Hollywood news banter: Charlotte’s web

Hosted by
  • We’ve all read about the celebrities caught up in the college admissions scandal, but there are big, behind-the-scenes people involved as well, including investor Bill McGlashan, who has been fired from TPG.
  • Following revelations that Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara had been previously carrying on an affair with young actress Charlotte Kirk, who was hoping to get roles on Warner Bros. movie, we’ve now learned that the scandal involves even more people and projects, including Avi Lerner and the upcoming ‘Hellboy’ remake. 
  • Despite the haters and trolls who tried to bring it down, ‘Captain Marvel’ was a huge box office success. Now, Marvel has announced they’ll do a movie featuring an Asian American superhero. Embracing audiences who have not previously seen themselves reflected in these kinds of roles has proved a winning strategy for them.
