Hugh Jackman has officially decided to retire from his role of Wolverine in the X-Men movie franchise. With Sophie Turner's Dark Phoenix movie, the current era of X-Men movies is coming to an end and it looks like Marvel would like to reboot the series with the new cast and crew. There have been several names that made their way online who could replace Jackman as Logan, and now there are talks that Tom Hardy would be a nice actor to replace Jackman. Earlier this week, Dark Phoenix's director Simon Kinberg talked about his own ideas and whom he wish to see playing Logan in future mutant movies. As per the director, he cannot imagine anybody but Hugh Jackman to play such an iconic character but as per him, "actors who are just really interesting, and that I'd love to work with, Tom Hardy comes to mind; Richard Madden I think is a great actor." Tom Hardy has already debuted as Eddie Brock in Venom and chances are pretty slim that Marvel will take him to play Wolverine. Whereas, Richard … [Read more...] about Tom Hardy to replace Hugh Jackman as the new Wolverine?

By Jocelyn Noveck The Associated Press Wed., May 1, 2019 When Ted Bundy died in the electric chair 30 years ago in Florida, a witness to the execution — a prosecutor in the case of a 12-year-old girl Bundy murdered — told the New York Times: “He probably could have done anything he set his mind to do, but something happened to him and we still don’t know what it was.” Three decades later, we still don’t, and the aptly named Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, which comes to Neftlix May 3, doesn’t provide any new answers. Instead, Joe Berlinger’s film, starring an impressively scary Zac Efron, tries with mixed success to address a different issue, namely how Bundy not only used his good looks and boyish demeanour to fool those closest to him, especially his longtime girlfriend, but how he managed to seduce some in the media and public — to the point where, revoltingly, he had actual groupies at his murder … [Read more...] about A strong Efron, but little else new in Ted Bundy biopic

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Meghan McCain and other prominent conservatives turned a critical eye toward Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who has been accused by critics of anti-Semitism. “The anti-Semitic Left . . . is getting worse,” Cruz tweeted Sunday afternoon, tagging Omar and writing that she “repeated anti-Israel slurs.” He added: “Responsible Dems need to say Enough is Enough.” Hours earlier, McCain called out Omar during a discussion of the shooting on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” “When we’re having conversations about anti-Semitism, we should be looking at the most extreme on both sides,” McCain said. “I would bring up Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and some of her comments that got so much attention.” Over the weekend, … [Read more...] about Rep. Ilhan Omar responds to barbs from Ted Cruz, Meghan McCain after synagogue shooting: ‘Shame on you’
