Marvel certainly unloaded a lot of information on us in regard to phase four of the MCU, including that the promised Black Widow prequel will be kicking things off.

Despite Avengers: Endgame sort of being the end of the MCU as we know it, we didn’t have long to wait for the very next chapter. That came in the form of Spider-Man: Far From Home, and popped a neat little bow on top of what was the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fear not, though, comic book fans, as phase four is coming.

The trouble is that up until about 24 hours ago, we had little more than conjecture and hearsay to go off of when it came to knowing what to expect. We knew there would be a new Guardians of the Galaxy and probably more Black Panther and Captain Marvel movies, but Marvel was being very coy when it came to giving us anything concrete.

That was until this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel has now revealed a number of details about where the MCU is headed next, and the first step forward will actually be a step backward of sorts. The next installment in the MCU will be Black Widow, a prequel set directly after the events of Captain America: Civil War.

As expected, the movie (which is already in production) will go into further detail about Natasha Romanov’s past. However, it won’t delve as far back as we thought – just as far as when she and Captain America were on the run, only to return and realign with the rest of the Avengers for the events of Infinity War and Endgame. The movie’s villain was also revealed, Taskmaster, someone Spidey fans will likely be familiar with. Sadly, for fans hoping that the movie would revolve around Romanov’s resurrection, it appears that you might be out of luck.

Once the excitement of all of these MCU revelations had subsided, we quickly realized how long a wait we have on our hands until phase four begins. Black Widow is slated to be released on May 1, 2020. After that, the MCU’s planned movies and TV shows will come at us thick and fast. Until then, we’ll be keeping ourselves busy by reliving phases one through three.

Judging by the trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con and by the updated subtitle of “The New World,” it seems like season 3 will completely strip the west out of  Westworld

Showing off sleek new visuals of a futuristic Los Angeles, in addition to a brand new theme park seemingly based on World War II-era Europe, the new Westworld trailer gives fans more insight into the direction of the new season.

Returning cast members include Evan Rachel Would as the homicidal killing machine known as Dolores, Jeffery Wright as Bernard, a reimagining of the park’s long-deceased creator, and more. Thandie Newton and Tessa Thomson both return as Maeve and Charlotte respectively, with the former previously becoming a host in season 2.

While strange settings and new cast members emerge in the latest season, including Aaron Paul’s bank robber character, it’s clear that it’s the same show as before. Despite its lackluster second season, Westworld remains HBO’s most anticipated series. Jonathon Nolan and Lisa Joy have both stated that the newest season will be easier to follow.

“We’re looking at the aftermath of the massacre in the park. After all they went through to get out of the park, Dolores finally got what she wanted, so we wanted to see how she interacts with the world and what her plan is. That’s a part of the story we were excited to tell,” said Joy.

“Aaron’s character will challenge Dolores’ notions about the nature of humanity. He’s the type of person who doesn’t get to go to Westworld,” stated Nolan.

Previous seasons tended to follow an over-arching narrative that mostly followed the individual hosts. Steering from Michael Crichton’s original movie, which released in 1973, HBO’s Westworld allows viewers to humanize the hosts and connect with their favorite characters. This is what has made the series so popular.

RELATED: HBO Unmasks The First Watchmen Series Trailer

With Dolores and Bernard roaming free in the futuristic world, Westworld season 3 is gearing up for one heavily explosive, if not magnifying season. “There’s a good mixture of Dolores and Wyatt” in this season, said Evan Rachel Wood at the Comic-Con.

Though little is known about Paul’s new character, he’s sure to bring something amazing to the show. Kid Cudi will also be appearing, whose character was introduced in the initial teaser

Though fans likely have many questions about the new season, one thing is clear: “These violent delights have violent ends.” With the mobile game in shambles, fans will just have to wait until 2020 in order to find out what will happen.

