2) ‘X-Men’ Universe May Add James Franco as Multiple Man
3) Comcast Also Interested In Acquiring 21st Century Fox
4) First trailer released for Rampage starring Dwayne Johnson

6) Mail Bag
7) Live Twitter Questions
After a report broke saying that Jake Gyllenhaal was the top pick for Matt Reeves’ The Batman should Ben Affleck move on post Justice League, Collider’s own Steve Weintraub spoke to his sources claiming that he is not the front runner, rather, one of many actors that met with Reeves about the part. The source for Collider stresses that it is too early in the process and that Warner Bros doesn’t even have a short-list of actors for the role at this point.
According to THR, James Franco is in negotiations to play Multiple Man in a stand-alone X-Men spin-off movie being developed by X-Men: Dark Phoenix director and producer Simon Kinberg. The movie will center on Jamie Madrox, also known as Multiple Man, who has the mutant power to create and control duplicates of himself.
BUY OR SELL
Earlier this month, reports emerged that Disney was in preliminary talks to purchase movie and tv properties from 21st Century Fox but soon after, talks seemed to stall and we haven’t heard much since. Now, according to The Wall Street Journal, it looks as though Comcast has also expressed interest in the media company.
Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema have released the first trailer for Rampage, Dwayne Johnson‘s latest film that reteams him with his San Andreas director Brad Peyton. Inspired by the 1980s video game, Rampage stars Johnson as a primatologist who shares a close bond with George, a remarkably intelligent silverback gorilla, until a rogue genetic experiment transforms the ape into a gigantic, raging monster. Rampage also stars Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The film is slated to hit theaters on April 20, 2018.
Paramount has released the first trailer for A Quiet Place starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. The film follows a family in the woods who have to live in silence less they summon an evil threat sensitive to sound. Krasinski directs the movie as well, which has a release date set for April 6, 2018.
