What of the warts? Are they extensive?!
- Though we know that Ozzy Osbourne relapsed into drugs and alcohol earlier this year, he's apparently very good at hiding his backslides -- even bandmates Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath had no idea. In an interview with Classic Rock Magazine, both admitted that Ozzy was talkative, but they thought he was just excited about recording their new album 13, and they didn't notice any other signs of addiction. Fortunately, Ozzy's clean and sober once again now.
- Could we see War Machine -- sorry, "Iron Patriot" -- in Avengers: Age of Ultron? While discussing his Golden Globe nomination for House of Lies, Don Cheadle let slip that he has some filming to do for the Marvel sequel, suggesting that Colonel Rhodes may join the fight this time...perhaps in lieu of Iron Man, after the events of the third Tony Stark solo adventure.
- Also, Sony is moving ahead with plans to expand the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, as they're working with director Marc Webb and a new writing staff for a couple of spin-offs -- namely, Venom and the Sinister Six. Of course, Venom's been a hero enough times to work as a solo film, but the Sinister Six is a guaranteed villain piece, so I'm very curious to see how that's supposed to play out...
- WB Games has relased an update to the multiplayer aspect of Batman: Arkham Origins. The "Hunter/Hunted" challenge pits three Joker goons and three Bane goons against the Caped Crusader...all with only one life to live. Even better, it's a free update, so anyone with the game will be able to play it without paying. Sweet!
- Also, if you're waiting for Super Smash Bros. before getting a Wii U, like me, be prepared to wait. Series creator Masahiro Sakurai says the game has been falsely reported as releasing in Spring 2014; it'll be out in 2014, yes, but not necessarily in the first quarter. Bummer. Same goes for the 3DS version, the series' first handheld game.
'Til Wednesday, warriors...ROCK!
