Not only him joins the game, but his DLC pack will include 50 tracks from the SNK games and even a stage based on the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series with many iconic characters in the background.

If you know how to use Terry in his games, you will be able to knock out your opponents easily. In other news, Tuesday is going to be the official release of the Disney+ service. Subscribers who buys the sunscritpion plan will be able to stream Disney movies, cartoons, Marvel and Star Wars.

Are you ready for some magic?
Looks like Spidey won’t be leaving us anytime soon. This spider is here to stay! It’s been announced today that Sony and Disney has settled a deal on Thursday night that Spider-Man will remain in the MCu world with the Avengers. Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman, Feige and Walt Disney Studios co-chairs Alan Horn and Alan Bergman both discussed about the future movies of Spider-Man and finding his place in the Marvel world and they both settled for an agreement. In the summer, Disney-Marvel wanted a 50/50 on the money earned from Sony instead of the proposed 5%. Now, Disney-Marvel agreed to 25% in which they will earn and they hold the merchandising rights. In addition to the deal, it’s been confirmed that they will be doing a third Spider-Man taking place after the events of Far From Home. This new Spider-Man movie will be in theaters July 16, 2021. Kevin Feige even hinted about Spider-Man appearing in Sony’s own Marvel universe such as Venom.
“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
How do you feel about this news?
Things are heating up this upcoming summer for gamers around the world. If you have a Nintendo Switch, you are going to experience some amazing games. If you can’t wait for the upcoming Square Enix’s Avengers game, maybe you can take enjoyment in Team Ninja’s Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order game. This game is coming out on July 19th for Nintendo Switch only. Revealed in the trailer, the game adds new heroes such as Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Ghost Rider and Bloodstone. You can create your team of heroes and fight against villains like Thanos and the Black Order, Magneto, Kingpin and Doc Ock. At the end of the trailer, people who pre-order the game will get access to the teams such as Marvel Knights, X-Men and Fantastic Four.
Taking a break from Final Fantasy, we have the Marvel showing off their long awaited video game project. Marvel is teaming with Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics to release the upcoming video game Marvel’s Avengers. This game will be both single player and cooperative and players will be able to play as the Avengers. You can play as Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Black Widow. According to the trailer, the game will be available on May 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and the new Stadia. People who pre-order the game will have access to the game’s Beta.
Like already mentioned in the title above, Disney announced that their upcoming streaming service Disney+ will begin on November 12th. So if you are a Disney fan who loves Disney movies like cartoon classics, live action, Marvel or Star Wars, you can finally stream your favorite shows and movies in this service. According to the official site, Disney+ will have a monthly price of $6.99. Like other services such as Netflix and Hulu, the service will be available for mobile and TV devices. You will be able to watch shows/movies such as from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.
According to the site, members will have access to exclusive TV shows such as live action series on the Marvel characters like Loki, Bucky and Falcon and even What if stories focusing on Marvel characters. Fox will also be allowing the cartoon series The Simpsons in Disney+. Star Wars is planning on a live action series called the Mandalorian and a new season of Star Wars: Clone Wars.
How do you feel about this news? I mentioned this a while back that once Disney starts this streaming service, this means Disney will also remove Disney content from Netflix in this year. This means that Marvel movies like Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther will no longer be in Netflix and Star Wars movies and TV shows will be gone.
Hey everyone. This is a short post but I am here to show off some gifts I got from my birthday from March. The first person to give me a gift was my friend Allison and she got me an Avengers Infinity War poster and a Pop Funko figure of Kid Goku from Dragon Ball on his nimbus.

From my family, I got a Netflix giftcard, cologne, micro SD card, Spider-Verse movie Walmart exclusive and an Ant-Man and the Wasp figurine set.
Happy 5 Years to my blog! 4/3
Good news for Guardians of the Galaxy fans! According to IGN, the “halted” movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will indeed be using James Gunn’s script. In a interview with Star Lord actor Chris Pratt with MTV, Pratt commented that they plan to do the movie according to James Gunn. He also mentioned that he still cares about him and he believes it’s important for the team to stick together like the Guardians and get the job done.
However, it’s still unknown to who will direct the movie.
If you don’t know why Disney fired James Gunn, Disney found James Gun’s tweets and deemed them inappropriate due to not being civil and polite. In results, Disney fired James Gunn and this caused the movie to be put on pause on production. James Gunn is currently working with Warner Bros and plans to do a Suicide Squad movie in 2021.
Hello everyone! Welcome back for another fun post from yours truly. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I mentioned a while back that I went to see Venom on October of 2018. It was a fun movie to watch and I like this Venom better than the one from Spider-Man 3. When I heard of news of this movie was ready to preorder for the Christmas season, I quickly placed an order from Walmart. For $30, Walmart was selling an exclusive copy which contains the movie Venom for DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital and even an action figure. The Twitter account for Venom even made a fun 90s video commercial promoting the action figure.
Now that I got this, let me show off some pictures!
The box set for the movie is pretty big, but the action figure itself is quite small. The box is usual cardboard and inside the Blu-Ray case which has the two discs for DVD and Blu-Ray and a redeem code for the digital. The Actio figure is small which is the average size of an action figure. Overall, I say it’s a good deal if you want to make use of your money. I will probably do a Venom movie review in the future. For $30, you get all the movie formats along with a nifty figure that is not Pop Funko figure. Walmart does an excellent job on exclusives.
