The Walking Dead Video Game: Robert Kirkman Speaks

Quickly becoming a cross-media pop-culture phenom, we learned last month that The Walking Dead would be making the inevitable jump to video games. Now, Robert Kirkman, creator of the original comic book and the highly-popular TV series has dropped some details on the upcoming shambling-shooter of a game. Set for a release this Fall to coincide with the return of the TV series for its second season, Telltale Games, best known for adventure games like Sam & Max and the recent Back to the Future, will soon release The Walking Dead as an episodic game, running multi-platform. In an interesting twist, the game will actually adhere to the canon of the comic series, rather than the acclaimed TV series on which it's tentpolled. While no substantive details have been released about the game, Kirkman does make some promises about where it's heading. Hint: It will involve a lot of gory messes.

Rage Comic Series Announced

It seems that upcoming id Software first person shooter RAGE will be hitting another platform besides the consoles, PC, and Mac; this time on a comic book. Whetting the appetites of the PAX East atmosphere, Publisher Bethesda Softworks made the announcement of a partnership with Dark Horse Comics to adapt the post-apocalyptic frag-fest that will serve as the spiritual successor of classics like Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake. The three issue comic series will be a prequel to game's storyline in which an asteroid-devastated Earth in the near future has become a horrid wasteland under the tyrannical control of a global military dictatorship called The Authority. The game's creative director Tim Willits is on board the comic, with writer Arvid Nelson (Rex Mundi) and penciller Andrea Mutti (DMZ) in a storyline promising "a new twist" on the typical futuristic survival drama. Check out the full promotional image below.

X-Men : First Class Trailer Hits

The debut trailer for X-Men: First Class has arrived! After Fox tormented fans all day by coming through quite late with the promise of posting the heavily-anticipated trailer on the film's Facebook page, the clip has finally made its debut. What we've heard so far about the film depicting the beginnings of the X-Men team, set in 1962 has been puzzling considering its cast of characters. The folks behind the film have been quite clear that, despite some pretty gaping anachronistic character appearances, this would still be a direct prequel to the X-Men films of Bryan Singer and Brett Ratner, which were also branched-off in Gavin Hood's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. So, how will this prequel helmed by Kick-Ass director Mathew Vaughn stack-up in a field of comic book movies that's heating-up in 2011 and will only explode in 2012? Let's get a look!

The Avengers To Be Joined By Quasar?

It seems that the cast of The Avengers could continue to grow. News is going around about a supposed prematurely-leaked press release which names actor Kevin Pennington (Horrible Bosses, 90210, Miss March) as the newest addition to the mega-cast, playing S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Wendell Vaughn. Of course, to comic fans, that name may ring a bell as the alter-ego of Marvel's cosmic-powered enforcer Quasar. Coming just days after the legitimate reports of Cobie Smulders being in final negotiations for the role of Agent Maria Hill, the alleged addition of Pennington, is nevertheless still an unconfirmed rumor. So, with still no signs of cameos by signature Avengers founding members Ant-Man or Wasp for the film, could Marvel be going overboard in stacking this film with obscure comic nods?

Super Bowl Movie Trailers: Breaking It Down

Apparently a somewhat popular athletic competition took place over the weekend. And no, not the one where Anderson Silva knocked-out Vitor Belfort with a kick to the face. Rather, it was the one that came after Christina Aguilera pulled a Frank Drebin with the National Anthem in four quarters of NFL action in which the Green Bay Packers emerged victorious after an ultra-competitive game over the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, besides the Big Game being known for those fancy ads in which an ungodly fortune is put behind by companies to let everyone know they mean business, it's those fanboy-teasing trailers for movies which won't even hit theaters for about six months that has an appeal unto itself. We're going to take a look at five of them and see if they measure up to the hype.

The Avengers Casting For A New Female Role

It appears that Marvel's monolithic mega-movie, The Avengers, will be looking for another lovely actress to join its team of super-powered agents. According to The Hollywood Reporter, screen tests will take place Friday for what may be one of the final slots for the Avengers team. At this point, the process is apparently narrowed-down to four actresses: (pictured left to right) Morena Baccarin (V), Jessica Lucas (Melrose Place), Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), and current "it" girl, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Thing). While the exact identity of the role in question is still unknown, Samuel L. Jackson may have shed some light on the mystery on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, when he revealed that a "new" role would call for a female "sidekick" to his Nick Fury character. However, for all we know, the role could still be for the conspicuously missing (up to this point,) key Avengers team member Janet van Dyne aka The Wasp. It's still somewhat under wraps.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Joining The Dark Knight Rises? Who Should He Play?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has found himself the center of the latest rumors for The Dark Knight Rises. The folks at Deadline report that director Christopher Nolan is looking to bring the actor, who starred in his film, Inception, on board his third and likely final film in the current Batman series. The identity or the nature of the role remains unspecified, however Deadline's source has went so far as to say that Levitt and Nolan are "in talks" for the role. Possibly validating the claim, is the idea that Levitt would prospectively be finished his role for Looper, in which he stars with Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, just around the time shooting would begin over at The Dark Knight Rises. It would be easy to dismiss this as yet another one of the crazy rumors that have fixated on this film over the last few years, but it seems to have a ring of truth and comes from a solid source. So, what role would he possibly play in this already crowded field?

Wolverine 2: Screenplay Finished, Shooting In January

Hugh Jackman is apparently "really, really pumped" about playing Wolverine again. -- Just ask him. In an interview with The LA Times' Hero Complex, the Aussie actor describes the process he's underwent in preparing for his return to the universe where super-powered mutants roam the world in snazzy leather outfits. Shooting should soon begin for the Darren Aronofsky-directed "sort-of-sequel" titled The Wolverine and for Jackman, the mandate he was handed-down will require him to be physically bigger than he's ever been. In fact, revealing that he's on a diet of 6,000 calories per day, coupled with intensive weight training, the actor has every intention of arriving on set in a shape that's more comic book-accurate, for a film that just about everyone behind-the-scenes is painting as one of the most ambitious dramatic frame-to-film adaptations ever conceived. So, is Jackman channeling his inner-Schwarzenegger? Or is something more poignant at root?
