What's Popping: 'Fifty Shades of Grey', 'Batman vs Superman', 'Avatar', 'Ant-Man', 'Noah'

Charlie Hunnam

Those who've objected to Charlie Hunnam being cast as the 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation may be happy to learn that he has dropped out. Alexander Skarsgard, Jamie Dornan, and François Arnaud, among others, are possible replacements.

Warner Bros' untitled Batman/Superman team-up is further along than we thought, and is reportedly filming a football scene on October 19 at East Los Angeles College's Weingart stadium.

Sam Worthington has spilled the beans on when the Avatar sequels are filming, and according to him, all three sequels will begin shooting in October 2014. He has also revealed that the scripts are still being worked on.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd may or may not be finalists in the Ant-Man sweepstakes but that's what Variety is reporting. As per standard procedure, Marvel's Kevin Feige refuses to either confirm or deny the report.

Darren Aronofsky and Paramount may be feuding over Noah, according to anonymous sources. The studio is reportedly nervous over "troubling reactions" from test screenings but Aronofsky is "dismissive" and "doesn't care about [Paramount's] opinion."
