Henry Cavill OUT as Superman! NOOOOOOO

It’s not like he was amazing, but a change up at this point would just be bad.

“The DC cinematic universe appears to be losing its Man of Steel.

Henry Cavill, who has played Superman in three films, is parting ways with Warner Bros., sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Though neither side is confirming, the British actor, who first donned the blue suit for 2013’s Man of Steel, and then starred in 2016’s Batman v. Superman and last year’s Justice League, is said to be hanging up the red cape.

Warners had been trying to enlist Cavill, who most recently co-starred in Mission: Impossible — Fallout, for a Superman cameo in Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi and will bow April 5. But contract talks between Cavill’s WME reps and Warners broke down, and the door is now closing on other potential Superman appearances.

That’s because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine. This effectively removes an actor of Cavill’s age from the storyline’s equation given that Superman, aka Kal-El, would be an infant, according to DC lore.

Furthermore, Warners isn’t likely to make a solo Superman film for at least several years, according to another source. “Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors,” says a studio source. As such, Cavill will join Ben Affleck, who isn’t expected to reprise his role for director Matt Reeves’ forthcoming Batman stand-alone film, as a hero on the way out.

A Warners source says the Shazam! deal fell apart because of scheduling conflicts. And that is backed up by the fact that Cavill recently signed on to star in the Netflix series The Witcher. However, another source says that the Witcher commitment came after the Warners impasse, suggesting a change in Warners’ strategy.

“There’s a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn’t work,” says the studio insider. Another source says Warners is trying to hit a “reset” button with the DC universe, steering its ship slowly into another direction. ”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Production on Hold

Hollywood Reporter has the full scoop:

“The production of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is being put on hold for the time being as Marvel and Disney regroup on the project, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Sources say that crewmembers, which is, at this stage, a small group that was prepping for preproduction, are being dismissed and are free to look for new work.

The Marvel project was originally to have been directed by James Gunn and was to have begun principal photography in the winter, either in January or February. The project was crewing up and was to have gone into full preproduction mode in the fall.

But Gunn was let go as the director in July when old tweets were resurfaced in response to his vocal political posts. While some held out hope that the director would be given a reprieve by Disney, a mid-August meeting with Disney chairman Alan Horn closed the door on that.

One person characterized the production hold as temporary and more of a “regrouping” as Marvel and Disney look for a filmmaker to take on the third installment of a franchise that has grossed over $1.6 billion and made stars out of Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista and Zoe Saldana.”

Boba Fett Movie in the Works With James Mangold

Hollywood Reporter has the scoop!

“The hunt is on.

James Mangold is writing and will direct a Star Wars stand-alone movie centered on Boba Fett, the feared bounty hunter and fan-favorite character, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.

The reveal comes as Disney and Disney-owned Lucasfilm prepare for the release of the latest Star Wars stand-alone film, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Solo, which opens Friday, is the second movie to be spun from the main Star Wars line — Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the first — but it is the first to focus on a particular character.

Lucasfilm is developing movies on a slew of characters including Obi-Wan Kenobi, which has Stephen Daldry in negotiations to direct, although no writers are working on a script.

It was rumored that Simon Kinberg, the writer-producer behind the X-Men franchise and films such as The Martian, was working on a Boba Fett movie. While Lucasfilm and Disney won’t make any official confirmation, sources say that Mangold will co-write the script with Kinberg, who will also produce the Boba Fett project. Kinberg and Mangold are close, having worked on Logan, the X-Men spinoff that earned high praise last year. “

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is reportedly the longest Star Wars movie ever

Star Wars Star Con SDCC T-Shirt
Star Wars Star Con SDCC T-Shirt

Star Wars has always been known for putting the epic in space epic, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi will surely be no different. When coupled with the rumoured runtime, however, you’re looking at being just over two months away from feasting your eyes on the longest Star Wars movie ever. Perfection.

And a break down of the times

Star Wars: A New Hope – 121 mins
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back – 124 mins
Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi – 131 mins
Star Wars: The Phantom Menace – 133 mins
Star Wars: Attack of the Clones – 142 mins
Star Wars: The Revenge of the Sith – 140 mins
Star Wars: The Force Awakens – 135 minutes
Star Wars: Rogue One – 133 mins
Star Wars: The Last Jedi – 150 mins (unconfirmed)

So, not only would The Last Jedi be the longest Star Wars movie by a whole 8 minutes (though the interminable Attack of the Clones felt like 12 hours long, to be fair), it eclipses the original Star Wars movie by half an hour. At this rate, Star Wars 9 will be closing in on 3 hours.

ABC News has the full story.

John Boyega, who says his character Finn has a lot of scenes with Fisher’s General (formerly Princess) Leia, explains that the sendoff for the “Star Wars” icon will be “amazing.”

“We really enjoyed each other’s company,” Boyega told Travers of working with Fisher. “I was in Nigeria when we found out [about her death]. It was a strange, strange feeling. I felt like everyone in the cast went silent for a bit after that … [But] this movie, it sends her off in an amazing, amazing way.”

Fisher, 60, died last December after suffering cardiac arrest on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
