This is his [Whedon's] response:

“That is not an official thing. But I’m making that an official thing: I’m directing The Avengers.”

After constant wondering from various Film Blog and Web sites.... we finally got a confirmation!

It's about time that this beloved creator of original material is finally getting the recognition he truly deserves.

And Also with the fiasco that was, The development of the live-action "Wonder Woman" film. To me, this is a nice big, FRACK YOU to WB Pictures.

The "Recently Confirmed" Director is mostly know as the creator of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and it's Spin-Off: Angel, The Short-Lived Show Firefly and it's Theatrical Sequel, Serenity, and Most Recently Dr. Horrible and the 2nd Short-Lived Series, Dollhouse.

He also is the Writer of The Highly Praised Marvel Comic's Book Astonishing X-Men, with artist John Cassaday & the successor to the Brian K. Vaughan (Ex machina, Y:The Last Man, LOST) Created comic, Runaways, also from Marvel Comics.   read

Dtoid Users Need Help w/ Mega Man IV Prologue!

What's Up dtoid community, I'm back! and this time i need your help!

A month ago, I announced that my 1st Let's Play is gonna be on Mega Man IV, one my personal favorites in the blue bomber's run. It's True, Mega Man III was the first I played in the legendary franchise, and a Classic I still constantly play to this say. But, Mega Man IV has a bigger place in my heart, due to the fact, It's the first Rockman title I owned!

Anyways, I'm here today to ask the Dtoid community & its users for their help. Sadly, before his (idiotic) suspension from YouTube, Chuggaconroy did a teaser for his LP of Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (another favorite of mine), and had someone read the prologue's dialogue. I'm gonna pull the same thing, but in a different way.....

Im gonna have Various People read a piece of the dialogue from IV's Prologue...

I already post this on ScrewAttack for the g1s to participate, an now it's Dtoid's turn! If anyone one here from Destructiod that wants to join in....

Send me a PM

send Me a message at: [email protected]

IMPORTANT!: Please (in both your PM and E-mail) enter "MEGA MAN IV INTRO." and also, Please include your Dtoid name!

I'm Also letting the Comments at the bottom be optional, but I would prefer either E-Mail or PM. Well that's it from my end. Be Sure to be here tomorrow, because I gonna finally announce whom the BIG guest is for the return of my retro gaming podcast, Under Development!.....

Until Then, I'll see Ya later!   read

My Thoughts on the Mortal Kombat Reboot

Earlier Today, I did my thoughts on this MK reboot over at If you guys want to read it, here's the link:

Like every here on Dtoid, My two favorite fighters from the 90's were (and Still): Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat.

Those Experiences I had playing those two (Street Fighter II and MK) were some of my most memorable from my childhood.

Now fast forward 18 years later. When I was on Joystiq earlier today, I saw this headline: ''Mortal Kombat Rebirth footage gets over here".

Now at first, I thought this was gonna be a first look footage of MK9. Like How they showed the first gameplay footage of MK vs. DC, a week before E3. That's what I thought, Until i clicked the headline to see it was in fact, a live-action teaser of sorts.

When I first saw the intro, I thought it was a fan-made film. A Fan-made film in the same as Eddie Lebron's Mega Man or Street Fighter: Legacy. But a Fan film non the less.

Until, Who better to play Jax is non other than Michael Jai White (Spawn, The Dark Knight) coming out of Lt. Jackson "JACKS" Briggs (Cleaver, Mr. Boon, Cleaver!) Office. This Is starting to get good already :)

Okay... So what else was good?

- A Dark, Realistic tone on par w/ Seven. CHECK

- Fantastic Fight Choreography. CHECK

- A Horrific yet atmospheric score. CHECK

- Ian Anthony Dale as Scorpion. FUCK YES (really cant see him playing Kazuya in that Upcoming Tekken Movie. I'll see it first before ill judge).

- Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade. Surprisely Yes (After seeing her bit part near the end. She did a good job)

- Up and Coming martial Artist Matt Mullins playing Johnny Cage. CHECK.... and dying.... again. FATALITY -__-

I Liked how they also changed both Reptile's and Baraka's Origins/Look in this teaser. The only gripe, I have to say regarding Baraka's new look, is the dreadlocks. He reminds me more of the Predator.

If you guys want to see what I'm talking about. Here's the teaser (courtesy of original YT poster "MortalKombatRebirth"):


Also, If you guys want to see more details regarding this reboot. Here's the article from Latino Review's Own, George "El Guapo" Roush:

So What do you guys think? A good way or a bad way to Reboot The Mortal Kombat Film Franchise?

Finally, My 1st LP is....

If anyone has followed The Geek Fighter's Twitter (@TheGeekFighters), I've been having one Hell of a time trying to record a Let's Play.

The keyword being Try!

First off, when our site launched mid-March, My original plan was to do an LP on PKMN Red. I even had the 1st episode Recorded, Edited, and Ready to be posted on The Fighters blip account (mainly mine XD).

There was One Problem......

Literary, the next day, I woke up and went to my PC. I Then Turned it On. And i Got The Blue Screen of Death.......


I was extremely pissed due to the fact, this PC that just kicked the bucket, was my 5th PC from DELL.

Long Story Short: I went from PC to Mac (WARNING: I don't hate Windows OS, nor any product that Microsoft creates. It's Just after having 5 DELL PCs that were CRAP, who could blame me).

Anyways, after i got my mac mini on May 1st. I scrapped my plans from Doing a PKMN Red LP, and was planning on doing one on, in my own opinion, a highly underrated title from the PSX era...


I've been in love with this game since i got it March 1999. To me, I thought the story had the funny, light-harted parts from the original 8-bit Series, mixed with the dark, mature story telling of the X Series. Legends has one of my favorite Soundtracks in the Mega Man Franchise. Look, I can go on and on about how much i love this game. But, Long Story Short: I sadly No longer have the original copy of this game and since macs are finally getting into the gaming market (PC:1, MAC:0 XD), I was gonna use a PSX emulator (don't worry fellow Dtoid readers. When it comes to emulators, I Never Uses Cheats nor Tools in my LP's). But again, No Luck. The ISO file I had would crash my PSX emulator, and ya I was Screwed... AGAIN!

I Was then planning to do one on the SNES version of Wing Commander (If there successful, i'm planning to do one on Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom later down the road. WC IV is my personal favorite in that iconic Series), but was so upset with the other failures that i just gave up.


I was playing a certain game from my childhood that not only cheered me up, but also gave me the inspiration to give it another go..

Tonight, here on my Dtoid Blog. My First LP is gonna be on.....


Let me explain. I was originally gonna do Mega Man 3, The 1st Title i played in the Blue Bomber's legendary run of games.

But it was Mega Man 4 that won that battle, due to one simple thing...

It Was the first Mega Man game i Owned :)

So expect to hear more announcements regarding the LP of MM4.

As for Me, I'm going to bed. Where i live, it's 12:24 AM (EST) and i'm very tired from not getting any sleep from the night before.

Anyways, I hope the Dtoid Community had a fun Memorial Day Weekend, and i'll see ya later.   read
