Coffee Time News 27/04/15

Fantastic Four character bios show a change in Reed’s powers, Gears of War gets a remake and Silent Hills gets canned.

Film

A new bunch of information has come out about the Fantastic Four, more specifically the abilities and profiles of the Fantastic Four themselves. You can see a personal bio written by Dr. Franklin Storm (Sue and Johnny’s father) for each of the characters as well as a coy description of their powers. A team full of independent geniuses who prefer working alone.

Age of Ultron’s been out for a weekend now, so we should be seeing some figures about the international release, and we have! With a $201 million opening weekend, The Avengers Age of Ultron surpasses the original by a huge 44%. Baring in mind that it’s not even out in the states until the first of May, this film has potential.

A while back, Daniel Bruhl (Rush, Inglorious Bastards) was rumoured to be playing the role of Baron Zemo in Captain America: Civil War, an iconic Cap. villain who’s a weapons expert and worked beside the Red Skull in the comics, and this has all now been confirmed, though it looks like this could be his son, carrying on his father’s work.

Television

We’ve not featured any Gotham recently, but it’s coming to the end of the 1st season now and we’ve got some images of the season finale courtesy of Flickering Myth.

In the rumour-mill, an interesting one has popped up with regards to Iron Fist the Netflix series that will be the finale standalone before the team up Defenders; there are rumours that Doctor Strange (whether it be a body double of Cumberbatch or the man himself) will appear in the Iron Fist series. With the inclusion of magic and that sort of thing in both Iron Fist’s stories and Doctor Strange’s, it’s not too much of a leap to make sense. Also, it’s worth noting that in the comics Strange had a lot to do with the formation of the Defenders.

Games

The Rolling Stones, Robot Arms, Zombies. It’s time for the new Call of Duty Black Ops 3 trailer. There’s some talk of the moral quandary of when man becomes a weapon which could point towards a really intriguing single player campaign with similar philosophies to Deus Ex and Spec Ops. Or it will be more of the same… We’ll see.

Gears of War will be getting a next gen remastering on XBox One it’s been announced; it will be worked on by UK based developer Splash Damage and will most likely be aimed at a 2016 release, with that being the ten year anniversary of the original release of Gears of War.

Sad news for Silent Hill fans, the project titled Silent Hills (which was teased last year with P.T) is no longer in the making, says Guillermo Del Toro, who was to work on the project with Hideo Kojima. To that end, you have until Wednesday to download P.T if you haven’t already.
