Let’s have a quick bit of “How the Sausage Is Made” talk. Sit with me. If this were a normal Sunday, I almost definitely would’ve put the Jonathan Majors and Meagan Good business in the headline because Pajiba Love is a reliable little click factory. If you’ve ever wondered why it’s heavily celeb-slanted, that’s why. It helps power the more thoughtful articles on the site. However, it’s Mother’s Day, so instead of giving Majors’ bad energy the spotlight, here’s Taylor Swift — whom I think the kids might call “mother?” Christ, I’m old. — proving she won’t hesitate to stop her massively lucrative tour if she sees overzealous security guards putting hands on her fans. Not happening. (New York Post)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has barely been out for a week, but Warner Bros. clearly wants to move those eyeballs over to James Gunn’s next project, Superman: Legacy, with a quickness. Case in point: This is a whole lot of casting news that suddenly came flying out, magically, somehow. (THR)

From Genevieve: I did not realize, until reading this interview, that Chris Diamantopoulos is the current voice of Mickey Mouse, which means I saw a whole lot of Mickey Mouse’s ass in the last episode of Mrs. Davis, and I’m gonna feel weird about that. (Vulture)

The Fast & Furious franchise gets a surprising amount of leeway when these things are basically Marvel movies but with cars. They have buttloads of CGI, spinoffs, end credit scenes, and now, they’ll apparently never die. (Variety)

From Petr: Seth Rogen is a lad. (IndieWire)

Dsbs42 didn’t think she could go wrong with a book Neil Gaiman called glorious. D: A Tale of Two Worlds by Michael Faber started well, but it is “recommended for small children only because adults who have read widely aren’t going to find a lot here.” What was the last recommendation that didn’t pan out?  (Cannonball Read 15)
