Here’s Our First Look at THE MAGICIANS #3

The third issue of The Magicians from creator Lev Grossman, writer Lilah Sturges, artist Pius Bak, and BOOM! Studios will be released in roughly one month. That means that it’s time for our first look at the issue. In addition to the aforementioned team members, the main cover is done by Qistina Khalidah and Alexa Sharpe has created the variant cover.

After the shocking conclusion of the last issue, the five students chosen to learn battle magic are forced to confront the terrible consequences of what they’ve done, and what it could mean for the future of Brakebills. As tensions mount, the traditional Brakebills students and the newly admitted hedges begin to turn on one another!

You’ll be able to read The Magicians #3 starting on January 8, 2020. Print copies will be sold exclusively at local comic book stores.

Owlcat Games is Developing PATHFINDER: WRATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS

Last week, Paizo made a big announcement for Pathfinder computer RPG (CRPG) fans. While fans can currently play Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Paizo announced that Owlcat Games is working on the next adventure: Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. This will not be a sequel to Kingmaker but is said to expand upon some of the core elements. Some of the new things fans can look forward to include the mythic progression system, a new part of the Age of Lost Omens setting to explore, more classes such as the witch and oracle, and more character customization options.

Excited for the announcement, Oleg Shpilchevskiy of Owlcat Games released this statement:

We are tremendously excited to announce Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous today. With our new game, we are taking everything that made Kingmaker enjoyable and building on top of it. We laid a solid foundation and are going to push the boundaries of the CRPG genre with our next title. We especially want to thank the Kingmaker community for their support because we would not be making this game if it weren’t for them. When Wrath of the Righteous is ready, we cannot wait to see them answer the call again.

More details for Wrath of the Righteous are said to be coming in the future, so I guess we’ll just have to wait.

GLOOMHAVEN Is Getting a Sequel Called FROSTHAVEN

Gloomhaven is a very popular tabletop game that has taken the world by storm. Now, it looks like fans are in for a treat as a sequel has been revealed at PAXU. The sequel is Frosthaven, and while we don’t know much, we do know that it will feature two new classes including the Human Necromancer which was originally part of the upcoming Gloomhaven expansion, Jaws of the Lion. The other new class we’ve learned will be in the game is the Quartyl Blink Blade.

In addition, Frosthaven will raise funds via Kickstarter this March. Hopefully, we’ll learn a bit more now that PAXU is over.

First Look Photo from THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES 2 Stars Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn

We’ve got a first look photo for you to check out from Netflix’s upcoming sequel The Christmas Chronicles 2. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus (what is that woman’s first name?) are played by real-life husband and wife actors, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. The first film told the story of a brother and sister who plan to catch Santa Claus on camera, which leads them to an unexpected journey of a lifetime.

The upcoming sequel is being directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone) and will welcome the return of Darby Camp as Kate, Kimberly Williams-Paisley as Claire, and Judah Lewis as Teddy. New additions to the cast include Julian Dennison as Belsnickel and Jahzir Bruno as Jack. Check out the photo below, and see The Christmas Chronicles 2 when it hits Netflix in the holiday season 2020.

MINDHUNTER Star Jonathan Groff Joins THE MATRIX 4

Jonathan Groff, the actor who plays Agent Holden Ford on Netflix’s fantastic series Mindhunter hs joined the cast of director Lana Wachowski‘s The Matrix 4.

There’s no information on who Groff will be playing in the film, but Collider speculates that “it wouldn’t be a stretch to see him as a suit-clad agent given his character on Mindhunter.” Whoever he ends up playing, I’m sure he’ll be great in the role. After all, he is a solid actor.

Groff joins the previously cast Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity, while Aquaman actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is taking on a lead role that could very well be a young Morpheus. Jada Pinkett Smith is also set to come back in the role of Niobe, while Jessica Henwick and Neil Patrick Harris have also been cast. Harris might end up playing the villain in the story.

Wachowski will co-write the screenplay with Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. I’ve got high hopes for this new Matrix movie and I hope the creative team ends up delivering something epic that matches the awesomeness of the first movie. That’s going to be a hard feat, though. The first Matrix movie was mind-blowing.

What do you think about Groff being cast in the film?
