DC Comic News: Director of ‘Suicide Squad’ Unveils The Joker for Character’s 75th Anniversary

Joker 25th

To celebrate the character’s 75th Anniversary, the director of the ‘Suicide Squad’ film David Ayer, chose to unveil Jared Leto’s official look for The Joker for the first time:

I really love this look, its modern, fresh and quite twisted. The only criticism I have is the ‘Damaged’ tattoo on the forehead which for me labels The Joker in a way that is too obvious. His actions, demeanour and presence should be all you need to know to understand that ‘something is not right’ with this character!

But it does end all the speculation about what Leto’s look will be like and is a refreshing take on the character for the big screen.

Video Game News: Telltale Games and MARVEL announce Partnership

Marvel_TTG_650px

Telltale games has overnight confirmed via their ‘Blog’ that they will be partnering with MARVEL in 2017 to produce video games. No further details on what the games will be but with ‘Phase 3′ of MARVEL’s big screen project now fully underway, it could be any number of films or TV shows such as ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ or on Netflix with ‘The Defenders’ such as Daredevil or Jessica Jones.

A simple statement was made on the release:

Announced this evening in San Francisco, we’re excited to reveal an all-new partnership with the incredible team at Marvel Entertainment. We’ll be teaming up on the development of an upcoming Telltale game series project set to premiere in 2017!

As always, stay tuned here for the latest news and details on this and all of our upcoming projects as they become available…

*My Thoughts

Very much excited to see what this partnership could produce, especially after the success of the ‘Game of Thrones: A Telltale Series’ game. I would expect to see it stick to the same episodic point and click style that Telltale is famous for making popular and with so many huge plans for both TV and cinema screens, games based on MARVEL phase 3 could be particularly epic. One to watch out for for sure…

Playstation 4 News: New Gameplay Trailer for ‘Mad Max’ Released

 

Mad Max Game

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Avalanche Studios today released the Mad Max Gameplay Overview Trailer for the Mad Max video game coming this autumn. Set in the post-apocalyptic future, the trailer provides a glimpse into the desperate struggle Max faces after losing it all – his family, his car, his sanity – and the steps he must take to survive in the harsh and desolate Wasteland. For the first time, players get an extended look at the deep car customization, metal grinding vehicular combat, brutal melee combat and a wide range of other activities they can engage in during their quest to build the ultimate survival vehicle, the Magnum Opus, and find solace in the Plains of Silence. All footage in the trailer is in-engine, comprised of actual game play and in-game cinematics.

Mad Max will be released on 4th September, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

*My Thoughts

Appearing to be very much similar to other WB titles such as Arkham and especially ‘Shadow of Mordor’ in terms of free roaming, upgrading and the combat. Does look interesting but will depend largely on the world in the game and what you can do and where you can go. I am more intrigued with ‘Mad Max’ than I was before this trailer that is for sure.