One of the richest, most memorable villains in gaming history has to be the corporate CEO-turned Dictator of Borderlands 2, Tales From The Borderlands and The Pre-Sequel, Handsome Jack.

This zany Hyperion overlord largely carries the narrative and makes an already excellent game even more memorable with his goofy stories and funny quips; not to mention his psychotic tendencies. There’s just something simultaneously charming and annoying about hearing Jack troll you as you struggle to gun your way through hordes of tough Bandits and robots.

One of the biggest features many are hoping for in the anticipated Borderlands 3 is a return appearance by Jack in some form—perhaps a flashback or return to his AI form? Much like Heath Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight, he’s just that popular and dynamic of a villain. As you’d imagine, he also comes with a pretty crazy and twisted history, along with some strange factoids.

With that said, let’s take a closer look at Handsome Jack and go over 10 facts you didn’t know about this iconic gaming villain.

RELATED: Handsome Jack Officially Dead, But Will Be In Borderlands 3 In Some Way

10 The Ultimate In Espionage

Being the sort of Orwellian-meets-corporate leader that Handsome Jack is, it’s no surprise that he’s a master of Pandora espionage thanks to his exploiting of Eridium and Hyperion tech. For BL2 players that wonder just how it is that Jack seemingly knows every move the Vault Hunters make and is able to communicate with them, the massive space station known as Helios provides the answer.

This H-shaped Death Star-esque lunar base orbits around the planet of Pandora’s moon. Using ECHO tech, Jack is able to keep tabs on all of his corporation of Hyperion’s happenings. He uses it to launch and direct attacks on the ground level by controlling Loaders/Constructors in addition to orbital assaults.

9 A Chronic Liar And Deceiver

It probably goes without saying that this sly and conniving villain has said his share of lies, but few are aware just how much he’s built his corporate and military empire on all these lies. Jack manages to rise to the top of the corporate ladder by concealing himself behind a mask and underhandedly killing the previous CEO of Hyperion to take control for himself.

If this weren’t enough, he uses his own daughter as a means to extract her Siren powers to control the ECHO tech and as a sort of human Eridium-powered battery to charge the Vault Key. While he claimed Angel’s power “had to be restrained because of what she did to her mother,” those who follow the narrative and journal entries find that these reasonings are proven false.

8 Has Heterochromia

As if Handsome Jack’s appearance wasn’t already bizarre enough, with his Texas Chainsaw-esque mask sewed onto his face and slick corporate-meets-renegade attire, he also has multi-colored eyes. He can be seen without his mask with this condition, known as Heterochromia. Though he apparently saw fit to portray this multi-colored look with the eyes of his mask as well.

It’s certainly a unique and clever attribute for the designers to implement. It not only further makes Jack stand out as a strange villain, but it represents his dual nature of the charismatic charming jokester, coupled with his sinister and psychotically violent nature underneath.

7 His Daughter Is One Of the Six Sirens

There is a reason Jack was able to obtain the power he has beyond his underhanded ways and his frequent strangulation of those that get in his way. He harnesses the power of his daughter, Angel, against her will. Unfortunately for Angel, she happens to be one of only 6 sirens on Pandora, which her crazy father is sure to exploit to open a Vault to unleash The Warrior.

These Sirens hold a tremendous power on Pandora, which is harnessed by Eridium Ore. They are distinguishable by the large tattoos that run down much of their bodies. Angel’s powers are particularly useful to Jack and his business because she has the ability to hack gadgets and look back or forward in time.

6 Has a Japanese Counterpart

While Handsome Jack is highly regarded by many as one of the best and most memorable villains in gaming thanks to his unique nature, he does have a sort of spiritual twin from the Japanese fighting game series, Blazblue.

This villain, Yuuki Terumi, shares many of Jack’s off-the-wall traits, including his egotistical, arrogant demeanor, trash-talking tendencies, and his knack for trolling his enemies. While it is unknown whether Handsome Jack was inspired in any way by him, the two definitely share many of the same sadistic characteristics.  

