    • C.W Crossover "Elseworlds" Leads to Superman Spin-Off Series? | I.G TV News

      8 months ago


      ****** Our video if you don't want to read

      CW has been DC and W.B's main platform for their most popular television up until the release of their own streaming service, and with the fan-favourite crossovers coming up titled "Elseworlds" we could be seeing a new spin-off and it's not Batwoman, but yes she is still getting her own.

      Reported by FandomWire, CW is planning to put Tyler Hoechlin's Superman in a more prominent role in their DC lineup. The crossover Elseworlds will act as a test run to see if Superman could successfully stand alongside Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and all the other heroes. That being said, FandomWire makes sure to note that there has yet been a set in stone conformation saying, "We want to make it clear that just because something is in development, doesn’t necessarily mean that the project will come to fruition. However, a project like this, assuming the crossover is well received, is likely to become a reality."

      Tyler Hoechlin's version of Superman first appeared in the first two episodes of Supergirl during season two. Unlike Cavil's Superman who DC portrayed as a darker, more gritty interpretation, CW's man of steel resembled the original, being brighter and more friendly to the people. It is believed the reason Superman had such a limited appearance in the CW is that they wanted Supergirl to mainly focus on Kara and W.B had Justice League coming out. As shown before, the studio does not like having a character on both the big and small screen with Flash being the only acceptation, for now.


    • Alec Baldwin LEAVES the Solo Joker Movie

      ****** video of post w/ discussion in the end

      The recent report of actor Alec Baldwin playing the role of Thomas Wayne, father of Bruce Wayne aka Batman in the upcoming origin movie Joker has just been undone by Baldwin himself after he announced to USA Today his departure from the film.

      Baldwin blames scheduling issues for having to step down and says "I'm sure there are 25 guys who can play that part,".

      Along with Baldwin, Robert De Niro, actress Zazie Beetz, and actor Marc Maron have been recently announced to play major roles within the movie. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker and will be directed and co-written by Todd Phillips director of "Hangover".

      Reports have surfaced about Baldwin's version of Thomas Wayne. In the comics and the Dark Knight Trilogy, Thomas was often seen as a caring, selfless father and cunning businessman who put the city of Gotham first. The film's iteration of Thomas would have him be a cheesy, tanned businessman. If you're a fan of Baldwin then you probably recognize that the actor portrays a version of this character on SNL when playing Donald Trump.

      Baldwin quickly killed any assumptions on Twitter, saying: "Let me state, for the record, that I have NOT been hired to play a role in Todd Phillips’ JOKER as some Donald Trump manque. That is not happening. Not. Happening."

      For those wondering where's Jared Leto, the actor who played another version of the Joker in DC's Suicide Squad, he is still continuing to play his character in ANOTHER Joker film. Warner Bros. had come out and explained that Phoenix version of the Joker will be separate from Jared. How? The multiverse. Why? Because DC.


    • The Big Bang Theory is Coming to an End | I.G TV News

      10 months ago



      On August 23rd, Jim Parsons released a public letter disclosing that The Big Bang Theory, one of the most popular sitcoms of the last decade, will be coming to an end.

      "It is hard (nearly impossible actually) to really accept that this is a picture of the first of the final 24 episodes we will shoot for The Big Bang Theory. I feel very fortunate that we have another 23 episodes to shoot this season because I am hopeful that with each and every one, my level of REALLY accepting this fact will sink in. Something else I feel grateful for - and this gratitude needs no time to "sink in" or becoming more "realized;" this grateful feeling is always with me but is multiplied in this moment of us announcing our final season - but I feel such intense gratitude for our devoted viewers who are the ACTUAL reason we have been graced with the opportunity to explore these characters for 12 years of our lives.

      I feel grateful to our crew - many, many of whom have been with us since day one - and who are the people who bring a sense of steadiness and dependability, who are so warm and kind and always quick to say hello and smile at us every time we come to the set and who, even though you don't see them on TV, are in many ways the real and steady heartbeat that keeps this body of work alive and breathing while we, like flailing arms and legs, act like jackasses and fools in attempt to make someone laugh.

