Marvel reveals the answer behind that Captain America plot twist w/ Captain America: Steve Rogers #2 *SPOILERS*
Looks like the cat is out of the bag, as Marvel FINALLY reveals the truth behind the sudden change in status quo Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, when the recently returned and restored Star Spangled Avenger showed he was an Agent of HYDRA in his new ongoing series "Captain America: Steve Rogers". Needless to say, that last page caused a lot of controversy and divided opinions - with the issue selling out and a second printing coming out as a result.

Looks like fans who were looking forward to Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, DC Entertainment, and Rocksteady Studios' remastered re-release of the first two Batman Arkham games are going to have to wait a little bit longer, as a report by Batman-News.com confirms that "Batman: Return To Arkham" has been delayed indefinitely.
According to the official WB Games Forums post, the decision for the delay was made in order to give the developers more time to fix the remastering of "Batman: Arkham Asylum" and "Batman: Arkham City" - which are two of the finest chapters in the series. Fan made comparison videos between footage remastered and the original release showed that the older versions looked better. Looks like the delay was justified, and a better and more confident product is more serviceable than a bad one.
Batman: Return to Arkham was supposed to be released on July 26th for the PS4 and Xbox One.

It's been over seven years since he last appeared in the familiar red and blue outfit of a certain amazing wallcrawler superhero, but Hollywood star Tobey Maguire will always be remembered as the first big screen Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's trilogy of films, and today marks the actor's 41st birthday!
Starting out in the original 2002 Spider-Man film as the webslinging superhero, Maguire became a household name instantly when he took on the role of Peter Parker/ Spider-Man and starred alongside Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson and James Franco as Harry Osborn. All three would reprise their roles in 2004 for Spider-Man 2 and finally for Spider-Man 3 in 2007, then Sony Pictures would reboot the franchise with 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man" with Andrew Garfield taking over the main role. Now Spidey's joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the wallcrawler is now played by young British actor Tom Holland.
Despite being done playing Marvel's iconic superhero, Maguire's tenure as Spidey will always be remembered by a generation of fans who wanted to see the hero come to life... And he certainly delivered tenfold. Happy Birthday, Tobey Maguire!

In what is certainly a milestone for one of the most recognizable characters in video game history, SEGA honored its most famous blue mascot Sonic The Hedgehog - as the "way past cool" hero and freedom fighter celebrated his 25th anniversary!
Naturally, Sonic's origins stem way back in 1991 with the release of the original "Sonic The Hedgehog" video game for the Sega Genesis/ Mega Drive 16-Bit platform on June 23, 1991. That game introduced us to the blue hedgehog as he fought to stop the evil Dr. Robotnik from conquering his world and enslaving his friends by turning them into robots. That platform title was a hit, and spawned an immediate sequel the next year with Sonic The Hedgehog 2, followed by a 3rd game and then more spin-offs that eventually led to the birth of a franchise.
To celebrate 25 years, SEGA has released a video for Sonic's birthday!

As one of the most EPIC shows to be seen and witnessed in television to date, the penultimate episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones" proved without a shadow of a doubt that there is much to be said about creating a medieval fantasy battle that has the stakes on and lots of gruesome deaths as a result of it... "Battle of the Bastards" was that episode, and it showcased the long awaited confrontation between Jon Snow and his mix of free folk and loyal Stark bannermen against the forces of Ramsay Bolton and those who serve under him for the right to claim Winterfell and The North.
Let's just say that episode was "Lord of The Rings meets Saving Private Ryan meets 300", and you'll get the idea on how GRAND that episode was. Much thought and production was put into this episode, and it did not disappoint... Not one bit. You see things steadily on the rise as far as storylines go, and George R.R. Martin's epic world based on his "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels is moving ahead in the television department.
A look inside the episode gives more insight on how this eclipses what happened in last season's "Hardhome", which is directed by this episode's director, Miguel Sapochnik. Now the world awaits how Season 6 will end. Come next week, the "Winds of Winter" will rise.
Game of Thrones airs every Sunday on HBO.

Marvel has been teasing something BIG happening in the pages of "The Amazing Spider-Man", with mysterious banner posters hinting at someone or something being "Dead No More" and having something to do with the mysterious man in a red suit who has systematically been gathering many of the wallcrawler's foes to his side. Now, the curtain is pulled by EW, and it can now be revealed that The Jackal has returned to haunt Peter Parker by unleashing a new wave of clone madness, with a major story event happening this October called "Spider-Man: The Clone Conspiracy"

The Clone Conspiracy will be a stand alone five-issue series, as well as a build-up to the event with Amazing Spider-Man #16-18 followed by a major story arc tie-in in Amazing Spider-Man #19-23 and Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1.

After a leaked image appeared on the interwebz and pretty much confirmed everyone's guess that a sequel to one of the most successful comic book fighting games was coming, Warner Bros., and NetherRealm Studios have pulled the curtain to reveal that "Injustice 2" is happening, and it has the tag line "Every Battle Defines You" - which pretty much strays along the lines that "you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain".
As the sequel to 2013's "Injustice: Gods Among Us", Injustice 2 will apparently take things up a notch by adding armor upgrades into the battle as well as the gear system (which was present in the mobile edition of the first game), and of course new faces will join the fray such as Kara Zor-El, better known as Superman's cousin Supergirl! Check out the announcement trailer below, which is way ahead of E3 2016 week.
