  • Iron Man 4′ Release Updates: Fate of the Clamored-For Movie Still Uncertain

    Facebook/Iron ManDespite the clamor of the fans, “Iron Man 4″ is still up in the air.

    While there are rumors claiming that the highly anticipated “Avengers: Infinity War” will feature the death of some Marvel superheroes including Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), many are still hoping that a fourth solo “Iron Man” movie will be made. However, with Marvel Studios mum on the status of the clamored-for movie, it goes without saying that the fate of “Iron Man 4″ is still very much up in the air.

    Talks about “Iron Man 4″ have been around for years now, but neither Marvel Studios nor Downey Jr. has given a concrete statement to confirm if it is, indeed, happening. To recall, Downey said during his guesting on “Ellen” in 2014 that there was going to be one, only to sing a different tune in a separate interview last year while promoting the then-upcoming “Captain America: Civil War.”

    “I don’t think that’s in the cards. In a way it’s ‘Cap 3′ but for me it’s like my little ‘Iron Man 4′ and then it’s back to the thing we all recognize. Everything pulls over to the side of the road when the thunder of an Avengers thing comes through because that’s how it is until it changes. If it changes,” Downey told USA Today in March last year.

    However, according to recent reports, there is still a possibility for “Iron Man 4″ to happen after all. As the comic book counterpart of the Marvel superhero character features Tony Stark passing the baton to Riri Williams as the new iron-clad superhero, the fourth solo “Iron Man” movie may be Downey Jr.’s swan song as Tony Stark and Iron Man.

    On the other hand, some suspect that Tony Stark’s passing of the baton to Riri Williams may not necessarily happen in “Iron Man 4.” After all, among t many characters suspected to die in “Avengers: Infinity War,” rumors claim that Iron Man is the likeliest. This means that there may be no more chance for Tony Stark to officially pass the legacy of his alter ego in another solo “Iron Man” movie.

    Will Tony Stark really die in “Avengers: Infinity War?” Is there still a chance for “Iron Man 4″ starring Downey for the last time?

    Fans can only speculate for now.

  • Dragon Ball Super’ Spoilers: Goku To Face An Opponent Even More Powerful Than A God Of Destruction

    If there’s one thing that sets apart “Dragon Ball Super” from other iterations of Akira Toriyama’s massively popular creation, it’s that it shows fans what real power is like.

    For decades, fans were left in awe as Goku faces villain after villain each more powerful than the last and every time as if by miracle, defeats them. The latest iteration of the beloved anime throws all of that out the window with the gang facing literal Gods. If the spoilers are to be believed, Goku is about to come face to face with that power.

    Episode 108 showcased the power of the Omni-Kings when Frost, a warrior from Universe 6, was simply erased from the multiverse to keep order. Sure the Omni-Kings have destroyed entire universes such as Universe 9 in the series, but this is the first time that they specifically targeted an individual.

    While not as powerful as said Omni-Kings, a God of Destruction is also a force to be reckoned something Beerus showed fans during his time as the main antagonist in the “Dragon Ball Super”. But now Goku must face an opponent even more powerful than a God of Destruction.

    Back in episode 106, Beerus grew anxious after Grand Priest Daishinkan updated the Omni-Kings on the latest standings of each participating universe in the Tournament of Power. It was later revealed that two fighters are missing from the standing and one of them is believed to be the powerful mortal who defeated Quitela, the God of Destruction of Universe 4.

    This could very well be the reason why Goku was unable to beat Jinren. After all, it is possible that the people behind the series are reserving the most powerful mortal as the final opponent that Goku, Gohan, or even, Vegeta must face in the Tournament of Power.

    With the warriors of the universes slowly being whittled down to just a few powerful warriors, Dragon Ball Super is definitely gearing up for the biggest fight of the franchise yet.

    Be sure to catch each episode every Sunday 9:15 p.m. ET on Crunchyroll.

  • The Joker’ Plot, Release Date News: First Draft of Script Almost Finished; Production May Begin Next Year

    Facebook/Suicide SquadShown is a scene from last year’s “Suicide Squad” featuring Jared Leto as Joker.

    Since “The Joker” origin movie was announced, details about its production have been few and far between. However, a new update surfaced recently and claimed that the script for this movie would soon be “turned in” so that filming may finally get underway in 2018.

    A collaborative project between Warner Bros. and DC, “The Joker’s” script is reportedly nearing completion. The update was reported by Variety’s Justin Kroll, who said on Twitter that he had learned that the script for the upcoming movie would be submitted to the producers this week. The report also noted that the script’s development was “super fast,” considering that it had only been less than a month since the movie was confirmed.

    Kroll’s intel came as a surprise for fans, especially because when the project was first announced, everything sounded fluid. If it is true that the first draft of the script is already about to be finished, then fans might understandably think that Warner Bros. had actually started developing the movie long before its official announcement last month.

    As of now, the only thing known about the project is that it will be directed by “The Hangover” and “War Dogs” director Todd Phillips and produced by veteran director Martin Scorsese.