      I am grateful to all the writers of the show - those with us now and those that have come and gone - because, without them, there would literally be no Big Bang Theory at all, ever. The writers thought of this show, the writers created these characters, the writers are the ones who found ways to keep coming up with organic, entertaining ways to keep the life of this show going which is a task much, much more challenging than anyone other than them will ever know or understand.

      And while I know that they already know it, it bears repeating again and again: I am so terribly grateful for the cast in this picture and the cast members who aren't pictured here - whether they were in one scene or many episodes along the way; you are all my playmates that I have fallen in love with and who have become a part of my life on set and off. You are my playmates when we don't feel like playing but have to because it's our job to get out there and communicate and pretend we're these other fictional people and we look into each other's eyes and say these words and end up creating this weird, other reality that has enriched my life more than I will ever fully understand. I will miss of all you and all of this more than I can say and more than I can know at this time."

      The Big Bang Theory has received immense critical acclaim over its 11 year run, winning 46 Emmy nominations, though winning only nine. Audiences meanwhile have been more divided on the show, especially in the later seasons when the show struggled to remain as fresh as it was at the beginning, as well as criticisms aimed towards the pop-culture centered style of humor. Despite the growing divisiveness over the show, it still raked in the ratings, and even when the previous season floundered, the ratings remained strong.

      As Entertainment Weekly reports, the biggest reason for the show's sudden ending came down to contractual disputes, specifically those of Jim Parsons. Parsons, known for playing the series favorite, Sheldon Cooper, turned down a contract renewal to play the character for an additional two years that would have made him $50 million. The executives believed that without Sheldon, there is no Big Bang Theory, and thus, the upcoming twelfth season will be the show's last.

      The executives are certainly right about the show not being able to function without Sheldon. While audience opinion of him became divided over the series' decade long run, he is still the most recognizable character on the show. However, given that Parsons has portrayed the character for over a decade, it is understandable why he would want to leave the role. Not many actors can play the same character for as long as Parsons had.

      The final season of Big Bang Theory is set to premiere September 24th, 2018


    • Bruce Campbell Is Reprising His Role as Ash Williams For Upcoming Evil Dead Video Game | I.G Game News

      10 months ago



      Bruce Campbell has spent nearly 40 years of his life portraying the beloved Evil Dead star, Ash Williams. The horror-comedy series has amassed an impressive cult following who were able to keep the series alive for decades. After the recent cancellation of the popular Starz TV show, Ash vs Evil Dead, Campbell claimed that this would be the last time he would portray the chainsaw-handed Deadite slayer, to the disappointment of many fans.

      However, in May of this year, when asked if he would be portraying the character in other medium, Campbell replied that there are "upcoming iterations" of the series in the works. In an interview with Bloody-Disgusting, Campbell clarified that he would be portraying Ash Williams in an upcoming video game based on Evil Dead.

      "I have previous obligations I have to fulfill. They are doing a video game. A whole immersive kind of dealio. I’ll be Ash for that, because I wouldn’t want someone else’s voice hamming it up."

      There is no word on what this video game will be like or even who is publishing it. All that is known is that Campbell will be attached to it.

      The Evil Dead series certainly has a history with video games, most famously a trilogy of games released over the early-to-mid 2000s consisting of Hail to the King, A Fistful of Boomstick, and Regeneration. None of the games were spectacular, in fact, Hail to the King has a 49/100 on Metacritic, Fistful sits at 55, and Regeneration possesses an average 69.

      Interestingly, Campbell's wording implies that he may be contractually obligated to be in the video game, and that he might appear in other works in the Evil Dead universe.


    • Bethesda on how They Plan to Deal with Griefers in Fallout 76 | I.G Gaming News

      11 months ago


      ****** video of post with discussion at the end

      Information on Bethesda Studio's upcoming MMORPG, Fallout 76 had come out during QuakeCon.

