Coffee Time News 13/04/15

No origin story for the new Spider-man, the first 4 episodes of Game of Thrones season 5 out in the wild and Xbox One Price cut.

Film

Ian McKellen has been cast as Cogsworth in the upcoming live action version of Beauty and the Beast, which will also star Emma Watson, Luke Evans and Emma Thompson. In the original Cogsworth is the chief steward who gets turned into a Clock, so I’m guessing CGI? Or perhaps a clock outfit.

Good news everyone! The MCU version of Spider-man will not be an origin story (rapturous applause) he’ll also be a younger Spidey than we’ve seen, being a teenager in high school who, most likely, has only just received his powers (probably in the battle of New York, a gift from the mighty Space Whale perhaps?).

This is news a long time coming, but a few years back there were noises, a lot of noises, being made about a live action adaptation of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, with not only a film series, but a television series to help flesh out the incredible world that King has created. Well, it went quiet for a while, but now, in a time of movie universes everywhere you look, it seems like the perfect time to start looking at that script again, which is exactly what Sony is doing.

Television

Game of Thrones hasn’t aired in the UK yet, and already the first four episodes of season 5 have been leaked online. The speculation, considering the standard definition quality of the leaks, is that they originate from the press pack for selected reviewers of the four episodes. Of course, if you cave and watch the first four episodes now, then you’ve got a month’s wait until you can carry on.

In lighter news, fancy seeing how the ATOM gets his name, and just how awkward Ray Palmer really is? No? TOUGH. Here’s a clip from The Flash.

Games

The first episode of TellTales’ Game of Thrones is being offered for free by Amazon for those of you using an android device. It’s slated as a ‘limited time offer’ with no actual time stated as a finish point.

The Xbox One is getting a £30 official price drop in the UK and will now be available Kinect-less for just under £300, which is a huge drop from its original launch price of £429, if you’ve been waiting for a next gen console, this could be your chance.

Yacht Club’s Shovel Knight will be releasing on the PS4 and Vita on April 21st, and alongside that launch players will be able to fight against God of War’s Kratos. Though finding him will apparently be easier said that done.
