Wonder Woman loses director, Psylocke to appear in Apocalypse and the first look at David Tennant in AKA Jessica Jones.

Film

X-men Apocalypse has cast a long awaited character, Psylocke, set to be portrayed by Olivia Munn. While the younger cast (including Sophie Turner and Ben Hardy) will most likely be part of Xavier’s school, Psylocke has the potential to be an independent player.

Captain Marvel is the MCU’s first attempt at a female lead super hero story, and there was a lot of weight put on having a female lead team behind it, well it looks like we could be halfway there, as Nicole Perlman (Co-writer of Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LaFauve (Inside Out) have been tapped to write the film, though this being Marvel there’ll be no confirmation until it’s official.

In bad news; Wonder Woman director Michelle MacLaren has stepped down from directing the stand alone movie due to ‘creative differences’. It’s unsure if the film, set to release in June 2017, will be delayed because of this.

Television

Now that Daredevil is out in the open, and receiving huge praises from fans and critics alike, it’s time to look onto the next Netflix Marvel show; AKA Jessica Jones, which is good, since we’ve got the first image of David Tennant as the Purple Man. Whether or not we’ll see him go full purple, or whether he’ll just stick with the suit we don’t know yet.

Game of Thrones is back, which means every Tuesday for the next 10 weeks you’ll be seeing a promo for the next episode, and so here’s a quick teaser for The House of Black and White

Whoever said DC wasn’t up for a bit of levity? Check out this teaser/fun video for the season finales of IThe Flash and Arrow, aptly titled ‘super hero fight club’.

Games

GTA V for the PC has had a long wait, but Rockstar have given PC players a great tool to express the creativity of the gaming community in the Rockstar Editor, a robust tool for filming and creating your own ‘movie moments’ in both story mode and online.

Capcom is expanding the Monster Hunter brand in this new announcement of Monster Hunter Stories, an RPG that will be a little lighter in tone than the main games. Check out the trailer here.

May 19th will see the release of Destiny’s second DLC, House of Wolves, which, it’s been announced, will not have a raid, instead a new arena type deal called ‘the Prison of Elders‘.
