Deadpool will be R rated, House of Cards Season 4 gets greenlit and Wednesday’s Nintendo Direct sees a host of announcements and updates.

Film

In case you missed it on Wednesday, it was announced that Deadpool will be rated PG13, and then it was subsequently announced that it will, of course, be rated R, through this excellent video with Ryan Reynolds. Now, I’m not a fan of April Fools, but if you’re going to do one, do it like this.

Earlier this week we shared a bit of concept art for Xmen Apocalypse which showed Angel in a sort of cage for a side show attraction, well now the actor playing the winged mutant has been announced, it’s Ben Hardy (Eastenders). in the comic storyline Angel is gifted enhancements by Apocalypse and becomes one of his four horseman.

Two trailers now; one international trailer for the Fantastic Four which shows off a little more than we’ve seen already, and keeps with the very interstellar-y vibe. The second is two more TV spots for Avengers Age of Ultron, which is less than a month away.

Television

House of Cards has been renewed for a fourth season; the emmy winning Netflix drama has achieved critical acclaim and popularity, so it’s unsurprising to see a new series being given the green light. The season will most likely be released on the streaming sight in the early months of next year.

Attack on Titan will be getting 2 live action movies in the future, but more than that, many of the actors from those films will be appearing in a live action series as well, based on a different story within the same world. Fans of the Anime should keep an eye out.

With Game of Thrones season 5 just over a week away, anticipation is at an all time high, and G.R.R. Martin has been kind enough to release an excerpt from the next book in the series Winds of Winter to satiate the book readers’ appetite. Spoilers ahoy.

Games

There was a Nintendo Direct late on Wednesday evening, and here’s a list (courtesy of Kotaku) which details all you need to know about Nintendo’s announcements, including new game details such as Attack on Titan and Fire emblem and new updates, including Smash Bro’s announcements. Oh, and Amiibos.

Quantum Break, the Xbox One exclusive which sees you solving crime using time manipulation, was originally set for release some time this year, but will now release in 2016, the dev team is using the extra time to polish and improve the game, while the publishing team is using it to spread the wealth of releases we can expect to see this year.

Bungie is taking idling very serious in Destiny, stating that they will begin banning ‘toxic players’, supporting their case by saying that idling can ruin a difficult strike or a crucible game, making them unfair or un-winnable. Which is certainly true, and idling is tempting due to the game’s random loot rewards at the mission’s end. The upcoming patch will also reduce the run time of 2 of Mars’ strikes, making them more appealing (and easier) to see through to the end.
