-hero heart of gold side of Selina? Burton's version was a man hating, revenge crazed murderer,psycho girlfriend from hell.

Batman Forever (nips aside) presented a much more faithful depiction of Two-Face and The Riddler and a far more heroic Batman.

1. Batman Returns (up there with Nolan's Batman films for me)
2. Batman Forever (I fricking love this movie, but not as good as Returns)
3. Batman 89 (good movie, but boring as frick)
4. Batman & Robin (just pure camp and unwatchable, also I can't believe I own it on bluray)
TheMexicanSuperman - 9/18/2013, 11:03 AM
@blkyank, just because a film doesn't follow the source material it is based on 100%, it doesn't mean the film will suck.
blkyank - 9/18/2013, 11:10 AM
@MexicanSuperman

I never said Batman Returns sucked because it didn't follow the source material 100%
I said it sucked because Burton presented a Catwoman whose only relationship to the source material was her name (and a whip)
Philvis - 9/18/2013, 11:31 AM
I took the Schumacher films as camp with a bit of seriousness here and there, so I'm still not up in arms about them being the worst films ever like some state. They were campy Batman movies...nothing more, nothing less. For the time, I still think visually they brought to the table things we had yet to see with comic book movies, as far as costumes and things like that. Hate them all you like, but they were just part of the evolution of the comic book movies we see today.
SnapperCarr - 9/18/2013, 11:46 AM
Burt Ward is still the better Robin
TheFox - 9/18/2013, 11:47 AM
@blkyank: I don't get why people think Batman Returns is a warmed-over Batman '89.

The Joker wasn't running for mayor in the first Burton Batman, or even conducting a reasonable equivalent of it; the guy was actively murdering citizens and taking credit for it on television!!! Sure, he runs his little parade through the main drag of Gotham at the end of the movie, but that was a jab at the power of greed over common sense-- which ISN'T what Oswald's campaign is a satire of (the banal artifice of the media and the susceptibility of public opinion to it).

The Joker's motivation was to degrade Gotham and destroy it; the Penguin's plan was to fool Gotham into loving him... and when that failed, THEN he wanted to annihilate it. The Joker was all about causing anarchy and misery-- the Penguin, however, was either seeking approval from the people, or vengeance against them for spurning him. Those are very fundamentally different motivations.

It may not have been a great Batman film, but Batman Returns was NOT a rehash. And for what it was, it wasn't even all that bad. (Black bile notwithstanding...)
