Blizzard Confirms Plans To Add More Overwatch Characters To Heroes Of The Storm

6 hours ago

With Overwatch being as popular as it’s ended up, many fans of another current Blizzard title, Heroes of the Storm, have naturally been wondering if the publisher has characters planned to appear in their crossover Moba. One character, Tracer, has been available in Heroes since April, but statements hinting at more heroes joining the fray have been hard to come by.

Destructoid writer Chris Carter recently reached out to Blizzard for any possible word regarding the possibility, and Kent-Erik Hagman, one of their lead designers, offered an encouraging statement:

I’d say the reaction to Tracer has been overwhelmingly positive! She has such a fun, almost militantly- positive personality that brings a unique voice to the Nexus. Having seen how our players reacted to her, you can definitely say that we’re looking at adding even more Heroes from Overwatch! There are so many awesome characters that we think would make great, »

Preacher Season Finale Promo Promises Some Serious Hell To Pay

8 hours ago

The first season of AMC’s controversial take on the even more controversial DC Vertigo comic series, Preacher, is almost at an end, and the events of last night’s gruesome penultimate episode have moved all of the pieces into place for a carnage-filled finale.

Fans have been wondering when the (un)holy trinity of Jesse Custer, Tulip O’Hare and Cassidy were finally going to team up and take to the road, and thanks to the extended Sdcc trailer, we do know that’s going to happen – but from the looks of things, they’re going to have a very large, very mean, and very dead cowboy blocking their path.

Yes, last night The Saint of Killers entered the fray when we discovered all those flashbacks we’ve been seeing were actually part of the personal Hell he’s been living through over-and-over again in the underworld. Poor DeBlanc »

The Unseen Review [Fantasia 2016]

8 hours ago

The Unseen is less about an invisible curse, and more about a family-man whose broken heart beats for the wife and daughter he left behind. You’ll sample grotesque glimpses into man’s usually-covered inner workings, but writer/director Geoff Redknap’s feature debut isn’t about horrors or scares. Instead, the veteran makeup artist/special effects guru parlays his prosthetic talents into an unnerving quest for one unlucky father, ripe with emotion and angst. You’ll get your Frankenstein-like reveals that make you gasp in astonishment, along with actual story constructs deeper than a few Hollow Man homages. This is genre work that offers something a little more than cheap thrills.

Aden Young stars as Bob Langmore, a former NHL prospect who fled from his family to become a mill worker. It sounds harsh, until we learn something special about Bob – he’s slowly turning invisible. There’s no explanation, »

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Adds Lilli Birdsell In A Recurring Role

8 hours ago

Some of the biggest TV news to come out of San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend was the confirmation that Marvel’s Agents of  S.H.I.E.L.D. would see the debut of the Robbie Reyes incarnation of Ghost Rider, and now that things have died down a little, the second major casting addition has been announced.

Deadline reports that actress/director Lilli Birdsell (Geek CharmingNCIS: La, How To Get Away With Murder) will recur on season 4 as a character named Lucy. We don’t know exactly how she’ll factor into the story, but the trade does provide a few more intriguing details.

A beautiful woman with a haunting quality, [Lucy] has a very violent streak in her inner self, because of things that have happened.

From the sounds of that, this Lucy gal will definitely have some kind of superpowers – but is she an established Marvel Comics character? There’s »

The Flash Director May Helm Captain Marvel

8 hours ago

Did Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander just let slip the name of the filmmaker who may be helming the upcoming Captain Marvel movie? It certainly seems like it.

After hearing over the weekend that Brie Larson was confirmed to be playing the titular hero, fans were left wondering who’d be sitting in the director’s chair. Rumors have surfaced in recent months pointing to Elizabeth Wood, Jennifer Kent and Niki Caro being frontrunners for the job, and now we have one more name to add to the list.

According to Alexander, Rachel Talalay may be in contention to direct the film.

I’m not on the list but I believe @rtalalay is and I couldn’t imagine a better director for it https://t.co/JeiXzvufP4

8 Awesome Moments From The Doctor Strange Comic-Con Trailer

9 hours ago

James Gunn said that the footage shown from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at Comic-Con this past Saturday wouldn’t be released online, and it hasn’t been. However, Marvel Studios more than made up for that by debuting a brand new trailer for Doctor Strange, the first of their Phase 3 movies which reaches the big screen this November courtesy of director Scott Derrickson.

It didn’t reveal a whole lot more than that first teaser did in terms of plot details, but the latest preview for this highly anticipated release was still packed full of never before seen footage, which made it clear that Doctor Strange is going to be Marvel’s most unique – and quite possibly most exciting – movie to date.

8 Awesome Moments From The Wonder Woman Comic-Con Trailer

9 hours ago

Wonder Woman is a movie which has been stuck in development hell for years now, with Warner Bros. seemingly reluctant to move forward with a female led superhero blockbuster after seeing the way the likes of Catwoman and Elektra flopped. Finding the right story also always seemed to be a challenge for them, too, and not even Joss Whedon could talk them into making it.

