In spite of all the technical (and balance) complaints levied at Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst’s PC release, there is one thing it did that cannot be denied: it proved that Steam (and the PC) is a viable platform for the types of games that used to be the forte of consoles. And we might be seeing one of the fallouts: Bandai Namco games has recently confirmed via the Tokyo Game Show that Dragon Ball Xenoverse will be getting a PC release via Steam, making it the first ever Dragon Ball fighting game to be released on PC in the US.

As a way of celebrating the announcement, Bandai Namco’s US arm has released a subtitled version of the Tokyo Game Show trailer, which contains more details on the game’s plot. You can watch the video below:

One of the best parts of Fox’s X-Men: Origins was the appearance of Wade Wilson, because Deadpool has a large (and loyal) fanbase, and that Ryan Reynolds did a fine job portraying the merc in a mouth before he became the wisecracking, fourth wall-breaking anti-hero. The clamor for a spin-off movie was equally strong, but died down after the project was unceremoniously shelved and Reynolds went to the other camp and portrayed one of their heroes (unsuccessfully, in terms of critical reception.)

Fortunately for all the little Deadpool fans out there, Fox has finally confirmed that a Deadpool movie is officially pushing through, and what’s even better is that they plan to cast Ryan Reynolds in the lead, which means it stands to benefit from the universe already set by the Wolverine movies, and that it could help make people forget all about the actor’s much-maligned stint as an emerald guardian. The official release date of the Deadpool film is set as February 2016.

Reynolds has yet to sign on the dotted line, but given Fox’s statement about wanting to cast him in the lead, it can be assumed that all that’s needed is formality. What’s even better is that producer Simon Kinberg has already hinted that they’re trying to go for an R-rating in order to do the character justice.

Fox’s first two attempts at adapting the Fantastic Four franchise to the big screen weren’t exactly well-received by fans, so it’s not surprising that their planned remake is being anticipated by people just to see how they plan to address the issues that plagued the originals. However, it seems like people might want to adjust their schedule as Fox has pushed back the release date to August 15, taking over the slot that was initially reserved for Assassin’s Creed.

It’s not that big of a wait, anyway. The original release date was only a couple of months earlier at June 16, 2015. There’s no announcement or explanation as to why the release date was moved, although there’s speculation that it’s because Fox is trying to emulate the success of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which opened in August.

Sadly for people who are excited about the film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, the film has been pulled completely out of Fox’s lineup, as the release date has been changed to TBD. There’s no word on what prompted the temporary shelving of the project.

Despite not having cast the lead role yet, Marvel has recently announced the official release date for Doctor Strange, which serves as a confirmation that the film is pushing through. Previously, fans speculated on whether the film is progressing or has been sent to development limbo due to lack of solid casting news. The official release date for Doctor Strange (no confirmation on whether this is going to be the exact title yet) is July 8, 2016 in the US.

According to a Screen Daily report, Marvel is currently in “advanced negotiations” with Pinewood-Shepperton studios, with plans to start filming in late 2014/early 2015. The film will be directed by Scott Derrickson and so far, there have been numerous actors attached to the lead role – the most recent ones being Joaquin Phoenix, Benedict Cumberbatc, and Jack Huston.

According to a recent report by Deadline.com, Chernin Entertainment is currently working with Mattel in order to develop a new animated film based on the popular Ever After High toy line. The project is helmed by Jenno Topping and Peter Chernin.

Ever After High focuses on the story of teenage sons and daughters of iconic fairytale characters, such as Apple White (daughter of Snow White) and Raven Queen (daughter of the Evil Queen); Lizzie Hearts (daughter of the Queen of Hearts); Cedar Wood (daughter of Pinocchio); Dexter Charming (son of King Charming); and Cerise Hood (daughter of Little Red Riding Hood).

The movie is titled Ever After High: Spring Unsprung and will debut in early 2015, which will be followed by a Netflix original series consisting of 12 episodes. The series follows the young fairytale offspring as they believe that they need to carry on their parents’ destinies in order to avoid the stories from being lost forever and the characters fading out of existence. However, as expected of teenagers, they try to break the mold and give their own take on the fairytales, with unexpected results.

