Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War Post-Credits Scene -- What Does It Mean?

Avengers: Infinity War is finally here. The arrival of “destiny” as promised by Thanos, after ten long years of waiting and 18 movies, the moment we’ve been waiting for has come. It brought with it a whole bunch of questions, most importantly: what do we do now? With the movie's post-credits scene, that becomes just a tiny bit more clear.

The end of Infinity War is very literally an end--the actual, genuine annihilation of half the universe at the hands of Thanos, armed with a fully...

Borderlands 3: What We Want At E3 2018

A new Borderlands game has been expected for some time now. The series is among 2K's most successful franchises, and Borderlands 3 has been teased time and again. We know 2K has a new (but as-of-yet unannounced) game for one of its big franchises in the works, although it was recently delayed--rather than releasing by the end of March 2018, it's not due until sometime between April 2018 and March 2019. That suddenly makes it less likely that E3 2018 is where we get a look at Borderlands...

Transformers Movie Franchise's Future Is Suddenly Uncertain

The Transformers series might be one of the most successful film franchises of all time, but 2017's Transformers: The Last Knight wasn't nearly as big a hit as the previous movies in the series. The spin-off Bumblebee is due out later this year, but plans to continue the series beyond that remain uncertain. It has now been reported that Paramount has removed the Transformers movie planned for 2019 from its release schedule entirely.
