"I'm over that, I'm over the moment", in an interview with American TV network ABC.

According to the report, the producers will select a number of A-listers to introduce various segments instead of "relying on one marquee name to kick things off in a monologue filled with Trump zingers".

Last week, Hart when on "Ellen" to discuss the controversy.

"It's a insane hamster wheel and there's got to be a more exciting way to do it". There is no more conversation about it.

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 Academy nearly reconsidered Hart after he agreed to sit down with talk show host Ellen Degeneres in early January.

And of course, a Marvel-ous Oscars would be a win for Disney, since it owns Marvel and ABC, which is airing the ceremony. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) together onstage.

A host needs to be smart and quick on their feet and have broad appeal, said Janson, as well as the ability to hold the attention of a room on a live show and ideally a theatre background. Over a month later, the Academy Awards have yet to confirm a replacement, with Marvel fans thinking Thor: Ragnarok's Korg would make the ideal host.

The problem with that is that this would be the first time since 1989 that the Oscars went hostless, and that night also had a variety show vibe to it.
