Natalie Portman is Lois Lane and Darren Aronofsky set to direct Superman? Oh my…

Word has reached my ears that that the lovely and talented Natalie Portman is in the running of playing Lois Lane in the new Superman film. And if Darren Aronofsky is actually set to direct the film she may very well get the part. The reason why is because she is starring in his new film Black Swan.

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse Review

Superman/Batman Apocalypse is the sequel to the previous Superman/Batman team-up Public Enemies and this is the 9th direct-to-video from the DC animated universe; it just begs the question, where is Marvel?

I shall truly miss this series as it was one that told an epic story provided with great gameplay. Bungie does not fail to deliver! (more…)

Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions Review

Spiderman has had a countless amount of success in the video game world for the last decade or so. This game actually reminded me of the Spiderman game that came out in 2000 for N64 and Playstation. Most of the Spiderman games that have come out over the last couple of years have primarily dealt with being an open sandbox type style of gameplay, but this game takes you back to the time when you were restricted to levels without open-city area gameplay (probably why it reminds me of the Spiderman game from 2000).