      While explaining how skill points work with S.P.E.C.I.A.L stats and the ability to quickly rebuild your base after a nuke strike from other players, gamers all over were more curious to see how the game will allow them to reprimand other players who kill them without purpose. And I don't mean just a quick one shot kill and never see them again, but griefers.

      Griefers for those who don't know is a gaming term for players who constantly harass other players just for the fun of it. Seeing as Fallout 76 will have us in servers where running into other players is a possibility, it's obvious that there will be some checks and balances in place.

      While some players would easily just try to nuke an enemy player's settlement, it's actually more of a hassle to go spend hours, maybe days, to find a deterrent for a player who might not even be around once you've gotten your W.M.D. You can also simply block a player, but when's the last time we've ever done that? The final action you can take is after you're killed you may place a bounty on the player which will reward the hunter with resources previously collected by the bounty.

      Fallout 76 will launch on November 14 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and as a exclusive for the PC, with the pre-release beta scheduled sometime in October.


    • Venom Will Not be in Insomniac Game's Spider-Man | I.G Game News

      1 year ago


      ***>***video form of post with discussion

      A quick update to one of the PS4's most highly anticipated games Spider-Man came from Twitter. On July 1st, Jacinda Chew, art director for Insomniac Games, responded to a tweet asking about the long-time villain, Venom. Chew's response was "Too big to fit into #SpiderManPS4", removing all hope for fans to see one of the web slinger's most iconic foes.

      During E3 we saw a major level within the game where Spider-Man faces off against, what I see as a teaser to the Sinister Six: Electro, Vulture, Rhino, Scorpion, Mr. Negative, and a hidden character, which adds them to list of villains that the game insinuates you've fought or will fight. This does make the game's world feel larger as with each reveal, we see more and more iconic characters grace the game.

      Venom is a different case, however. Though not in this game, the character did act as the major game, "Spider-Man: Webb of Shadows" which showed that Venom is on another level entirely. Spider-Man is a street level hero, and as of right now, he seems to only be fighting street level villains. That being said, one of the best comments to Chew's tweet said it best. "Too big to fit into #SpiderManPS4"...

    • Famed Sci-Fi Writer, Harlan Ellison, Dead at 84 | I.G Obituary

      1 year ago


      ***>*** video form of post

      Harlan Ellison, creator of the famed science fiction stories such as A Boy and His Dog and "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream," and writer for many classic television shows such as Star Trek, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Babylon 5, and The Outer Limits, has passed away on June 28th at the age of 84. He passed away in his sleep according to his fifth wife, Susan Ellison. Ellison had no children over his five marriages.

      Ellison is quite the interesting character in the science fiction community. His short stories are among the best in the genre and he is often credited for writing "The City on the Edge of Forever," often considered the best episode of the original Star Trek series, but he also possessed a hair trigger temper and never let go of a grudge. His most famous grudge would be against Gene Roddenberry, creator of Star Trek, for refusing to not credit him after rewriting his script for the episode. Ellison claimed that the rewrites ruined his story, and saw getting credited as an insult. Indeed, Ellison would never let this go, to the point he wrote a nearly 70 page essay criticizing Roddenberry.

      Despite his temperament and abrasiveness, there is no denying his sheer influence on science fiction as a whole. "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream" remains one of the best horror sci-fi stories in the genre, and is also demonstrative of Ellison's way with words; the story is only about 6,000 words and yet contains some of the most powerful and haunting language ever devised. The story would later serve as the inspiration for the classic point-and-click game, widely regarded as one of the best horror games out there. Ellison himself played a role in the game itself, as the insane computer torturing the last surviving humans. Of course, his other stories have remained influential as well. A Boy and His Dog for example made its mark on post-apocalyptic fiction and has inspired other works such as the Fallout series and Mad Max. Indeed, Ellison has every right to be considered one of science fiction's best authors.

