Against Henry cavill's return as Superman let's find out some more Now in rather crazy and unexpected news The Rock revealed that DC Studios Weren't initially on board with bringing Back Henry Cavill as Superman now here's What he had to say in a recent Twitter Post We have to Bring back the most powerful Unstoppable Force Of all time in any universe and you guys Know who I'm talking about of course That is Superman and that's Henry Cavill Um and you know at the end of the day The studio was not bringing Henry Cavill Back they and inexplicably and uh Inexcusably but we weren't going to take No for an answer uh this has been years In the making regarding bringing Henry Cavill back Um and years of strategic conversations And we were not going to take no for an Answer now in the Twitter video he went On to say how there's new leadership at DC which implies that the reason behind The new decision in favor of Cavill Coming back is Superman went through Finally now he made a lot of points in That video stating how Henry Cavill is This generation Superman and that it'd Be impossible to kick start a new Hierarchy in the DC Universe without the Most powerful man in DC I.E Superman now

Warner Brothers could have obviously you Know just recast the role but to be Honest yes it wouldn't make any sense to Do so if we already have an actor Established in that particular role and Willing to return to portray the Character now it's rather crazy to think That there was initial pushback towards Henry Cavill returning a Superman and it Makes you wonder like what the former Leadership at DC Studios were even Thinking now with the Rock's grandiose Ideas for Black Adam having him Challenge the Man of Steel and James Gunn presiding over all of DC films and Television you know it'll be interesting To see where the DC Universe goes from Here say maybe like five to ten years From now now do you think we'll start to See a more interconnected Universe Similar to MCU is that even something That you'll want let us know about it in The comments below and let's talk about It Now in other new shifting gears to talk About the upcoming Twisted Metal series Season one will apparently be like the Movie Zombieland in nature now the Peacock series based on the classic PlayStation video game franchise Stars Anthony Mackey as an Amnesia Outsider Who has to deliver a mysterious package To an unknown destination across a Post-apocalyptic Wasteland now speaking

To us here at IGN senior producer at PlayStation Studios Carter Swann spoke About the style the team went for Pertaining to the series saying quote Zombieland's a good barometer if you Look at what happens in that movie as to What we could do their whole thing is You can have fun in the post-apocalypse So essentially the team is taking these Violent moments and making them like a Bit of a ridiculous fun romp which is Pretty cool I'm here for it and with Will Arnett confirmed as the voice for Sweet tooth you know we'll likely get a Lot of comedic zingers thrown in for Good mix now we can expect a twisted Metal series to crash into peacock 2023 And finally Harrison Ford is satisfied With the way the fifth Indiana Jones Film turned out now the team behind it Apparently did a satisfactory job this Comes to us from a new interview the Actor did with Empire where he said Quote I didn't feel it was necessary to Do another one I just thought it would Be nice to see one where Indiana Jones Was at the end of his journey but the Actor did say he put that very hat back On if but a script came along that he Felt had the potential to extend the Character's shelf life now come on man What's going on here I mean this guy is Like he's he's 80 years old Harrison Ford needs to just freaking chill out

And live off the millions he's made Decades in this career as an actor you You can rest now homie please make way For young blood my guy what are you Doing 80 for crying out loud maybe we All live to be that age and Beyond and And successful in our careers now we can Expect Indy five next year June 30th Right now Quentin Tarantino's negative Comments about superheroes saying that The actors who star in Marvel movies Aren't exactly movie stars has now Caught the attention of Jules himself Samuel L Jackson now the actor who's Worked with Tarantino on numerous Projects had some words for the director While speaking on it with Entertainment Weekly now he said quote it takes an Actor to be those particular characters And the sign of movie stardom has always Been what ashes in seats what are you Talking about that's not a big Controversy for me to know that Apparently these actors are movie stars Chadwick Boseman is Black Panther you Can't refute that and he's a movie star Oh Tarantino you in trouble now if You're not exactly caught up of what Tarantino said his initial comments it Was during this Tom Segura podcast Moment which got everyone including Samuel Jackson talking they're not movie Stars right Captain America is the star Right Thor

