LEFT 4 DEAD Developers Are BACK 4 BLOOD

Turtle Rock Games/WB:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Turtle Rock Studios today announced Back 4 Blood, from the creators and development team behind the critically acclaimed, co-op phenomenon Left 4 Dead. Back 4 Blood is designed from the ground-up as an original, premium title and marries the best of what made the co-op zombie shooter so successful with new features and state-of-the-art technology.

HELL YES!

PILLS HERE!

It’s All Come to This: New AVENGERS: ENDGAME Trailer

This is mostly a look back at the past eleven years of the MCU here, with some bits of new footage and dialogue in the mix, so those who are worried about spoilers – rest easy, this trailer is more about the tease and excitement than anything else.

That said – damn thing still gave me goosebumps by the end.

43 days to go.

EDIT: Here’s a Poster, too. Errybody’s here.

Dope New CORNETTO TRILOGY Posters From Mondo

Mondo:

Tomorrow we have an excellent set of posters based on Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy by Johnny Dombrowski! We’re continually blown away by Johnny’s illustrative prowess and his note-perfect interpretations of modern films as classic comic book covers. As iconic genre staples, SHAUN OF THE DEAD (horror), HOT FUZZ (crime), and THE WORLD’S END (fantasy) lend themselves beautifully to EC-inspired comic cover treatment.

Damn, I love these a lot. Alas, I can’t swing the set. But know that I am jealous of those who can.

SHANG CHI to Enter the MCU, and He’s Got a Director

Deadline:

Marvel Studios is setting Destin Daniel Cretton to direct Shang-Chi, its first superhero movie tentpole franchise with an Asian protagonist. Cretton is directing Just Mercy, a film he wrote that stars Brie Larson and Michael B. Jordan.

This is in keeping with the studio’s goal to take Shang-Chi in a direction like Black Panther and populate it with Asian-American talent. When Deadline first revealed the project late last year, the studio had set Chinese-American scribe Dave Callaham to write the screenplay.

Man, Shang-Chi is going to be a hard needle to thread here. I do not envy their attempt to make the character something beyond a Bruce Lee-rip-off.

If they nail it though? That’s another hero for an under-served section of fandom.
