if you can't beat them... join them! Henry Cavill in talks to play MCU's Wolverine.



- Apparently, Henry Cavill is in talks to join the MCU.
- News come after DC apparently dropped him from playing Superman.
- For those that don't remember. Thor: Ragnarok caused Justice League to flop, which led to huge questions about Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck's time as Superman and Batman. Affleck made his retirement official a couple months ago, but there was no word about Henry Cavill. People assumed he was out when Superman made a cameo in Shazam! without his face, last month.

James Gunn Breaks Silence On High-Profile Disney Firing


James Gunn! The man who got fired and in the end received not one, but 2 franchises about misfit superheroes, speaks out, and takes something akin to......personal responsibility.

  • Knows hat people have been hurt by things he's said, it's his responsibility, and he still feels bad.

  • Was angry at himself and didn't blame Disney for firing him, and knew that he had to release some of that anger.

  • Thought his career would be torpedoed, forgot he was a white man, and got a call from studios within 2 days of his firing, one of which was WB offering him "The Suicide Squad".

  • Will probably focus more on Rocket in "Guardians 3" because that's the character he's closest too.

  • Initial conversation with Alan Horn was "Let's talk about this".

Judge orders investigation into Britney's conservatorship



The judge in Britney Spears' conservatorship case has ordered a thorough investigation of everyone on her team who take part in planning her personal life, financial affairs and medical treatment.

The Blast obtained court documents where a judge requests a thorough probe into Britney's case, and wants a court investigator’s report filed before Britney’s next hearing in September.

The singer is currently battling a lifelong conservatorship she's been under since 2008. This probe was made days after Britney was ordered to undergo an expert evaluation to determine if her conservatorship should be loosened or modified.

The investigator is to conduct extensive interviews with all the people involved in Britney's case, including guardians, conservators, and doctors. The investigator will also be reviewing medical and financial records, including custody agreements and even contractual obligations like her Las Vegas residency.

Larry Rudolph Speaks Out - "Britney May Never Perform Again"


  • In the ongoing saga that is Britney Spears and the battle over her conservatorship, her longtime manager and friend Larry Rudolph released a statement to TMZ that may shock and scare some fans ---- the legendary popstar may never perform again.

  • Larry, speaking to TMZ, said: "As the person who guides her career -- based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis -- from what I have gathered it's clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency, not in the near future and possibly never again."

  • Larry, whom has never been a part of her conservatorship, says that things are really bad right now.

  • Speaking on the cancellation of the Domination residency set to begin in February, "It was the perfect storm. We had to pull her show because her meds stopped working and she was distraught over her dad's illness."

  • Rudolph also reiterated he knows when Britney is Britney and he says he hasn't felt that in months. "Last summer, when she wanted to tour, she called me every day. She was excited. She hasn't called me in months. Crickets. She clearly doesn't want to perform now. I don't want her to work again 'till she's ready, physically, mentally and passionately. If that time never comes again it will never come again. I have no desire or ability to make her work again. I am only here for her when she wants to work. And, if she ever does want to work again, I'm here to tell her if it's a good idea or a bad idea."

Ariana Grande: Sued for Posting Photos of Herself Without Permission

Take that title in for a sec.




- Nobody paparazzi 'photographer' Robert Barbera is demanding $25k per photo or the profits she earned off those photos, whichever amount is greater.

- Court documents state that the Instagram post (which contains 2 of Barbera's photos) received over 3 million likes. The photos were also allegedly registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.

“[Grande] infringed [Barbera’s] copyright in the Photographs by reproducing and publicly displaying the Photographs on the Instagram Page,” the lawsuit states. “[Grande] is not, and has never been, licensed or otherwise authorized to reproduce, publicly display, distribute and/or use the Photographs.”


Outlets are pushing the narrative that Ariana Grande, who is notoriously strict about photo policy, is a hypocrite for posting these photos freely. OP would find it ridiculous if said photos were invasive, but they were clearly promotional and beneficial to her.

Not the post in question, but this is one of the photos she is being sued for:

At a conference at the Cannes Film Festival, she say's social media has been terrible for her generation and she believes it to be dangerous.



Transcript: “Social media has really been terrible for my generation. I understand that it's amazing to use your platform, but it does scare me when you see how exposed that these young girls and these young boys are. And they're not really aware of the news or anything going on. It's a very... it's just... I don't wanna say 'selfish' 'cause that feels rude. But I think it's dangerous, for sure. I don't think people are getting the right information sometimes.”



- On what she could do to improve the social media environment, she says it's "impossible" at this point to make it safe.

- Selena Gomez: "I'm very grateful I have the platform in any way, I can still share things I'm passionate about. I don't do a lot of pointless pictures. I like to be intentional with it."

GRRM wants you to know that books 6 & 7 have NOT been finished, thankyouverymuch.




Upon hearing the rumours about the 6th and 7th ASOIAF novels secretly being completed, GRRM decided to paused his fantasy football games for 40 seconds and rant about LiiEEsss On tHe InTweRwebZ!!!

He posted an entry on his blog called "Idiocy on the Internet" in which he stated:

I will, however, say for the record — no, THE WINDS OF WINTER and A DREAM OF SPRING are not finished. DREAM is not even begun; I am not going to start writing volume seven until I finish volume six

It seems absurd to me that I need to state this. The world is round, the Earth revolves around the sun, water is wet… do I need to say that too? It boggles me that anyone would believe this story, even for an instant. It makes not a whit of sense. Why would I sit for years on completed novels?


ETA: In Part 2, he also wants you know that HE LOVES BRONN, OKAY?!

As long as I am shooting down loony stories on the internet… there was also one that claimed I hate the character Bronn and/or the actor who portrays him, Jerome Flynn.

Total bullshit. Not a shred of truth.

Trisha Paytas remains problematic



Breakdown
- Nickovado Avocado is a Youtuber with a mukbang channel
- Trisha hit him up in 2017, wanting to collab with him, claiming that she has been a fan for years
- She made plans to do a collab with him, but ghosted him when he arrived in LA to do a collab with her
- She then deleted her replies to him so that he would look like a crazy stalker and blasted him to her followers
- Claimed she never knew him, or knew of him even thought she is the one who contacted him first
- Trashed him, trashed his weight gain and his channel, and sent her little fishies to bully him
- Bullied him for two years, while he kept quiet with receipts
- This is NOT the first time she has done it to a Youtuber, other fellow Youtubers have come out to say that she has done the same thing to them.

The main issue is not ghosting someone, but rather ghosting them, doctoring the messages to look like it was a one-sided conversation, and then bullying him online, rather than admit that she made a mistake by ghosting him.



For some reason, ONTD still supports this racist pedo-apologist trashbag.

Judge Rules that Woodstock 50's Heart Can Go On... But Will It?

- a judge has ruled that Woodstock 50 which was allegedly cancelled can continue
- however the money from Dentsu Aegis, the financier that backed out last month does not have to give back the $18 million it originally promised to Woodstock, LLC
- the judge ruled that the financier was not within its right to cancel the festival, but also ruled that Woodstock, LLC "fell very short" in proving they deserved the money back
- Woodstock has a few days to gather funding and who knows what will happen at this point? (OP thinks the organizers will start emailing the artists' teams to see if they'll give some of the money back)
