Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Reynolds Trade Superhero Roles in Awesome Fan Art

Celebrities going back and forth on Twitter is not news. However, it becomes news when Bosslogic gets involved and makes incredible fan art about it! Chris Hemsworth recently made a quip about taking over for Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool since Hemsworth’s son attacked him. Reynolds then responded by saying that his daughter stabbed him in the eye and so he’ll be happy to swap roles. As always, the art is great fun, and I want some kind of video making fun of this. Especially since Reynolds has an eyepatch with a unicorn on it.

So @chrishemsworth and @vancityreynolds on twitter be like..... (SWIPE)

This Banjo And Accordion Version Of The KNIGHT RIDER Theme Is Pretty Amazing

I didn't know what to expect when I clicked on Banjo Guy Ollie's Knight Rider cover, but I can certainly confirm I didn't expect to like his version better than the original. A banjo and accordion rendition of the song doesn't really fit the theme of the show, but it sounds pretty amazing to listen to! Check it out below, and be sure to give this video some love because I really want to hear this guy do more television themes on the banjo!

If you don’t see it, don’t worry. A Redditor by the name of TheBigG1989 put up a comparison of the two so we can all appreciate it.

Fusion Reborn homage in Power Rangers comics from r/dbz

As you can see there are too many similarities to just be a coincidence with the most crucial one being the Green Ranger and White Ranger performing the fusion dance! Are there other homages that you’ve seen in these comics that maybe we missed?
 

SNIPER: GHOST WARRIOR CONTRACTS Announced For A 2019 Release

CI Games has announced the latest entry in the Sniper franchise called Sniper: Ghost Warriors Contracts. The studio revealed that the game will take the series into a “new direction” and will introduce new gameplay mechanics that “delivers tense, mission-based scenarios with CI Games’ best sniping ever.”

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts will include optional secondary objectives that players can pursue in single-player mode. Completing secondary objectives will reward players with more bonuses. Moreover, the ability to re-play an accomplished contact gives players the ability to adjust their strategies and approach the mission in an entirely different way. 

In a statement by CI Games CEO Marek Tyminski, it was revealed that the studio was “too ambitious” with the scope of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, which resulted to criticisms about numerous issues encountered by players. This time around, the studio is aiming to provide focused gameplay that would offer tons of replayability options. 

“Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will be more focused on emergency gameplay with an open-ended mission design that the team feels strong about, but it will not be set in an open world. It is going to be more tactical, more condensed experience and the game will offer plenty of replayability, both on the single-player campaign and on the multiplayer modes.”

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is set to launch sometime in 2019 for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

PUBG is undoubtedly one of the hottest games right now in PC, console, and mobile gaming. In a recent announcement by the PUBG Corp., it was revealed that the mobile version of the game has reached over 100 million downloads, four months after it was released in March. The impressive part of this announcement is that this figure does not include downloads from China, Japan, and Korea. 

PUBG Corp. and Tencent, the developer’s partner in China also revealed that PUBG Mobile became the most-downloaded mobile game” in more than 100 countries during its launch week. It was also reported that the game sees up to 14 million active users on a daily basis. 

“We will continue to set the bar for mobile gaming and look to deliver even more great contents to our players later this year,” PUBG Corp. said in a statement. 

The success of mobile ports of games such as PUBG and Fortnite shows how the mobile gaming industry is expanding their reach. In fact, just last year, giant console developer Nintendo has announced that they are interested in venturing into mobile gaming soon and has since released an Animal Crossing game on mobile and plans to launch a Mario Kart for the platform as well. 

PUBG is now available on the PC, Xbox One, iOS, and Android devices.

The Ultimate Predator Looks Pissed in This New Promo Spot For THE PREDATOR

We've got a brief new promo spot for you to watch today for The Predator and it features a few new shots from the film including one of the Ultimate Predator looking pretty pissed off. I know not a lot of people are excited about this movie, but I am! I'm a big fan of the films that Shane Black as made and I looking forward to seeing how his Predator movie turns out. 

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.

The movie stars Boyd Holbrook (Narcos, Logan), Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Jacob Tremblay (Room), Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Sterling K. Brown (The People vs. O.J. Simpson, This is Us), Keegan-Michael Key, and Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica).

Black co-wrote the script with his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker, and it will be released in theaters on September 14, 2018.
