Everything Captain Marvel Reveals About Nick Fury And The Avengers

The clues are everywhere.

Not only did Captain Marvel provide a retro-origin story for Carol Danvers herself--it also took a deep dive into the history of both Nick Fury and the Avengers Initiative. Sure, there are still plenty of questions left unanswered about the untold stories surrounding the MCU's shadowy past, but at the very least we can start putting some of the pieces together and getting some answers--hell, we've even got some answers to questions we wouldn't have thought to ask in the first place.

Do you know what Nick Fury's taste in music is like? How about his middle name? Don't worry, because you're about to. (Beware, there are spoilers ahead.)

Sure, it may seem inconsequential written out like that, but we're heading straight for Avengers: Endgame in a matter of weeks, so every little bit counts, no matter how small--and make no mistake, some of it is very, very small.

Of course details about Fury and the idea for the Avengers aren't the only things to come out of Captain Marvel--go check out what those major Skrull changes could mean, where the Tesseract has been, what's going on with Goose the cat, and what actually happened in the post-credits scenes. Then, once you've brushed up on all your facts and figures, start working on polishing up your Endgame theories.

Rainbow Six-Style FPS Ready Or Not Gets Extended Gameplay Trailer

about X hours ago from

After months of silence, developer Void Interactive has released a lengthy gameplay trailer for its upcoming Rainbow Six-like shooter, Ready or Not. The video, which you can watch above, provides our first extended look at the gameplay, which is strongly reminiscent of the SWAT series.

Ready or Not is billed as a "realistic tactical shooter" that's "set against the backdrop of political and economic instability in the United States." The game casts players in the role of Judge, a SWAT solider "tasked with defusing tense, hostile situations in a morally bankrupt city."

Void Interactive had previously confirmed that Ready or Not will feature both competitive and cooperative modes, as well as a single-player mode. In the latter, the developer says players will be able to command their AI teammates using either an on-screen interface or with voice commands through the game's "finely tuned speech recognition system."

Captain Marvel spoilers below!

Captain Marvel is a fun adventure movie starring Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as the titular hero as she romps around 1990s Earth on a mission to discover her past against the backdrop of the Kree-Skrull war. It's Marvel's first big screen adventure starring a female superhero front and center, and it's a solid movie in its own right, even if it feels weird to be watching it with little more than a month to go until the MCU as we know it comes to an end in Avengers: Endgame.

But! Captain Marvel isn't a standalone work. Despite being a prequel set years before most of the other MCU movies, it ties in with the rest of the series in countless ways. Case in point: the Tesseract, which actually plays a major role in Captain Marvel.

There are Captain Marvel spoilers past this point, so tread lightly if you haven't watched the latest MCU movie yet!

The Tesseract went on quite a journey in the MCU to get from the original Captain America movie all the way to Thanos's gauntlet in Avengers: Infinity War. Along the way, it turns out, it played a big role in the events of the 1990s, including Air Force pilot Carol Danvers gaining her powers and becoming Captain Marvel. For a full breakdown of how the Infinity War went from Red Skull's grip to Thanos's glove, read on!

20 Old Cartoons That Only Existed To Sell Toys


The golden age of Saturday morning cartoons is an era that will always live on in our memories. After all, who didn't sit down with a bowl of cereal to follow the newest adventures of GI Joe, Transformers, or any number of other series to kick off their weekend as kids?

Here's something you might not have realized, though. As it turns out, way too many of those amazing cartoons were created as nothing more than marketing tools for toys. Some of the shows made perfect sense, as action-based toy lines left plenty of room for stories to be told. Others, however, had to reach pretty far to work a storyline into what was otherwise a pretty basic and story-free line of toys.

Take a look at our favorite toy-based cartoons below, then sound off with the ones you loved in the comments. And when you're done, make sure to check out our look at cartoons based movies. You might be surprised at some of the very adult movies that got a kid-friendly adaptation.

Devil May Cry 5: There's A Hidden Weapon That's Very Easy To Miss

Devil May Cry 5: There's A Hidden Weapon That's Very Easy To Miss

The Legendary Bounty Hunter Dante has a massive arsenal of weapons in Devil May Cry 5. Along with his old favorites including Rebellion and his twin handguns, he'll also find new armaments including a demonic hat that uses red orbs as ammunition, and a powerful motorcycle that transforms into massive chainsaw swords. However, there's one weapon in the game that can be very easy to miss, opening up access to a set of firearms, that when combined together, form one of the game's most powerful guns.

For some background, one of the weapons that Dante will acquire later in the game (and seen in the many trailers) is the Kalina Ann II--a heavily modified rocket launcher that was specially built for the bounty hunter Lady. The original Kalina Ann was also a weapon that Dante could use in Devil May Cry 3. The second version of the weapon was intended as a replacement, after the original was lost in a battle. The souped up Kalina Ann II can fire off powerful missiles and mini-rockets, causing serious damage to all surrounding enemies. However, if you didn't find it already, there's a way to track down and acquire the original Kalina Ann in one of the earlier missions.

The Division 2's Release Is Adopting An Anthem-Style Launch Schedule

Ubisoft has announced that, much like BioWare's Anthem, its upcoming loot-focused shooter, The Division 2, will release at different times depending on which version of the game you pre-order. If you go through Uplay, you can get access to the game at different times too.

If you pre-order the standard version of The Division 2, the game will be available worldwide for Xbox One and PS4 on March 15 at 12 AM local time--therefore Australia and New Zealand get access first and North and South America are last. With Uplay, on PC, The Division 2 will be playable on March 14 at 10 PM PT, which is March 15 at 1 AM ET. The Uplay playable time is 11 PM in the UK on March 14 and 12 AM in Australia on March 15. So only in certain regions does Uplay give you early access. A breakdown of the times is listed below.

If you pre-order the Gold or Ultimate Edition of The Division 2, you'll get the game even earlier. Worldwide, these two editions launch March 12 at 12 AM local time when you pre-order the Xbox One or PS4 versions, which once again gives certain countries earlier access than others. Through Uplay, The Division 2 Gold and Ultimate Editions are playable March 11 at 10 PM PT, March 12 at 1 AM ET, March 11 at 11 PM in the UK, and March 12 at 12 AM in Australia. A breakdown of the times is listed below.

Dark Souls And Bloodborne Dev Reveals An Interest In Creating Live Service Games

about X hours ago from

From Software has taken an interest in live service games--specifically those that exist in the battle royale genre. Although the developer wants to remain focused on single-player games for now--such as the upcoming Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice--From Software isn't discounting the possibility of making a multiplayer-focused title one day.

"There's always the possibility," From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki said in an interview with The Telegraph. "These games are definitely fun. And we're interested in the patterns they are taking. If we did it, it might be a bit different! But we're definitely interested and there's definitely that possibility in the future. We'd love to take a crack at them some day."

Miyazaki added that he hopes video games don't become entirely multiplayer-focused live service titles. "We do need this diversity in the industry," Miyazaki sad. "Regardless of what From Software is doing, we need people making battle royale games and live services and we need people making single-player focussed experiences. We feel that this diversity is what will keep everyone going."
