Michael Keaton Joins ‘Spiderman: The Homecoming’ Cast

Film veteran Michael Keaton has joined the cast of Spider-Man: The Homecoming.

It has been confirmed that Keaton, who starred as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Tim Burton’s 1989 take on DC Comic’s Batman, will play the role of the villain, The Vulture. The character first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man Issue #2, released in 1963. The Vulture, whose real name is Adrian Toomes, was the victim of a crime. He had previously developed a suit that allowed him to fly. Toomes became distraught and bitter following the incident and used the suit to develop an alter-ego.

The film will co-star Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. Robert Downey Jr. will revise his role as Tony Stark/Iron Man. The movie was written by John Francis Daley and Johnathon M. Goldstein, with writing credits to include Spider-Man creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

Spider-Man: The Homecoming is set to hit theaters July 2017.

Kesha to Perform at 2016 Billboard Music Awards

Kesha, formerly stylized as Ke$ha, has received permission from Kemosabe Records to perform at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

The performance comes as a small defeat for the singer who has been locked in her contract with Kemosabe Records to work with producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, following allegations of rape and mental cruelty.

The “Tik Tok” singer was signed to Gottwald’s Kemosabe Record label in 2005 when she was just 18 years old. Kesha filed a lawsuit against the producer in 2014, alleging that he had drugged and raped her, as well as violated a multitude of business practices during their 10-year partnership.

Kesha sought to be released from her contract with the company, following the recording of her 2012 sophomore album. New York Judge Shirley Kornreich dismissed Kesha’s claims against Gottwald and Kemosabe Records.

The singer was originally scheduled to perform at the Billboard Music Awards ceremony, but sources alerted the record label that Kesha intended to use the performance as a platform to discuss her accusations against Gottwald.

“Once we received reassurance from not only Kesha, but from Dick Clark Productions as well, that Kesha would not discuss the lawsuit or allegations, we reversed our decision,” a representative from Kemosabe said.

Kesha cleared the air using her Twitter account.

“I am going to cover a song by one of my favorite singers, Bob Dylan,” she wrote. “I was never going to discuss my issues with Dr. Luke.”

The 2016 Billboard Music Awards will be held Sunday, May 22.

The Television Networks Promote New Series

Earlier this week, representatives from leading broadcast television networks appeared in a press conference to promote upcoming new television series slated for release this fall. Reportedly, comedies based around family themes will predominate on the schedule.

ABC will present two nights with two solid hours of sitcoms, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. CBS plans to broadcast two hours of comedy fare on Mondays, and NBC also announced plans to develop some new sitcoms. Many of the upcoming series won’t premiere until the middle of the fall season.

One of ABC’s new offerings, Speechless, will present a half hour comedy based around a family with a special needs child. The show stars Minnie Driver. ABC will also introduce a comedy about a woman with a talking dog, starring Allison Tolman. Downward Dog premieres in the middle of the season.

Kevin James, who previously starred in King of Queens, appears in a new sitcom on CBS entitled Kevin Can Wait. Matt LeBlanc, previously on Friends, will lead the cast in Man With a Plan. CBS will also present some NFL games on Mondays and Thursdays during the fall, possibly resulting in some temporary schedule shuffling.

All of the networks plan to debut some new dramas also, and remakes also populate the new lineup heavily. A reprise of MacGyver joins several series based on successful films. Dana Walden announced that 90% of the upcoming season on FOX involves first-run programs.

Sean Penn’s ‘The Last Face’ Booed at Cannes

Viewers and critics alive have savaged Sean Penn’s latest directorial venture, “The Last Face,” at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

The film stars Charlize Theron as an aid worker who romances Javier Bardem’s doctor character while the two are in Africa for humanitarian work. Jean Reno and Adle Exarchopoulos also star, with a script by Erin Dignam.

The derision began early in the film’s first screening, with the audience laughing during the title sequence and at various points throughout. By the end, the audience had had enough — they booed, long and loud.

Viewers immediately took to Twitter and other forms of social media to express their dismay and contempt, while professional critics wasted no time in detailing their dislike of the movie in lengthy reviews.

Criticism ranged from “pompous” to “infuriating.” One common complaint was that the film uses the Sudanese genocide and African suffering as a backdrop for a love story between Westerners. Amidst scenes of Bardem and Theron emoting about their star-crossed love are violent images of warlords, brutality and suffering children.

Penn, who’s become increasingly committed to humanitarian work in the past few years, stands by his film and praised the actors’ performances. He has yet to announce a release date.

Brian Cranston Appears in Starring Role on HBO Film

The important Civil Rights legislation passed during the Johnson Administration ended the segregation which had existed for decades in some Southern states following the Civil War and Reconstruction.

The film, All The Way, describes LBJ’s fight to pass controversial Civil Rights legislation following the assassination in office of President John F. Kennedy. Actress Melissa Leo costars as the First Lady and Anthony Mackie plays Dr. Martin Luther King. Bradley Whitford portrays Vice President Hubert Humphrey and Stephen Root plays FBI Director Herbert Hoover.

Bryan Cranston previously won acclaim for television performances which include playing Malcolm’s father on the FOX television comedy Malcolm in the Middle and high school chemistry teacher-turned-meth-manufacturer, Walter White, in the hit dramatic series Breaking Bad. His performance in the role of LBJ has already generated media buzz about whether he and co-star Melissa Leo will garner Emmy nominations for their performances in All The Way.

Bryan Cranston recently co-starred with actor John Leguizamo in The Infiltrator (2016), a film about efforts to bring down the Escobar drug cartel. The film will reach theaters in the United States in July.
