Community Season 6 Avengers themed trailer, Avengers Teaser Trailer and March’s PS Plus games announced.

Film

The coolest man in the galaxy, Lando Calrissian, may not be featuring in The Force Awakens but actor Billy Dee Williams has been told that he’ll have a ‘fun cameo’ in episode 8 and has said that he’d definitely be up for it. This comes from the Tabloid the Sun though, so you know… It’s probably to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Here’s the first look at Joseph Gordon -Levitt as Edward Snowden, from the movie Snowden directed by Oliver Stone. The movie, based on the events of 2013 involving an NSA whistleblower who discovered the US government’s surveillance program on ordinary citizens,  will also star Nicholas Cage and Zachary Quinto.

As much as I dislike teasers for trailers (which in themselves are teasers) The Avengers Age of Ultron recently had a new teaser for the third trailer that will air on Thursday night. (So expect it here on Friday Morning) as well as the final character poster starring Chris Evans as Captain America.

Television

I had my doubts about Community season 6, I can’t help but feel like it’s gone on a little too long, but the first trailer for the Yahoo exclusive show, which is obviously heavily ‘inspired’ by the Avengers Age of Ultron’s first trailer has won me over somewhat, it looks like the continuation of the form we’ve gotten since the end of the terrible gas leak season.

Winter is coming, but SO SLOWLY, with just over a month to go until season 5 of Game of Thrones (airs April 12th) we’re really still quite thin on the ground with regards to promotional material, though when something’s this big, do you really need it? The people who are going to watch it are definitely going to watch it. Anyway, we finally get to see some of the fan favourite Sand Snakes in this weapon featurette which talks about designing the weapons of Dorne.

Star Wars Rebels (which, for those who are keeping track is official canon) has just announced that Season 2 will star Sarah Michelle Gellar, don’t know who that is? GET OFF THIS SITE.
Nah, just kidding, she’s Buffy, you know, from Buffy The Vampire Slayer? Her character doesn’t have a name or role yet, but you know, talent?

Games

Big news first, Valve, responsible for all your summer sale poverty, has finally announced details about their Steam Machines and the Steam Controller, which are to be launched in November. Apparently they’re to be priced in the same realm as regular consoles but will have higher performance, and the steam controllers will be priced around $50 a piece. They also announced that their new engine, Source 2, will be free for developers which is lovely of them.

Dragon Age Head Writer David Gaider announced via twitter that he was leaving the franchise but not Bioware. He’s starting work on a new project that, unfortunately, he can’t tell us anything about. But being responsible for 10 years worth of Dragon Age work can only prove promising for whatever it is he’s moved to.

Better late than never right? The PS plus games for March are here, they include Counter Spy, Valient Hearts the Great War and OlliOlli 2. check out the full list, and previews over at the official page.
