Though it seems like The Incredible Hulk won’t be getting a sequel during Marvel’s Phase 2 cycle of movies (the Phases are the sets of movies released either before or after The Avengers, with movies that occurred before The Avengers labeled as Phase 1, and the upcoming sequels (Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Thor: Dark World) as Phase 2. Phase 3 would be movies that occur after The Avengers 2), there might be some glistening hope for a new Hulk movie during Marvel’s Phase 3 cycle.
Rumor has it that the new Hulk movie will take concepts from the Planet Hulk and World War Hulk storylines, which will then coincide with the other Phase 3 cycle movies Ant-Man and Doctor Strange. Here’s the basic summery of both storylines:
In Planet Hulk, good ol’ Hulk is launched into outer space by the smartest and brightest of the Marvel universe, which includes Tony Star, Reed Richards, and even Professor X just to name a few. Of course, the Hulk doesn’t technically go willingly, but the reasoning for sending him up to space is that he’s simply too dangerous to be on Earth. World War Hulk then continues the story, as Hulk descends back onto Earth with new allies from a distant planet, and then he rages war against the same people who tricked him into being launched to space.
The only potential fallacy in this rumor is that Marvel doesn’t currently own the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises, as well as the timing, as some of the characters in these two story arcs have yet to be introduced. Thoughts?
It appears as if PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale may not be receiving anymore DLCs, at the very least, after the Kat (Gravity Rush) and Emmitt (StarHawk) DLC. The rumor stems from a tweet from Oddworld Inhabitant’s Stewart Gilray, who wrote:
Ah right, yes we were to get Abe in DLC in April or May, but they cancelled us.
Of course, if you haven’t known, the developer behind Sony’s mascot fighting game, Superbot, had a bit of rough times lately, as it has laid off quite a few people recently, as well as cutting all ties from Sony. Tragic ending for Sony’s attempt into the mascot fighter sub-genre, eh?
FutureShop has placed a listing for a Zombi U-bundled Nintendo Wii U system, and for $399.99, you can get a black, 32 GB Wii U console with a copy of Zombi U and a Wii U Pro Controller! Of course, this isn’t really much of a deal, as Zombi U replaces Nintendo Land, and the additional $49.99 for a Wii U Pro Controller had been added to the cost of a deluxe bundle (The Nintendo Land bundle runs for roughly $349.99). Of course, currently, the bundle is only available in Canada, but there may be a chance that the U.S. may have a chance to snag this bundle in the future!
Though it’s sold out at the time of this writing, you can check out the listing here!
The Ouya is one of the most anticipated consoles, and while it is Android-based, the developers have been working to ensure that the Ouya has quality home console-like experiences! For those who’ve backed the project through Kickstarter, Ouya consoles will be given out throughout March, while early pre-order customers will get them in April. If you’d like to purchase one through a retailer, however, you may be happy to know that you’ll be able to begin buying the new console beginning June 2013 for the same low price of $99 USD.
Retailers like Amazon, Target, Best Buy and Gamestop will be selling the Ouya, and you’ll also be able to nab additional controllers for $50 USD each. It also appears like you can pre-order these consoles beginning today at some retailers, with more to follow in the coming weeks!
