The Next Four Avatar Movies Reportedly Have Titles

Remember when Avatar was the biggest thing in the world and you couldn't escape the blue people and mentions of 3D movie theaters? The people behind the movie remember, which is why there's four more movies currently scheduled. While there were assumptions they would just be called Avatar 2, 3, etc., it seems like James Cameron is going with unique titles for each movie.

According to a Tweet from the movie ticketing site Fandango, which itself sources the BBC, the titles are The Way of Water, The Seed Bearer, The Tulkun Rider, and The Quest for Eywa.

More Blizzard Merchandise Announced With New Mercy Figure And Uniqlo Collaboration

Blizzard is in the business of selling video games and selling merchandise related to those video games and BlizzCon every year is a big opportunity to introduce new announcements in both. This year, Blizzard has a running list of various new collaborations, including a number of new Overwatch ones.

The Mercy figure comes from Hasbro and is the first figure in the "Ultimates" line coming next Spring. This means that you'll have some Overwatch heroes to put on your shelf if the Nendoroids or LEGO Playsets are not quite doing it for you.

Lifestyle and fashion brand Her Universe will also be collaborating with Blizzard on Overwatch and Warcraft merchandise, which includes Hot Topic. And if you didn't realize that Hot Topic and Reaper were made for each other before now, Blizzard is out to convince you.

Lego Reveals The First Series Of Overwatch Sets

Get to the payload! At today's Blizz Con, Lego revealed the first series of Overwatch sets slated to release in January 2019. With prices ranging from $14.99 to $89.99, these packs depict battles from the game, each coming with a number of heroes shrunk down to minifigure size.

The six sets in series one are Tracer vs. Widowmaker, Hanzo vs. Genji, Dorado Showdown, D.Va and Reinhardt, Bastion, and Watchpoint: Gibraltar. Along with the heroes mentioned in the set titles, you'll also see minifigures for Mercy, Pharah, Winston, Reaper, McCree, and Soldier 76 included some of the boxes. Oddly, there's also a figure for a Shimada henchman. The box art also shows some of the heroes riding inside of the payloads – something I wish I could do to avoid dying so much.

You can take a look at all of the sets in the viewer above. If you listen closely, you can almost hear the minifigures complaining about a lack of healing.

Blizzard Announces A Wild New Overwatch Hero Named Ashe

Blizzard Announces A Wild New Overwatch Hero Named Ashe

At this year's Blizz Con, Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan entered an arena filled with roaring fans to announce two new things: an animated short named "Reunion," which focuses on McCree, and the game's 29th hero named Ashe, who throws down with McCree in the animated short. Ashe is unique in that she is joined by a robot named B.O.B. That's right, B.OB. can be summoned mid-battle as an ultimate.

Ashe appears to be a mid-range DPS hero who can snipe enemies from afar and use the sheer force of her gun to propel herself high in the air. She can also throw dynamite to take down threats close range. When Ashe activates her ultimate, B.O.B. runs into the fray, uppercuts foes, and can mow down more of them with his arm, which transforms into a chaingun. We don't know how long B.O.B. will be on the battlefield, but he looks like he can deal serious damage.

No announcements were made regarding when we can see Ashe in the game, but if Blizzard holds true to the most recent hero reveals, she should be entering PTR on PC in the coming weeks.
