"We didn't want to give people a carbon copy of what we did last time," director Kevin Tancharoen tells me about his team's goals in putting together a second season of the gritty web series, "Mortal Kombat: Legacy." The first season, assembled on what would be considered an ambitious fan film budget with the participation of actors like Jheri Ryan ("Star Trek: Voyager") and Michael Jai White ("Black Dynamite," "Spawn"), set out to assemble a handful of the combatants who would ultimately make their way to the tournament which will determine the fate of Earth. The response was so positive, Warner Brothers, who holds the rights to the "Mortal Kombat" franchise, greenlit a new movie with Tancharoen serving as director--as well as a second season of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy," which kicks off today on Machinima.
I spoke with Kevin Tancharoen recently about developing the new season as well as the status of the film (it's still pretty early).
In the Marvel Universe, Deadpool plays an odd role. As a mutate, he isn't quite a mutant. As a mercenary, he doesn't really align with any particular group, although sometimes he does. As a character, he's unstable and constantly breaks the fourth wall. Since his introduction in 1991, he's been an anomaly, and because of that, he has become one of the most beloved characters to ever have their own comic. Now, 22-years after his first appearance, the "Merc with the Mouth" joins the ranks of other AAA comic legends like Wolverine, Superman, Spider-Man, and Batman, and finally has his own self-titled video game.
It's not surprise that "Kingdom Hearts 3" is finally a real thing. The long awaited numbered sequel to Disney and Square Enix's saccharine storied, melodramatic fated mash up is just on the horizon (the very, very distant horizon). I can't even fathom the number of teary eyed fans that can't wait to hear the next remix of Simple and Clean while wondering what new fan service-y characters will appear in KH3.
Furthermore, now that Disney has effectively so-opted our childhood with Marvel and the recent acquisition of Star Wars we thought it was finally time to speculate like crazy about who should make a cameo in this beloved series.

These fine pieces of costumed play are from the group calling themselves "Love Squad," a Moscow based collective of cosplayers who tackled "Borderlands 2" with this Tiny Tina (r) and Gaige the Mechromancer (l). While it's not the kind of crazy level detail you'd expect to find from the country that gives us elaborate, CG "Half-Life" fan films, the duo in the pictures above are still very good representations of their video game counterparts.
It's not the black helicopters you have to worry about in this trailer for 2K Marin's prequel to 60's-set "XCOM: Enemy Unknown."
Go Home Spider-Man. You're drunk.
Looks like someone didn't have enough Spidey sense to call it quits. In this totally legit and in no way copyright infringing flash game, your friendly neighborhood spider-souse is totally sauced and needs help getting back to Mary Jane.
