"Avengers: Infinity War" To Change Titles

Dark Horizons - 4 hours 4 min ago

"Captain America: Civil War" directors Joe and Anthony Russo have confirmed that they intend to retitle the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War" saga.

Trying to avoid confusion and anger from fans, the 'Part 1' and 'Part 2' monikers will be dropped, Anthony calling it "misleading" and Joe explaining to Uproxx why they intend to change it:

"The movies are two very different movies. The intention is we will change it, we just haven't come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will retitle them."

Filming on both films, whatever they now will be called, kicks off later this year. The May 2018 and May 2019 release dates are still being targeted.

"Titanfall" Developer Plans "Star Wars" Game

Dark Horizons - 4 hours 4 min ago

EA and "Titanfall" developer Respawn Entertainment have officially announced plans for a new "Star Wars" video game described as an "all-new 3rd person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe." Further details weren't forthcoming.

In a statement, game director Stig Asmussen says: "I understand on the surface this might sound a bit dry. But developing a game within the ever-expanding Star Wars universe opens up so many paths for us to go down, and an unparalleled playground to design within. We have already planted the seeds by assembling a small, but incredibly talented team, ready for the amazing journey that lies ahead. With this in mind we are looking to expand the dream."

EA Studios executive vp Patrick Soderlund says: "Over the past few years, I've had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group. Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation. And now, with a new team led by Stig Asmussen, we get to see what they can do when you combine that great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars."

The most recent major game title using the "Star Wars" brand was the multiplayer-only "Star Wars: Battlefront" which came under fire for its lack of a campaign. It sounds like this will attempt to address that issue, whether it will match Battlefront's acclaimed graphics hasn't been revealed.

"At the time, the Americans were the underdog. It was one of those moments where, against all odds, people came together and did the impossible. A lot of pilots died in this battle. I want to make a monument to them and it would be great to make a movie about it."

The battle itself took place June 4th 1942, six months after Pearl Harbor. The United States Navy, over the course of the following several days, inflicting devastating damage on the Japanese fleet that proved irreparable. It is considered one of the most decisive blows in the history of naval warfare.
