Really, it's just the helmet that looks weird. Too Magneto.
Not only is Oliver Queen getting a new costume for this season of The CW's 'Arrow,' but so is John Diggle. Now we have a sneak peek at Diggle's weird new look.

It's Amadeus Cho!
Although many Marvel fans had already correctly guessed the new identity of the Totally Awesome Hulk set to appear in a new comic this fall, Marvel has finally announced that the new Green Goliath is Amadeus Cho.

Yeah, I'm going to have to get this game on my phone. 
Video gamers who would like to embrace their more violent tendencies have a game made just for them: 'Cute Things Dying Violently' is now available for PC, iOS and Android.

Considering an Xbox One as a present to myself this holiday season. I have the PS4. But I'm still iffy on new games for the system. But backwards compatibility is awesome.
Microsoft has just announced that 'Borderlands' is now available through the backwards compatibility preview program for Xbox One and will also be available when backwards compatibility officially launches later this year.

Looking forward to this one!
'SOMA,' the new upcoming video game from the creators of 'Amnesia' and 'Amnesia: The Dark Descent,' just released a new trailer showing off the game's cold, isolated and stark environments.

I'd say this series was the surprise hit of last season.
In the first trailer for the second season of The CW's 'iZombie,' Liv eats the brains of a frat boy and an old man and jokes about wishing she could eat Ravi's brain.

I only got around to watching the first couple of episodes, but I enjoyed it a lot. Glad it's coming back.

For those of you who romanced Triss, it's about to get a lot better. I chose Yennefer, because as the complaints said, it sort of felt like that's what the game wanted me to do. I still ended up with the ending where everyone dies, though, because my Geralt was a big jerk. LOL
In response to players who found the romance options and dialogue in 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' disappointing, CD Projekt Red plans on releasing a new game patch that addresses the in-game romance issues.

I like.
Today, DC Comics revealed the first cover art, a retail variant cover, for 'Dark Knight III: The Master Race.' Here's the first look at cover art your local comic book store could have in stock.

Or in other words, how I wished Interstellar had ended.

Okay, good.  I'm not the only person who wished the movie ended that way...

I'm thinking the rumors, this time, are true. And that would make for a good movie.
Actor Liev Schrieber, who portrayed Sabretooth in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine,' recently hinted on 'The Tonight Show' that the next and last 'Wolverine' film will cover the 'Old Man Logan' story from the comics.

In case you're keeping track of all the backwards compatible titles.
At this year's E3, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One would feature backwards compatibility for previous Xbox 360 games. Here's a full list of which Xbox 360 games are now playable on the Xbox One.
