"The Avengers" Cast Reportedly Preparing To Host The Oscars

Kevin Hart said he's done talking about the tweet controversy and he isn't hosting the Oscars this year

Hart dropped out within hours of being selected, when he refused to apologise for his past homophobic remarks that emerged on Twitter just after his selection.

Hart will not be returning to host the Oscars and has emphatically said so.

Skits will also be on focus in this year's awards.

But if the Academy is really out to distract us from the Kevin Hart thing and proceed without a host, I hope they really go for it, and make it an all-Avengers evening, with every presenter and announcer coming from the MCU.

Nothing is set in stone yet as THR says "specific details are still being hammered out about how the actors who play the popular characters will be incorporated into the 91st Oscars ceremony".

McLachlan is seeking $6.5 million in special damages, and his defamation hearing is set down for four weeks from February 4. They said he had touched them inappropriately and sexually harassed them.

A day later, Hart announced he was formally turning down the hosting gig.

Sources told Variety that producers will select A-listers to introduce segments like the opening monologue and performances. "It's a choice that I've personally made to say I'm not addressing it anymore". Instead of an opening monologue, there was a big musical number and an infamous Rob Lowe version of "Proud Mary".

The Hollywood Reporter has the update on the Academy's plan to proceed without a host for the 2019 Oscars ceremony that will be broadcast on Sunday, February 24.

According to the Hollywood trade, the Academy is booking as much of the cast as possible, though it hasn't been reported whether the Avengers castmembers in question would appear individually or as a group.
