Civil War’s funeral revealed, The Rock to return for Furious 8 and Sega pulls a heap of games from iTunes.

Film

Spoilers right out of the gate; last week we showed images from Captain America Civil War that featured some of our favourite heroes in funeral attire, now we know officially who’s send off they were attending, it should be a surprise, but click here to see.

Furious 7 has taken the box office by storm, and really claimed the franchise’s place as one of the biggest cinema events of their release year. To that end, it’s no surprise that the 8th film in the franchise has been given the go ahead for 2017 and fans of Dwayne Johnson’s character of Luke Hobbs will be happy to know he’s on his way back for the next instalment. 

Chris Pratt, now there’s a popular sought after guy, after starting his career in Parks and Recreation he’s gone from strength to strength starring in surprise mega-hit Guardians of the Galaxy and soon to be in Jurassic World, he’s even in talks to reboot the Indianna Jones franchise… One thing he’s pretty sure he’s not doing? Ghostbusters. He calls the rumours that he and Channing Tatum will be starring in their own movie in the series ‘Bullshit’, that he’s not heard anything about them.

Television

Arrow season 3 started off with a major character’s death, and the tone of the season just followed that; it was a particularly dark and menacing series, even for a show that thus far has been dark anyway. Well season 4, showrunner Marc Guggenheim says, will be a lighter tone. Not too light, this isn’t the Flash, after all, but it will be lighter.

Speaking of the Flash, Grant Gustin has suited up alongside Melissa Benoist for a Variety cover focussing on producer Greg Berlanti, who has been responsible for bringing these characters to our screens.

Games

Hey remember last year when Destiny’s Alpha came out and Dinklebot had that hilariously bad line about moon wizards? Well it’s back! Re-edited so that it sounds like the robotic ghost that we’ve all grown to… like? Anyway, reports say it’s actually been back in the game for months.

Sega have pulled a heap of games from online app stores Google Play and iTunes including Jet Set Radio, Super Monkey Ball, Altered Beast and Ecco the Dolphin. For a full list, check here.

Civilization: Beyond Earth has its first expansion on the way, in the form of rising tide, which will see players able to build on water and explore the treasures (and treacherousness) of the oceans as well as new diplomatic options.