However, when it came time to announce a DC Films slate, there was no way that Wonder Woman couldn’t be included, especially now that moviegoers are crying out for more diversity in these comic book adaptations. So, after taking on a key role in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, next summer will see the Amazonian warrior step up to the plate for her first big screen solo outing.

It’s long overdue, but still a risky movie in some ways. Should it for some reason fail, »

8 Awesome Moments From The Justice League Comic-Con Trailer

10 hours ago

One of the biggest surprises to come out of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con had to be the first trailer and poster for Justice League. While there was a lot of speculation that we might get a group photo at the very least, no one expected footage to be shown at such an early stage in production, and the chances of it being released online seemed even slimmer.

After learning from their mistakes last year though (when the leaked Suicide Squad trailer forced them to upload an official version), Warner Bros. delivered the first sneak peek for Justice League on Saturday, and a strong argument could be made for it being the best thing to come out of the annual event this year.

The Flash May Have A Cameo In Suicide Squad

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is already packed full with more than enough characters, but it seems like there may be one more showing up – albeit in a cameo role which likely won’t involve much screentime. Already set to feature the colorful and wacky crew that is Task Force X, along with Batman and his longtime nemesis The Joker, we’re now hearing reports that The Flash will appear in the DC Comics adaptation as well.

Fans of the source material will no doubt know that Jai Courtney’s character, Captain Boomerang, has often found himself at odds with the Scarlet Speedster, which left many people wondering if Ezra Miller, who’s playing The Flash in Justice League, would somehow factor into Suicide Squad. Thus far, we haven’t had any confirmation on that, but with rumors swirling for a while now, »

Industrial Age Pic The Last Days Of Night Casts Eddie Redmayne

10 hours ago

Deadline brings word that Eddie Redmayne, star of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, has closed a deal to board The Last Days Of Night.

There, he’ll join Morten Tyldum and Graham Moore, director and screenwriter behind hit period drama The Imitation Game. Released in 2014, it nabbed Moore an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, and it’s understood studio Black Bear Pictures is hoping to strike gold once more.

Lifting inspiration from Moore’s own novel of the same name, an official statement relayed from the studio outlines the thrilling narrative at the heart of The Last Days of Night, which essentially revolves around a legal spat between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse at a time when both inventors were racing to patent the use of electric light.

As Black Bear’s description goes, Tyldum and Moore’s latest venture is all “about the nature of genius, »

Harry Styles Dons Period Garb In All-New Dunkirk Set Photos

11 hours ago

Amid the superhero furore that emanated from Warner Bros.’ Comic-Con presentation, one notable absentee was Dunkirk, the Christopher Nolan war thriller that’s eyeing a primetime release in July of next year.

In typical fashion, the esteemed filmmaker has enlisted an enviable roster of talent that boasts everyone from Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy to Fionn Whitehead and, er, Harry Styles. Yes, the One Direction heartthrob was perhaps the most surprising addition to that lineup, but a new wave of set photos emerging today place the spotlight on his soldier dressed in period garb. Check them out below.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Mapped Out Through 2020, Says Kevin Feige

11 hours ago

You may recall the fleeting news tidbit that emerged earlier this year revealing that Marvel Studios, in expanding its monolithic McU in new directions, had staked out three release dates in 2020 – May 1, July 10, and November 6, 2020, to be specific.

The exact details of those superhero features remain up in the air for now, but Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige did touch base on the studio’s current plans for Phase 4 and beyond.

More News From The Web

To date, Infinity War – Part 2 is the latest McU tentpole to boast a release date of its own (May 3, 2019), and though the superhero slate is crammed full of exciting features between now and then, Feige noted that Marvel has effectively settled on which features will occupy those three aforementioned launch dates. Beyond that, though, it’s anyone’s guess.

Matt Damon Recaps Entire Bourne Trilogy In 90 Seconds Ahead Of Imminent Reboot

11 hours ago

Operation Treadstone. Blackbriar. David Webb. It’s fair to say that parsing the lore of one Jason Bourne can prove quite difficult, particularly if you haven’t checked in on Matt Damon’s elusive super-spy since Ultimatum in 2007.

Leave it to Damon, then, to get you up to speed on all things Jason Bourne by recapping Universal’s celebrated action franchise in 90 seconds or less. Quietly ignoring the mooted spinoff of Legacy, the series stalwart recounts the events of Identity, Supremacy and Ultimatum. It’s the CliffNotes version, essentially, and though we wouldn’t consider it an out-an-out alternative to marathoning all three movies, it’s a concise info dump for those who have forgotten some pertinent details in the intervening years.

Charlie Hunnam Rules Himself Out Of Pacific Rim 2

12 hours ago

Though he may have been attached to an early version of Pacific Rim 2 – perhaps when the sequel was tethered with the subtitle Maelstrom – Charlie Hunnam has officially ruled himself out of Steven S. DeKnight’s 2018 creature feature.

