Hilarious Avengers Fan Trailer Recasts Movie With '90s Action Stars

about X hours ago from

Superhero movies obviously existed prior to the 21st century, but it was the likes of the first X-Men and Sam Raimi's Spider-Man at the start of the 2000s that helped make the genre the box office monster it is today. The current stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are some of the best known actors in the world, and it's hard to think of other performers in those roles.

But what if the superhero movie craze had happened a decade earlier? With the exception of three Batman movies and smaller films such as Blade, the 1990s were largely free of big screen superheroes, despite the number of hugely iconic actors associated with that decade. Luckily, thanks to YouTube fan-edit channel What's The Mashup, we now have an idea of what a '90s Avengers movie might have looked like.

The WTM team presents a trailer for the The Avengers in '90s style, complete with a dated VFX and a distinctive VHS look. Best of all, they have inserted some of the biggest stars of the time, using footage from other movies, and cast them as the Earth's Mightiest Heroes. So if you ever wanted to see Tom Cruise as Iron Man, Brad Pitt as Thor, or Sarah Michelle Gellar as Captain Marvel, here's your chance. There's more in there too--but we won't spoil the surprise of who has been cast as Captain America. Check it out below:

about X hours ago from

A new in-game event is now underway in Pokemon Go. Coinciding with the debut of Giratina Origin Forme, Niantic has kicked off the game's first Bug Out, a week-long event featuring increased Bug Pokemon spawns and other bonuses--including a new Shiny Pokemon.

From now until April 9, Bug-types such as Scyther, Paras, Wurmple, and Yanma will appear in the wild more frequently than normal. Not only that, but players will have their first chance to encounter a Shiny Scyther during the event, and Bug Pokemon like Shuckle and Ninjask will appear as Raid bosses.

In addition to increased Bug Pokemon spawns, Incenses will last twice as long as they normally do during the Bug Out event, and they'll attract more Pokemon than usual. Players will also be able to obtain special Field Research tasks focusing on Bug Pokemon from Poke Stops. You can read more details about the event on the Pokemon Go website.

Borderlands 3 Playable Characters: Skills, Abilities, And Backgrounds

Borderlands 3 is packed with several returning characters from all across the series. However, there are plenty of new faces too. After all, the series has made a tradition of offering new characters to play in each subsequent entry. The latest game's new troop of Vault Hunters is no exception, and each is armed with their own unique abilities, skill trees, and personalization options.

Below we detail everything we know about Borderlands 3's four playable characters. Be sure to check back often as we update this feature with more information as it gets announced. Though, if you'd like a breakdown of everything we know about Borderlands 3 in general, then read our in-depth roundup feature.

Moze the Gunner's main ability comes from her mech, Iron Bear, which instantly constructs around her when summoned. She's far more mobile than previous gunner-type classes, who often had to cater their strategies around stationary turrets. Another interesting feature of Moze's Iron Bear is that other teammates can hop onto it and use the turret mounted at its head. This adds what looks to be an emphasis on cooperation to Moze's playstyle. Although she seems well capable of defending herself, it seems she's much more dangerous and effective when a friend tags alongside her.

Gearbox Software has confirmed that Borderlands 3 will launch on September 13, 2019, as indicated by a leak earlier this week. The game will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Alongside the release date, Gearbox has also released a new trailer, which confirms that, at launch, the game will be distributed through the Epic Games Store on PC. Borderlands 3 will then come to additional PC digital storefronts in April 2020.

The trailer is a showcase of Borderland 3's gameplay and also introduces the Vault Hunters players will take control of as they hunt for loot, the legendary Vaults, and take on the fanatical Calypso Twins. Among them is Moze the Gunner, Amara the Siren, FL4K the Beastmaster, and Zane the Operative.

Moze is able to summon a mech which other players can mount, Amara can summon ethereal arms to brawl using, FL4K controls beasts--as his class name implies--and Zane is very handy for distracting enemies, slipping into combat, doing damage, and escaping.

Joker Trailer: Your First Look At Joaquin Phoenix's Take On This Classic Batman Villain

about X hours ago from

The first trailer for Joker is here. The upcoming DC universe film is the much-anticipated origin story movie about the Clown Prince of Crime and stars Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role. It will hit theaters on October 3.

As has been previously hinted, the trailer suggests that Joker is going to be quite unlike anything else the DC universe has released so far. It focuses on Phoenix's lonely, unstable Arthur, a stand-up comedian who clearly has trouble fitting into society. We see Phoenix being attacked on the street, visiting Arkham Hospital, and dressing up as a clown, while his voiceover hints at the dark criminal turn his life will soon take. Check it out above.

Joker is directed by Todd Phillips, who previously helmed the Hangover movies. This origin movie of Arkham Asylum's most famous resident also stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, and Marc Maron.
