Bethesda To Make Big Announcement Soon; Is It ‘Fallout 4′? ‘Elder Scrolls 6′? Something New?
Before Andrew Garfield signed on to play as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, Donald Glover was rumored to play as the webslinging hero. That was as close as we got to an actor of color playing a lead character who is normally portrayed as a Caucasian. Now we are a step closer to breaking the comic book color barrier with this latest rumor.
Josh Trank is currently in the casting phase of the Fantastic Four reboot. One of the biggest casting rumors to circulate is that Allison Williams (HBO’s Girls) will play Sue Storm aka The Invisible Woman. Now there is a report from The Wrap indicating that Chronicle star Michael B. Williams could play Johnny Storm, a.k.a. The Human Torch, a character who has long been recognized as white. [...]

Has HBO Already Greenlighted ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 4?
Every couple of years, gamers start to get really excited about what the next big game from Bethesda Softworks will be. Oh hell, who are we kidding? Gamers start getting excited for the next Bethesda game the day after the company releases a new title. This excitement stems from their two biggest franchises, The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. The two franchises are very different—one being set in a fantasy world, the other in a desolate post-apocalyptic wasteland—while remaining similar in terms of offering massive and immersive RPG experiences.
Their last big title was of course The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim back in 2011 (has it been that long already?!), and rumors have already been circling about what their next game might be. We still know nothing officially, but, judging by a recent comment by Bethesda VP Pete Hines, we might soon find out what it is we’re already twitching with excitement for. [...]

Telltale Games Teases More ‘Walking Dead’ Content To Bridge Episode 5 To Season 2
When it comes to HBO greenlighting new seasons of their shows, an announcement doesn’t usually come until the current season gets going and the network can see how the numbers are looking. This also goes for Game of Thrones, especially given the show’s massive budget.
That said, everyone has assumed that a season four of the show based on George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series has been locked in for a while now, despite no official confirmation yet. This is because not only is it one of the most popular series on TV, but because season three—which premieres on March 31st—only covers half of the massive third book in the series, A Storm of Swords, while the first two seasons covered the first two books in their entirety.
Now, according to one of the actors on the show, it’s looking more and more likely that the waiting is just procedure. [...]

Prepare For Villain Overload Again: Venom Might Appear in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′
Telltale Games’ five episode point-and-click version of The Walking Dead was one of the very best video games of 2012, with one of the best video game characters/relationships in any game. Ever. If you’ve not yet played it—and even if you never touch video games but are a Walking Dead fan—find a way to play this one immediately (Xbox 360, PS3, PC).
Because of how popular the game was, fans are already buzzing with excitement over a season two that’s currently in the early stages of development. But as you know, “early stages of development” translates out to “excruciatingly long wait ahead.”
But it appears that Telltale doesn’t want that painful wait to be quite so painful, and may have a little something in store for fans much earlier. [...]

