Contrary to a rumor ran by the Outhouse this week, a rumor is now circulating that an actor previously rumored to be under consideration for a leading role in a Marvel superhero film is still under consideration for the same role. The actor, who in considered to be of a higher caliber than other actors allegedly in competition for the role, may or may not still be interested and may or may not be entering into final contract negotiations.
"Yes, all the rumors from a month ago are still exactly the same," one source close to the Outhouse said. "There is nothing new to report on any rumor, but please feel free to stick an EXCLUSIVE in your title and make it seem like you're reporting something new."
Whether or not the actor actually takes the role in question is unclear. In fact, the only reason the Outhouse is reporting on the old/new rumor is because the article is sufficiently vague enough for us to recycle the next time an actor is repeatedly rumored to be cast in a role via several EXCLUSIVE articles on different sites over the course of a few months. This also serves as a way hedge our bets against the last rumor we ran while laying claim that we were among the first to report on a rumor as true and/or false, which is something that is drastically important to accumulating street cred for the upcoming HOLLYWOOD RUMOR WARS.
Stay tuned for our next incredibly vague movie rumor article that we can simply dredge up and re-run in a few months when there's another round of movie rumors that we're obligated to report on because long-form interviews and reviews don't pay the fucking site bills.
