Read 2019 Oscars Will Go On Without a Host for First Time in 30 Years Report

With all the controversy surrounding Kevin Hart, and now with there apparently being no host for the upcoming Oscars, it's reported the Academy is trying to bring in The Avengers to save the day.

Colbert, in an internet savvy move, gets Hart to then tell jokes that he would have had he actually hosted the Oscars.

Kevin Hart, 38, stepped down from presenting next month's ceremony after some of his past controversial tweets emerged, for which he has since spoken out twice to apologise. The comedian first refused to apologize saying he'd apologized in the past.

While attending Ellen DeGeneres' talk show, Hart said he does not "have a homophobic bone in my body".

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

Sources say that producers will select a crop of A-listers to introduce various segments instead of relying on one top name to kick things off the ceremony with the usual monologue and montage. "It's hard to predict what can happen... right now I don't have the time".

It's said that the show's producers are now working overtime to try and sign up as many big-name Marvel stars as possible and that several cast members were asked not to present at the Golden Globes in order to make their appearances at the Oscars that little bit more special.

The last time the evening had no host was during the 61st Academy Awards in March 1989, which began with a widely mocked musical number starring Rob Lowe and Snow White.

The 2019 Academy Awards will take place Sunday, Feb. 24 live on ABC.
