'Doctor Strange' Adds 'True Detective' Season 2 Star Colin Farrell to the Shortlist

According to The Wrap, Colin Farrell, who recently landed a leading role in HBO’s ‘True Detective’ season 2, is being considered to lead Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’ movie. 

He joins a shortlist of actors that includes Benedict Cumberbatch (said to be high on the list), Joaquin Phoenix (once thought to be out of the running, but The Wrap reports is still in the mix), Ryan Gosling and Keanu Reeves. 

'Doctor Strange' centers around Stephen Strange, who goes from arrogant neurosurgeon to the Sorcerer Supreme, Earth's defender from supernatural forces and arguably the most powerful being in the Marvel universe. The character was first name dropped in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'

Scott Derrickson (‘Sinister’) is directing ‘Doctor Strange,’ which he said will take inspiration from the ‘Strange Tales’ comic books. 

'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Posters

People are being beheaded in countries right now because of their beliefs or sexual orientations. It’s terrifying. It’s medieval — a beheading! I’d take up arms against someone who was telling me I had to believe in what they believed or they would kill me. I would fight them. I would fight them to the death. And, I believe, the older you get, you have to have an idea of what’s right or wrong. You can’t have unilateral tolerance. You have to have a point where you go, ‘Well, religious fundamentalism is wrong.’

'In the Heart of the Sea' Trailer: Chris Hemsworth in the Story That Inspired 'Moby Dick'

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story.

'Maximum Ride' YA Novel to Be Reimagined as a Marvel Comics Series
As first announced at NYCC, best-selling author James Patterson is working with Marvel Comics to reimagine his young-adult novel series ‘Maximum Ride’ as a new comic series, called ‘Max Ride: First Flight.’
The series, from ’Amazing X-Men’ writer Marguerite Bennett and ’Elektra’ artist Alex Sanchez, “will follow the fast-paced adventures of Max, a teenage girl who, due to genetic tampering, is part human and part avian.”
From a Marvel press release:

Coming in spring 2015, the 5-part Marvel Comics miniseries, James Patterson’s ‘Max Ride: First Flight,’ will follow the soaring adventures of Max and the “flock” – Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel – a group of ordinary teenage kids – only they are the product of genetic tampering that has given them extraordinary abilities, but their lives quickly morph into a living nightmare as they try to escape their creators and defend themselves from half-human, half-wolf “Erasers.” Along the way Max discovers her purpose – saving the world – but can she? Find out next year!

"At Marvel we’re always looking to create bold stories that push expectations and attract new audiences into the world of comics—and that’s what we plan to do with ‘Max Ride,’" said senior editor Sana Amanat. "It’s the familiar world of ‘Maximum Ride’ told through the thrilling Marvel narrative. We’re taking a heart-pounding adventure and giving it an extra shot of adrenaline.”

Does Someone Have to Die Before Gamer Gate Ends?
Brianna Wu is a developer and writer who’s penned pieces on the gender imbalance in modern video games and the harassment women in the industry continue to deal with as part of their daily business. She heads up the small studio Giant Spacekat, makers of Revolution 60, a mobile game hailed as “a most triumphant and excellent adventure” by RPGfan.com and denounced as “a bland, uninteresting, feminism circle-jerk” by Metacritic user Realgamer101. I’m guessing that’s not his real name, but there’s no guesswork required to figure out the poster’s gender.
On October 11, Wu tweeted the above screenshot—a series of threatening messages she’d received from a Twitter account that’s since been suspended. 
Before we go any further, it’s important to ask whether or not you want to read anything more on GamerGate. Since you’re on this page, chances are you’re aware of the sides in this bizarre online kerfuffle, as well as the problem with giving GamerGate any further coverage: These words may be further fuel for a fire that needs to die down before anyone can properly discuss the more pertinent points raised by a still-evolving debate.
If that means nothing to you, here’s a summary: A (formerly) low-profile indie developer named Zoe Quinn created and released a game called Depression Quest. Some people argued that it wasn’t a game at all—but that’s not the controversy. An ex of Quinn’s published information in August of 2014 implying that she had slept around to secure positive review coverage forDepression Quest. There’s no evidence connecting any alleged promiscuity—which, in any case, is nobody’s business apart from those doing the screwing, anyway—with the reception Depression Quest received, but the conversation quickly turned to ethics: As in, some game journalists were seen to be favorable toward certain projects that they were incredibly tenuously linked to. That connection could be chipping into a Kickstarter pot, or having long ago worked on a collaborative venture together. You get the idea: Person A once spoke to Person B, and for that reason Person A’s recommendation of Person B’s new Game C is clearly completely corrupt.