5 His Peculiar And Deadly Wardrobe

Much like his personality, Handsome Jack sports a very distinct wardrobe that leaves quite the impression. His favorite color appears to be yellow, as the attire largely hidden beneath his suit jacket is a yellow Hyperion shirt. His jeans and shoes also sport yellow stripes running down them.

His outfit doesn’t just look harsh though; he also is equipped with some various weaponry. This includes an Old West-style gun holster in addition to two small laser guns attached to his wrists. One would suspect this is meant as a backup option in case he can’t overpower his foes via his usual strangulations.

4 The Strange Meanings Behind His Name

As it turns out, Jack’s lies extend to his very name; he is neither “handsome” with his creepy stitched-on mask, nor is his real name “Jack.” Those who have played Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel may have picked up the fact that Jack’s real name is actually John.

So why call him “Jack” at all? Well, apparently writer Anthony Burch originally intended the name to act as a placeholder and a reference to Doctor Who‘s Captain Jack Harkness, but the name proved popular, so they rolled with it. Also, given the fact that “John” means “God is gracious” while his alias “Jack” similarly means “The grace/mercy of the lord,” it certainly fits together…

3 The Reason Behind His Mask

Jack’s rather stock looking human face mask seems a bit redundant and pointless, and yet it’s become a defining feature of this slick and cheeky corporate villain. But what exactly is its purpose? Is his narcism such that he just wanted to cover his appearance with that of a more attractive individual? Or is it just a result of his maniacal ways, and he’s perhaps decided to sport the face of one of those bandits he despises so much?

As it turns out, the mask is meant to cover up a scar he had received from the Siren Lilith in events prior to Borderlands 2 as a result of her destroying an artifact Jack retrieves inside the Elpis vault.

2 He Possesses A “Cheeky” Diamond Pony

Many Borderlands 2 players recall that early on in the game when trekking across the Southern Shelf, during one of Jack’s bits of trolling, he mentions his acquisition of a horse. Jack, being Jack, names the horse “Butt Stallion,” and it’s apparently made entirely of diamond.

Given Handsome Jack’s tendency to lie and flaunt his riches, we’re led to believe that Butt Stallion is either a diamond statue or just a regular horse. However, we later find this unfortunately named animal ourselves and discover that this horse is in fact made of diamond. On top of this, the horse can be farmed for rare weapons by feeding it Eridium… Thanks, Jack!

1 His Character Was Inspired By Nathan Fillion

While the Blazblue connection seems apparent for those who know both characters, what BL2 fans may find surprising is the origin for much of Handsome Jack’s inspiration. Supposedly, the writers at Gearbox had partially modeled Jack’s witty and sly characteristics off Firefly lead Nathon Fillion—specifically his demeanor and tendency to tell wacky stories during his interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

Don’t get those pitchforks ready just yet, though, Fillion fans. It’s clear that the developers didn’t view the actor as a mad killer or anything of that nature. Rather, it’s Jack’s more charming, benign characteristics which are somewhat lifted from Fillion.

While it seems like an odd connection, BL2 vets and Jack fans can likely pick up at least hints of similar traits when watching the Kimmel interview. You’ve got the dry style of humor, slightly sarcastic tone, and charming “matter of fact” nature tinged with a bit of arrogance.

As was speculated for weeks, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed a number of casting details about the upcoming Shang-Chi­ film, including the main villain with the Mandarin making his second appearance in the MCU, but this time not by a drugged-out fake portrayed by Sir Ben Kingsley. Tony Leung will be taking on the role as the real Mandarin.

Rumors persisted that the Mandarin would be the main antagonist of the film, but this was also doubted by many because of the use of the character’s name in Ironman 3, even though it was part of a larger deception in the later part of the story. The Ten Rings, the organization led by the Mandarin bent on terrorizing and destroying world peace, has until now, been a thorn at the side of Tony Stark’s storylines, and by extension, Jim Rhodes. To be the antagonist against protagonist Shang-Chi will require a bit of development to be sure.

