Cole Train set to return for new Gears of War?

5 July 2014 12:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lester Speight, who provides the voice of Gears of War’s breakout character Augustus “Cole Train” Cole, has confirmed recently that he has been contacted about appearing in the newest, currently unrevealed game in the popular third-person shooter series.

Responding truly in character when questioned on whether or not he’d been asked to return, Speight replied, “#whoobaby Yup!” With the possible return of Cole, it seems likely that the new game will feature other fan-favourite characters such as Marcus Fenix and Damon Baird, though details are unknown at this time.

The new Gears of War has been alluded to, but not officially announced yet. Recently however, Microsoft acquired the Gears of War license from Epic Games, before giving the task of developing a new game to Black Tusk Studios. Rod Fergusson, who was the director of the original Gears of War trilogy, has returned to oversee development of the new title. »

One of the numerous special features attached to the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD release of Thor: The Dark World, is the latest Marvel short film, Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King.

These shorts have become big hits with the fans, but All Hail the King is by far the biggest one yet, that you surely won't want to miss.

The 15-minute short opens with Jackson Norris (Scoot McNairy) a documentary filmmaker who arrives at Seagate Prison for his final interview with Trevor Slattery, as he tries to figure out who, exactly, this mysterious man really is. However, before the interview itself, we see »
