The Bellas tease another aca-sequel. Get ready for Pitch Perfect 4.

Pitch Perfect 3 is the second-highest-grossing musical comedy of all time. The highest-grossing is Pitch Perfect 2. And the first one did pretty well too.

Another sequel was obviously going to happen sooner or later, and it looks like Rebel Wilson has just confirmed it with a not-so-cryptic Instagram post.

Sharing a selfie with co-stars Anna Camp, Brittany Snow and Chrissie Fit, Wilson shows the four girls posing with four fingers held up, above a caption with four hearts in it.

Ruby Rose Exits Twitter After ‘Batwoman’ Casting Backlash, Says Fans Calling Her the Wrong Lesbian for the Role Is ‘Ridiculous’
The CW announced August 7 that Ruby Rose, the Australian actress best known for her breakout role on “Orange is the New Black,” would be leading its upcoming “Batwoman” television series in the title role, but not every fan of the comic book superhero was thrilled with the casting announcement. Angry “Batwoman” fans took to social media in the days following Rose’s hiring to slam the decision by using the hashtag #RecastBatwoman. Fans complained that Rose was the wrong LGBTQ actor to play the superhero and noted that, unlike the character in the comics, Rose is not Jewish.

Rose, currently starring on the big screen in “The Meg,” responded to the backlash by removing herself from Twitter. Rose deleted her Twitter account after sending out one final message to her followers (via Vulture): “I am looking forward to getting more than four hours of sleep and to break from

Ruby Rose Quits Twitter Following Trolling Over ‘Batwoman’ Casting
Ruby Rose has become the latest actor to abandon a social media account due to online trolling. The Australian actress, who co-stars with Jason Statham in this weekend’s global box office champ “The Meg,” quit Twitter and deactivated public comments on her Instagram account over the weekend following social media backlash against her casting as “Batwoman” in The CW’s “Arrowverse,” which was announced last week.

The openly gay actor faced a range of criticism over her casting as the character, reintroduced by DC Comics in 2006 as a lesbian of Jewish descent. Some of that criticism focused on Rose not being Jewish, but the comments that appear to have caused her to leave Twitter were those suggesting she wasn’t the right actress to play a lesbian superhero.

Before deleting her Twitter account, Rose posted a series of tweets addressing the issue, which she described as “the funniest most
