Ben Affleck was photographed in Toronto yesterday on the set of Suicide Squad. Nerd Assumption then is that Batman will be making at least a cameo in the movie. Is Ben Affleck Batman to Suicide Squad what RDJ Iron Man is to the Avengers? I’m too much of a geek neophyte to know whether or not that’s an apt analogy but for those of us who don’t have a PhD in comic books, I could be into this…especially since the Avengers seem to be behaving like Lannisters right now. Full Story

There’s a piece up today at The Daily Beast about Black Widow and the “problem” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that she—a strong, capable character in her own right—keeps being used in service of the male heroes. I don’t disagree that there is a problem in the MCU, but it isn’t specifically with Natasha Romanov. Full Story

My final blog post yesterday was about Zac Efron on the set of his new movie, doing push-ups. No big deal. Just a guy who drops down and gives you 10, spontaneously, whatever. Check him out today, walking to set, and f-ck, he didn’t have time to close his jacket because he’s so focused on getting in character, getting into position. Full Story

Tom Brady must have lost a bet to Seth MacFarlane

Back in 2012, I quite liked Ted, Seth MacFarlane’s talking teddy bear movie starring Mark Wahlberg. It hit the right balance between MacFarlane’s raunchy sense of humor and actually having a heart under the R-rated jokes and the teddy bear gimmick. So I’m holding out hope that the latest trailer for Ted 2, which is a red band, is just a bad trailer, and not indicative of the movie as a whole, because this trailer is BAD. Full Story

Spontaneous push-ups

Zac Efron is in Georgia working on a movie called Dirty Grandpa. He was photographed on set today. In between scenes, he appears to be dropping down for a set of push-ups. I mean, good for him, you know? Maximise every minute. It can be boring, sitting around in your trailer all day, waiting for them to set up the lights and block the shots. Full Story

What could go wrong?

If you were a Disney/Marvel publicist, last week probably wasn’t great. Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans were sexist (click here for a refresher). Robert Downey Jr walked out of an interview (click here Full Story

Check out Penelope Cruz this weekend in Rome on the set of Zoolander 2. Apparently she plays a cop. Like a cop who’s a hybrid of Uma Thurman in Kill Bill and Oops Britney? Whatever. She is wearing the sh-t out of that leather jumpsuit. And her hair. One of the best heads of hair in Hollywood. Full Story

For a movie that features a protagonist who boned two members of the same family, The Age of Adaline is incredibly boring. There’s so much potential drama to fuel the story of a woman who doesn’t age, and who, it is implied, has left a string of lovers spanning a century behind her, but Adaline is hell-bent on being the least interesting version of that story, more interested in presenting the titular Adaline (Blake Lively, in her first role since 2012’s Savages) as a proper lady who has weathered the century unchanging. Full Story

This week in Johnny Depp

I know I don’t have to rehash this for you, the Johnny Depp week. And how they’ve turned that around in just 5 days. From “missing” and a “mess” to, oh, he might win an Oscar. Do women ever get the same courtesy? Fine. I won’t turn this isn’t a feminist crusade. Full Story

Adam Sandler’s new movie is so offensive no one wants to be in it

Adam Sandler is making a new movie, The Ridiculous 6, which is slated to air on Netflix at some point. It’s a spoof of Westerns, the title is a play on The Magnificent Seven, and it stars Sandler as a guy who’s raised in a band of Apaches after being adopted by them as a child. It’s the kind of premise that, were it masterminded by Mel Brooks, could probably be really f*cking funny, but the minute I heard Sandler was coming for my heritage, I felt a chill. Full Story
