Logan Trailer

Here’s our first look at Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine. While it looks somewhat inspired by the Old Man Logan storyline, it looks like most of its inspiration comes from Clint Eastwood westerns and Mad Max. It’s definitely a different take on the superhero genre and could be fitting for Wolverine’s last hurrah. We also get a glimpse of Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier, Boyd Holbrook as villain Donald Pierce, and a little girl that some believe could be X-23. Check it out and tell us what you think.

SDCC 2016 – Ghost Rider Comes to Agents of Shield Season 4

The rumors have been officially confirmed. Gabriel Luna (True Detective, Matador) will be taking the role of Robbie Reyes, a.k.a the Ghost Rider on Agents of Shield this forthcoming season. For those who don’t read the comics, Robbie Reyes is the most recent person to take the mantle of the spirit of vengeance. After losing his parents, Reyes lives along with his younger brother Gabe. When he is gunned down by gangbangers, Reyes becomes the Ghost Rider after being bonded with the spirit of Eli Morrow, a victim of gang violence. Rather than using a motorcycle like his predecessors, Reyes instead drives a souped-up muscle car. Instead of having a flaming skull, he wears a skull helmet that’s on fire.

If you’re disappointed that Ghost Rider is a character on Agents of Shield, remember, Reyes isn’t the only Ghost Rider in the comics, and it’s still possible for Marvel to make a movie or Netflix series with the original Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze (and of course Nick Cage would be nowhere near it this time). While Ghost Rider is an odd choice for Agents of Shield, but then again so were Deathlok and the Inhumans, and they fit quite nicely. It’s great to see Marvel TV dip more into the comics to supplement Agents of Shield.

Legion Headed to FX in Early 2017

legion

While Agent Carter and Marvel’s Most Wanted have been canceled, next year will see at least one new Marvel character hit the small screen. An 8 episode season of the X-men spinoff Legion has been ordered by FX, and it will be produced as a joint effort between Fox and Marvel Studios. With showrunner Noah Hawley (Fargo) at the helm, Legion stars Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as the title character, who in the comics is the illegitimate son of professor Charles Xavier. He’s a mutant with multiple personality disorder, and each personality has it’s own power. Longtime Marvel fans know he’s responsible for not one, but two Alternate realities, the Age of Apocalypse, and the Age of X. It remains to be seen how this is incorporated in the show. The status of Marvel and Fox’s other show, Hellfire, is up in the air as it’s two showrunners, Evan Katz and Manny Coto departed to work on 24 Legacy.

$20 Game of the Week: Lego Marvel Super Heroes

lego_marvel_cover

With Captain America and the X-men having made their way back into theaters last month, now is a good time to look at one of the finest digital adventures featuring Marvel’s pantheon of heroes and villains. Before licencing issues would force Marvel to disavow the existence of any property whose movie rights were controlled by Fox, and before the company’s gaming department chose to focus on free-to-play mobile games, Marvel fans of all ages were treated to an excellent look at the Marvel Universe, Lego style, courtesy of Warner Brothers and Traveler’s Tales. Waitaminute….Warner Brothers? As in DC Warner Brothers? Well it’s simple. Warner Brothers has the licence to publish Lego Games, Lego has a licence to make toys based on Marvel characters, so it was only a matter of time before this game was made, and it excels as both a Marvel game and a Lego game.

Disney Infinity and Microsoft Spark Cancellation and Analysis

gamegraveyear

This past week, we learned that Disney Infinity had been cancelled due to Disney Interactive’s decision to abandon console gaming. To add insult to injury, the company is closing down its internal studio Avalanche Software, leaving close to 300 people without work (hopefully not for long). This summer will see the release of two final playsets based upon Alice:Through the Looking Glass and Finding Dory. Even Worse, Microsoft decided to shutdown its Project Spark, the Xbox One and PC set of game creation tools that allowed users to create and upload games LittleBigPlanet style. Microsoft ended active development on the game back in September, releasing all the game’s dlc for free. As of August 12, the game will no longer have online access, as players will be unable to download content or upload to the cloud. The reason given for Project Spark’s cancellation was that most of the people involved with the project had moved on to other areas within Microsoft, it wasn’t feasible to continue supporting the project. Fortunately, unlike the last time Microsoft cancelled a big name game (Fable Legends) no studio was shutdown nor was anyone fired as a result. At any rate, this isn’t a good look for Microsoft, as this is at least the third title the company has cancelled (the first two being The Phantom Dust reboot and the aforementioned Fable Legends). Maybe we’ll hear about a replacement for Project Spark next month at E3.

As far as Disney Infinity, click after the jump to learn about scrapped plans, speculation, and possible reasons for cancellation.
