Here's some horrible news coming straight from the Hollywood adaptation of Akira. Garrett Hedlund has reportedly been offered the role of Kaneda. Now we can trade in our fears about whitewashing for a new set of worries about the world's blandest Kaneda to ever ride a Huffy into a futuristic McDonalds.
Back in 1982, Tron zapped us into a whole new world of storytelling. You can still feel the love, and excitement, on every frame of that movie. So it's sad that Tron Legacy turns those thrills into snoozes. Spoilers ahead.
Disney released a sneak peek of Tron Legacy to the masses, and stuffed in between a few old scenes are new moments to get excited about. Plus, check out Olivia Wilde's head-to-toe pleather program unitard in her new banner.
We ventured inside Flynn's, into the vivid glow of the Tron universe. We met Tron Legacy stars Garrett Hedlund and Bruce Boxleitner, plus director Joseph Kosinski and producer Sean Bailey. They told us how the new movie raises the game.

The latest Captain America casting saga continues. Turns out yesterday's sure thing, John Krasinski, is out, and has been replaced with the Human Torch himself, Chris Evans.
Welcome Garrett Hedlund as the new star of Disney's Tron 2.0, sequel to the 1982 light-cycle flick. While I can't say much for his acting chops, he's certainly giving Tron Guy some much-needed competition.
