Terry Crews Has No Interest in Playing Luke Cage in a Marvel Movie

It should be one of the biggest no-brainer casting moments for the Marvel universe: Terry Crews as Luke Cage. Yet, we've had no significant movement on a Luke Cage movie (or TV show, for that matter), while rumors continue to persist about another African-American Marvel movie ('Black Panther') continue. Well, despite the obvious fancasting, Terry Crews says Luke Cage is "being ignored" at Marvel and he has no interest in playing the superhero.

J.K. Rowling Has Complete Creative Control Over the ‘Harry Potter’ Spinoff

While J.K. Rowling is one of the biggest selling (and richest) authors in the world, she has never written a movie screenplay. But, when you're the creator of the billion dollar 'Harry Potter' franchise, even a first time writer can make some creative demands.

Rowling will write the screenplay for the forthcoming 'Harry Potter' spinoff 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' and her contract with Warner Bros. stipulates that her script cannot be rewritten, doctored or polished without her explicit permission.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ – Ben Affleck Talks For the First Time About Fan Backlash to His Casting

Up until now, almost every actor in Hollywood has been asked for their reaction on Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in 'Batman vs. Superman' (as if their opinion mattered at all), when the one person we wanted to hear from - Affleck himself - has stayed completely silent.

Until now. Affleck appeared on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' last night and talked about why he wanted to star as Batman, his reaction to the internet freak out and why his radio silence wasn't an accident.

Brad Pitt on ‘World War Z 2′ – ‘We Have So Many Ideas’

If you had brought up the idea of a 'World War Z 2' to Brad Pitt and Paramount Pictures just about six months ago, they may have laughed you out of the room. The zombie movie had a famously difficult production with costly reshoots leaving many Hollywood insiders thinking 'World War Z' was going to be a massive failure. But then the film hit theaters, it turned out to be a pretty good movie and the movie has made over $200 million to date. So, who's laughing now? Certainly not Brad Pitt who says they have "so many ideas" when it comes to prepping the inevitable 'World War Z 2.'

Will Joss Whedon Kill Off One of the Avengers in ‘Avengers 2′? “Maybe…”

'Avengers' director and current Marvel Studios creative head muckity-muck Joss Whedon has a knack for killing off beloved characters. You need to look to further than 'Buffy,' Firefly,' 'Angel' and, of course, 'The Avengers' for evidence. But, as he prepares to shoot 'Avengers 2: Age of Ultron' in a few months, will Whedon take things up a notch and, gulp, kill one of the Avengers?
