With production underway and its female stars already cast, Ocean’s Eight has been spending the last few weeks rounding out the supporting cast with actors like Damian Lewis (Billions, Homeland) and James Corden (The Late Late Show, Into the Woods).

There are honorable mentions all over the place, often just missing the 10th spot – I like to characterize them as all tied for eleventh. My favorite superhero film was “Captain America: Civil War,” for the Marvel Comics angst that works best in this genre of movies.
