Warner Bros. appears to have found Wonder Woman’s love interest in the upcoming DC movie.
The Wrap reports Star Trek's Chris Pine has closed on a deal to star as Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman, with Gal Gadot of course playing the titular role. According to sources, Pine signed a multi-picture deal, including sequel options.
In the comic books, U.S. Army intelligence officer Steve Trevor crashes a plane on Paradise Island, Princess Diana's home. She cares for him, follows him home, and eventually becomes Wonder Woman.
Pine was previously rumored to be up for the role of Steve Trevor and was most recently rumored to be in the running to star as Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern Corps movie. It would seem that is no longer the case.

King's Quest: A Knight to Remember is a beautiful experiment in resurrecting the conventions of gaming’s past and dressing them up in the lush graphics available today. For the most part, it works, with this, the first of five episodes, telling a lighthearted fantasy story around simple action and rewarding puzzles about knights and dragons. The middle of its roughly six hours can drag a bit as you hunt down the items you need to progress, but even those are full of detailed art and enthusiastic performances.
As with the classic King’s Quest game from 1984, a Knight to Remember is the story of the likeable but overly excitable Graham, who's working his way toward being a knight (and eventually king). But this new version is a quality reboot that tells an all-new story of Graham’s attempts to outwit four other candidates for an open knight position, and it’s told capably enough that it should be appealing to newcomers as well as veterans. The caveat to that is that there’s no tutorial or even a quest list to introduce new players to the conventions of this old-school-style adventure and guide you through it, which means you’ll have to be comfortable figuring things out on your own.
Collectible company First 4 Figures has revealed its next video game-inspired creation, a statue of Kirby's rival Meta Knight.
The 16-inch statue is cast in polystone resin and hand-painted, showing Meta Knight dashing into battle with a trail of flames and wielding his sword, Galaxia. It's now available for pre-order on the official site.
Steven S. DeKnight was at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour today for a panel devoted to Netflix series showrunners, discussing his time working on Marvel’s Daredevil. While DeKnight has stepped down from that role for Season 2, thanks to prior commitments, he had some time before that next project – which DeKnight isn’t able to reveal details on yet – got going, which led to his recent stint in the Transformers writers room.
Taking a page from how a TV show is run, Paramount assembled a big group of experienced writers to help chart out the future of the Transformers film series, under the guidance of Akiva Goldsman, as the studio looks to build more of an expanded Transformers movie universe. I asked DeKnight what the experience was like taking that TV dynamic and using it in film, and he had an enthusiastic reply.
The latest batch of cars coming to Forza Motorsport 6 has been revealed.
In its fifth week of car announcements, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have pulled back the curtain on a whopping 41 new cars coming to the Xbox-exclusive racer.
The lineup includes two cars from the 2014 British Touring Car Championship: the 2014 Audi #67 Rotek Racing S3 Saloon and the 2014 Toyota #80 Speedworks Motorsport Avensis, both of which can be seen below, courtesy of Xbox Wire.
Here's the full lineup of all 41 new additions:
A remake of the silent horror film Nosferatu is in the works at Studio 8.
Deadline reports the currently untitled remake of the 1922 classic will be written and directed by Robert Eggers. Eggers wrote and directed The Witch, which earned him the directing award at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Jay Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen’s production company, Parts and Labor, will produce the film.
This wouldn't be the first time Nosferatu was remade; Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre was released in 1979.
A company is now selling "flatulence filtering" underwear - that is, underwear that will absorb your farts.
Shreddies underwear has been around for awhile, but today we've learned of the odor-stopping wonder thanks to Geek.com. Shreddies are made special by their "Zorflex" activated carbon panels, which trap and neutralise the scent of a fart. (Alas, the sound will remain.)
With a friendly and accessible approach to card battling and charming hand-drawn art reminiscent of a day dreaming junior high schooler’s sketchbook, Guild of Dungeoneering manages to be endearing and cute in a way most strategic turn-based dungeon crawlers aren’t. Its biggest limitation is a short and punchy style of gameplay that ultimately puts a cap on the complexity and depth of its tactics just as things start to get good.
A humorous take on turn-based dungeon crawling puts you not in the role of a single, glory-seeking hero, but a rejected thrillseeker-turned-guild master looking to steal some glory from those who doubted you. Your goal of rounding up a ragtag team of disposable adventurers and sending them out in search of loot adds some light-hearted justification for the harsh amounts of permadeath in store, making the fact that your guild’s cemetery will largely outweigh the trophy room darkly comic. This setup establishes a playful tone early on, though all the tongue-in-cheek bard’s tunes were a bit overly cutesy for my tastes.
