Fans were ticked off when they announced who had been cast in the 50 Shades of Grey movie.
They cast Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Lots of people weren’t happy with those choices so someone started an online petition to get the roles recast. The petition got nearly 90k signatures.
Well someone got cold feet and dropped out of the movie.. It was announced over the weekend that Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the film.
He blamed his busy schedule as being the reason. He said that he couldn’t “adequately prepare for the role” because his TV schedule was so hectic.
But sources say that he really just didn’t want all of the negative attention. The source said, “The attention and the pressure was intense. More than anything he hates attention and being in Fifty Shades of Grey would force him to do lots of media. That’s really not his thing. Charlie doesn’t want to be massively famous. Plus, he hates conforming and being told what to do. This role would force him to have to be something he is not.”
Wonder who they are going to cast to be Christian Grey now? Wouldn’t it be funny if they cast the other hated movie man of the moment, Ben Affleck?
Dakota Johnson is still in the movie for now. Considering that no one knows who the hell she is, she probably won’t be dropping out because of all the unwanted attention.
Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in this Man of Steel sequel, where he’s going to be taking on Superman. He actually signed on to do a few movies so we’ll be seeing him as Batman for awhile.. and there are a lot of fans that aren’t happy that he’s going to be Batman. They signed petitions and cried into their comic books but Bat Affleck is here to stay!
But as devastating as this is, casting Ben Affleck hasn’t caused in actual harm.. until now. There is this card in a recent edition of Trivial Pursuit that asks, “Who has never been Batman: Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, George Clooney, Val Kilmer or Adam West?”
They thought that adding Ben’s name to the list was a safe bet because even the Trivial Pursuit writers never imagined him as Batman. But now since he’s putting on the cape, they have to declare that card as null and void and leave it out of future games since all of the men have now been the man of bat.
Thanks a lot Ben Affleck. You ruin everything.
The masses were upset when Ben Affleck was named as the new Batman. He’s going to play the caped crusader in a few movies, including this Batman vs. Superman flick, and lots of people weren’t happy with the casting choice.
Well if that casting choice upsets you, this will really make you mad. How would you feel if Justin Bieber was cast as Robin?
Bieber posted a picture of the Batman vs. Superman script with his name stamped across it. The picture is caption with “#robin??”.
The Batman fans really got upset after seeing that photo. Casting Bat Affleck was bad enough but to add Justin Bieber to the mix is just a cruel and unwatchable punishment.
But before you cry in your comic books, this could be just a prank. Justin later tweeted, “Off to do something funny… or die ”, so everyone is hoping that this is just a sick and twisted joke.
Hollywood just can’t get it right in the casting department. They ticked off the nerds by casting Ben Affleck as Batman, now they ticked off the housewives by casting these two I-can’t-remember-their-names-right-now in the 50 Shades of Grey movie.
They cast Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey, who’s most famous for his role of Jax on the show Sons of Anarchy, and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Her biggest cred is being the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, but she’s had some small roles in a few movies and was on a short-lived TV show.
Someone started an online petition, rallying to have them replaced with Matt Bomer (he was in Magic Mike) and Alexis Bledel. The petition has 43,000+ (as of this morn) names on it.
So if you are one of those raging angry people that are upset over the casting choices, this is really going to make you mad. Ryan Gosling was the first choice to play Christian Grey. He was asked to do the movie and he turned it down because he “wasn’t interested”.
Now I’m not sure whose first choice Gosling was (besides every woman with eyes) because author E.L. James was allegedly gunning for Twilight boy, Robert Pattinson.
To quote Garth Brooks, “Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers” because I would HATE to see scrawny RPatz get that role. And sorry for bringing up the G-man (God, not Garth) in a 50 Shades story but I thought it was fitting here.
And I personally don’t really think that Ryan Gosling would have been great in the role either. He’s too much of a nice boy. I like him more reciting poetry in the rain. He doesn’t have a face for bondage.
I think they did a good job casting Charlie Hunnam. He doesn’t look like a good boy.. and he cleans up nice after a shower and shave.
Agree? Or you still feel wahhh over the situation?
The world, or comic nerds at least, became outraged when it was announced that Ben Affleck was crowned as the new Batman. He’s gonna take on Superman (Henry Cavill) in the Man of Steel sequel… and he’s signed on to do several more movies as the caped crusader.
Wouldn’t it be nice if they topped this movie off with another familiar superhero? Matt Damon would make a pretty good sidekick, Robin.
Just calm down with all your petitions because Matt Damon says that ain’t happening.
Matt saw the photoshopped pictures of him in the Robin gear running the streets of Gotham with Bat Affleck and he said, “I am a little older than Ben. I never saw Robin as older than Batman. Somebody sent me a picture actually. It was really funny. But it’s safe to say I won’t be Robin.”
He’s also taking up for his long time friend because he knows that he’ll be just fine in the bat suit. He said, “I think it will be great. It will be terrific. I know there are a lot of people grousing on the Internet. I just think it’s kind of funny. You know, he’s not playing King Lear. It’s Batman! [That's] certainly within his skill set.”
