We're still a day away from Pokémon's special direct, but supposedly these are leaked logos from a brand new generation to be announced during that presentation.

The images come from supposed trademark filings, and look pretty legit, but before you get too excited, know they were first discovered by Nerd_Leaks, who are brand new to the info leaking game, so trust this info as you see fit.

Get your grains of salt ready, this is all based on rumors from a NeoGAF thread that claims a verified source at Nintendo leaked this info. A NeoGAF mod has backed the poster's claim, but you should by no means assume this means it's all fact.

Supposedly, the NX console (with the new Legend of Zelda in tow) will launch during the holiday season this year. What other games will launch with NX remains unknown, but the leaker did provide a list of 3DS games for the year which includes code-named titles such as "Caviar F," "Torte City," "N-Stars," and "Pokémon Niji," which translates to rainbow in Japanese. The leaker warned that rainbow is just a codename and does not reflect the content of the game, but obviously the internet is stoked about the prospect anyway.

Rumors of a Pokémon Rainbow game have been around for years, but a game celebrating previous generations (hence the rainbow theme) would be well timed for the 20th anniversary of the series.

He certainly has the look!

Bodybuilder and four time Mr. Universe Mike O'Hearn has been making headlines for his campaign to play He-Man on the big screen (yes, that's a real movie that's still really happening). He's been hashtagging his Instagram photos with "#HeManTheMovie," leading some to believe he already landed the role, but it turns out he's just getting ready for when the time comes:

I want to thank all the supporters for sending good vibes in hopes I get the role of He-Man. I am working hard everyday so when the opportunity presents itself, I'll be ready.... To be clear, I do not have the role yet. The Internet is flattering but you can't believe everything you see on there. Again thank you for all of your support!


O'Hearn added that he's previously been considered for other blonde beefy roles in Hollywood, including Captain America and Superman. It's not hard to see why.

If you're hoping to see Star Wars VII on opening night, you better get comfy in front of your computer, because tickets are likely to be on sale any day now.

Screen Crush is reporting numerous signs that point to ticket sales starting on Monday, October 19, but it could be even sooner. A Cinemark Facebook page posted and then removed this graphic saying pre-sale tickets would start on Monday, and AMC theater employees are reporting hearing a similar message from their bosses:



Screen Crush also got their hands on a document sent to major theater chains requiring them to have ticketing information ready by 8:00 AM ET this Friday to be sent to online vendors like Fandango. Tickets may or may not go on sale at that time, but I'd be ready to spring into action any time after that.

Making Star Wars is also reporting the reveal of the official logo and a new trailer to come with Monday night's football game on ESPN (which is also owned by Disney), so if you aren't a football fan, you might want to make an exception (who are we kidding, it'll surely be online moments later).

The ghost of a prequel past is rumored to be haunting Star Wars: VIII and Rogue One.

Take this all with a grain of salt, but apparently Darth Vader himself may be returning to a galaxy far, far away. According to fan site Making Star Wars, a fully functioning Darth Vader helmet and chest piece have been spotted in the props department, and a team of undisclosed professionals are headed to the UK to train Christensen for an appearance in at least one upcoming Star Wars film.

These rumors are pretty flimsy as of now, but it's entirely possible that Christensen could be involved in a flashback scene or a shot of Vader with his helmet off in Rogue One, which takes place between episodes III and IV. There's also a possibility that the film could introduce the dark clone of Anakin Skywalker, but let's not count our midi-chlorians before they hatch.

Would anyone you be excited to see Anakin Skywalker back in Star Wars?
