Coffee Time News 27/01/15

Emma Watson is cast in Beauty and the Beast, David Tennant cast in Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones and Fox begins work on a live action Xmen show.

Film

Emma Watson is set to play Belle in Disney’s live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and Belle is basically the Hermoine of the Disney universe and she seems really excited to be playing a role that she’s loved since she was a child, not much else is known about the film as of yet.

Joss Whedon has come out and said that it’s doubtful that he’ll direct Avengers Infinity Wars part 1 and 2. He’s cautious of burning out with the franchise and not having the heart for it when the time comes. But there’s still a chance he’ll have some sway and involvement in the series, I imagine the offer would be there for a guy who’s done so much for the franchise.

Well here’s a big day; the first official behind the scenes look at Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Trank previously worked on Chronicle, where he also worked with the new human torch, Michael B. Jordan, they can be seen in these behind the scenes right here.

Television

Well, did you know that the announcement of Heroes Reborn was the first news article we ever did on Axby? Well here’s another piece of (not so good) news about the spin off, while it will feature Jack Coleman’s HRG (Noah Bennet) it won’t star Star Trek star and previous super-powered serial killer Sylar, played by Zachary Quinto.

Fox is developing a live action X-Men television series, looks like we’ll be casting all our favourite mutants all over again soon! The interesting thing about this is that Marvel still, apparently, own the television rights to the series, which means they get the last say.

Speaking of Marvel live action series, Netflix series AKA Jessica Jones has found its antagonist, and I could not be more excited. Doctor Who and Broadchurch star David Tennant will be taking up the helm of Zebidiah Kilgrave (the Purple Man) a villain who has the ability to influence the minds and actions of others through suggestion.

Games

The Witcher has always been a incredibly complex and tempting game series for a lot of console players, but since it was originally designed for the PC crowd, console players have had a hard time getting into the series, but that’s about to change in the Witcher 3: the Wild Hunt, according to the CEO of CD Projekt Marcin Iwinski.

Up until February 9th, Bioware are offering 10 free tavern songs to download from the epic Dragon Age Inquisition. You can discover more and find a link over at Polygon.

5 Nights and Freddy’s 3 has a new trailer, and a slightly new premise: 30 years after the closure of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, the premises seem to be being turned into a house of horrors. Because that’s a good idea.
