There was something awfully predictable about the news that, in the wake of her admission that she had an affair with the film's director Rupert Sanders, Kristen Stewart will no longer be the main character in subsequent Snow White and the Huntsman movies, if she plays a role in them at all. It's still unclear what, exactly, is going to happen with the burgeoning franchise after the initial movie made $391 million at the box office earlier this year. The Hollywood Reporter initially said that the movies that follow will be treated as if they're a spinoff focusing on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman and that Stewart will not be involved in any capacity, though Sands may be back to direct. And the Los Angeles Times later reported that she could return as a supporting character. Either way, her demotion is a depressing referendum on the unequal blame apportioned between the married Sanders and Stewart, and the end of a potential female-centered action fantasy franchise.

Meanwhile people like Charlie Sheen, Chris Brown and Michael Vick remain not only employed but popular. There's not a double standard here at ALL.... rolleyes.gif

I had read that she has been dropped from the film too and it does seem unfair but maybe there is more to the story. It might be easier to put a scarlet letter on the girl.

I didn't know "Snow White and the Huntsman" was a franchise; I thought it was just some one crappy modern re-telling of a fairy tale. Now that I know it's a franchise, my life is a tiny bit worse.

Yeah, I've avoided seeing the movie because I heard it was crappy and I'm not a fan of Kristen Stewart and her robot face. If they dropped her because she's a terrible actor I understand that, but it seems like it was all politics in this case.
