To ‘Infinite’ and Beyond: Ranking Marvel’s ‘Infinity Saga’

The end has finally come for Marvel’s Infinity Saga: a three-act, franchise-spanning meta-narrative that stretches all the way back to the first Iron Man and has informed, inspired, crossed streams with or retroactively written itself into every single one of the twenty-two (going on twenty-three) movies released in the mega-franchise to date. It is a monstrous undertaking of filmmaking, a colossal testament to its audience’s attention span and honestly one of the most singularly impressive spectacles to ever come out of Hollywood when all is said and done. And here, for the last time, is how the so-called “Marvel Experiment”

Mark Wahlberg in Talks to Replace Chris Evans in the Immortal Warrior Film Infinite

A few months ago, we reported that Chris Evans was hired on to star in the Antoine Fuqua directed thriller Infinite. Variety now reports that Evans is out due to scheduling issues, and Mark Wahlberg is in talks to take his place. Here’s the synopsis for the film:

“[The] script centers on a group of near-immortal men and women who are reincarnated over the centuries and known as ‘the Infinite.’ To defeat an evil mastermind who wants to destroy the planet, the group must rely on a man who suffers from schizophrenia and will have to learn that all his vivid dreams are actually memories from past lives, in order to defeat the villain.”

This sounds like a pretty far out story, but Fuqua is a fantastic director, and I like Wahlberg as an actor, so I think it will be worth giving it a shot.

Matthew Byrd Jun 6, 2019

E3 has always been about the surprises, but these are the reveals that truly stole the show.

At the end of the day, E3 is all about the big reveals. Nobody really cares all that much about what Dlc a studio is releasing for their dwindling games as a service title or what celebrity a company paid to shill their new title.

New BioShock Game May Release Late 2019 Or Early Next Year

For six long years, BioShock fans have been left hanging on tenterhooks awaiting even the smallest morsel of information regarding a sequel.

In 2013, Irrational Games released BioShock Infinite to near-universal acclaim, continuing the series’ hattrick of success stories beginning with the original title more than a decade ago. Despite trading the undersea dystopian Rapture for the sky-scraping city of Columbia, Ken Levine and the rest of the development team had all but secured the series’ future. At least, that’s what we all thought. Though a prior report by Kotaku has since indicated that publisher Take-Two has already formed a “top-secret” studio and task force to spearhead the next installment, details on the supposed project are still frustratingly thin on the ground.

However, during its recent earnings call to investors, Take-Two Interactive shared its plans for the current fiscal year, which spans from now all the way up to March 2020. In it,
