Zack Snyder's Justice League Adds Another DC Character: Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke Is Back – Report

Joe Manganiello is reportedly returning as the deadly assassin Deathstroke for the HBO Max cut of Justice League. This should be treated as a rumor, though a credible one, as Collider cited an anonymous source, with TheWrap corroborating.Hard evidence of the casting is lacking. Along with their anonymous source, Collider cited Manganiello appearing on Twitch with gray hair as the main thing pointing to this information. Manganiello has been sporting a salt-and-pepper beard for years, so it’s tough to call that genuine evidence, but it’s not impossible either.Deathstroke’s time in Snyder’s corner of the DC cinematic universe was relatively short-lived until this point. Manganiello first appeared as the merc in the post-credits scene of the theatrical cut of Justice League. In that scene, Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) was asking him to join his team of bad mean men to fight the newly-formed Justice League.Continue Reading at GameSpot

Is Genshin Impact's Klee Worth Your Time And Money?

Is Genshin Impact's Klee Worth Your Time And Money?

Genshin Impact has undoubtedly had an eventful first month of operation, with millions of players globally jumping into the world of Teyvat. With the passage of time comes the first change of the promo banner for Wishes and an introduction of a new five-star character, Klee.Klee is the featured character on this new promo banner, titled Sparkling Steps. Though you may have already been introduced to Klee and her abilities in the quest “The Mystery of the Girl in Red’s Treasure,” this is the first chance you have to recruit her permanently.The odds haven’t changed for Sparkling Steps compared to the previous banner–your chances of a 5-star roll are still quite low at 0.6%. But, as with the previous banner, if you do roll a 5-Star character, there is a 50% chance of it being Klee. The “Pity Roll” mechanics also come into play here, so if you really want Klee, you can pour all of your resources into Wishing multiple times to have a better chance. (Also, if you didn’t roll a 5-star unit on the last promo banner featuring Venti, the accumulated rolls from that banner will carry over onto this one, making a Pity Roll easier to trip.)Continue Reading at GameSpot

Among Us 'Eris Loris' Spam Attack Bombards Players With Pro-Trump Message

Among Us 'Eris Loris' Spam Attack Bombards Players With Pro-Trump Message

Among Us is under attack from a series of spam attacks which may have already affected millions of games given the immense popularity of developer Inner Sloth’s social murder-mystery game. The spam attack, nicknamed “Eris Loris” bombards an Among Us game’s chat log with a message to subscribe to Eris Loris’ YouTube channel and to vote for Donald Trump in the 2020 U.S. Presidential elections. AGAIN!? TWICE IN A ROW #AmongUsGame #ErisLoris pic.twitter.com/PhM9qyNiUN — TFAnimations (@tf_animations) October 23, 2020 InnerSloth, the developers of Among Us, acknowledged the spam attack on its official Twitter account and says it’s “super duper aware of the current hacking issue[.]” InnerSloth pushed out an emergency server update to try and combat the problem, but it might not be enough. Eurogamer spoke with the alleged creator of the spam attack who explained their motives, which if true, are pretty straightforward. Eris Loris’ YouTube channel already promotes homemade hacks for a variety of different games, and the spam attack is a publicity stunt. The rapid spread of the spam attack in Among Us is in part due to help from volunteers who are contributing servers. As for the pro-Trump message, the alleged creator simply says “I’m a college student and I support Trump[.]” Hello everyone, We’re are super duper aware of the current hacking issue and we’re looking into it. We will be pushing out an emergency server update so people who are in game will get kicked from games. Please play private games or with people that you trust!!! Bare with us!! — InnerSloth (@InnerslothDevs) October 23, 2020 Players are still reporting spam messages in Among Us a day after the developers said they’re rolling out a fix, and InnerSloth says players might get kicked from games as “emergency maintenance” continues. Among Us was originally released in 2018 but has become incredibly popular as people stayed home for shelter-in-place orders during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s become so popular that InnerSloth announced that it will scrap a sequel in favor of improving the base game, which is available on PC and mobile devices. Among Us also got a huge boost in visibility thanks to a recent stream from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) who played the game with popular Twitch streamers to raise awareness of voting in the upcoming election. The popularity of Ocasio-Cortez’s stream has great implications for the future of streaming and politics. [poilib element=”accentDivider”] Matt…

Rick And Morty Is More On Schedule Than Ever, Says Creator Dan Harmon

Rick And Morty Is More On Schedule Than Ever, Says Creator Dan Harmon

Countless movies and television shows are have been delayed, canceled, or changed in significant ways as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Adult Swim’s mega-hit Rick and Morty, however, is doing just fine according to co-creator Dan Harmon.”We’re more on schedule than we’ve ever been,” Harmon said during a virtual panel for PaleyFest NY 2020. “It kind of makes you have to focus on the whole process when you don’t have this office environment anymore. Everyone has to run this bee colony remotely, so the honey just gets made more consistently. It’s working for us.”Harmon said that the team is “very late into the process of writing Season 6” even as he reviews animatics for Season 5 episodes. He also told the panel that the writers don’t map out the seasons ahead of writing them, despite being on Adult Swim’s books for at least a sixth and seventh season.Continue Reading at GameSpot

