Star Trek Picard Series Officially Begins Filming Today
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Creative Director Talks About The Game’s Length
Game of Thrones’ George R.R. Martin Talks About The Inevitable End
Comic Book Fan and Lazy Gamergraduated with a film degree from the De La Salle College of St. Benilde. He loves movies, comic books, video games and the WWE. He also likes to check out games and animated shows that are deemed underrated.
The world is currently buzzing about Game of Thrones, especially after the most recent episode had a *gasp* sex scene. It’s only a big deal since the scene involves Maisie Williams and people were unsure about her age, hence the mass Google search to see if her age was appropriate for the scene. Fans that knew beforehand thought it was a nice scene of consensual sex since you don’t get that a lot in this show.
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark and is good friends with Maisie Williams in real life, recently shared her NSFW reaction to said sex scene and it is gathering momentum in its own right. People seem to like it when celebrity friends react to each other and seeing Turner get dirty with her words is kind of fun.

Fans are really digging this and show how fun their friendship must be if Turner reacted like this. Since the show is ending, fans are probably saddened that they won’t have a lot of moments like this unless they work with each other again, so they should enjoy this while possible. Let’s all hope that the two end up living through the series, though that may not happen.
Game of Thrones airs weekly on HBO and streams on HBO GO.

HBO’s upcoming Watchmen series won’t be a typical adaptation instead, acting as more of an epilogue or an alternate take on the original graphic novel. The series has left many with different thoughts but it could be better than we expect and distancing itself from the comics is a move that should lead to a series that is incredibly surprising, maybe even shocking.
The company released a new promo trailer showcasing a number of new shows that will be debuting soon, including Watchmen. Since this is a collection of teasers, you only get a couple of snippets from the show, including this “new” version of Rorschach. We also get to see Jeremy Irons’ version of Ozymandias and some of the new characters.
We still don’t have a release date for the series but with Game of Thrones ending soon, the company is going to need some killer shows to keep that show’s momentum. It’s too soon to say if Watchmen will be that show but we can only hope that it, at the least, entertains us in ways that the original comic did not.
Anyone else excited for HBO’s Watchmen series?

Spider-Man: Far From Home is coming out this July and it has everyone’s attention since a.) it’s a sequel to the fun Spider-Man: Homecoming and b.) it will take place MINUTES after Avengers: Endgame. MINUTES. Most of us are looking forward to the film and we can’t wait to see what surprises it has in store for everyone and if it will tease anything neat for the future.
Our two leads, Spider-Man and Mysterio, look pretty cool and some new promo images have given us a very good look at these characters. This is the most detail we’ll be seeing of Mysterio until the film or next trailer comes out so we better enjoy it while we can. Fans can check out the images below via ComicBookMovie.
This won’t be the only suit Spidey wears since images and the first trailer revealed his original suit from Homecoming (the original Stark suit at least), a Noir-inspired stealth outfit, and the new one seen above. Mysterio looks like a faithful version of the comic book character but with a few new adjustments that make his suit more armor-like.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will now be coming out on July 2, three days up from its original release.

When it was announced that the US copy of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for Switch would have a digital code for X-2, fans were pretty annoyed. Things got even more controversial when the Asian version of the game would have both games in one cartridge, not having a need for the digital code. As if that wasn’t enough to grind your gears, fans have recently discovered that they need the cartridge to play X-2, even though it’s already a downloadable code.
According to fans on Reddit, despite the hefty download, fans will still need to keep the cartridge on to play both games. This is really annoying for those who were hoping they could play X-2 without the cartridge on, which is usually what’s promised when games have digital codes in them.
Bundles like the Resident Evil: Revelations collection, Bayonetta 2 + 1, and the Mega Man X Legacy Collection offered codes that would let gamers play the downloaded titles separately. This is the first time a Nintendo collection would require a cartridge to make a downloadable game playable. It’s an odd move.
Fans are better off getting the Asian version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. Both versions are now available in game stores everywhere, depending on your region. The collection is also available on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and PC.

Shang-Chi was announced as one of the next Marvel movies that will be coming out after Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s too soon to tell if the film will be a part of phase four or if it will come out on a later date but fans are happy to see some Asian representation in a future MCU movie.
Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, recently talked about the upcoming movie and promised that it would be “really different” and “special” when compared to other MCU installments. That is a vague way to hype up this upcoming Marvel movie but fans are, nonetheless, still excited to check it out and see how it does.
Here is what Feige said about Shang-Chi, via the Indo-Asian News Service:
"I think every movie that we do is a risk. We only want to do movies that people seem to think are risks. Doing the story of an Asian-American hero of Chinese heritage is something that is very intriguing to us. It will be really different and special."
"I hope audiences around the world respond to it in the same way they did to Steve Rogers...whether they have American flag or not. It's about the individual storyline, spectacle and adventure that come with Marvel Studios movies."
As of this writing, there is no release date for Shang-Chi. Destin Daniel Cretton will direct the movie while David Callaham writes the script.

Ever since the release of Batman: Arkham Knight, fans have been wondering what the next big DC game is going to be. Sure, we had Injustice 2, which rightfully won the Fighting Game of the Year award, but fans are hoping to see something bigger. Well, if this supposed leak from ResetEra is anything to go by it looks like a new DC game called Outlaws is coming out and it sure looks like a multiplayer game.
From what the leaks have revealed, it looks like this will be a multiplayer game with characters like Red Hood (hence the Outlaws name) and The Suicide Squad. The Wayne Enterprise building in the background of a Tweet that can be seen below also hints that Gotham City will be the setting, so expect a lot of Batman references.
Rumor: New DC Comics game Outlaws to be revealed on Friday (Rocksteady's game) pic.twitter.com/KpZEj4Iahq— AllGamesDelta (@AllGamesDelta_) April 22, 2019
Like all leaks, fans should take this with a grain of salt since some people online really work hard just to troll others. Still, it will be interesting to see how this game is like, assuming that it’s true of course. Some of us are probably hoping to see more of that new Batman: Arkham game, which has been teased numerous times, so that could still be happening, especially with E3 around the corner.
If these leaks are correct, DC’s Outlaws will be revealed on April 26.

