Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Henry Cavill Wayne Manor

Remember when it was reported that Henry Cavill departed from the role of Superman after talks between WB and Cavill’s WME reps for a Shazam! cameo fell through? Well, that appears to have been an over exaggeration. At least, that’s what Aquaman star Jason Momoa is saying. The actor, who played the King of Atlantis alongside the Man of Steel in last year’s Justice League, says Cavill is not giving up the role.

So what about those reports that Warner Bros. is not only not moving forward with any new Superman projects but instead making Supergirl a high priority? More on all of that below.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Widow Scarlett Johansson

This week, a new study showed that female-led films have outperformed male films at the box office, proving that there are audiences who are interested in seeing female characters at the lead. The number of female directors taking the helm of films has increased as well, with many of them going behind the camera for a variety of genres. However, it looks like there are some studios who do not have faith in some female directors.

Zama director Lucrecia Martel, who was among the frontrunners to direct the Black Widow currently being developed, reveals why she turned down Marvel Studios’ long-awaited standalone film. In a new interview, she says she turned down the project because she learned that she would not be overseeing the action scenes. More on the report, below.

Marvel's The Defenders

The wave of Marvel shows being canceled by Netflix was alarming but not surprising, especially since Disney is launching their own streaming service, Disney+, in 2019.

Most believed that Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and presumably The Punisher and Jessica Jones would just migrate over to their new home. Which makes sense. They would join the Scarlet Witch, Loki, Winter Soldier, and Falcon shows that are being launched. However, there is a clause that prevents these shows from appearing on Disney+ until 2020. More on the report, below.

BlacKkKlansman

The Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG) recognizes the best performances in both film an television. It is often seen as a predictor of who will be nominated for the top acting honors for the Oscars and Emmys, with actors and actresses voting on who wins these awards.

It comes as no surprise that Rami Malek and Christian Bale have earned themselves honors for their performances in Bohemian Rhapsody and Vice, respectively. Emily Blunt and Lady Gaga are also being recognized with nominations for their performances in Mary Poppins Returns and A Star Is Born. Blunt also earned a supporting nod for her performance in A Quiet Place. Some of the more popular films like Crazy Rich Asians and Black Panther didn’t get as many individual noms, but their collective efforts are being recognized for Outstanding Performance by a Cast.

As for the TV side of things, Atlanta, Barry, GLOW, The Kominsky Method, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have earned nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, while The Americans, Better Call Saul, This Is Us and Ozark took home nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
