Well, here's one for the books... after Joss Whedon confirmed that he'd be introducing the mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015's The Avengers, 20th Century Fox has moved to steal a march on Marvel Studios, with Bryan Singer revealing via Twitter that Quicksilver has been added the roster of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, American Horror Story) cast in the role.
Having featured in both the X-Men and Avengers comic books, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - the offspring of X-Men baddie Magneto - are the subject of a bizarre rights issue, whereby both Fox and Marvel Studios can use the characters as part of their respective worlds, although Marvel can't make reference to them being mutants (or Magento's kids) and Fox can't refer to them as part of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Now that writer-director Joss Whedon has confirmed sibling superheroes Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be a part of The Avengers 2, the talk has shifted to casting these roles. Actress Saoirse Ronan recently spoke about rumors that the director is using her as a "prototype" for the Scarlet Witch character. Although she has not officially been cast yet, the actress revealed she would love to take on the role.
"I have heard about it and yes, I would. Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it's very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I'd love to be in it."

Tuc Watkins is a veteran of One Life to Live and Desperate Housewives, but when he opened up last month on Marie Osmond‘s Hallmark Channel talk show about being a gay, single surrogate parent, his candor contained neither of those series’ signature melodrama. The 46-year-old actor discussed the joy and stress of fathering twins Catchen and Curtis, and now that he’s back as the nutty David Vickers on One Life to Live in its Hulu version, he has plenty to be happy and very, very stressed about.
We caught up with Watkins to discuss why he decided to come out, the challenges of being a gay actor, and why he’s so obsessed with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
TheBacklot: You opened up about single gay parenthood on Marie Osmond’s talk show. Was it strange to discuss such a personal issue with a woman you probably grew up watching on TV? »

This is how it generally works: Jay Pharoah or Jason Sudeikis screams “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” The house band kicks in, the immortal Don Pardo announces the cast. And then, the stage door opens, and a smiling celebrity walks out towards the camera. You try and gauge her body language because what you really want to know is: Is this going to be funny? It’s late on Saturday night and you just need to know whether you’re going to watch this from start to finish right now… or whether you should go to bed »

In 1994, at age 25, James Gray won the Silver Lion at the 1994 Venice Film Festival with his directorial debut Little Odessa, a film about a hit man confronted by his younger brother upon returning to his hometown. Ever since, James Gray has won over critics with every film he’s released since, including the noir, The Yards, and the cop thriller, We Own the Night which received widely divergent reviews when it played in competition at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. Now he is back with his fifth feature, The Immigrant, which also has been selected to compete for the Palme d’Or.
Oscar winner Marion Cotillard joins two Oscar nominees: Jeremy Renner and Joaquin Phoenix, a Gray regular, having also appeared in the director’s last three films. As with Gray’s last film, 2008′s Two Lovers, the director co-wrote the script with the late Ric Menello, famous for his hip-hop collaborations. »
There are only a few days left of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, but some of the biggest films are still yet to come. Tomorrow brings Alexander Payne's "Nebraska," while Saturday includes both Roman Polanski's "Venus In Fur" and Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive." And as for Friday? Well, Friday brings the return of one of Cannes' favorite filmmakers, James Gray, back with his first film since 2008's "Two Lovers" with "The Immigrant." We got our first brief glimpse of the period piece earlier in the week, and now a new, longer clip has arrived. It still features Marion Cotillard's refugee, Ewa, but rather than Jeremy Renner's magician, Orlando, she's paired up with Joaquin Phoenix's Bruno, Orlando's cousin, a seemingly friendly man who actually pushes her into prostitution. Even more so than the last, this establishes some stunning production design, and a gorgeous-sepia toned look, »

While promoting "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" earlier this year, Jeremy Renner spoke about the movie as if it was a huge mistake that he ever decided to star in it. Now that he's promoting the DVD/Blu-ray release of the film, the actor revealed that he never actually read the script before taking the role. It was something else that convinced him that an R-rated "Hansel and Gretel" movie would be a good idea. "The initial attraction to do the movie came from a little [poster] that I got before I even got the script," said Renner. "It was Hansel and Gretel walking away. There's a fire going and a witch burning in the background. He has a shotgun, and she has this crossbow. That's interesting to me. I don't know why, but it was."

Jennifer Lawrence isn't the only actor undergoing a major makeover for David O. Russell's new movie. Christian Bale looks unrecognizable following his transformation for "American Hustle," and a new image of the actor shows that he's gained a good deal of weight, grown a lot of facial hair and shaving his head completely for the film.

When Bale was last seen on the set of the upcoming historical thriller, he was sporting a comb over and a pair of red-tinted Aviator sunglasses. His latest look, which can be seen in the insert above, was snapped when he was photographed at Lax over the weekend. It seems his character has ditched his hair entirely in the film.
Bale is no stranger to dramatically altering his physique for a film role. »
Jeremy Renner was notoriously prickly while promoting “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” earlier this year, acting as if he truly hated the movie based on the classic fairy tale and wanted to distance himself as far from it as possible. Critics almost universally agreed with that sentiment, including Moviefone's, who described the film as “88 Minutes of My Life I Will Never Get Back.” So if the movie was really that bad, and Renner knew it, why did he agree to star in it in the first place? Turns out he has a reason -- though not a very good one. In an interview clip from “Hansel & Gretel”'s forthcoming DVD and Blu-ray release, Renner reveals that he never actually read the script before deciding to sign on to the project, which filmed in 2011 and was slated for a 2012 release before eventually being dumped in theaters in January.

It appears as if Bourne Legacy star Jeremy Renner was born to be a dad. In fact, even though it's only been two months since he and girlfriend Sonni Pacheco welcomed daughter Ava, the 42-year-old already looks like an old pro when it comes to being a pop. Renner could be seen easily handling his little one's car seat and stroller as the family of three did some shopping in Los Angeles on Sunday. It was a rare day off for the actor. He's been keeping pretty busy lately shooting director David O. Russell's upcoming film, American Hustle. The political thriller also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Christian Bale. »
Picking a project for Holllywood actors can come down to a single aspect, whether it's an acclaimed director or the location of the shoot. For Jeremy Renner and "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," all he needed was simple piece of concept art.
As Renner explains in this exclusive from the Blu-ray and DVD release of "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," the one-sheet image of his character and his on-screen sister convinced him that the movie was worth doing before he even saw a script.
"The initial attraction to do the movie came from a little one sheet that I got before I even got the script, and it was something that they ended up shooting in the movie. It was Hansel and Gretel walking away," Renner says. "There's a fire going and a witch burning in the background. He has a shotgun, and she has this crossbow. That's interesting to me.

Christian Bale Shaves His Head — Love It Or Loathe It?
According to IMDb, American Hustle is described as: “The 1970s-set true story of a con artist and his partner in crime, who were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians — namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey.”
