The scariest thing to happen on a Friday the 13th
I will boycott the movie
They really want this movie to fail.
F–k no , this douchebags a piece of sh-t . F–k you execs , your gonna F–k this movie up.
DC is all ‘Hey check this sh-t out!’ And Marvels just sitting there, laughing
Only if Joker murders him with a crowbar in the first 5 seconds of the movie…
Because all the Affleck hate just wasn’t enough. .
Likewise on Twitter, the “Beliebers” are supporting their favorite singer:
SO HAPPY JUSTIN IS GOING TO BE ROBIN
