Will Captain Jack take his talents over to Marvel Studios to play the Sorcerer Supreme and usher in the magick era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Rumor: Johnny Depp To Play Doctor Strange In Upcoming Marvel Movie

Latino-Review is starting the year off right with another huge scoop, which finds Marvel Studios supposedly bringing in A-list talent in the form of Johnny Depp for their third phase initiative.

Word on the street is that Depp met with Marvel Studios to discuss potentially joining the fracas as the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange.

The source in this latest rumor muses that the discussion has legs and could possibly be true. Similar to the Vin Diesel / Marvel meeting that created much speculation, but turned out to be fact, the possibility of Depp playing Doctor Strange works to fill the void left by Robert Downey Jr.'s scene-stealing Tony Stark.

Not to mention, Depp is already part of the Disney family (which owns Marvel and Lucasfilms) and he earns a mighty healthy paycheck from the company for his Pirates of the Caribbean films in comparison to what Downey Jr. gets for his Marvel appearances. Depp is a professed comic book fan and with Marvel's Phase Three initiative already starting off with a bang, the smart money is that a Doctor Strange pic would follow a Marvel Cinematic Universe impacted by Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Marvel is notoriously careful and secret with its casting, and Depp commands one of the biggest price tags in Hollywood. Do you think he would make a good Sorcerer Supreme? Is Marvel reaching too high for talent instead of breaking new stars?

Netflix Releases 'Dear White People' Season 3 Trailer

Loose ends are finally tied, while other storylines and character arcs are more defined in the third season of Netflix's Dear White People. The Justin Simien comedy released its trailer Friday (July 19).

Shadow And Act report a few scenes that season three will deliver includes Sam (Logan Browning) parting ways with her radio show, Troy (Brandon Bell) experiencing a parody or pastiche, and Lionel (DeRon Horton) continuing to live in his identity.

The campus' secret society, The Order of X, also reappears after being discovered in season 2 by Sam and Lionel. Depicting a lighter and easing going tone is a shift from the gloom and murk from previous seasons while still giving a satirical sense of style. As the series moves through its characters dealing with microaggressions and evident racism at Winchester University, the script addresses a range of controversial issues.

Yvette Nicole Brown (Avengers: Endgame), Blair Underwood (When They See Us), Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black), and the show's creator Simien are set to make guest appearances throughout the season, according to IndieWire. 

Season 3 will premiere on Aug. 2.

The Internet Reacts To ‘Cats’ Trailer Feat. Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba And More

The film adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats musical will soon hit the big screen, but the new trailer isn't getting the best internet reviews. The two-minute sneak peek released Thursday (July 18), gives a first look at the cast, which includes Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, James Corden and Ian McKellen, decked out as felines.

Elba stars as the mysterious Macavity and Hudson portrays Grizabella the Glamour Cat who sings “Memory,” one of the musical’s most popular numbers. Derulo takes on Rum Tum Tugger, Corden plays Bustopher Jones, Swift is Bombalurina, and McKellen is Gus the Theater Cat. The all-star cast also features Dame Judi Dench as Old Deuteronomy.

Many of the bad Twitter reviews were due to the CGI technology making for an awkward final product that left some utterly confused, and maybe even terrified.

Spike Lee's 'She's Gotta Have It' Won't Return To Netflix For Season Three

Nola Darling and the She's Gotta Have It cast will not return to Netflix for season three, according to Entertainment Weekly. Director Spike Lee revisited his 1986 feature film to create the series adaption in 2017.

Starring DeWanda Wise (Nola Darling), her character considers herself a free-spirited artist who weaves her intimate relationships and experiences, all while going toe-to-toe with the gentrification of her Brooklyn community.

The sudden cancellation arrived less than two months after season two aired earlier this summer. "While this is our last season, we're very proud that it will be on our service for years to come," Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement on Wednesday (July 17).

The nineteen-episode series also starred Anthony Ramos, Ifenesh Hadera, Cleo Anthony, Lyriq Bent, Margot Bingham, Chyna Layne, and Fat Joe. Musical selections featured on the show included Stevie Wonder, Prince, Marvin Gaye, Madonna, Erykah Badu, and Frank Ocean.

Lee is currently working on an upcoming film for Netflix titled Da 5 Bloods. The war drama tells the story of Vietnam veterans with appearances from Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Isiah Whitlock Jr. (BlacKkKlansman), Delroy Lindo (The Good Fight), and Norm Lewis (Les Misérables).
