Avengers: Infinity War and its now untitled sequel are set to mark the culmination of everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has built since its inception in 2008 with Iron Man. But what is meant to be an ending to over a decade of films will also be a fresh start for the MCU, according to the directors of the upcoming Avengers films.
Joe and Anthony Russo, speaking with IGN ahead of the home release of Captain America: Civil War, spoke to the ability of the MCU to simultaneously pay off storylines that run for years while setting up the universe's future. The two directors had the chance to do just that with Civil War, introducing both Spider-Man and Black Panther, both of whom will be getting their own solo films, into the MCU — and, according to them, the next two Avengers films will offer a similar opportunity.

The duo star in the new series from The Office and Parks and Recreation's Mike Schur, which sees Bell's character Eleanor Shellstrop sent to the "good place" after she dies.

Pokemon Go developer Niantic Labs has begun "taking action" against the game's cheaters, according to a new post on the company's website for the game. Those caught "taking unfair advantage of and abusing Pokemon Go" will have their accounts terminated.
There are many ways for players to cheat in Pokemon Go, and if Niantic's system determines a player has been using any of those methods, they'll receive an email stating that the account in question has been terminated.
"Our main priority with Pokemon Go is to provide a fair, fun, and legitimate game experience for all players," Niantic said in the blog post. So that means no desktop emulators, no automated bots, and no Pokemon trackers are allowed.
A feature-length animated Godzilla movie is in development at Toho, the Japanese creator and home of the King of the Monsters, and will be released sometime next year.

Emmy Award-winning actor Aaron Paul may be known for playing one of TV's baddest bad boys, but he's really a good guy. Not just because he voices one in Square Enix's upcoming film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. (He plays the part of Nyx Ulric, the movie's earnest main protagonist). He actually risked his life once to save another person. We got a chance to ask Aaron about that, why he chose to do Kingsglaive, and what he thinks of the current US presidential election.
IGN: I was at the Final Fantasy XV event in LA back in March, and when they debuted the Kingsglaive trailer, I turned to my friend and said, "Nyx Uldric looks like Aaron Paul." And then seconds later the company announced you were doing the voice of Nyx. Did Square Enix deliberately make the character look like you? Or was that just a happy coincidence?

Disney has filed a patent to allow the company to use drone technology to beam lasers through foggy environments towards someone wielding a custom lightsaber.
According to PatentYogi, the Star Wars-like interaction is achieved by filling an area with vapor, then arming a person with a specially-designed lightsaber that’s capable of transmitting IR lights towards the laser-shooting drones.
The IR rays are transmitted from the saber to the drone, then an IR sensor built into the drone creates a field of view based from where the person is standing, allowing it to – presumably – open laser fire.
