During an IGN interview with Alexandra Shipp, who plays Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse, the actress responded to recent rumors that her character will appear in Fox’s New Mutants movie.
“I can't say very much about New Mutants, but it would be awesome to do a little cameo, a little Where's Waldo?, Where's Ororo? in the background,” Shipp said. “I love Storm as a character. I'd love to reprise her in many different movies and be able to show people different sides of her because she is so multidimensional and I think that the people who love Storm at least as much as I do, really want to see that. We want to see Storm killin' it and kickin' ass. That's the best thing about her, how amazing and powerful she is.”
Destiny's next Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner events have been postponed because of an exploit that allowed players to gain unlimited heavy weapon ammo.
On the Bungie blog, community manager David "DeeJ" Dague said:
"When we learned that some Guardians had discovered a way to earn unlimited rockets, we knew it was time for a bug hunt. Rather than punish players for playing the game in a way we didn’t predict, we’ve been waging an investigation into our code. These things happen, so please don’t panic. We’re on the case - and we’ve slayed more dreaded bugs than these.
Warning: Full spoilers for The 100: Season 3 finale below.
The 100 ended Season 3 on a high note - perhaps the show’s best season finale so far.
This was a really emotional episode, starting with that opening scene between Clarke and a newly de-chipped Abby. Just excellent acting from Eliza Taylor and Paige Turco here, that captured the pain on Abby’s part and the forgiveness on Clarke’s in the wake of all the horrible things Abby did under Alie’s control.
There were a lot of great character moments throughout. After a decidedly rocky road getting here, Bellamy had a really strong moment with Pike, as he told him he was wrong to let himself see things in black and white when it came to Grounders and that he has to live with what he’s done. It was an important moment for Bellamy, even as it felt right that Pike would still insist “It wasn’t the wrong side” and defend his choices as just.
Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.
And with that, Legends of Tomorrow closed out its first season. The show has had a rocky run at best over the past five months, but it really has seemed to hit its stride in the last few episodes. The finale continued that trend with what was easily one of the strongest episodes of the season.
That surge in quality had little to do with the final Vandal Savage showdown. Savage has had his moments this season (mainly in the last few weeks), but on the whole he just hasn’t been the compelling foe and magnetic personality the show really needed. One of my few complaints with this finale is that the writers didn’t give his death quite the gravitas it deserved. This is a villain who has tormented Kendra and Carter for 4,000 years and utterly destroyed Rip’s life. Savage’s death needed a certain poetic justice that this episode didn’t deliver. At the very least, I would have liked to see Mick kill Savage with Leonard’s gun rather than his own. The villain ultimately felt like a plot device that ushered in a larger doomsday scenario for the team to confront.
Marketing materials have leaked Destiny's next expansion, 'Rise of Iron'.
A Rise of Iron poster, which portrays Lord Saladan with a huge hammer, originally sprung up on Reddit. Sources close to Kotaku later confirmed its authenticity, saying that the expansion will feature a new raid - "likely fallen-themed" - and will be "larger than both year-one DLC packs".
On this week's Xbox show, we discuss what we think of Doom so far, including our theories on why Bethesda didn't send out advance copies for review.

When Preacher's pilot begins, it's going to feel a bit different than the start of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillion's source material.
Whereas the first issue of Preacher launches main characters Jesse, Cassidy and Tulip on a road tripping adventure around the US, Season 1 of the new AMC series is largely set in the West Texas town of Annville. In many ways, this season will serve as a prequel of sorts to what fans know in the comics.
"In some ways in terms of Jesse’s journey most of all, it’s a prequel in how we think of it," explained showrunner Sam Catlin. "We really wanted to spend time with Jesse as a preacher. He’s a preacher in name only in the comic book. We never actually see him preach, and so we really liked this idea of having him believe in God and trust God and have an investment in God and see that, and then what happens when the rug is sort of pulled out from under him."
Overwatch is headed to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 24, depending on your timezone.

Despite recent rumors suggesting John Boyega may appear in Black Panther, it looks like the Star Wars actor isn't involved in Marvel Studios' upcoming comic book flick after all.
Boyega's reps have confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Boyega "is not and will not" join Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o and the recently cast Michael B. Jordan in Black Panther. Additionally, the actor's U.K. agent debunked the rumor on Twitter.
The CW debuted trailers for their three new series for the 2016-2017 season at the network Upfront today, including the Archie comics-based Riverdale (From The Flash and Arrow's Greg Berlanti), plus Frequency and No Tomorrow.
You’ll find the trailers for Frequency and No Tomorrow below, but with the trailer for Riverdale not posted online (it’s debuting midseason), read on for my description of what was shown.
The Riverdale trailer begins with evocative images of the town, including a flowing river and happy high school kids, but with a “there’s something not quite right” vibe to it all, as the images flash by quickly. We’re told in voice over “This story is about a town. A small town. Safe, decent, innocent…”
After redesigning Halo 5: Guardians' Forge system "from the ground up" for the Xbox One, 343 Industries will bring Forge — Halo 5: Guardians Edition to Windows 10.