For the unfamiliar, the Mandarin as based in Marvel comics is described as being born in China, well educated, and immensely powerful thanks to ten rings of power that he created using the alien technology of a crashed spaceship. Each ring is unique in the power it offers the wearer while worn on a specific finger.

It will be interesting to see how the character is connected to hero Shang-Chi, and which story is adapted from the comics, if any. One strong possibility lies in another Marvel villain not yet introduced into the MCU: Fin Fang Foom, the alien who resembles a dragon, who the Mandarin has manipulated before to attack parts of China in order to coerce its government to do as he pleases.

RELATED: SDCC 2019: All The Details About Marvel’s Disney+ Shows

Such a storyline would add some epic monsters into the MCU, something that has been lacking to this point. Although the depiction of the character changes between comic appearances, he is often portrayed as larger than most buildings in a large city. If the Ten Rings terrorist organization needed a way to disrupt world peace, awakening and unleashing Fin Fang Foom would certainly be a way to go big and give Shang-Chi more than enough of a challenge to deal with in his debut film.

For now, this is all speculation, but strong contenders for possible stories based on what exists in the Marvel comics. The important point, one that Marvel is surely aware of, is to avoid making an antagonist who has obscure power in ways that are not quantifiable. This is to say that with Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet, we spent years as an audience learning what each infinity stone was capable of, and it was why the character was so easily able to overwhelm the strongest heroes in the MCU as he gathered one after another.

Antagonists like Apocalypse from X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016 suffer from the opposite problem. There, the villain had a broad range of powers that were never explained and seemed to vary wildly in power throughout the film. The same pitfall could befall the Mandarin with his ten rings, so hopefully, this is somehow fleshed out in a way that makes the character feel meaningful.

As for Shang-Chi, we know now that Simu Liu has been cast as the protagonist, most recently known for his role in the Canadian television sitcom Kim’s Convenience. The film currently has a release date of February 12, 2021.

Destiny 2 is all about unlocking rare weapons and armor pieces. The rarest type in this game is Exotic. There are a ton of exotic weapons and armor in the game right now. Some of them are very good in PvE – others, not so much. Today, we’ll be taking a look at some of the best hand cannons you can use inside the Crucible.

Best Hand Cannons

There are many primary weapons that you might’ve not used in Destiny 2. PvP meta changes on mostly every Sandbox update Bungie releases. Below, you can find the best hand cannons inside the Crucible that suit your play-style.

Hand Cannons require precision accuracy. So, this weapon type is not for everyone to use and is quite hard if you have a crappy in-game accuracy (like me).

Ace of Spades

Destiny 2 Best Hand Cannons

First on the list is Ace of Spades. This weapon is added with Forsaken in Year 2. Ace of Spades has been one of the best weapons in Destiny 1 and now in Destiny 2 too. This exotic is a 140 RPM hand cannon. The main perk is called Momento Mori “Reloading after a kill loads magazine with a few extra-damage bullets. Grants radar while aiming down sights.” This perk makes this weapon a lot deadlier in PvP.

The Last Word

Destiny 2 Best Hand Cannons

When we’re talking about Hand Cannons, it comes to no surprise that TLW is on the list. This exotic hand cannon is at its best when firing from the hip. TLW’s main perk is Fan FireThis weapon can be fired quickly and continuously. Faster reload and increased accuracy on successive hip-fire damage.”

Luna’s Howl/Not Forgotten

Destiny 2 Best Hand Cannons

These weapons were THE best inside the Crucible until Season of Opulence when Bungie decided to nerf them. But even after making them 150 RPM hand cannons, they still 3 tap enemies in PvP which is way better than some other hand cannons. The main perk on these weapons is Magnificent Howl “Rapidly landing two precision shots increases the next shot’s damage and range for a short duration.”

