Marvel Games Is Teasing Something Related To The Number 4

Marvel Games, the division of the entertainment giant responsible for video games, recently changed its logo on social media. The logo replaces the A in Games with a 4.

What does it all mean? Nothing is for sure at this stage, but one interesting rumour claims a big Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite update is coming that could re-brand the game as Marvel vs. Capcom 4. The "4" could also be a reference to Fantastic Four. Or maybe it's connected to Avengers, given that Avengers: Endgame is the fourth instalment in the series. For now, all of this is speculation, but we'll report back when official news drops.

In other news about Marvel Games ... errr Marvel G4mes, the company recently partnered with a team of former Blizzard developers to work on a brand-new Marvel mobile game. The title has yet to be officially announced, and another possibility is that the "4" has something to do with this new project. Marvel is good at surprising people and keeping them guessing, so it's also possible the "4" is related to something we haven't even thought about yet.

One Of The Best Songs From Red Dead Redemption 2 Is Now On Spotify

about X hours ago from

The song "Unshaken" by D'Angelo plays during a particularly memorable part of Red Dead Redemption 2, and now the tune has been released on Spotify and other platforms.

"Unshaken" is D'Angelo's first new release since 2014's LP Black Messiah. It's a ruminating, brooding song with a haunting and memorable chorus that gets stuck in your head. "May I stand unshaken / amid, amidst a crashing world."

Red Dead Redemption fans ripped the song from the game and posted it on YouTube and elsewhere. Additionally, the song was performed as part of a Red Dead Redemption 2 music medley at The Game Awards in December. However, this is the first time it has been released officially. You can listen to it right now on Spotify and other digital platforms.

Tony Hawk Almost Starred In A Looney Tunes "Skate Jam" Movie

about X hours ago from

The Space Jam movie from Warner Bros. was a big hit. The wacky basketball film from 1996 successfully mixed live-action and animation to bring together real people like Bill Murray and Michael Jordan and Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny and others.

It made more than $230 million worldwide, and this success no doubt encouraged Warner Bros. to move ahead with another film that mixed live-action with CG Looney Tunes characters, Looney Tunes: Back In Action. The 2003 film was a box office disappointment, however, making only $68 million against a reported production budget of $80 million.

Henry Cavill Will Stop At Nothing To Get Buff To Play Geralt In New Netflix Series

about X hours ago from

One of Netflix's new original shows is The Witcher, starring Superman actor Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia. Cavill is spending time in the gym to get buff for the role, and he appears to be very committed to getting into shape for the part of the monster-slayer.

In a post on Instagram from Hungary, Cavill said a little snow and a 2 kilometre hill aren't enough to keep him from getting to the gym for leg day. The image also shows that Cavill hasn't been skipping arm day, either. "It's a solid snow day here in Hungary and I live at the top of a 2km hill, but it's also leg day so I will have to trust in this lovely steed from Audi to get me to the gym in one piece!" he said. "Can't let a little slippery hill get in the way of me bringing you the best live action Witcher possible can I now."

Harry Potter: Witches And Wizards Used To Poop Themselves And Then Use Magic To Clean Up

about X hours ago from

While the mainline Harry Potter books are over and done with, more details about the wider magical universe continue to come to light. The latest reveal came from the Pottermore Twitter account, and it has to do with the way that witches and wizards peed and pooped. At one point in history, the magical school Hogwarts didn't have bathrooms. So what did witches and wizards do when they needed to relieve themselves?

Unsettlingly, they just peed and pooped themselves wherever they were standing, and then used magic to "vanish" the evidence. Hogwarts eventually, and probably for the best, decided to adopt the Muggle way of plumbing to allow for a more traditional bathroom experience. Hopefully "vanishing" the evidence also included wiping, but we don't know for sure. It's also unclear if this method of pooping and peeing was contained to Hogwarts, or if the entire magical world did their business in this manner.

Hogwarts didn't always have bathrooms. Before adopting Muggle plumbing methods in the eighteenth century, witches and wizards simply relieved themselves wherever they stood, and vanished the evidence. #NationalTriviaDay

about X hours ago from

Veteran actor Danny DeVito is joining the sequel to Jumanj: Welcome to the Jungle. Variety reported and actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson confirmed that DeVito will have a role in the film that's due out at the end of the year. The news about DeVito joining the sequel comes just days after it was reported that Awkwafina will also appear in the movie.

Plot details are being kept under wraps for the Jumanji sequel, and this includes details on who DeVito will play. But it appears DeVito will be among the people who get sucked into the Jumanji video game and become someone new once inside the game.

“The magic of Jumanji is who becomes who," The Rock told Variety. "And the idea of Danny DeVito joining our cast was too irresistible and something we knew we wanted to deliver to our audience this upcoming Christmas. Dwanta Claus loves everyone."

Writer Erik Wolpaw, who worked on a number of popular Valve games like Half-Life 2: Episode One and Episode Two, as well as Portal and the two Left 4 Dead games, is back working with the studio again. He confirmed to Polygon that he's returned to Valve as a contractor, not full time. His name was spotted in the credits for Valve's new Dota card game, Artifact, and Gabe Newell himself reportedly confirmed Wolpaw had returned.

Wolpaw was at Valve since 2004 before initially leaving in 2017. After leaving Valve, Wolpaw worked with Double Fine on Psychonauts 2. He's now back working with Valve again, but it's not clear what he's contributing to besides Artifact.

He told Polygon that he never really left Valve, as he's maintained his contractor agreement with Valve since he left the company in 2017. He's helping out with other writers Jay Pinkerton, Steve Jaros, and Sean Vanaman.
