Kevin Hart said he's "over" talking about the homophobic jokes that cost him the Oscars gig - but then he and Terry Gross talked about it anyway. And the cast of The Avengers are The Oscars' number one choice.

There's also "Captain Marvel" which is being released very soon, so we could even see Brie Larson step up to the plate too.

"I know they're trying to use the host as a way to get better ratings, but that's really not where the ratings come from - they come from the movies", said Thompson, IndieWire editor-at-large.

Sources told THR that the show that several "Avengers" stars were asked not to present at last Sunday's Golden Globes so that they're appearance at the Oscars could be more impactful for fans of the franchise.

The prestigious Academy Awards show highlighting Hollywood's most notable films and talents is radically changing its format after 30 years.

The academy is also looking to add a new category to future Oscars in an attempt to include blockbuster titles.

The 2013 ceremony actually featured a dry run for such an event, with Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L Jackson together on stage. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the host is paid between $15,000 and $25,000. And when you're doing something that's that much in the spotlight, with that much focus on it, that much intensity, you're going to have a lot of opinions from a lot of people. I think it needs to be somebody who loves the films.
