Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the latest game from the studio behind Dark Souls and Bloodborne, From Software.

Why Shazam Is DC's Most Fun Movie Yet

about X hours ago from

Shazam is DC's most fun movie yet--even more than Aquaman, which featured mer-men riding dinosaurs in large-scale underwater laser battles. That's saying something.

This kind of thing doesn't happen by accident. The tone of the early "DCEU" (or whatever we're calling it nowadays) seems to have spewed forth directly from Zack Snyder's gritty, color-desaturated brain--Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman are actually cited in the dictionary under the entry for whatever the polar opposite of "fun" is. Which isn't to say that approach is ineherently bad--many fans have enjoyed the Snyder-fied versions of these characters. But following relative hits like Wonder Woman and Aquaman, Shazam is the latest DC movie to benefit from the guidance of a director who knows how to inject a little more fun into this universe: David Sandberg.

Sandberg's previous directing credits include horror movies Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation. The Swedish director told GameSpot recently that he was excited to helm a movie with a lighter tone than what we've seen in the DC cinematic universe before.

Borderlands 3 Cross-Play Support Is Being Looked At, Says 2K

about X hours ago from

Although it hasn't been confirmed, 2K has announced that cross-play could be a possibility for Borderlands 3. The upcoming sequel to one of the studio's most popular franchises is scheduled to launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on September 13. The PC version will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store first, though, before also releasing on Steam in April 2020.

When asked about cross-play, a 2K spokesperson told GameSpot, "Cross-play is something we're looking at closely, but we don't have anything to confirm or announce at this time." Cross-play support for Borderlands 3 was seemingly announced when the Microsoft Store listing of the game advertised the feature under the game's Capabilities section. However, cross-play support has since been removed from the store listing.

Marvel's Black Widow Movie Casts David Harbour, Rachel Weisz - Report

about X hours ago from

Although no more movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been announced beyond July's Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next phase of the MCU is taking shape behind-the-scenes. One film that is definitely happening is the long-awaited Black Widow movie. It's set to start shooting this year, and now two big names are reportedly being lined up to star alongside Scarlett Johansson.

According to Variety, Rachel Weisz and Stranger Things star David Harbour are both in talks to play roles in Black Widow. The site states that deals have not been made for either actor yet, but that Weisz will play a "key role" and that there is "strong interest from both sides of negotiations."

Weisz is best known for movies such as this year's Oscar-nominated The Favourite, The Bourne Legacy, and the 1999 film of The Mummy. Harbour will next be seen in the reboot of Hellboy, which releases this month, and returns for Stranger Things Season 3 in July.
