Good news, everybody! Remember when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had a handful of mid and post-credits scenes, and one of them teased Adam Warlock? Turns out Marvel and James Gunn are definitely going to follow up on that teaser and bring Adam Warlock into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3!
And he’s gonna be played by Will Poulter. Good for him.
But don’t take my word for it. James Gunn himself confirmed the news on Twitter, after Deadline broke the story. So yeah, Will Poulter as Adam Warlock.
OK. Fine by me. I don’t have opinions on either the person or the character. But you’re damn right I trust James Gunn.
Yesterday was apparently a big day for Sony and Playstation to announce a bunch of exciting new upcoming video games — to come out a couple years from now. So we’ve all got to survive this pandemic to play the likes of Spider-Man 2, Wolverine, God of War: Ragnarok and more! I’m going to do my best.
First up is Spider-Man 2, the sequel to that great Spider-Man game a couple years ago from Insomniac. The Miles Morales game was just as good, in my opinion, but a full-on sequel should be a lot of fun.
We’ve got Kraven and Venom as villains, and those guys are always a hoot. This game should be another instant success.
Next up, Insomniac is making a Wolverine video game! That one is a real surprise.
Wolverine games have a good track record. Say what you will about the movie, but the X-Men Origins: Wolverine game was a blast way back in the day. The fighting, the healing, the gameplay, it was all top notch. And with the Spider-Man games, it’s clear that Insomniac knows how to make a character move around a world. So Wolverine is in good hands.
God of War: Ragnarok got a nice, beefy trailer and it looks as good as expected.
The story seems to have moved forward in some great ways, and we’re actually going to party with the Norse god of war, so that’s neat. This should be another instant classic as well. Playstation really knocks them out of the park sometimes.
The upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy game got a new story trailer and it still looks…iffy.
Fortunately, this game comes out in October, so we’ll actually get to see whether or not this one is any good in a short time. Which is good, because I need a new video game. I’ve been getting by on scraps and old games for like a month now. This game could be fun…or it could be a big, swirling mess.
Lastly, they announced a remake for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
This is going to be remade from the ground up, they say, completely from scratch. They’re gonna redo the entire game with modern graphics and play style. This is fantastic, considering I never played the original Knights of the Old Republic. I tried it once, years after it came out, but it had lost its luster by then and I didn’t get very far into the game. I did play the sequel a couple of times, and that was great! So I’m very excited to try the main game for reals with modern everything.
And that’s about it for game trailers. I think there were more, but these are the ones I’m most interested in. Most of them are years away, but thankfully, I can be pretty patient. Plus it gives me more time to buy that Playstation 5.
Monday saw the announcement of an upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy video game. It’s going to be a single player action RPG where you take the movie-lite characters on an adventure through the cosmos. A bunch of cosmic Marvel characters appear in the trailer…and all of them are from the GotG movies.
Surely the game isn’t restricted to just the movies…right?
Marvel has a bajillion and one cosmic characters out there in the universe. Surely this game has the rights to include more than just movie characters, right? The Square Enix Avengers game included the likes of Ms. Marvel and Kate Bishop, and they aren’t from the movies…though both have upcoming shows. Oh…oh god. The GotG game is only going to include movie characters. Cosmo, Mantis, Nova Corps, Collector…that’s all we’re going to get! Noooooooo!
Join me after the jump to relieve my disappointment with some awesome cosmic characters who I hope beyond hope get to show up in the Guardians of the Galaxy video game!Read the rest of this entry
So this was a surprise over the weekend. Apparently we’ll be getting a Guardians of the Galaxy video game by the end of the year. Produced by Square Enix, it’s going to be a single-player action RPG of sorts where we play as Star-Lord going on an adventure. Huh, neat.
I can’t say the game looks all that great from this first trailer. Square Enix are the people behind that relatively lousy Avengers game last year. Though if I’m being honest, the single player campaign stuff was pretty solid. So if Guardians of the Galaxy is just that, perhaps it will be good.
Looks to be a bunch of running and shooting and dialogue that tries really hard to be as clever and witty as the movie dialogue. That part is probably going to be really cringey. Based on this gameplay trailer, we’ll control the other Guardians on the side of our own running, jumping and shooting.
I don’t know why I’m not more excited for this game. I think I read too many comments from people automatically comparing it unfavorably to the Avengers game last fall. And that’s a legit criticism. It’s got the same not-quite-the-Marvel-movies look and feel, which is weird. It’s like they wanted to make a Guardians of the Galaxy tie-in game like the days of old…but didn’t.
I’ll probably play it and hope for some awesome Marvel cosmic cameos. Though I get a feeling we will only see and interact with characters who have appeared in the movies, like Cosmo, Mantis and the Nova Corps.
Guardians of the Galaxy is set to release in October.
And by “my favorite Quasar”, I of course mean Avril Kincaid, the one people know the least about! Why is she my favorite Quasar? Because I care so very little about Quasar and I find her neat! I also pegged Avril Kincaid as the MCU’s best shot at a solo superhero movie with an LGBTQ+ lead.
At any rate, Marvel has been rolling out the extended roster of Al Ewing’s new Guardians of the Galaxy relaunch in April. It seems they’re just going to group together a ton of classic cosmic characters, along with a few wild cards, to make a big Guardians of the Galaxy team.
As you can see, the team has all sorts of neat characters. Doctor Doom is the biggest surprise, and I’m sure he’ll be fun to read. I haven’t read Guardians comics in a while, so all manner of things have been happening that I have no idea about. Hopefully this will make for a good jumping on point.
I have read very little Avril Kincaid, so I hope she really shines and I can solidify her as my favorite Quasar. The original Quasar and Phyla-Vell are also on this team, so there’s a lot of competition for my favorite Quasar.