Production on the tentatively titled The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is proceeding at full speed with casting updates emerging on a weekly basis. We know that Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti will be playing the new villains Electro and the Rhino, respectively, and Shailene Woodley of The Descendants is the Mary Jane Watson of the rebooted franchise. Now there is the distinct possibility that the movie might be gaining a third villain, or at least the seeds are being planted for this particular adversary to take center stage should a third movie get the green light.
Director Marc Webb tweeted a teaser picture on Wednesday on the occasion of the birthday of actor Dane DeHaan, who is playing Harry Osborn, the troubled best friend of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield). The picture appears to be of a locker used in the movie, and die hard fans of the Ultimate Spider-Man comics will probably recognize the number on the locker door: 14 [...]
Rumor For Your Thoughts: Will The First Standalone ‘Star Wars’ Movie Focus On Yoda?
February 5th, 2013 at 1:43 am | |
We’ve had a seemingly endless supply of Star Wars news since Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, and with this endless supply of news comes an equal amount of rumors, as is to be expected. Which of these rumors will rise up and prove to be accurate is part of the fun. Most of the news we’ve heard regards Star Wars Episode VII, the long-awaited (and once thought impossible) first movie in the third trilogy. The beginning of the final chapters in what will be a trilogy of trilogies. Unless you’re one of those folks that chooses to pretend the prequel trilogy doesn’t exist, in which case ignore everything being said here.
The first of the big rumors we’ve heard was that Darth Vader might return in Episode VII. Then came word that Zack Snyder was developing one of the standalone Star Wars movies, the first of a planned many individual movies telling individual stories separate from the numbered flicks. That rumor was denied quickly and its validity remains to be seen, but now comes a new rumor to feed on. What would you say if the first standalone Star Wars movie told a story centered around the one and only Yoda? [...]
Could This Be The Final Team Roster For The ‘Justice League’ Movie?
January 24th, 2013 at 5:18 pm | |
DC and Warner Bros. are desperate to get their Justice League into theaters by their projected release date of summer 2015, though so far the only confirmed details on the project is the studio’s assigning Will Beall (Gangster Squad) to write the script. The rest has been a riot of rampant speculation. Major filmmakers from Ben Affleck to Lana and Andy Wachowski have been linked to the director’s chair, but no one has been hired for the job yet. Darkseid has been rumored to be the film’s big bad cosmic villain.
As for which DC Comics superheroes will be part of 2015′s occupants of the Hall of Justice, so far it is a given that Superman and Batman will be leading the charge into whatever large-scale battle the filmmakers pit them against. The upcoming Man of Steel is said to play heavily into the build-up to Justice League with Batman possibly making a post-credits cameo, if those rumors turn out to be true. Besides those likely character choices, the remaining members of the team – and how many there will be – are still up in the air. But that looks to be changing [...]
Is This ‘Fallout 3′ Voice Actor Teasing The Existence Of ‘Fallout 4′?

Rumor: Could These DC Heroes Be In The ‘Justice League’ Film?
It’s widely assumed that the next big game we can expect from Bethesda Softworks is Fallout 4. The past handful of years has seen the game makers alternating between The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, and while there’s surely a few fans hoping for something fresh and unique, most fans of their games are perfectly happy getting new installments in just those two series…this writer included.
But still, we wait patiently for some kind of announcement after events like last year’s E3 convention and the Spike Video Game Awards—two popular places to announce/reveal new games—came and went without so much as a peep.
There is, however, the tiniest of teases to take in in the form of a Fallout 3 voice actor who says we may be hearing him again in the future. [...]

Rumor For Your Thoughts: New Xbox 720 To Release In One Year
There’s been plenty of Justice League movie rumors over the years; lately, the ‘net has been clogged with Star Wars rumors, but now it’s seems we’re back to Justice League. Among the biggest reports to come out of the Justice League rumor mill is that Darkseid will be the villain of the film and that it would be based on issues Justice League #183-185.
The newest rumor involves the Justice League lineup and some of the cameo appearances that will be made in the film. Check out the list of the rumored line-up here after the jump.
There is absolutely no evidence to confirm or deny that this is the actual list of superheroes to appear in Justice League. We won’t know if this is the true list until Man of Steel comes out, in which case it does look like WB is willing to risk having two Superman film properties fly around. A move like that wouldn’t really make much sense, but if WB can make it work, more power to them [...]

Matthew Vaughn Might Just Be Directing ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ After All
Not only is this not the first time that we’ve heard rumors of Microsoft’s next generation console follow-up to the Xbox 360, known only as the Xbox 720 or code name “Durango” at the moment, but it’s not the first time we’ve heard about a possible 2013 holiday season release window.
According to sources, Microsoft is planning to release their new console come this time next year, and the company is still trying to decide whether to announce it officially at the next E3 convention, or do their own special announcement event. [...]