Is the star uh uh I mean I'm not the First person to say that I think that's Been said a zillion times you know but You know but it's like you know it's These these franchise characters that Become become come a star if an an actor Stars in a movie that does as good as The uh the Marvel movies do well that That guy's a new star sure They're an absolute star and that means That people did dig him or her yeah and They like them and they want to see them And stuff and then they you know uh Sandra Bullock is in speed Right all right and everyone like Thought she was amazing in it all right She was Charming as hell everyone fell In love with her and so you know even She does a couple of mediocre movies After that the Nets and something else Okay well people want to see it because They they were excited they want to see Her in something else and she's good in Those movies yeah you know but that's Not the case now yeah yeah it's not the Case no no we want to see that guy Playing Whoever Wolverine or whatever Huh now if you think about it Quentin And I can call him Quentin I consider Him a friend if you think about what Quentin said he kind of has a valid Point now expounding on his example Tom Holland was a young actor in Hollywood

Before he stepped into the role of Spider-Man but he definitely wasn't a Household name beforehand now I and the Majority of Marvel fans were excited When we saw that iconic moment where Tony Stark called out for Underoos and Spider-Man swung in and said hey Everyone good job now let's just be Honest here we weren't excited because It was Tom Holland we were excited Because it was Spider-Man making his First appearance in the MCU but his role As Spider-Man did in fact make him a Household name and subsequently a movie Star now Tarantino's point is actors Cast in superhero roles today have the Fortunate luxury of being tied to the Popularity of a pre-established iconic Character in pop culture that can then Catapult them into movie star artem now Back in the day before the influx of Superhero movies you didn't have that Luxury I I think that's what he's saying Exactly you know there's just an Oversaturation of superhero movies Hollywood seems to be taking interest in And not a lot of original Thought-provoking and creative movies Coming out these days now I'd argue they Still exist Daniel caluya was Particularly an unknown before get out And that particular film from Jordan Peele definitely made him a movie star With consumers blocking his theaters to

See him in various other films so it is Still possible to have these original Standalone ideas that can subsequently Launch the careers of movie stars Because the majority of people went to See get out because it was Jordan Peele's directorial debut and Daniel Caluya's acting from what we garnered From the trailers and the critical Reviews was something worth watching now I personally understand the whole Marvelization of Hollywood Tarantino was Talking about and putting myself in the Shoes of a Marvel fan I am a Marvel fan I didn't see the Spider-Man movies Because of Tom Holland I didn't see the Hulk movies because of Edward Norton or Eric Bana I went to see those films Because I grew up watching them in Cartoons and reading about them in the Comics the actors were really just Ancillary now I think Samuel L Jackson Misinterpreted what Tarantino was saying He never said actors like the late Chadwick Boseman aren't movie stars but The fans were more interested in seeing Black panther than the actor portraying The Marvel character now his powerful Portrayal of the character black panther T'challa is what made Bozeman a Household name and made him a movie star And even now with his untimely death Marvel fans are still rallying for the MCU to eventually eventually recast the

Role of t'challa and it seems that'll Likely happen at some point in the MCU Given what's witnessed in wakanda Forever but you know what those are just My thoughts I'm curious to know which Side of the fence you sit on with this One do you agree with Tarantino on the Whole marvelization of Hollywood with These Marvel Superheroes essentially Turning actors into movie stars now I Want y'all to keep in mind Chris Evans Was the Human Torch at one point but it Took him becoming the PowerHouse the AAA Superhero Captain America to really make Him rise to movie stardom anyway let us Know your thoughts down below now in Other news Disney is ramping up its Anime production by expanding its Partnership with kodansha now this comes To us by way of an exclusive from Hollywood Reporter now kodansha is Responsible for producing several manga And the expanded Disney partnership will Kick off with production of Tokyo Revengers Christmas Showdown Arc coming To Disney Plus in January of 2023.
