-Top Gun: Maverick is still holding out for a summer release, which seems wildly optimistic.

Paul Bettany says Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon “really, really wanted” Vision to have a penis in his “birth” scene. “And everyone, [Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige] and [Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito], I mean everybody was like ‘I don’t know, Joss…I mean…I’m not sure…'”

More details from FKA twigs‘s lawsuit against Shia LaBeouf have emerged, and her accusations are chilling. She says when filming The Tax Collector, he got so into his gangster character he drove around Los Angeles, shooting stray dogs dead so that he could get into the “mindset” of a killer.
She claims he also demanded she sleep naked and forced her to watch documentaries about murdered women before going to bed. He apparently was paranoid and suffered recurring delusions about gang members breaking into his home, so he slept with a loaded rifle at their bedside, but insisted on keeping the front door unlocked. She also says he would count the number of kisses she’d give him on any given day, and berate her if it wasn’t enough, and he knowingly infected her with an STD. Meanwhile, rumors surrounding LaBeouf’s alleged domestic violence have existed for years.

-Also, Sia tweeted her support for FKA twigs and said ‘pathological liar’ Shia LaBeouf ‘conned’ her into an ‘adulterous relationship.’“I’m sorry @Sia. This reinforces why I had to publicly share my experience. we need to support each other,” FKA responded.