The creation tool—which will be free—will include keyboard and mouse support, increased resolution, and the ability to publish creations to Xbox One. Windows 10 users will also be able to recruit friends to help built, test, and play Forge maps.
"Forge on the PC will finally give the mouse/keyboard editing precision the community has always been clamoring for," 343 Industries UGC director Tom French said. "On top of that, an updated and optimized UI geared towards mouse interactions makes a lot of the inputs in Forge easier/faster than before."
Last year we looked at some of the best gaming headsets available on the Xbox One. Our top pick, at the time, was the Plantronics Rig Flex LX. Since then though, a number of new headsets have entered the market including the updated SteelSeries Wireless line, as well as new sets from Kingston, Polk Audio and Astro.
At $130 MSRP, the Plantronics Rig Flex LX is on the pricier side for a stereo wired headset, but it managed to snag our top spot in our previous round-up due to its combination of comfort, excellent chat quality, and clean, well-balanced audio. You can wear this headset for hours, which you’ll want to do: even on the most bass-heavy EQ setting, lows are nice and punchy without overwhelming the mids and highs, and it’s very easy to hear both small audio details and what direction they’re coming from.
Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron will play a much larger role in Star Wars: Episode VIII as each member of the film's heroic cast is tested.
Rolling Stone reports that Isaac's character is undoubtedly a "far bigger deal" in the followup to The Force Awakens. While rumors suggest his role was beefed up in response to his performance, Isaac claims it's because he's no longer planned to be killed off.
"In the new film, there's a lot more to do," Isaac said of his role in Episode VIII. "What happens now is the heroes get tested. All three of them," he added, noting Poe, Rey (Daisy Ridely) and Finn (John Boyega) will all "get tested immensely."
In the past week, we got the finalized list of new TV shows coming to the broadcast networks (CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX and CW) for the upcoming 2016-2017 season. The full slate include new headlining gigs for Kiefer Sutherland, Hayley Atwell, Joel McHale, Kevin James and NCIS' Michael Weatherly and no less than THREE new time travel shows.
Plus, there are reboots based on popular movies like Lethal Weapon, The Exorcist, Frequency, and Time After Time (one of the aforementioned time travel adventures) and TV reboots like CBS's new stab at MacGyver and FOX's attempt to keep the 24 franchise alive with a new hero and the return of Prison Break.
On the comedy front, Always Sunny's Kaitlin Olson heads to FOX with The Mick, Fargo's Allison Tolman lands on ABC with Downward Dog, and Kristen Bell and Ted Danson look to bring good things to NBC with The Good Place.
TJ Cosplay and Aretmis Costuming have brought Zelda and Hilda from A Link Between Worlds to life in a recent cosplay photoshoot.
The costumes took around three months to make, with the cosplayers saying, "We worked pretty closely together to make sure they both looked coherent and like they were a set."
Check out the pictures, which were, fittingly, taken in a forest - click right to see more:
The photographer featured is Sean Fernandez.
TJ Cosplay - the Hilda cosplayer - said the hardest part for her was constructing a staff, "It was my first time constructing a prop like that, and my first time wiring and setting up the electronics, as well as welding the base for the triforce. Thankfully it all worked as I had imagined."
Feeling disgust is rarely a fun thing, but Mass Effect: New Earth somehow made that work.
Mass Effect: New Earth is a “4D Holographic Journey” at the amusement park California’s Great America in Santa Clara, California. Like other 4D rides, riders wear 3D glasses and sit in seats that spray water and scents, poke riders with bumps in the seat, and shoot bursts of air at riders' legs and feet. It’s gimmicky, but surprisingly immersive.
Warning, spoilers for the ride below.
Upon entering the ride I found myself reunited with Commander Shepard's biggest — and craziest — fan, Conrad Verner. An actor playing Conrad stood in front of the screen and guided us through our adventure. Somehow, Conrad managed to become captain of a tourist ship going to Terra Nova via Mass Relay, and I was on it. As you could imagine, it didn't go well. Shortly after getting to Terra Nova, the Reaper attack begins.
Ubisoft Motion Pictures and 20th Century Fox have debuted a new Assassin's Creed movie poster showing Michael Fassbender's character perched high above the city.
The film, which will premiere December 21, sets Fassbender as Callum Lynch—a man who discovers he's descended from a 15th Century assassin. Using a technology that unlocks genetic memories, Lynch is able to use the knowledge and skill gained from his past to take on a "powerful Templar organization" in the present day.
One probably guessed this was on the way, given Supergirl's new move from CBS to The CW for its second season -- and The CW releasing their fall 2016 schedule featuring four of its five weekday nights kicking off with a DC Comics series -- but a giant four-show mega crossover event is headed our way that will bring together Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
On a conference call with the press this morning, CW head Mark Pedowitz confirmed that all four of their Greg Berlanti-produced DC series will join up for one big story. Said Pedowitz, "Just imagine what our superhero crossover episode is going to look like come December," while also referring to the crossover as "the biggest one ever."
