Whether you like superhero movies or not, you have to accept they are not going anywhere and are only increasing in popularity. Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame is now the highest grossing film of all time, and may soon have the chance to earn an Oscar nomination for “Best Supporting Actor” thanks to Robert Downey’s role as Tony Stark/Iron Man!

Although his Iron Man tenure propelled him to the top of Hollywood’s A-list, Robert Downey Jr. has always been humble about his recent success. Perhaps this is reason he declined the chance to pursue a Best Actor Oscar for his role in Avengers: Endgame. Regardless, it looks like Disney and Marvel have chosen to go against Downey’s wishes. Collider brings word that the studios are submitting his name for consideration at next year’s Oscars ceremony after all.

Rather than Best Actor in a Leading Role, Disney is pushing to have Downey nominated for Best Supporting Actor. What’s surprising is that Downey isn’t the only actor being submitted for consideration in this category. The studio is also launching campaigns for Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin, Paul Rudd, and Don Cheadle.

Honestly, we could have seen him nominated for the Best Actor category as well. There was a lot emotion put into his final bout as the Golden Avenger, especially when he sacrificed himself in that final scene to defeat Thanos, uttering “I am Iron Man.” It is only a matter of time before some superhero film achieves Oscar gold in one of the big categories. Black Panther  was nominated for  a number of awards at the last Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse took him an Oscar for best animated film. The clock’s ticking…

NICE! Check Out The New Trailer & Posters for “Like A Boss!”

Best friends Mia and Mel (Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne) are living their best lives running their own cosmetics company they’ve built from the ground up. Unfortunately, they’re in over their heads financially, and the prospect of a big buyout offer from a notorious titan of the cosmetics industry Claire Luna (Salma Hayek) proves too tempting to pass up, putting Mel and Mia’s lifelong friendship in jeopardy.

“Like A Boss” is definitely going to be one of the funniest and dynamic films of 2020. This cast is stellar, and the film comes off as “Girls Trip” meets “Bad Bosses!” Nevertheless, any film showing women in power and doing it big is a cause for celebration!

Who will be the DCEU’s next Superman? At this moment no one is quite sure. One thing for sure is two major actors may be vying for the part as Henry Cavill as expressed he wants to continue on as the Man of Steel, while it is being reported Michael B. Jordan has pitched a Superman movie to Warner Bros!

“The cape is in the closet,” Cavill said in Mens’ Health’s December cover story. “It’s still mine. I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honest of the character I wasn’t to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”

Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan has his own plans to become the Man of Tomorrow

 On a slightly more official note, Variety says Michael B. Jordan actually had a meeting with the studio earlier this year in which he pitched Warner Bros. on “a vision” for Superman.

Warner Bros. was presumably intrigued by whatever he had to say, but Jordan wouldn’t commit to a big superhero project because filming wouldn’t be able to happen for a few years and he has a bunch of things in the works already. Variety says there are no current Superman projects in development at Warner Bros., so we’ll most likely have to wait until Warner Bros. exhausts all of its other ongoing superhero projects before it considers this Michael B. Jordan movie.

Henry Cavill or Michael B. Jordan are great Supermen and honestly they can both coexist in the DCEU. As you may already know from the comics, there exists a multiverse where each universe has its own Superman. On another Earth, Calvin Ellis exists, he is Kryptonian and Superman (and President of The United States) but resembles a Black human. He is presumably from Vlathos Island, a place where traditionally dark-skinned Kryptonians lived. Thus, the Calvin Ellis version of the character could stand side by side with the traditional one. The two have teamed up before as well in the comics!

Six years after “Frozen” kicked up a pop-culture blizzard, the sequel to Elsa, Anna and Olaf’s adventures snowed-in the box office with an estimated $127 million debut domestically and $350.2 million worldwide, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The opening for the Walt Disney Co.’s “Frozen 2” buried several records. It’s the highest-grossing debut ever for any animated film globally. It marks a new high in the U.S. and Canada for an animated movie released outside of the summer season. And it’s the largest opening for any Walt Disney Animation Studios release.

Disney opted for the week ahead of Thanksgiving to open “Frozen 2,” meaning it will get a significant second week bump from kids out of school. The first “Frozen” opened over Thanksgiving, earning $93 million in five days and $67 million for the three-day weekend.

The original, though, quickly grew into a sensation, remaining in the top 10 at the box office for 17 weeks and ultimately grossing $1.27 billion. Propelled in part by the hit song “Let it Go,” “Frozen” begat a flurry of merchandizing, untold numbers of Elsa dresses and a Broadway musical. It won two Academy Awards, for best animated feature and original song.

Matching that total gross won’t be easy sledding, but “Frozen 2” has a head start. Cathleen Taff, distribution chief for Disney, granted there’s a “high bar” set by “Frozen,” but she’s confident of the film’s enormous appeal.

We have no doubt “Frozen 2” will be an even bigger hit than the original movie. This weekend will definitely prove that as families will pour into theaters with their kids to see the Elsa, Anna, and their friends venture into “The Great Unknown” beyond Arendelle. Be sure you catch “Frozen 2” in a theater near you this weekend and check out our review by clicking here!