Duke Mk.44

Destiny 2 Best Hand Cannons

Yes, you might’ve been thinking, why is this weapon on the list? Well, this weapon can actually be a really good one if you have good rolls on it. I’m talking rolls like Kill Clip with Outlaw or Rampage with Outlaw. With these kinds of random rolls, this weapon can 2-tap enemies inside the Crucible.

Austringer

Destiny 2 Best Hand Cannons

This weapon is probably the best hand cannon in Season of Opulence. Destiny community is called it Eyasluna II because of its sound and the actual look of the weapon. When acquired with some good rolls, this weapon can shred enemies in PvP.

These are the best hand cannons inside the Crucible as of July 2019. There will be more weapons like Sniper Hand Cannon and Heavy Bow releasing in Shadowkeep this fall.

There are two parts of Destiny – PvP and PvE. PvE aspect of the game includes Raids, Strikes and Story missions while PvP part of the game comes with the Crucible, Competitive mode, Iron Banner and previously Trials of the Nine/Osiris (rip for now). There is a whole player base who only likes to play Destiny’s Crucible for its fun gunplay and powerful weapon builds. Obviously, when it comes to PvP, the one thing that matters the most is how good the Crucible Map is made.

Destiny 1 – Crucible Maps

When Destiny 1 was released back in 2014, it came with 11 Crucible Maps. Some of the fan-favorite maps like Rusted Lands, Twilight Gap, and Shores of Time were all-time favorite maps of the Destiny Community. Bungie has already added some of the maps from Destiny 1 that players requested. Distant Shore (Shores of Time), The Burnout (The Burning Shrine) and Bannerfall.

Destiny 2 Shadowkeep GuardianCon Crucible Map

On June 4, Shadowkeep (Destiny 2’s upcoming expansion) was announced by Bungie with some really exciting features like Armor 2.0, Finishing Moves, and Cross-Save. This expansion will take Guardians of the Last City back to the Moon. Old enemies are also returning as Nightmares (Crota, Skolas, Omnigul, and Aksis). Bungie also said that they are leaning more towards RPG with Destiny franchise after the split from Activision.

As far as the PvP aspect of the game is concerned, Luke Smith clarified that they have no plans on bringing back Trials of the Nine this fall. But it is on Bungie’s to-do lists. Maybe we’ll see Trials sometime in Year 3.

Twilight Gap (Crucible Map) Returning with Shadowkeep

With the announcement Shadowkeep, Bungie teased a fan-favorite map returning – Widow’s Court. Yesterday, Bungie released an Insight video detailing the remastered version of the Moon. They also teased some of the PvP footage in the ViDoc. And it seems we’ve figured out yet another Crucible Map returning – Twilight Gap. Twilight Gap was one of the best maps in Destiny 1. And it looks like now it’s coming to Destiny 2 (finally). Take a look:

Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Crucible Map

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Sept.17, 2019, and later in November on Google’s Stada.

Sam Bridges is featured on the cover.

You can also see the steelbook below:

The design
of the steelbook is almost exactly like the PS4 cover, except for a couple of
key differences. While the character’s pose is the same, he is not wearing a
helmet in the steelbook image, whereas he is in the PS4 box art image. Another
difference is all the dirt on his face in the steelbook image, which is not
present in the image featured on the PS4 box art.

Both of the
images are simple but eye-catching and memorable. Like everything else which we
see and hear about Death Stranding, they serve to make us more excited than
ever about the game.

The same
Twitter user who shared these images also posted some other updates about Death
Stranding during Comic-Con. So it is worth taking some time to check them out
when you get the chance.

Pretty much
everyone is
intrigued by Death Stranding
and excited to learn more about Hideo Kojima’s
upcoming game. As more news comes out about Death Stranding, we’ll be sure to
keep you posted. We’ll also let you know what else we learn about this and
other games during this year’s Comic-Con. Keep checking back with VGR so you don’t
miss a single update on any of the most anticipated upcoming games!

