      • Sony is starting to build their own films surrounding the iconic hero, Spider-Man. Nobody knows where they are going with these movies because Tom Holland is with Marvel and none of these movies are supposed to have any version of Spider-Man in them. Then there is the animated movie coming out later this year and Venom with Tom Hardy. Recently Sony has taken off one of their upcoming spinoffs, Silver & Black from the schedule. The films were supposed to be released in February of next year, but have been removed from the calendar. The report came in from Deadline who broke the news about the spinoff. Instead of opening on February 8, the film will go back into development. Instead, Tom Hanks’ upcoming WW2 flick Greyhound will release on that date. Initially, Sony had big plans with Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six, along with Silver & Black which would feature Black Cat and Silver Sable. The news about the upcoming spinoff will increase the confusion that people have about Sony’s plans for their spinoffs in the world of the web swinging hero.

      • On May 31 at a Ghost concert in Milwaukee, an attendee of the show Jeffery Fortune had died at the show. The band’s fans have come together to help raise money for Jeffery’s family on GoFundMe and shattered the goal. The initial goal of the campaign was to raise $1,000. As of writing, $9,726 has been raised by the Ghost fan base. During the band’s set, Jeffery collapsed and was unconscious. Fans were rushed out of the venue while CPR was performed. Jeffery was transported to the hospital where he had passed away at 52 years old. During the emergency, Ghost had stopped the show altogether and did not continue after Jeffery was transported out of respect. My condolences go to his friends and family.

      • The beloved metal band Killswitch Engage have signed onto Metal Blade Records, while their international affairs will be handled by Sony Music Entertainment. This grows and an already strong roster that Metal Blade holds in the metal world with bands such as Whitechapel, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Cannibal Corpse. Metal Blade CEO and founder Brian Slagel made a statement about the band signing on by saying, “I have been a huge fan and friend of Killswitch for a long time, so it is truly an honor to be able to work with them. So happy to welcome them to the Metal Blade family.” Having this well-respected label is not only great for Killswitch but is just as good for the label as well.

      • Earlier this week Kotaku made a report that inside sources of Microsoft have told them that Crackdown 3 will be delayed. A lot of speculation circulated about the story because the game has been pushed back so many times already. As of recently, Microsoft has confirmed this is the case. Microsoft says in their confirmation, “Our fans’ response to the signature antics and explosive gameplay of Crackdown 3 has been incredible. To ensure we deliver the experience they deserve, Crackdown 3 will be launching in Feb 2019. We look forward to sharing more on Crackdown 3 this Sunday during the Xbox E3 2018 briefing.” The news is quite shocking because Microsoft has been quite light on their exclusives for the Xbox One. Now the year is even lighter for Microsoft with one of their most anticipated games being delayed to February of next year. The blow will be significant, so they need to make sure that Crackdown 3 does well. The game was initially supposed to come out back in November 2017, but now the almost two-year delay could hurt them.

 

We managed to get through some highlights of the week today. A lot has happened, so be sure to comment what you think about these stories. How do you feel about Crackdown 3 being delayed again? Are you disappointed or just don’t care about what Sony is doing with their Spider-Man spinoffs? Comment all of your thoughts below.
