Coffee Time News 06/01/15

Astral Planes, Young Cersei Lannisters and Choose the next Far Cry Adventure.

Film

Sherlock/The Hobbit/Star Trek actor Benedict Cumberbatch will be Steven Strange in 2016, and in this little interview he talks about the role and how excited he is to be working with Marvel, fans will also be happy to know that he’s doing his homework and reading up on the character.

Fox has moved a few release dates around and announced a few as well, so for a quick rundown: Gambit, starring Channing Tatum, will hit cinemas on October 7th 2016, with Deadpool and Xmen Apocalypse coming out earlier in the year. June 2nd 2017 will see the release of the Fantastic Four remake, with July 17th bringing us Planet of the Apes 3. The Michael Fassbender Assassins’ Creed will be here on December 16th of 2016 too.

Scarlett Johansson has been cast as the lead in the live action adaption of the manga/anime Ghost in a Shell, which will be directed by Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. But it might not be that bad…

Television

With Marvel’s Agent Carter airing tonight (expect a Reaction Time tomorrow) here’s some promotional images for the second episode in the two part premier tonight.

Fans of both Marvel and DC will want to check out this three way interview between show leaders from both studios, where they talk about what exactly would happen in an Arrow/Carter crossover. (Hint, Agent Carter would be having none of Oliver’s broodiness)

For the first time in its run, season 5 of Game of Thrones will employ flashbacks, more specifically those of Cersei Lannister, whose younger version has been cast in the form of Nell Williams (the Revolting World of Stanley Brown). Whether or not the flashback floodgates will now open and we’ll see more characters’ pasts is still unknown.

Games

Destiny is a really great game, if you’ve the dedication and patience, but with these resources it might be that little bit easier to level up your loot and get into those raids.

Playstation Now, the Sony service that will allow PS3 games played on the PS4 is now getting a subscription plan. US prices can be found here, but there’s still no news on when it will be coming to the UK.

Ubisoft, despite what you may think, values your imput, it was partly due to the players that we got both Unity and Rogue this year, and now they’re extending that feedback to the Far Cry series, they want you to pick the next setting, if you already have Far Cry 4. The choices range from the same sort of Far Cry stock (cocaine trafficking in Peru) to familiar settings (Blood Dragon 2 anyone?) to the outright insane (Vampires.) Personally I’m a fan of the Wild West setting.