Chatting with Yahoo Movies regarding his title role in Guy Ritchie’s long-awaited King Arthur reboot (see the inspired Comic-Con trailer here), the Sons of Anarchy stalwart revealed that Raleigh Becket won’t feature in Legendary and Universal Pictures’ monstrous sequel after all.

Even throughout Pacific Rim 2‘s rocky foray into pre-production – at a time when Universal placed the follow-up on ice indefinitely – many assumed that the sequel would pick up the adventures of Beckett and Mako Mori (played by Rinko Kikuchi) as the squared off against a new wave of Kaiju. Then again, the addition of John Boyega cast doubt over that proposed narrative arc, now that The Force Awakens breakout is »

A Domestic Feud Brews In First Peek At Tom Ford Thriller Nocturnal Animals

12 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

Picture the scene: A happily-married woman, Susan (Amy Adams), inadvertently opens up the door to her past upon reading a manuscript titled Nocturnal Animals.

Hailing from an ex-husband (Jake Gyllenhaal) that she severed contact with some seven years ago, it’s the content of said script that really causes Susan’s skin to crawl, chronicling a family under siege by hoodlums on the highway late at night. The question then becomes, is it a harbinger of things to come?

That is, essentially, the elevator pitch to Nocturnal Animals, Tom Ford’s latest feature and the director’s first since A Single Man back in 2009. Pegged to land in the awards-friendly corridor of November, Entertainment Weekly has today peeled back the curtain on that domestic feud, as Gyllenhaal has a run-in with the law and Amy Adams, housed up safely in her home, ponders the unnerving situation at hand. »

Doctor Strange Will Steer The McU Into The Multiverse, Benjamin Bratt Listed On Casting Lineup

13 hours ago

With its impressive, Inception-esque CGI and shots of realities unfolding like origami, Doctor Strange‘s most recent trailer drove home the point that, yes, Marvel’s latest spinoff is poised to steer the McU into the Quantum Realm and beyond.

Echoing that overarching narrative was director Scott Derrickson, who solicited questions during a panel at last weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con.

More News From The Web

It was here where the filmmaker touched base on the inherent themes of spiritualism and mysticism that will underpin the upcoming offshoot, and why Doctor Strange can herald the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse. Mark it, folks.

“What the comics did was, they brought with Doctor Strange an extra dimension into psychedelia, mysticism, and spirituality and all these very 60’s things and broke open the Marvel comic book universe into the Marvel multiverse. I think Doctor Strange is going to be the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse. »

Latest Ben-Hur Trailer Offers A New Spin On The “Greatest Story Ever Told”

13 hours ago

You’d be forgiven for losing track of Paramount Pictures and MGM’s grand Ben-Hur reboot. Set for release long after Independence Day: Resurgence, Star Trek Beyond and Warner’s Suicide SquadTimur Bekmambetov’s long-gestating reboot is all but set to cap off the summer blockbuster season next month, but there hasn’t been an awful lot of fanfare to trumpet its arrival.

Hoping to stoke excitement today is an all-new, minute-long trailer for Ben-Hur that chronicles Paramount’s modern redo of one of the greatest stories ever told. Taking point as the titular, disgraced prince and merchant, Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) stages the comeback to end all comebacks in the snippet above, as he plots revenges on his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), who framed our title hero for a crime he didn’t commit.

Zhu Releases “Hometown Girl” Leading Up To Debut Album

13 hours ago

Zhu fans are counting down the days until the Los Angeles DJ/producer drops his debut album, Generationwhy, and thankfully, he’s offered up something to tide them over in the meantime. Not too long ago he shared one of the album’s richest sonic dreamscapes titled “Palm of My Hand,” and he’s now followed it up with the markedly more upbeat “Hometown Girl.”

For the avant-garde fusion between house and hip-hop that Zhu usually puts out, “Hometown Girl” makes for an unexpected departure. The easygoing guitar licks and lighthearted lyrics fit it for radio – except for a more experimental, dance-y section at the very end.

While Zhu was presumably under label pressure to write a radio single for Generationwhy, “Hometown Girl” makes for the weakest release that has trickled out early so far. Fortunately for him, his misses are a typical producer’s hits, so that’s not »

8 Big Reveals From The Flash Season 3 Trailer

14 hours ago

Without any disrespect to the other comic book shows that are due back later this year, the most anticipated new superhero season is surely The Flash. Apart from being a very consistent show with strong fan support, we can’t wait for it to return because the series threw a big spanner in the works in its season two finale.

If you need reminding, it saw Barry Allen go back in time and save his mother’s life, thereby wiping the entire continuity of the show clean. This immediately made clear that the next season would adapt “Flashpoint,” the popular comic book storyline that kickstarted the New 52 timeline in 2011. But how would the series tackle it?

Well, now we have a much better idea of what to expect. Thanks to this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, we have our first look at the new season in a fist-pumpingly exciting trailer, »