How To Play Among Us As A Horror Game

How To Play Among Us As A Horror Game

I usually try to hop on Among Us once a week to link up with my friends back home and get rowdy either trying to get away with virtual murder or ratting each other out. But they like to keep things spicy. So, they put together a sort of alternate game mode by customizing the in-game rules and getting us to follow certain gameplay etiquette. And with the vewy scawy Halloween season right around the corner, this makeshift game mode is quite fitting and helps freshen up the traditional paces of Among Us.Basically, think Dead By Daylight, or any similar game, but in Among Us. Here’s the setup: you have one imposter and nine (or however many) crewmates, but the imposter announces who they are right at the beginning of the match. The imposter counts to 10 while the crewmates scramble to get out of sight, complete tasks, hide, and make mad dashes to dodge the imposter once they start hunting down the crew–there’s no voting phase necessary, just survival.What makes this style of play work is the tweaking of the custom rules. Here, you’ll want to have the imposter’s kill cooldown timer set to the lowest possible (10 seconds) so they can really act like a serial killer. However, you’ll have to limit their vision range as low as possible (0.25x) to make it challenging for them to actually find crewmates. To make things a lot more thrilling, we set all players’ movement speed higher (at least 2x, but 3x works too).Continue Reading at GameSpot

Borat 2's Many Incredible Disguises Ranked

Borat 2's Many Incredible Disguises Ranked

We rank all the “Real American Guy” disguises Borat had to don in his Subsequent Moviefilm. Borat 2, or Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm, or several other absurdly long titles depending on the day, is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. Plenty of viewers–fans and detractors alike–are now reuniting with Sacha Baron Cohen’s satirical Kazakhstani journalist, and meeting his daughter, the wonderful Tutar, for the first time.We liked the sequel quite a lot. One of its best running jokes is the fact that Borat can’t go anywhere in US of A without being recognized due to the success of the first movie. Instead, he relies on a series of “regular” American guy disguises to help him do hijinks without being hounded.Of course, some of those disguises are better than others, so we decided to rank them all in ascending order of efficacy, hilarity, and creativity. Keep scrolling for that, and for more on Borat 2, read our review. Be sure to get in a lengthy argument in the comments. And before you continue, be warned that there will be spoilers from the movie discussed below. 10. “A typical Jew” Catchphrase: “Very nice weather we have been controlling”This disguise is so offensive it makes my brain hurt. Of course, that’s the point. And the sweet Jewish ladies Borat meets are one of the highlights of the movie. 9. Uninvited Sound Guy Catchphrase: “Sound problem”Late in the movie, Borat manages to infiltrate his daughter’s interview with Rudy Giuliani. He chooses the surprisingly practical disguise of a sound guy on her crew. Points for efficacy, but it’s not very creative. 7. Cliff Safari Catchphrase: “Hell yeah!”Cliff Safari lasts about as long in the movie as Rudy Giuliani’s deniability once he enters the bedroom with Tutar, but he makes an impression nonetheless. 6. Whatever is happening here Catchphrase: “She 15, she too old for you”When Borat bursts back into the room before Giuliani and Tutar can consummate their union, he’s wearing this hybrid lingerie and tighty-whiteys number, while retaining Uninvited Sound Guy’s beard, wig, and glasses. In July 2020, following the incident, Giuliani described Sacha Baron Cohen’s appearance as “a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit…a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top.” It was a bold choice, for sure. 5. Stephen Miller Catchphrase: “Sorry I’m late”Kicking off the top 5 on the list is the fact that Borat burst…

Rob Zombie's Halloween: 37 Things You Didn't Know About The Slasher Remake

Rob Zombie's Halloween: 37 Things You Didn't Know About The Slasher Remake

Rob Zombie was known throughout the ’90s as the frontman for rock band White Zombie, but by the 2000s he had reinvented himself as a horror director. His first two movies, House of 1000 Corpses (2003) and The Devil’s Rejects (2005) won fans with their mix of grueling B-movie-inspired horror, over-the-top gore, gaudy visuals, and dark humor. His love of the genre was clear and, in particular, his affection for the groundbreaking movies that emerged in the 1970s. So it wasn’t surprising when in 2006 he was announced as the director of a remake of John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween.By that point, there had already been seven movies in the slasher franchise (not including the standalone Halloween III: Second of the Witch). But the previous movie, 2002’s Halloween Resurrection, was a commercial disappointment and critical bomb, and it was unclear with what direction the series would go in next. Zombie took the series right back to its roots and delivered his own very specific spin on this classic story.Zombie’s Halloween hit theaters in August 2007 and was a box office hit. But the movie was–and remains–extremely divisive. It’s a film of two halves, the first being an “origin” story for Michael Myers, which showed how his troubled family life helped transform him into a killer. The second half is essentially a compressed remake of Carpenter’s film, as an adult Michael returns to his hometown of Haddonfield on October 31 for a night of bloody mayhem. But while many of the events are the same and all the familiar characters are in there, the oppressive atmosphere and mix of graphic gore and sex made it unmistakably a Rob Zombie movie.But love it or loathe, Rob Zombie Halloween–plus its 2009 sequel–are a crucial part of the history of this long-running franchise. As with many of Zombie’s movies, the home entertainment releases have been packed with bonus material, including an extensive making-of documentary and director’s commentary. We’ve been back through the behind-the-scenes material to find some of the best, most surprising, and fascinating references, Easter Eggs, and things you didn’t know about the film. And once you’ve read that, check out our guides to the original Halloween and 1998’s Halloween H20. 1. The movie was shot in the same town as the originalLike the first film, Zombie shot Halloween in South Pasadena, California. The house used for the exteriors of the Myers house…