This week, Max, Marty, Goldfarb and Altano have a nice little chat on Rise of the Tomb Raider coming to PS4, China lifting its console ban, and how they feel about the fact that they can romance a whole bunch of people in Fallout 4.
Coming to Amazon Prime in August -- free to watch for Prime members on Amazon's Instant Video app -- are all eight seasons of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm along with excellent Clint Eastwood flicks Unforgiven and In the Line of Fire.

So let's check out August on Amazon Prime...
Yo-Kai Watch has been compared to Pokémon’s success so often that it’s almost a jinx. I myself didn’t think that it would necessarily translate to the western audience the way Pokémon did — yo-kai are part of Japanese folklore, and even after researching them a bit I wasn’t exactly sure what they were. Nothing about Yo-Kai Watch really clicked with me.
After 15 minutes with the game hands-on, it finally clicked. Yo-Kai Watch certainly shares a lot with Pokémon, but its world plays with Japanese folklore in a charming, unique way that sets it apart. More importantly, now I can actually see it succeeding in the West, in part because it explains its world (and what yo-kai are) so well.
It's been a ginormously controversial week in the world of wrestling. One of the industry's most legendary performers was publicly shamed and sent reeling into seclusion. And by this, of course, I mean Dog Ziggler...
Man, they didn't even put a stringy, Ramen-y yellow wig on that mutt! They were just like, "look, it pisses on itself so it's Dolph."
What a bizarre s*** show this Rusev storyline has become. From unbeatable monster to mouthfart love triangle. Complete with Summer Rae getting her face shoved into a dead fish. Followed by vintage "Girl Pauses to Come to Terms with the Reality of Her Current Horror, Then Shrieks Loudly Because She's Most Likely Been Shoved Into/Submerged In Some Sort of Foul Substance." Did Steph do that when she fell into that kiddie pool of diarrhea? If not, then the last time that happened may have been AJ after getting all that liquid poo dumped on her in the ring.
T-Mobile announced today it's adding Apple Music to its Music Freedom free music streaming service. The carrier will also allow new iPhone 6 buyers to upgrade to the next iPhone for free.
The pair of announcements comes as a part of T-Mobile's "Un-carrier Amped" promotion it's been running with all Summer, with these being the last two reveals the carrier has planned. Company President and CEO John Legere detailed the new additions in a blog post today.
Fallout 4 will support mods on PC and Xbox One, but according to Bethesda, the tools and sharing systems don't exist yet.
Bethesda's VP of Marketing, Pete Hines, says Bethesda is focusing on finishing the game first and will shift its priority to creating mod tools in 2016.
"Our entire focus is on finishing the game," Hines said. "Nobody cares about mods if the game sucks. This has always been our philosophy. We shift energy to construction tools, the creation kit, and all of that stuff once the game is done, and we start to figure out what all of that is going to look like."
The studio's priority right now, according to Hines, includes tackling the bug list, polishing the game, and working on the frame rate.
At the Television Critics Association Press Tour this morning, Netflix chief Ted Sarandos was asked how he felt about his company's exclusive four picture deal with Adam Sandler now in light of Pixel's recent underperformance at the box office.
"Thrilled," Sarandos responded. "Not to give you a defensive answer here, but I definitely don't have to defend Adam Sandler. Pixels did $24 million domestic opening; did $25 million international. A third of our subscribers are outside of the U.S., and we did our deal with Adam Sandler because he's an enormous international global movie star."
Oscar-winning actor Tommy Lee Jones has reportedly joined the next Jason Bourne movie. The film will see the return of the star/director team of Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass to the franchise.
According to Variety, Jones has been cast as a superior officer at the CIA in the untitled Bourne film. Previously, Edward Norton, Chris Cooper and Brian Cox have played similar roles in the spy-thriller series.
Jones won't be the only newcomer to join the fifth Bourne movie, however. Ex Machina actress Alicia Vikander is also set to star in the film, and there are rumors Viggo Mortensen may portray the villain.
Two years ago, in an effort to bring more games over to its Andriod-based microconsole, Ouya announced the Free the Games Fund.
The fund promised to match a game's Kickstarter funds if that game remained an Ouya exclusive for at least six months. Now that Ouya has been acquired by Razer, some independent game developers claim they're getting shortchanged.
Free the Games promised to pay developers in segments: half after a playable beta was completed, a quarter once the game officially launched, and the last quarter once the six month period of exclusivity ended.
