Hulu is looking to take us back to the future with its Futurama revival, but it looks like Bender might not be back, baby. The rude robot voice, John DiMaggio has yet to sign on to reprise his role on the show. According to Deadline, negotiations stalled after DiMaggio felt the proposal he was offered was uncompetitive due to the show’s success and name recognition. Deadline notes that the offer made to DiMaggio was in line with that of Billy West and Katey Sagal. While both parties are eager to get things done, it looks like DiMaggio wants more money. Netflix is removing a few Marvel superheroes from its original catalog of shows. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher and The Defenders will leave the streaming platform in March. The Gambit movie, based on the card-throwing X-Men, was supposed to star Channing Tatum until the idea was completely scrapped. The project’s director, Reid Carolin, recently spoke with Playlist to give us a bit more information about the now-cancelled project.
