#13 – Recasting Ruby Rose And MoviePass

Hope Strikes Back Podcast

Recasting Ruby Rose And MoviePassThere’s a lot going on in the world, and we’re going to do our best to break some of it down for you…

Remember when MoviePass came out and everyone wondered how they would ever make any money by allowing users to see as many movies as they want for only $9.99 a month? Apparently, nobody in the company saw the writing on the wall as they’ve had to significantly reduce what that fee gets you. And if you don’t like it? Too bad because you can never cancel. (It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.)

And did you hear about Ruby Rose being cast as Batwoman in the Arrowverse? Well, apparently she’s all wrong for the part and people are letting her know. So much so that she’s closed her Twitter account and restricted commenting on Instagram. With so much that we can talk about, it’s sad that we’re again talking about toxic fandoms.

Also, we have a new Spock! The decision to cast Ethan Peck as everyone’s favorite Vulcan on Star Trek: Discovery got us thinking about major roles being recast in Hollywood. We share our thoughts on Idris Elba playing James Bond. We also touch on a few other characters from film and TV that have been played by multiple actors.

Now that you’ve heard what we think about MoviePass, Ruby Rose, and who we’d like to see as the next James Bond, we want to hear what you think! What character recastings have you liked or hated? Have you used MoviePass? What’s your experience been like? And what about Ruby Rose and toxic fandoms? Send us an email (feedback@hopestrikesback.com) letting us know. Or feel free to leave a comment below or message us on Twitter or Facebook. We’d love to hear your thoughts!
