Here's the Scoop...

I don't know about you, but I'm excited for this... Ben Affleck in talks to star in 'The Accountant 2'.

Warner Bros. is in talks with Ben Affleck to star in a sequel to 2016 action thriller The Accountant.

Affleck who starred in the original, is in negations to return alongside director Gavin O' Connor, screenwriter Bill Dubuque, and producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Mark Williams, Variety reported.

Released in October, The Accountant featured Affleck as a highly-functioning autistic math genius on the wrong side of law who worked as an accountant for criminal organizations.

As authorities begin to follow his activities and a new client puts him in danger, Affleck's character starts to use his extensive military training he received as a child from his father in order to protect himself, racking up a high body count in the process.

The film also starred Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow, and Cynthia Addai-Robinson. The Accountant was successful for Warner Bros. earning $155 million worldwide on a budget of $44 million.

Affleck continues to have a relationship with Warner Bros. after releasing Live By Night which he directed and by starring as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The 44-year-old will again star as The Dark Knight in Justice League, due in theaters Nov. 17.

I rather enjoyed 'The Accountant' and would like to see more films featuring that character. I don't care for math, but it was a good movie.

Be Well,
Steve

??? Guess Who ???

Which actress says 'Spider-Man' makers promised a sexy Aunt May?

Marisa Tomei says she didn't realize Aunt May, the character she plays in Spider-Man: Homecoming, is typically portrayed as a matronly, older woman in the franchise.

May is the guardian of the titular, teen superhero, played this time around by Tom Holland.

Tomei's May is protective of her nephew, but she also dresses youthfully and attracts a lot of male attention.

"I didn't really know what Aunt May looked like until after I signed on," Tomei laughed at a New York press conference Sunday.

"[The filmmakers] kept going, 'She's going to be sexy,' and I was like: 'Oh, God, stop trying to coddle me! Why do you have to pander to me and try and ...? Wait! Oh! You mean in contrast to another way to go,'" the 52-year-old actress said. "But these guys had the vision of how it was going to be revamped and everyone was going to be younger and she is his aunt by marriage, so she could really be any age."

The role was previously portrayed by Rosemary Harris, now 89, in 2002's Spider-Man, 2004's Spider-Man 2 and 2007's Spider-Man 3. Sally Field, now 70, portrayed Aunt May in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man and 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Tomei was first introduced as the character in 2016's Captain America: Civil War.

Co-starring Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr. and Zendaya, Spider-Man: Homecoming is due in theaters on July 7.