If you missed J.G. Quintel’s golf cart-driving, video game-playing, procrastinating dudes Mordecai and Rigby, you might want to mark “October 9, Thursday, at 7:30 pm” in your calendar as Cartoon Network will be bringing back Regular Show for its sixth fist-pumping episode.

It is worth noting that season 5 ended with Mordecai CJ going out on an epic “real date” that concluded with a bunch of death defying explosions and a kiss. Season 6 promises to pick up where they left off, as the series starts to tackle the relationship in the premiere episode “Maxin’ and Relaxin,” which has Mordecai taking CJ to meet his embarrassing parents.

The season will also feature the requisite “Terror Tales” Halloween special, where fans can expect the same brand of twisty, turny, surprisy, creepy stories that still turn out to be hilarious gems. Oh, and they’ve mentioned a wedding. Whose wedding? They didn’t say.

Created by JG Quintel and produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the Emmy®-winning series Regular Show, follows the lives of best friends Mordecai (a six-foot-tall blue jay) and Rigby (a hyperactive raccoon) whose lazy afternoon adventures always seem to be interrupted by zombies and misadventures with their gang of friends Benson, Pops, Muscle Man, Hi-Five Ghost, Skips, Thomas, Margaret and Eileen or sometimes even dealing with Death himself.

Sony’s planned CG animated Popeye film has been announced a long time ago, but details about the project were few and far in between and most people were content to write it off as simply entering development limbo. However, things seem to be moving forward as Sony Pictures Animation has just posted a first-look clip at the project.

Dubbed as a mere “animation test,” the clip features an introduction from animation legend Genndy Tartakovsky, who is also directing another of Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming features, Hotel Transylvania 2. Tartakovsky promised to make the film “as artful and unrealistic as possible,” and it’s no surprising that he seems to have pulled it off given his past works. You can check out the clip below:

Nickelodeon’s hit animated comedy series Sanjay and Craig will be returning for its second season this Saturday, September 20 at 10:30 am.

Nickelodeon has released a preview clip from the episode, which shows Sanjay and Craig arguing over a puppy that everyone except Craig finds to be a little bit too smelly. You can watch the clip below:

Nickelodeon has just released a new video clip from the next expisode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is scheduled to air this coming Friday, September 19, at 8:00 pm ET/PT. Titled “Into Dimension X!,” the episode allows Mikey to take center stage while the rest of the crew is out of the picture.

Even though the title “Into Dimension X!” kind of implies that the episode focuses on Dimension X, the episode actually delves more into Mikey’s penchance for always messing things up at home, which ends up being useful because when the Turtles are thrown for a loop due to the bizarre nature of Dimension X, Mikey’s leanings towards disorganization and chaos end up helping him figure the place out.

With the announcement that Sony will be launching a new movie franchise off of Spider-Man, one that focuses on his on-again/off-again nemesis Venom, one of the chief concerns that fans have is “which one?”

The Venom character, which started out as an alien symbiote suit that Peter Parker brought home from space and eventually found it’s own host after a falling out with Peter (because it tried to take over. You already know the story), found its way in the hands of several owners and spawned other symbiote suits. Eddie Brock is arguably the most popular one, but the other incarnations – including Flash Thompson and Mac Gargan (The Scorpion) are also favored by some people.

In an interview with CBR’s Spin-Off Online, Alex Kurtzman discussed the challenges involved in choosing the right one, though he failed to mention exactly which one they went with:

“I would not say [picking the incarnation of Venom is] an easy choice,” begins Kurtzman. “I would say that there are quite a few things about Venom that are interesting.”

“Venom had several different iterations, and there are several things that are very unique, interesting and specific. And so I think we all want to make sure that we’re making the right choices for a character that’s so beloved.”

“Before last Friday came out, we started kind of roughing out a story,” he continues. “Ed Solomon’s going to be writing it very soon. I can’t tell you too much, but I’m really excited about it.”

