So yesterday, we got a better look at Will Smith’s Genie in Disney’s upcoming Aladdin film and…well, “interesting” wouldn’t be good enough of a word to describe the response online.
Even still, after Disney’s Aladdin special gave moviegoers a look of how Will Smith will appear as the Genie in the movie, many remain unconvinced. Then, in the height of this, Will Smith and Disney revealed an official image of how the actor will appear. Smith himself took to his Instagram yesterday to share both the sneak peek and a new still image of him as the Genie, along with the caption “I told y’all I was gon’ be Blue!! 🧞♂️ Y’all need to trust me more often! 😆 #aladdin.” Here, have a look for yourself below.
Between the images and the recent sneak peek, what are your thoughts on Will Smith as the blue Genie in the upcoming Disney film? Do you need to see the film in action to come to a conclusion or are you already getting Blue Man Group vibes? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and stay tuned for more updates on Aladdin as the release date approaches.
Directed by Guy Ritchie, Disney’s Aladdin stars Mena Massoud, Will Smith, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Billy Magnussen, and Numan Acar.
The film will poof into theaters on May 24, 2019
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