    According to reports, the upcoming movie will explore the origins of the Clown Prince of Crime as a child, where some say he might have been the target of bullying but managed to keep a positive perspective in life. This was very far from the Joker that fans know of today, hence, the movie will offer fans a glimpse of how and when the once optimistic young lad turned to the dark side.

    As for its cast, it was previously confirmed that “Suicide Squad’s” Joker portrayer Jared Leto would not play Joker in the movie. There have been rumors instead that Warner Bros. is eyeing Leonardo DiCaprio to star in the film, but the studio has yet to confirm that.

    “The Joker” does not have a release date yet.

  • Dallas Cowboys vs Arizona Cardinals Live Stream Free (ESPN TV): Watch NFL Monday Night Football 2017 Online (MNF Preview)

    NFL Monday Night Football 2017 tonight will feature a big game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Arizona Cardinals. The game has a scheduled start time of 8.30 p.m. ET and takes place from the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The game can be watched on TV on the ESPN network, or online through live stream (details below).

    Both teams come into this Week 3 clash on 1-1, meaning one team will end September in a reasonably satisfying position and a positive start to the season. However, for the loser of tonight’s contest, they will drop to 1-2 and the season will already start to take the shape of an uphill battle to get to the postseason.

    These two teams have met 87 times before in the regular season, with the Cowboys claiming 55 wins compared to the Cardinals 31 (there has been one tied game between the paid).

    Reuters/Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY SportsDallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) throws during the fourth quarter against the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium, Dec. 1, 2016.

    However, even though Dallas has had the lion’s share of wins through the all time series, it is the Cardinals that have had more success in this fixture in recent history. Arizona have claimed the past four straight games against the Cowboys, and they will be looking to extend that run of victories here tonight.

    The Cowboys enter today’s game hot on the heels of last week’s chastising experience at the hands of the Denver Broncos. That 42-17 defeat for the Cowboys was a humbling experience, and will have shown the team just how much further they have to come if they are to get back to competing at the upper echelons of the NFL.

    The Cardinals will have noted that the Broncos kept the Cowboys to just 268 yards last week, and they will be dissecting that Denver performance and hoping to replicate that success in tonight’s Monday Night Football.

    Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott will have an important part to play here tonight. Last week he threw for 238 yards and two touchdowns. So far he has had just nine career road games, and in them he has thrown 14 touchdowns, and suffered five interceptions.

    Cardinals’ OLB Chandler Jones will be pivotal for Arizona, and he will be looking to ramp up the heat on Prescott. Jones has three sacks from his opening two games of the season, and he will be hoping to make it a miserable night for the Cowboys’ quarterback.

    This week, coach Bruce Arians has heaped ample praise on Jones’ abilities, calling him one of the top five pass rushers in the NFL today. The Cowboys must keep him away from Prescott, or it could end up being a long evening for them.

    Tonight’s NFL Monday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Arizona Cardinals has a scheduled start time of 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the ESPN network, or online through live stream by clicking here.

    Square Enix has revealed the details of the upcoming update to its massively multiplayer online role-playing game “Final Fantasy XIV.” The developer has revealed new images from the patch at this year’s Tokyo Game Show along details for its upcoming shooter game.

    Developed with “Final Fantasy Tactics” and “Final Fantasy XII”‘s Yasumi Matsuno as well as Moon Over Tao and Zeram’s Keita Amemiya, The Legend Returns is expected to be one of the most exciting updates to the game.

    For those who weren’t able to catch the livestream of the event, The Legend Returns, also known as patch 4.1, will add a considerable amount of new content to the game upon release.

    According to a new preview site that was put up ahead of the patch’s October release, these include a New Main Scenario and Side Quests – including the return of Hildibrand as well as a new Alliance Raid – Return to Ivalice. An Extreme version of the Main Story boss will also be added and an ultimate difficulty for The Unending Coil of Bahamut.

    A new PvP content will also debut with the patch in the form of Rival Wings 24 vs 24. A slew of new maps and new missions will also make its way to the game upon the patch’s release.

    The patch will also add a relocation feature, allowing players to move their current building to a new area. A storage option will also be added, giving players the ability to clean up the clutter in their inventory by stowing away their items.

    In other news, Square Enix also unveiled a new game during TGS 2017. An intriguing new “survival action shooter” called “Left Alive,” was showcased during the event and was arguably the biggest reveal during Sony’s TGS press conference. There is currently little detail regarding the game although it is expected to arrive next year.

    For now, gamers can look forward to “Final Fantasy XIV: The Legend Returns” update.

  • Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: On Sami’s Return and Tyler Christopher’s Role

    Facebook/daysofourlivesA promotional photo of NBC’s daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives.”

    “Days of Our Lives” spoilers for the week of Sept. 25 reveal that there are a few things in store for the people of Salem. Sami (Alison Sweeney) is set to return in the city, and this will help Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) in more ways than one. Meanwhile, rumors are also speculating that Tyler Christopher’s character may be part of Salem’s influential family, the DiMeras.