Avengers: Endgame is literally days away and fans are losing it, with some probably having plans to camp out of malls or something crazy like that. Unsurprisingly, the film has had a number of product tie-ins, including a number of toys, mugs, and some Marvel mobile games like Contest of Champions and Puzzle Quest. Fans of Fortnite will be happy to know that the company has officially teased a crossover with the popular movie.
It’s not just Thanos either.
The Tweet below teases one of the game’s characters wielding Captain America’s shield, which could be a hint at more exclusive content for the free-to-play title. It’s nice to know that this isn’t just the return of Thanos as a playable character and we could see new items that could turn the tide of these intense battles.
Whatever it takes.4.25.19.#FortniteXAvengers pic.twitter.com/XSXcypJZJE— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) April 22, 2019
Like most of these promotional tie-ins, the items and characters won’t be a permanent fixture in the game so fans should take advantage of this once it comes out. The game is free anyway and is still popular, despite new alternative titles like Apex Legends and the original battle royale shooter Player Unknown Battlegrounds (PUBG).
Avengers: Endgame will be coming out on April 26. Fortnite is now available on pretty much every gaming system out right now.

Ever since he debuted, Tormund has been a wonderful character that somehow brings comedy and wholesome moments to Game of Thrones. Yes, THAT Game of Thrones, where stabbing, rape, and child burning is the norm, so the fact that fans are still okay after investing heavily on that show is an impressive feat. Anyway, Tormund has been a consistently great part of the show and the latest episode of the series is proof of that.
During the second episode of the HBO show’s final season, Tormund revealed that he was breastfed by a giant woman for three months, which was then followed up by him chugging a huge drink afterward. The character also clapped until his hand fell off when Brienne was officially knighted, which warmed the hearts of many.
You don’t get too many scenes like these on the show.
As is typical of the internet, memes of these moments were released, with fans expressing how hilarious and pure Tormund is. Obviously, no one wants this character to die and we can hope that he eventually ends up with Brienne. Assuming she wants to be with him of course. The show needs more consensual moments between men and women.

Most of us Marvel fans felt like Thor: Ragnarok, while not the best MCU installment, is the best Thor movie and it’s not even close. While not downright horrible or anything like that, the two Thor films are often considered as low-tier MCU movies and most of us consider them mediocre. Turns out that lead actor Chris Hemsworth feels the same way as us fans.
Speaking with Yahoo UK, Hemsworth revealed that he was “underwhelmed” with the character until Taika Waititi came along with Thor: Ragnarok. The movie really did everything in its power to make it stand out when compared to the other movies, thanks to a heavy emphasis on comedy and some unique settings.
“When we came into Ragnarok, I was sort of exhausted of what I’d been doing and a little sort of underwhelmed by what I was putting out there. On Ragnarok, it was about breaking all the rules, and kinda going ‘as soon as it feels familiar, do something different’, and Taika [Waititi] – the director – had the same vision, and the same, I guess, guts to just roll the dice and [do the] ‘anything goes’ kind of thing.”
It’s hard to blame Hemsworth for feeling this way since the second Thor movie and both Avengers films did little to change his character from the first film. Sure, he had a lot of fun action sequences and did have a few good lines but he was usually the most underdeveloped character in these films, until Ragnarok and Infinity War at least.
Fans are hoping that Taika Waititi and Hemsworth work together again, whether it’s on a possible Thor 4 or even an original film. We will see Thor’s fate in Avengers: Endgame on April 26 and let’s hope the character survives.

The second Game of Thrones episode has come and gone but fans are talking about it for a number of reasons, one of which was a “controversial” scene. Fans ended up freaking out over Arya Stark and Gendry doing the dirty, which is odd since the series almost-always had sex scenes, though it might be due to the fact that fans are still grasping over the fact that Arya is an adult now.
Fans, you know who you are, ended up Googling Maisie William’s age, with many breathing a sigh of relief when it was revealed that she was 22. Those that looked up her age were happy to know that they were not a “witness” to some sort of crime, even though Williams has been an adult for quite some time now.
Williams ended up talking about this controversial scene on Entertainment Weekly, thinking that it was a prank at first. Apparently, the showrunners had sent the cast bogus scripts before, including a fake scene where Jon Snow has his face disfigured. However, this scene ended up being legitimate, which surprised Williams to a certain degree.
Funnily enough, it was co-star and X-Men: Dark Phoenix lead star Sophie Turner who told Williams about the scene.
“Sophie said, ‘Whatever you do, you have to skip to this episode, this scene first.’ So I just read that and it was practically all I knew about the entire season. At first, I thought it was a prank. Yo, good one.’ And [the showrunners were] like, ‘No, we haven’t done that this year.’ Oh f—k!”
After this, Williams joked about going to the gym and revealed that everyone was respectful about the scene, even if their responses did make things more awkward. Gendry actor Joe Dempsie thought that the scene was a strange experience at first since he's known Williams since she was 12 but he didn’t want to belittle her either, so he ended up going through with the scene.
Game of Thrones is currently in its final season and airs on HBO. It also streams on HBO GO.