      Ellison may have been a cantankerous fellow in life, but his stories will live on. As the man said himself, "For a brief time I was here, and for a brief time I mattered."




    • Overwatch Reveals Hero 28, 'Hammond' the Hamster! | I.G Game News

      1 year ago


      ***>*** video form of post

      It didn't take long for the team over at Blizzard to release a teaser of Hero 28 from one of the most popular MMO FPS games, Overwatch.

      For the past few days, Overwatch hinted to the reveal of the newest hero within the game, and the ball shown within a recent trailer. Now, on the Overwatch twitter, we get the first look at, possibly one of the cutest, characters that have blessed the field. The character, currently believed to be Hammond aka Wrecking Ball, is a missing highly intelligent animal, hamster, from the Horizon Lunar Colony.

      For those unfamiliar with the lore of Overwatch, the Horizon Lunar Colony was the home of Winston, a giant, super-intelligent ape that acts as a playable character in the game. At some point, the colony's inhabitants, the other animals, staged a coup and ended up killing most, if not all, Humans there. Winston and Hammond are said to be the only ones who managed to escape back to Earth.

      Hammond was said to have landed in Junkertown, which Junkrat and Roadhog helm from. This could explain why Hammond has a similar aesthetic to the two


    • Jeremy Irons Cast in HBO's Watchmen | I.G TV News

      1 year ago


      As if he can't get enough of the live-action comic book life, actor Jeremy Irons has been cast in a lead role in Damon Lindelof's Watchmen. This places Irons with Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens and Andrew Howard.

      Irons played Alfred Pennyworth in the DCEU, stealing each scene he played in, which is amazing due to the fact Ben Affleck's Batman usually stood in the shot.

      As of now, there's no information on who Iron's could be playing as nobody's role has yet been revealed, and the fact that this is an entirely new version of the Watchmen makes it hard to actually say if the actual characters created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons are gonna to have actual roles. For example, the original story took place around the Vietnam war era, however, this show will take place in present day, but still in the same world.

      There's currently no premiere date for the show.


    • Resident Evil 2 Remake Gameplay Details Revealed | I.G Gaming News

      1 year ago


      ***>*** video form of post w/ discussion

      After years of radio silence regarding the remake of Resident Evil 2, a trailer was finally released during this week's E3. The trailer didn't show much in the way of gameplay, instead showing the game's cutscenes. They were promising to be sure, and the game is shaping up to be just as scary if not more than Resident Evil's best.

      Recently however, GameSpot recorded footage of a demo for Resident Evil 2 and recounted how the game felt and what to expect.

      Unlike the much-lauded remake of the original Resident Evil, REmake 2 isn't going to have the original fixed cameras and tank controls, rather going for a Resident Evil 4 feel. The game will have an over-the-shoulder view and will feature the aiming system of the majority of the over-the-shoulder games have.

      Some fans might have reservations about this decision; after all, most of the Resident Evil games with this view and feel haven't been all that scary, especially 5 and 6. However, judging by the gameplay footage, REmake 2 isn't going to skimp on the atmosphere and scares. Despite the view and ability to aim, ammo will still be scarce much like the original game, so every shot still counts. Some aspects from the critically-acclaimed Resident Evil 7 are also present in the demo, namely the HUD and the inventory screen.

      What's interesting to note is that the game's tone is also much different from that of the original; RE2 is a famously cheesy game about on par with a B movie. The remake goes for a tone that is closer to RE7, in that it's more gruesome and somewhat grounded. Despite that, the team behind REmake 2 are still determined to include some of the more memorable moments from the original such as the giant alligator boss and the legendary side character, Tofu. The inclusion of Tofu will be especially interesting given the inherent silliness in playing a giant block of tofu. HUNK will also be making an appearance. It's too early to tell, but if HUNK and Tofu are returning, this could mean that REmake 2 will include the bonus modes and features the original RE2 is famous for.

      The remake of Resident Evil 2 is set to release on January 25, 2019.