Since the release of Destiny 2, Bungei has brought back a significant amount of old OG Destiny’s exotics to Destiny 2. Weapons like Jade Rabbit, Whisper of the Worm (Black Spindle), Sleeper Simulant, Ace of Spaces, The Last Word and Truth. On top of that, some of the exotic armor pieces are also back from Destiny 1 like Celestial Nighthawk (Hunter’s exotic helmet), Peregrine Greaves (Titan’s exotic leg armor) and Claws of Ahamkara (Warlock’s exotic gauntlets).

Titan Exotic Armor in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 Titan Exotic Armor

There are many requests by the Destiny community about which weapons or armor from Destiny 1 they want to next in Destiny 2. One top of the line and probably the most frequently requested item by Titans is – Twilight Garrison. This exotic was a Chest Piece in Destiny 1 that made Titans an aircraft. It makes you Titan a flying, punching-golden-gun-dodging-super-baiting machine.

Perks

This exotic chest piece does not give you any OP damage buffs, no Overshield or Wallhacks. It gives you the ability to evade while in air. The main perk on this armor was Tactical Air Support in Destiny 1. You can see the montage by Bye Bye below:

Twilight Garrison was mainly used inside PvP in Destiny 1. Because of its dodging ability/perk, this exotic was insanely good for those up-front Nova Bombs, Golden Guns, etc. With combined with a good exotic weapon, this armor piece can cause a whole lot of wreckage in a match.

Let’s hope Bungie add this exotic weapon in the coming Seasons after Shadowkeep. Which D1 exotic Weapons and Armor do you want back in Destiny 2? Let us know in comments below!

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep will release on September 17, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Google Stadia will also be getting access to Destiny 2 on its release later this year in November. Shadowkeep will bring some of the most requested features by the community. Cross Save, Finishing Moves and Returning PvP maps are already confirmed to be coming with Shadowkeep.

Are you
enjoying the Xbox Games with Gold free games for July? With August coming up
fast, it is time to talk about our predictions for free Xbox Games with Gold
August 2019 games.

1. Strike Suit Zero

With
FromSoftware’s third person mech shooter Metal Wolf Chaos XD releasing on
August 6th on PC, Xbox One and PS4, maybe we will get to play
another mech game for free next month. One option would be Strike Suit Zero, a
space flight combat game with mech elements. The Director’s Cut of that game
was free back in 2014, so there is precedent.

Could Strike Suit Zero be among the Xbox Games with Gold August 2019 free games?

2. Ironcast

Another
mech game which could be free next month would be Ironcast. This turn-based strategy
game features roguelike elements, and released on all major platforms starting
in 2015 and finishing in 2017. The game received favorable reviews and praise
for its innovative gameplay. Microsoft has yet to make it free through Xbox
Games with Gold, so now might be the time to do it.

3. Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Also coming
out in August is The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game, which will release
on August 8th on all major platforms. This got us thinking that
another LOTR-themed game could be free during next month.

One idea
would be Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. This innovative open world game came
out in 2014 and was available for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows, Linux
and OSX. Critics were impressed by the design of the environments as well as
the combat featured in the game.

4. Euro Fishing

Slated for release next month is Train Sim World 2020. This game will come out on August 15th on all major platforms. Featuring another sim game by developer Dovetail Games might be a great move for the August Xbox Games with Gold free games. One idea would be 2014’s Euro Fishing. Angling Times called this sim title “the most realistic fishing game ever.” This would surely make it an exciting addition to the list of free games in August through Xbox Games with Gold.

We hope you
enjoyed our list of predictions for the Xbox Games with Gold August 2019 free
games. When the official list of free games for next month is announced, we
will share them with you here at VGR. So check back with us later to find out
what we will be playing for free next month.
