Animated Spider-Man cast

Amid all the hubbub about Phil Lord and Chris Miller leaving the Han Solo movie, I’d completely forgotten that they were involved with an animated Spider-Man film across town at Sony Pictures Animation. That project just scored a couple of solid additions to its voice cast, as Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) and actor Brian Tyree Henry (who plays rapper Paper Boi on Donald Glover’s FX series Atlanta) have officially come on board. Read more about the animated Spider-Man cast below.

Avatar sequels

A former Game of Thrones actress has booked a ticket from Westeros to Pandora. Oona Chaplin, who played Robb Stark’s wife Talisa on the HBO fantasy series, will join Sam Worthington (remember him?), Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Joel David Moore, and Cliff Curtis in James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar sequels. Either that, or this is just the latest development in Cameron’s ongoing, elaborate prank to convince the world that these sequels are really happening, and we’re all being Punk’d like crazy. Those are clearly the only two options here.

sorry to bother you

You probably didn’t notice back in 2014, but Tessa Thompson and LaKeith Stanfield both starred in Selma. And in the years since, both of their careers have taken off (though arguably, Thompson has been killing it since her Veronica Mars years) with Thompson making waves in Dear White People, Creed, and now the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, and Stanfield stealing the show in Atlanta.

Now, the two of them will be reuniting and joined by The Walking Dead and Okja‘s Steven Yeun  another actor who deserves to get his due to star in the drama Sorry to Bother You.

X-Men Dark Phoenix

Longtime X-Men movie series writer/producer Simon Kinberg has been eyed as a potential director of the upcoming sequel X-Men: Dark Phoenix since February, but now it’s official: 20th Century Fox has hired him to helm the follow-up to X-Men: Apocalypse. Not only that, but Kinberg managed to pull off a casting coup: stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor Xavier), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) are all coming back to reprise their superhero roles. And if that weren’t enough, Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain is also in talks to sign on in a key role.

Aladdin Rumor: Tom Hardy as Jafar?

You’d think after the uproar that arises over every whitewashing debacle — Ghost in the Shell, Aloha, Pan, Exodus: Gods and Kings, The Last Airbender, and more that I could list but it would take approximately 10 years to do so — Hollywood would stop doing it. Or at least, stop and think, “Hey, maybe this is a bad idea.” But no, producers and directors keep going back to the age-old “the white actor is the default” adage, even if the source material calls for the exact opposite.

To be fair, I may be working myself up into a frenzy over a rumor that will never come to fruition. The rumor is pretty heinous though: Guy Ritchie, who will be adapting Disney’s live-action version of Aladdin, wants to cast Tom Hardy as the movie’s villain, Jafar.

But there’s some bad news for those hoping the new movie would feature the best part of the original. Now we know that Julie Andrews, the woman who made P.L. Travers’ beloved nanny a cinematic icon, won’t be appearing in the new movie.