Since the news broke a month ago that Disney had purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion and was developing Star Wars: Episode VII for a 2015 release, British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn has been, despite constant denials, one of the frontrunners for the highly-coveted directing gig. At the recent London premiere of Seven Psychopaths actor Jason Flemyng, a close friend and collaborator of Vaughn’s since the director was producing Guy Ritchie’s quotable gangster pictures, let something very interesting slip during an interview with DIY TV, according to their Twitter feed:
We chatted to the lovely Jason Flemyng who pretty much let slip that Matthew Vaughn will be on Star Wars IV duties oops! #Jameson7Psychos
Okay, they said “Star Wars IV”. That could be a modest little joke on Flemyng’s part or maybe the interviewer misinterpreted something her said. Obviously a remake of A New Hope is not even on any sane person’s mind and never will be. In any case, DIY TV later took to their Twitter to correct their previous snafu [...]
Rumor: Could Joseph Gordon-Levitt Play Batman In The ‘Justice League’ Movie?
November 27th, 2012 at 12:55 pm | |
Yesterday, our magnificent man with the news eelyajekiM reported that next summer’s Superman reboot Man of Steel may play a vital role in leading into the long-awaited 2015 release of Justice League. If that’s the case, then Warner Bros. has decided to take a page from the Marvel Studios’ playbook and use their solo superhero films to build up to the team-up epic, a formula that proved to be a surefire winner when you look at the grosses for The Avengers.
Anyone who’s been following the development and production of Man of Steel and its dovetailing with the release of The Avengers could have guessed by now that the new Superman, played by Henry Cavill, would naturally be leading the League when they make their big screen bow in three summers, around the same time The Avengers 2 hits movie screens. What wasn’t so obvious was who the studio would pick to play Batman seeing as how the Christopher Nolan-directed Dark Knight trilogy has concluded and Christian Bale doesn’t appear to be willing to be a team player in the Justice League since Nolan won’t be involved [...]
UPDATED! Disney Looking To Hire Lawrence Kasdan, Simon Kinberg To Write ‘Star Wars Episode 8′ & ‘Episode 9′?
November 20th, 2012 at 8:30 pm | |
The great thing about owning Star Wars (if you happen to have a few billion dollars hiding in your gigantic couch cushions, as Disney did), is that you don’t have to wait around to see if one movie will do well enough to warrant a sequel and eventual franchise. It’s already one of the most established franchises in history, a guaranteed cash cow. And they plan on jumping all over that fact like a frat boy would a freshly microwaved burrito…hopefully to our collective delight, and not our condemnation.
We’ve already found out that Oscar winning Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt will write the first planned movie, Star Wars Episode VII, for its 2015 release. But now comes word that the company is already looking at two more writers to take on the next two installments, Star Wars Episode VIII (or IIX? Have we ever gotten this high with a Roman numeral movie franchise?) and Star Wars Episode IX. [...]
Rumor For Your Thoughts: Will Darth Vader Return From The Dead In ‘Star Wars Episode 7′?

Rumor For Your Thoughts: ‘Modern Warfare 4′ Already Confirmed?
Fans of George Lucas’s original Star Wars trilogy have seemed to remain cautiously optimistic (while quietly terrified) about Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm and their plans to make the trilogy they thought would never ever happen just a couple of weeks ago.
This cautious optimism likely stems from Disney’s acquisition of Marvel and the movies that have been released since, including The Avengers, which has given them just enough hope that Star Wars Episode VII can bring the franchise back from that darkest and most depressing of places that Lucas’s prequel trilogy delivered it to. Bring it back from the dead. [...]

It’s almost a rhetorical question to ask—the Call of Duty video game franchise has grossed an insane amount of money over the past few years—but it’s still something that does have a question mark at the end. Has Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 been confirmed already, a couple of weeks before Call of Duty: Black Ops II arrives?
According to Bill Murray (no, not that one), the actor who voices the popular character Captain Price, development on the game has already begun. [...]
