Picking a favorite is difficult, to say the least, given that we love them ALL,  but given his unique interpretation of the franchise we love so dearly, we can’t WAIT to see what he comes up with next.

“Batman Ninja” takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies – including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family – to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.

Marvel and Epic Games Bring THANOS To Fortnite… GAME ON!

Yep, it’s all going down tomorrow, Tuesday, May 8th!  Entertainment Weekly shared a bit of a conversation between the Russo Brothers and Donald Mustard, the worldwide creative director of Epic Games.

RUSSOS: “Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we’d take breaks to hop on and get in a few games,” Joe exclusively told EW. “And then we started thinking, how cool would it be to have some kind of Avengers–Fortnite mashup? So we stalked Donald.”

DONALD: “Out of the blue, I get this call from Joe. And after a bit of geeking out over each other’s work, we start brainstorming these crazy ideas,” Mustard recalled. “It was really important that whatever we did, it had to be super authentic to both Fortnite and the Avengers: Infinity War, and something that fans of both would be excited about. About an hour later, we had the bones of this awesome idea for a limited time gameplay mode, and almost immediately our team got started.”

The “Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup” mode for Battle Royale will feel just like a standard slugfest — with one major difference: One hundred players will descend upon the map and fight until one player is left standing, as usual, but this time you’ll do so with the Infinity Gauntlet in play.

The artifact containing all six Infinity Stones — the same one Thanos used to cripple Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the big screen — will appear on the map. Whomsoever finds and equips it will transform into Thanos himself, wielding all the power that comes with him. –EW

We are HUGE fans of the game AND the movie so we are PUMPED for this to launch tomorrow.  We shall have our “DO NOT DISTURB” sign outside the office tomorrow as we desperately try to become the mad titan.
