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!

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.

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.

First up, it looks like newest SHIELD members, Bobbi 'Mockingbird' Morse and Lance Hunter are going to heading up their own series. The rumors of an Agents of SHIELD spin-off have been circulating for a while, and bringing the super spy, and her on-again/off-again mercenary husband onboard is a move that will closely link these two series. The question remains, what will Mockingbird and Hunter be doing in their spin-off? Will it have something to do with the fallout coming after Avengers: Age of Ultron?

In other Marvel tv news, the man who wrote the screenplay for 12 Years a Slave, John Ridley, is currently working on a secret Marvel project for ABC. While everyone is being tight-lipped about the project, the rumors have started flying. The most likely being an adaptation of Cloak and Dagger or, even more exciting, Marvel's newest hot commodity Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan). There's no news as to how this will affect Agent Carter, which is on the bubble of cancelation following a decline in ratings.

In an interview with Time, Nintendo president Saruto Iwata crushed dreams and dispelled rumors that Netflix is involved with a Legend of Zelda tv show:

In early February, the Wall Street Journal reported that Netflix was developing a live-action series based on Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda franchise. But Mr. Iwata says those rumors are inaccurate.

“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information,” says Iwata.

The show's existence seemed questionable to begin with, but if you're desperate to keep hope alive, note that Iwata does say the rumors are "inaccurate" and not flat out false.  Maybe there is something in the works, just not with Netflix.  Or maybe Netflix is working on something for Nintendo, just not a Zelda series.  Or maybe nothing is happening at all.  There's that possibility too.

GamePointsNow is reporting that the next game in the Borderlands series is going to be a prequel set on the moon, Elpis, and is said to be taking place between the events of the first and second game.

Oxygen will play a huge role in the game, in fact it's actually going to be lootable in the form of OX -Kits.This adds a whole new layer to the combat with you requiring to manage your own oxygen levels while battling your foes, although it does lead to the option of shattering an enemies helmet to instantly deprive them of precious O2 and gain an advantage.

What do you think; bollocks or totally true? If it is true, are you stoked about the idea of Borderlands on the moon?

Stephen Spielberg apparently really wants Chris Pratt for a new Indiana Jones, and according to this clip it sounds like Pratt is game, provided that "it's perfect" (you know, no pressure).  He gently quashed any rumors that it's currently happening saying, "it's all nothing until it's something and so far it's not something."  He went on to express interest though, saying "it'd be cool.  No one's called me, you know, there's a lot of talk about it... the pressure would come just because it's such a great franchise you wouldn't want to get it wrong, so for me it'd have to be perfect to do it."

Keep your hope alive, friends.  Pratt for Jones 2015!

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).

Since the release of Far Cry 4's cover art, internet sleuths have been trying to figure out everything they can about it; is that the player character? What's the deal with that aryan looking tool in purple? Creative Director Alex Hutchinson has done us the service of clearing some of it up:


Meanwhile, plot details for the game have supposedly leaked on a pre-order page for the game in the Uplay store. The now removed description of the game said:

In Far Cry 4, players find themselves in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.

The free Limited Edition upgrade includes Hurk's Redemption, a series of three-action packed single-player missions. You'll embark on an epic quest to find a rare artifact while using "The Impaler" harpoon gun.

I guess we'll just have to wait for E3 to find out what's going on with this game.
