Will Smith Responds To The Academy’s Decision To Ban Him For 10 Years.

Will Smith is facing the consequences of his violent decisions. On Friday, April 8th, the Academy officially announced that the 53-year-old has been banned from the Oscars and any other Academy events “for a period of 10 years,” beginning today.

“During our telecast, we did not adequately address the situation in the room. For this, we are sorry. This was an opportunity for us to set an example for our guests, viewers and our Academy family around the world, and we fell short — unprepared for the unprecedented,” Academy CEO Dawn Hudson and President David Rubin wrote in a letter following a committee meeting this morning.

Not long after the news broke, the father of three shared his response exclusively to Entertainment Tonight. “I accept and respect the Academy’s decision,” he said, keeping things short and simple.

“This action we are taking today in response to Will Smith’s behaviour is a step toward a larger goal of protecting the safety of our performers and guests and restoring trust in the Academy. We also hope this can begin a time of healing and restoration for all involved and impacted,” the Academy said of their decision.

Elsewhere in their statement, the organization addressed Chris Rock’s impressive maintenance of his composure after being slapped. “We want to express our deep gratitude to Mr. Rock for maintaining his composure under extraordinary circumstances. We also want to thank our hosts, nominees, presenters and winners for their poise and grace during our telecast.”

The next Marvel Cinematic Universe TV show has been announced, and it features some new and familiar faces from Marvel’s catalog of films. She-Hulk will follow the adventures of Jennifer Walters, a burgeoning new lawyer who is cousins with The Hulk, aka Bruce Banner. The comedy series will follow Walters as she works to control her own giant green powers, while also balancing her career, her social life, and her angry impulses.

The series will star Tatiana Maslany as the titular character, along with Mark Ruffalo returning for another outing as Bruce Banner.Tim Roth will also return as the antagonist in the role of Abomination, the same role he played in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.

The trailer reveals that Walters represents other superheroes in her job as a lawyer, while she lives a double life as She-Hulk. While the trailer makes it seem like Walters would prefer a more quiet and normal life, she is compelled to use her newfound powers for the greater good.

This is not Maslany’s first experience in the world of television. Fans of Orphan Black will recognize her as the central protagonist Sarah Manning. She also gained notoriety in her role as Sister Alice McKeegan in Perry Mason.

All nine episodes of She-Hulk will be available for streaming on Disney Plus starting on August 17.