There’s already a lot of confirmed details available for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, mainly with regard to casting and the main villain. However, the story was kept tightly under wraps, until now. The official synopsis for the sequel to the box-office breaking Marvel team-up film has been released and it contains details not only on the general premise, but also on Paul Bettany’s transformation into the Vision:

“When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.”

“As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.”

“The team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.”

This coming September 20, Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons, Nick Jr., Nick.com, NickJr.com, Nicktoons.com, TeenNick.com and the Nick App will all be unavailable from 12 pm to 3 pm (ET/PT) as Nickelodeon shows support for the 11th Annual Worldwide Day of Play (WWDoP), which encourages and empowers kids to go outside, play, and be more active. Additionally, Nickelodeon’s national prosocial partners – United States Tennis Association, NFL PLAY 60, the Boys and Girls Club of America and Key Club, among others — will host several thousand local events across the country to help celebrate kids’ love of play.

“This year’s Worldwide Day of Play celebration will cap off a summer of ‘Road to Worldwide Day of Play” local-market visits in San Diego, Detroit, and Virginia Beach where we teamed up with grassroots organizations to celebrate kids and all the ways they stay active,” said Marva Smalls, Executive Vice President of Public Affairs, Nickelodeon Group. “Nickelodeon is taking the spirit of those visits to a global level on Sept. 20 for Worldwide Day of Play, when our partners host almost 4,000 events to encourage kids and their families everywhere to be more physically active.”

As part of WWDoP, Nickelodeon will be airing health and wellness-themed messaging starting at 9 am in the morning on September 20, all the way to the start of the network blockout. Throughout the morning, interstitials featuring stars from Nickelodeon’s hit live-action series, including Sydney Park and Tylen Jacob Williams (Instant Mom), Curtis Harris and Breanna Yde (The Haunted Hathaways) and Paola Andino and Nick Merico (Every Witch Way), will encourage kids to take the time to be more physically active. At 12 p.m., Nickelodeon will sign-off on air and online, signaling kids and families to get up and get moving. While the network is dark, a message encouraging viewers to go play will appear on a loop.

When Nickelodeon, its niche channels, websites and app resume programming at 3 p.m., health and wellness messaging will continue with highlights from this summer’s “Road to Worldwide Day of Play” events in San Diego, Calif., Detroit, Mich. and Virginia Beach, Va.

For more details, you can visit www.nick.com/play, where there are photos and videos form “Road to Worldwide Day of Play” events, as well as tips and toolkits on how to plan your own WWDoP activities.

9 Story Entertainment has recently announced that Slap Happy Cartooons’ hit animated comedy series Nerds and Monsters has just signed multiple new deals. The 40 x 11 series has inked new broadcast deals that include TVE (Spain), Canal+ Family (France and Africa), E-Junior (UAE), Noga (Israel) and MBC Kids (Middle East). The show was previously licensed to CiTV (UK) and ABC TV (Australia.) Additionally, the series was recently greenlit for a second season by YTV (Canada.)

For the uninitiated, Nerds and Monsters follows 3 nerdy youngsters and a slow-witted football star as they try to survive on an uncharted island. The castaways have nothing to rely on but their wits as they are relentlessly attacked on all sides by the island’s inhabitants – a tribe of hideous, yet utterly hilarious monsters. Fortunately for our protagonists, the monsters don’t have much in the way of smarts either.

One of the key defining aspects of Professor X is that he’s bald. It’s a bit shallow, but yes. When people say Professor X, you imagine a bald man on a floating chair. In the first two films in the rebooted X-Men series, James McAvoy managed to work the role effectively despite sporting a full head of hair, mainly because he’s portraying Charlex Xavier in his heady…erm…younger days and because you really can’t find any fault with his acting skill.

However, times may be about to change and we might see McAvoy portray a bald Xavier. The info came from the actor himself, who revealed that he’s portraying an older version in X-Men: Apocalypse:

“I’ll be older in this one,” explains McAvoy. “I think I’m losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that’s kind of all I know.”

“I got an email from the [producer/writer Simon Kinberg] who informed me he was getting dead excited about stuff, but he didn’t want to divulge anything for a couple of weeks, so I really don’t know.”
