Doctor Strange Joins Fortnite

Fortnite has rolled out its second season for its third chapter. Chapter three began a couple months ago and had a heavy focus on Spider-Man. The game introduced web slingers as a weapon along with a daily bugle section of the map. The map also features bungie jump webs around the map where players can hop across the scenery by touching the webs; bouncing from rooftop to rooftop.

The new season is bringing in a number of changes. One of the big changes is the removal of the ability to build structures from the mined materials that players pick up. The absence of building means players will have to rely on aiming, strafing, tactical planning and knowledge of the terrain. The new map will also bring in another brand new battle pass that fans can purchase in order to unlock many more costumes, characters as well as items.

The image above was taken from the trailer and as many can see Iron Man is also pictured above along with what looks like Black Widow. The new season is set to be focused around the new Doctor Strange sequel film similar to how the last season was released as partial promotion for the release of the Spider-Man No Way Home movie.

The new season will potentially last just as long as the last which was about 3 months. There’s no telling if it will bring any more surprises or even tie ins with upcoming projects such as Moon Knight. It would also be interesting to see if Batman makes another appearance with a Robert Pattinson version from the film released by Matt Reeves. Make sure to play the game while you can and be sure to let us know your thoughts!

Marvel President Says Doctor Strange Has ‘Become the Anchor’ of the MCU

Benedict Cumberbatch is known for many roles but as far as Marvel goes, he plays the fan favorite Doctor Strange. Strange was introduced in the self titled film and has been a pivotal aspect of the overarching Marvel cinematic storyline. During a speech for Cumberbatch’s receiving a star on Hollywood’s walk of fame, Kevin Feige went on to say, “To us and to millions around the globe, you deserve this honor for being the first, the best, the greatest and the only Doctor Stephen Strange.” The President continued, “Benedict has turned this character into an icon, appearing in a historic three of the top six films of all time.”

“It’s been quite a journey, I remember our very first meeting. … We wanted to pitch him this great character, and before we could he said, ‘So tell me about Doctor Strange,’ because somewhere you knew what this could be…You’ve always seen the tremendous potential in this character and because of that, you’ve become the anchor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the only actor capable of guiding us through the madness of the Multiverse.”

Doctor Strange is the anchor literally and figuratively in this live action world of Marvel. With most of the original members of the Avengers out of the picture, there’s a new open spot for somebody to lead. Doctor Strange’s power dwarfs a lot of his comrades due to the large scale of responsibility placed on his shoulders. He will not only be an anchor as a leader or mentor for the upcoming younger heroes but he will also anchor the multiverse as it unravels following the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home

Fans Try To ‘Activate’ Winter Soldier Sleeper Agent In Real Life

Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, says that fans come up to him and try to activate the Winter Soldier by repeating the code word phrases that awaken the sleeper agent side of the winter soldier personality.

In an interview with BBC 1 Radio, Stan says, “It happens at coffee shops… It happens a lot. And it’s always very funny. It’s an honorable thing I guess. You’re very taken with it all the time. You do have to sometimes look at people in the face and say, ‘No, I will not become the Winter Soldier when you say that. You can keep saying it, and maybe you should say it, maybe that’s a moment we both need to have together, now, here. But nothing crazy will happen’”.

Hydra used this phrase to brainwash him and in Captain America: Civil War, Helmut Zemo, used it to reactivate Bucky Barnes into a murdering frenzy. The phrase is in Russian but the English translation comes to: “Longing, rusted, seventeen, daybreak, furnace, nine, benign, homecoming, one, freight car”. If you see him in person, try saying hello instead of embarrassing yourself.
