Legal issues amongst its cast, creator JK Rowling’s TERF status and struggles at the box office forced Warner Brothers to question if the franchise was a worthy investment. “Secrets of Dumbledore” released April 15 and almost certainly failed to meet its box office goals after bringing in $280 million on a $200 million budget so far.

Jared Leto is a bore in Marvel’s ‘Morbius’

Leto does nothing fellow portrayals of comic book geniuses do. He’s not a step ahead of the audience like a Batman portrayal, there’s none of Benedict Cumberbatch’s sarcasm or ego and absolutely none of Robert Downey Jr.’s manic charm.