    Bonnie (Judi Evans) has been wreaking havoc during the past few weeks. Posing as Adrienne, she has already broken Lucas’ heart. Spoilers reveal that Sami’s return is the perfect time to help Lucas make a comeback. She’s going to find out that Will (Chandler Massey) could be alive, and she will be determined to find out the truth. Considering that Lucas is his father, he will be by her side throughout the debacle that they are going to face in their mission to find Will.

    Furthermore, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Paul (Christopher Sean) will help Sami and Lucas any way they can, while also trying to keep their relationship intact. During the search, Justin (Wally Kurth) and the real Adrienne will go down to Memphis, where the search part will begin. This means that Bonnie’s charade is almost up. Although Lucas might feel relieved that Adrienne did not really break his heart, he will have a hallucination of Will telling him to get back together with Sami.

    In the meantime, further spoilers of “Days of Our Lives” reveal that Christopher’s role is someone named Stefani. Although the showrunners have remained tight-lipped thus far, fans believe that he is going to part of the DiMera family. Personality-wise, Christopher’s character is expected to be funny. Details on his role are scarce, but fans are expecting to see him on “Days of Our Lives” by next year.

    “Days of Our Lives” airs weekdays on NBC at 1 p.m. EDT.

  • Gwen Stefani Blake Shelton Updates: Couple Releases Romantic Christmas Duet For Stefani’s Upcoming Holiday Album

    REUTERS/Mario AnzuoniBlake Shelton and Gwen Stefani released another duet for Stefani’s upcoming Christmas album

    Gwen Stefani is slated to release her new Christmas album titled “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” featuring a new romantic duet that she recorded with beau Blake Shelton.

    The couple collaborated on the album’s title track, which is reportedly composed of sweet and romantic lyrics that seemed to be their declaration of love for each other.

    The HollywoodLife posted some of the lines from the song, where the No Doubt singer sang the lines, “Thought I was done for, thought that love had died.” Her country music superstar boyfriend and former “The Voice” co-star answered her with an equally romantic line, saying, “But you came along; I swear you saved my life.”

    The line seemed to be a reference to the real-life relationship between Stefani and Shelton that began in 2015. They announced that they are already seeing each other just a few months after the “Hollaback Girl” singer filed for divorce from her husband Gavin Rossdale. Shelton was also fresh from his own separation at that time with estranged wife Miranda Lambert.

    Fans of the singers can also notice another swoon-worthy line in the song, which stated, “I want to thank the storm that brought the snow / Thanks to the string of lights that make it glow / But I wanna thank you, baby / You make it feel like Christmas.”

    Rolling Stone revealed that Stefani and Shelton co-wrote the song with Justin Tranter and music producer Busbee, who also co-produced the album with Eric Valentine. The publication also mentioned that there will be five other original tracks in Stefani’s upcoming album, as well as the singer’s rendition of several Christmas classics such as “Silent Night,” “Let It Snow,” as well as “Jingle Bells.”

    Stefani will drop her upcoming Christmas album through Interscope Records in various record stores starting on Friday, Oct. 6.

  • Fear The Walking Dead’ Spoilers, Plot News 2017: Alicia Takes Over as Leader; Will She Survive?

    The ranch is in grave danger in the upcoming episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” season 3, but the group has no idea what they will be up against.

    Alicia Clark (Alycia Debnam-Carey) will assume as the temporary leader in the episode airing Sunday, Sept. 24 as Nick Clark (Frank Dillane) and Jake Otto (Sam Underwood) leave the group at the Broke Jaw Ranch to take care of a sensitive situation.

    Alicia, however, might not be up to the task as new photos AMC released showed the youngest Clark trying her best to fight the threat. Her eyes, however, show great fear. Will she survive this threat long enough to see the larger world hinted in the sneak peek from AMC?

    Facebook/FearTWDAlycia Debnam-Carey plays Alicia Clark on “Fear the Walking Dead” on AMC.

    Jake talked to Alicia about this new community before he left with Nick. She’s convinced they are in a livable place in the ranch but Jake knows there’s a bigger and better place out there.

    Meanwhile, their families continue to thrive in the militia-ruled ranch despite earlier tensions with hostile occupants. Surprisingly, Troy Otto (Daniel Sharman) will return with Nick and Clark after being forced out by another group.

    Despite these interesting developments, however, “Fear the Walking Dead” faces a tougher challenge with ratings this season. The numbers for the show continue to drop even as Forbes stated this has been the best season so far in terms of story development.

    AMC has not yet confirmed the status of this spinoff to “The Walking Dead” for next season vis-à-vis its production cost. The ratings might be down compared to season 2, but “Fear the Walking Dead” is still one of the cable network’s popular show.

    “Fear the Walking Dead” will return with a new episode on Sunday, Sept. 24 at 9:00 p.m. EST. The show also stars Kim Dickens (Madison), Colman Domingo (Strand), Ruben Blades (Daniel), Mercedes Mason (Ofelia), Danay Garcia (Luciana), Lisandra Tena (Lola Guerrero) and Michael Greyeyes (Qaletqa Walker).
