Justin Bieber talks... Superheroes?

The multi-media teen sensation talks about who his favorite superhero is and which comic book character he'd love to play! The answers may surprise you!

Justin Bieber

While promoting his new documentary film "Never Say Never", Justin Bieber was asked by an interviewer from the website Bleeding Cool as to whether or not he'd like to pursue any more film opportunities. Sockingly, the young teen star turned the conversation to, yup, you guessed it: Superhero Movies!

"I'd love to do a comic book movie. There are so many out right now, and I think it would be super cool to be a part of that. Everyone says that I'm such a big pop culture icon, but I think superheros are really where it's at right now."

When asked who his favorite superhero was, the young singer again let out a surprising statement!

Oh my favorite definitely has to be Captain America. I know that sounds weird because I'm Canadian, but I actually love Captain America and everything he stands for.

As if that weren't enough of an eye opener, Justin even began to go in depth about why he loves the star spangled century of liberty!

"I also really relate to how he used to be this really puny guy, but at the same time ended up becoming this powerful cultural icon. It reminds me of how even though I'm young and small, I still hold alot of influence over alot of people and have to be a role model. Like, you see a small guy in the mirror, but everyone else sees this larger than life figure who has to be a hero to people all over the world. I think it's cool how, no matter how small you are or feel, you can still be a positive role model for everybody. I think everyone has a Captain America inside them."

The interviewer than went on to ask him who he'd like to play in a CBM, to which the young Mr. Bieber replied enthusiastically:

Robin "Oh Robin, definitely. I mean, first of all, you get to hang out with Batman and beat up bad guys, and then you get to ride around in the Batmobile. I'd love to see Batman's face when I play my jams in his car. I bet he'd be pretty embarrassed though and turn it off mad quick. But hey, I wouldn't mind because I'm riding in the Batmobile, so it's all good."


Wow! Who knew Justin knew his stuff! Well, as much as I like his attitude, I don't think he's quite ready to don any tights just yet, seeing as how he has little acting experience. But I greatly enjoyed listening to him say such cool things about Cap and Robin! What about you guys? What do you think?

This better be an April Fools Day joke, if not, who cares? He sucks ass.
MovieTheaterLad - 4/1/2011, 8:48 PM

How so?


I actually met him at Yankee Stadium. I don't care for his music, but he's actually a total bro in person.

But then again, anyone who likes Captain America is a bro in my book.

Holy crap! Are you on, like, all day?
MovieTheaterLad - 4/1/2011, 8:56 PM

Why not have both? The kid does look like Tim Drake when he had his bowl cut. And besides, Jesse MCCartney is voicing him on Young Justice sooooo....

Don't know about a CBM but he could certainly double for Hilary Swank!

btw i'm shocked at how modest he is!
MovieTheaterLad - 4/1/2011, 9:03 PM

He actually really is.
MovieTheaterLad - 4/1/2011, 9:08 PM

Nah. He doesn't have enough acting chops yet. If he was good enough of an actor, then sure.
JerBear - 4/1/2011, 9:16 PM
People are way to hard on the kid
LEEE777 - 4/1/2011, 9:21 PM
MOVIELAD @ Heh heh, I'm joking wiv you!

You gotta admit tho, this wannabe singer/actor is the biggest pile of sh1t to come out of Hollywood in a loooooooooooooong time!

I suppose the TWI-SH1TE crowd and lil girls love him LOL.

Batman will not only turn the music off but he will also beat Bieber to death (making an exception at his no kill rule).

"star spangled century of liberty!"

Uh, don't you mean Sentry of Liberty?

flames809 - 4/1/2011, 10:09 PM
i would give him a try every actor has a chance to play a character so why cant he do it? we have a lot of supermans and a lot of batman actors, 2 wonderwomen actors 2 spiderman actors and we going to have 3 hulk actors. dnt see nothing wrong in this, just people hating on him cause they got what he dnt got and thats talent. And lol i also wanna play robin if i become a succefull great actor one day or maybe nightwing or batman beyond.

i'm not a fan of his music but i must admit that i respect the attitude he takes when it comes to "being famous."
most times, it goes to people's heads. look at Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, etc.
granted, i get tired of hearing about him from my step sister, but if he can get serious about acting why not???

and idk why most are knocking him anyway. from that brief interview, he knows more than what the average person knows about comics. which means that he may even be a member of this site.

imagine if anyone in Hollywood was a member here?
possibilities anyone????

What a day! Between being bombarded with Star Trek gay porn and Just-a-Beeber-Doosh I can almost say I'm ready to throw the towel in at pop culture and forget my dreams of creating comics for fear of little douches like this getting their little feminine hands on it.

Cool and positive take on the characters. Predictable and lame responses.

@ darkmatter

@LEEE777: There's nothing wrong with looking forward to first class. It's just an opinion. Geez, just respect that other people have different opinions.
@ NeoBaggins and Kes: agreed.

Yeesh, he does know quite a bit.
And you Bieber haters...cut the crap. I honestly don't like a lot of his stuff (I appreciate a small handful), but to say he's gay is just wrong. So what if he sounds a little high pitched? Michael Jackson sounded sort of feminine, and he's one of THE biggest music legends period. Also, if you listen to his acoustic album he actually sounds more manly than Demi Lovato.
and while we're on the topic, I'd rather he not play Robin or anyone.
