rumors

It's not news that people care passionately about Spider-Man. With the X-Men, the wall crawler is easily Marvel's most famous hero, so his inclusion in the successful MCU is a win by any standards. Unfortunately, when Tom Holland takes over, it'll be the third incarnation of Spidey since 2002, and people are getting a weary of the reboot glut.

In response to this dread, the internet has responded by releasing endless rumors, seemingly just to rustle nerd's jimmies. Here's the rundown.

A couple days ago, Latino Review released a rumor that Chris Pine would play classic Justice League hero, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and in addition DC was looking for someone to play John Stewart, another human hero with a Green Lantern power ring. Fast and the Furious alumnus, Tyrese Gibson almost immediately started campaigning on his Instagram.

And it looks like it worked, cause he just posted this:

#TheOath has been taken.....

As it stands now, Chris Pine and Tyrese Gibson will be joining Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ray Fisher as Cyborg as DC's Justice League.

Remember that rumored Netflix Legend of Zelda show that Nintendo's president said was not real?  Well, the rumor is back again, this time at Amazon.  A fellow named Lulla at a website called Season Zero is claiming to have exclusive news that the Legend of Zelda show is filming a pilot for Amazon's 2016 new shows.  When asked for a source, Lulla responded with "I’m my own source. 'EXCLUSIVE' means what it means," so take this rumor with a healthy heap of salt.  I guess both Nintendo of America and Amazon are located in the same state, so, there's that?  

Season Zero says the pilot is filming this summer in New York and Savannah, GA, so if you happen to live out in Savannah, keep an eye out for Hylians; they may not just be cosplayers!

Let's be real, this rumor from The Daily Star probably has exactly zero truth to it, so for now let's say there's a slight chance we could be welcoming Queen Bey to the Avengers.  

Apparently, Beyoncé moved from New York to LA earlier this year in order to reboot her acting career, and the MCU might be just the place for her to get her feet wet.  An unnamed executive at Disney was quoted as saying "we would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalogue of comic book characters."  The characters she's rumored to be in the running for are Boom-Boom, Blink, Tigra, or Hawkeye.



As hot of a Tigra Beyoncé would be, these are all pretty ridiculous options.  If she were to join the MCU, who would you want Beyoncé to play?  One of these ladies?  Someone else?

Noooooooo!  If you believed the recent rumors of Silent Hills coming back to life as an Xbox One exclusive, you may want to go grab a bowl of ice cream and some tissues.  The dream is dead.  Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has stated that the rumor is completely untrue.  But hey, at least he's heard the rumor.  Maybe it'll get him thinking about making it happen? [Insert quiet sobbing here]

Take this all with a grain of salt; it's purely rumor, but if it's true we'll be able to dry our collective nerd tears and replace them with delighted, terrified screams as early as next year.

An anonymous industry insider is claiming that Microsoft is trying to buy Silent Hills now that Konami has shut the project down.  If true, the game would become an Xbox One exclusive, and the source claims it could be out as soon as March of next year.  The logic is that the Xbox One is in desperate need of exclusive games, and Microsoft wants to secure a big title in time for E3.  Konami has moved to mobile development, and thus has no need for a property like the Silent Hill series, which they are now in a position to sell for billions of dollars.  Supposedly the PT demo disappeared from the Sony store as a show of good faith in Konami's commitment to the deal.

Can the source be trusted?  This person apparently originally leaked information that the Xbox One would be sold without a Kinect attached during a time in which Microsoft claimed they would never seperate the two.  I wouldn't get your hopes up too high though, it's entirely possible that this is all completely untrue, and even if the intent is there, the deal may not go through.

It looks like Tilda Swinton is beating out Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy and Ken Watanabe for the role of The Ancient One, the mentor and ally of Stephen Strange. Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, is a former surgeon who after injuring his hands, discovers the supernatural world of magic and demons.

The Ancient One helps Strange become Earth's Sorcerer Supreme, and a prime candidate for The Avengers. While, The Ancient One has typically been portrayed as male, Tilda Swinton seems like the perfect choice to play an ethereal, immortal figure not of this world.
