Movie News Today

I hope this isn't your first destination for celebrity gossip/news. It would make me sad if that's what I was known for. But, when the news involves John Krasinski (one of my favorite actors) and Emily Blunt (one of my top 5 celebrity crushes) getting hitched, I'll pass it on.

Edward Norton is apparently out as the Hulk for the upcoming "Avengers" movie and his representation wants to make sure everyone knows this was Marvel's decision, not theirs. The truth is, Norton really never wanted to play the Hulk but couldn't pass on the money. He did an excellent job but it just wasn't his type of role. When negotiations for "The Avengers" started up, he saw a way off the Bruce Bannister bandwagon and refused to take the significant paycut it would take to bring him on. On the one hand this news is a serious bummer because Norton is a BEAST of an actor. On the other hand, he doesn't really fit in well with the ensemble thing so this is probably for the best.

Kevin Bacon is reportedly in talks to play the villain in the upcoming "X-Men: First Class" movie. In other news, no comic book film has ever done more in a week to lessen my enthusiasm for it than this one. Blah.
