Netflix Producing A Live-Action Avatar: The Last Airbender Series

Netflix Producing A Live-Action Avatar: The Last Airbender Series

The well-loved and critically-acclaimed 2005 Nickelodeon cartoon series Avatar: The Last Airbender is getting a live-action reimagining on Netflix, the streaming company announced today.

All that exists alongside the announcement is a single piece of concept art showing a silhouetted Aang petting his air bison Appa in an icy field. It is likely that the project is extremely nascent and the deal was only recently signed, so a product probably won't arrive for a few years.

The cartoon series spawned a movie directed by Sixth Sense director M. Night Shamylan in 2010, which was financially successful but infamously critically panned. Shamylan tried to tone down the series' humor for the movie but ultimately was unsuccessful in his goal.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Releasing Next Month On PC, Consoles In December

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Releasing Next Month On PC, Consoles In December

A few weeks ago, Witcher developers CDProjekt Red announced that they were separating Gwent's single-player campaign out from the card game's client as a standalone release titled Thronebreaker. Since details were so scarce, not many expected that the excision would be quite so prompt, with CDPR confirming an October 24 release date for PC and a console release on December 4.

Thronebreaker was developed to be the single-player campaign for Gwent, itself spun-off from the side activity in the Witcher III: The Wild Hunt. According to CDPR, the campaign got too big to simply be a side thing for Gwent and is being released with "The Witcher Tales" as a subtitle. It is unclear if this means a new brand categorization that allows for further spin-offs within the Witcher universe.

Gwent itself is coming out of beta on October 23 on PC, one day ahead of Thronebreaker, and the same day as Thronebreaker on consoles.

If Bard’s Tale IV Is A Hit, Brian Fargo Will Buy Back Interplay

The founder of inXile studios, Brian Fargo, recently tweeted out that he’d buy back the studio he co-founded in 1983 if The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep sells over two million copies in 18 months.

In an interview with Variety, Fargo said that he was entirely serious about the idea stating that “fans have been requesting me to bring back my old Interplay games for years and this would be the most amazing way to make that happen.”

Going bankrupt and then announcing that it would be selling off its IP in 2016, Interplay introduced the world to such acclaimed titles as Fallout and Baldur’s Gate.

Captain Marvel Takes To The Skies In First Trailer

Captain Marvel Takes To The Skies In First Trailer

Captain Marvel was teased in the final moments of Avengers: Infinity War. After witnessing a world-ending event, Nick Fury activated a beacon set within a pager that looked like it was preserved in a time capsule from the 1980s. Captain Marvel's logo appears on the screen. If she's an ally of S.H.I.E.L.D., and has been around for decades, where has she been all of this time? We're about to find out when her standalone film, Captain Marvel, hits theaters on March 8, 2019.

You can take your first look at this period piece that details Captain Marvel's origin story. The trailer focuses heavily on her human life as Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson), and teases all is not as it seems. Danvers apparently has a different life tied to the Kree empire. In a shot we see her on the Kree homeworld of Hala, and in her Kree Starforce uniform. The Skrulls and Ronan the Accuser are also teased.

Marvel put together a hell of a trailer to introduce this powerful character into Marvel's Cinematic Universe. This film can't come soon enough. The wait for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel is too long. We need a Marvel fix, stat!
