Tom Holland drops a hint that he will indeed be playing the lead in the upcoming Uncharted film.
On his Instagram account, Holland posted a short video of the video game’s title screen and theme music, with the words “FOR RESEARCH PURPOSES” written across the screen.
The young actor had already been attached to play protagonist Nathan Drake in Uncharted, which will be a prequel to the video game series. However, nothing has been confirmed.
Holland is most well-known for playing the part of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He stole the show (and Cap’s shield) in his brief Captain America: Civil War appearances before starring in Spider-Man: Homecoming this year.
Uncharted is a third-person shooter created by Naughty Dog and published by Sony. It tells the story of Drake as he goes around the world with a group of compatriots, trying to uncover historical mysteries. They have been hailed as some of the greatest video games of all time (particularly Uncharted 2: Among Thieves), and are often compared to big Hollywood properties like Indiana Jones. Theoretically, an Uncharted film that manages to avert the usual “video game movie curse” could become a huge franchise.
Attempts to adapt these games have been going on since 2009, but unfortunately for fans, so far they keep stalling as different writers, producers and actors express interest in the film before leaving. Things may finally be moving forward now that Shawn Levy, currently working as a producer of Stranger Things, has been announced to direct the project.
At previous points frontrunners to play Drake have included Holland’s MCU colleague Chris Pratt (Star-Lord from Guardian of the Galaxy, in case you have a hard time keeping the Chrises straight) and Nathan Fillion, who even began a Twitter campaign to help him land the part.
The Justice League artbook is out, and it shows some interesting designs were originally planned for that film’s version of the Greek gods Zeus and Ares.
While the actual movie presented the pair about how you would expect—Zeus was a lightning throwing guy in a toga, Ares had the more intimidating armor that he wore in Wonder Woman—the artbook depicts them in decidedly more primitive clothing, wearing loincloths and capes made out of animal skins and leather, respectively. Zeus is also glowing, with golden segments on, or perhaps part of, his arms and forehead, while Ares’ hands glow red as though covered in blood.
It is notable that the Amazons, who worship the Greek gods, were depicted with similarly primitive outfits during the film’s flashback, which showed both groups teaming up with the Atlanteans and an ancient Green Lantern warrior to combat the villain Steppenwolf and his invading army of Parademons.
The aesthetic here is interesting when one considers the film’s director, Zack Snyder. While he is controversial for many reasons—the grimmer, more violent tone that he has chosen to use for these films, the gloomy aesthetic, his at times over-complicated plotting—no one can deny that he has an eye for striking images. Justice League is full of visually impressive scenes, and no doubt the shot of Zeus à la Conan the Barbarian would have made an impression.
It is not clear why these designs were not used in the final product. Were the artbook’s renditions of the characters simply deemed too strange, prompting a return to their more traditional looks? Did the battle scene go through reshoots like much of the movie? It is hard to say.
According to Wonder Woman, the Greek gods are all dead now, though we may find out more about them in Shazam, since Zeus is traditionally one of the hero’s magical patrons.
The Annals of Internal Medicine recently published the findings two new studies that found that habitual drinking of coffee could actually be linked to a lowered risk of death resulting from a myriad of diseases such as strokes and heart diseases. For several years now, a number of scientists have been researching on what exactly are the health benefits and shortcomings (if any) of drinking coffee for a prolonged period of time and therefore this is not the first time coffee drinkers are reading such headlines.

More than 185,000 people from the Americas drawn from a cross-section of society including the Japanese Americans, Latinos, African Americans and even Whites alike were examined by one of the studies. The study found these individuals, whether they indulge themselves with decaffeinated of caffeinated coffee, they were at a lesser risk of dying from lifestyle diseases like cancer, diabetes, stroke, heart disease or even kidney disease.
The researchers also found out that, the subjects who took at least two to three cups of coffee each day decreased their risk of death by up to 18% when compared to fellow folks who did not take coffee for the 16 years that the study took place.
The other study was carried out in Europe where over 520,000 individuals were drawn from across 10 different countries and their findings were strikingly similar. The study also came to the conclusion that the people who drank a number of cups of coffee each day had a reduced chance of death when put head to head with the people who did not drink coffee.

Marv Wolfman, co-creator of the DC Comics character Deathstroke, has praised his usage in the recent DC Extended Universe film Justice League.
Posting a picture of him on his Facebook page, Wolfman wrote “Photo courtesy of Joe Manganiello who looks like he stepped right out of the pages of New Teen Titans. Does he look perfect or what? Cannot wait to see where he appears next.”
He also advises people to “stay to the very, very end,” alluding to the fact that Manganiello’s Deathstroke only appears in the film’s second and final post-credits scene.
Deathstroke the Terminator, real name Slade Wilson, is an assassin who originally focused on fighting the Teen Titans, though he has since expanded into a more general DC Comics antagonist and anti-hero. A scientific experiment gave him enhanced physical abilities, and he has his own peculiar moral code that makes him a more interesting villain than just a plain, thoughtless killer.
In the Justice League post-credits scene, Deathstroke meets with Lex Luthor (played by Jesse Eisenberg), who is revealed to have escaped prison and left a body double in his place. The two discuss the recent formation of the Justice League, and Luthor suggests that they begin “a league of our own,” implying some sort of villain team-up in a sequel film.
In the DCEU, Deathstroke is apparently an antagonist of Ben Affleck’s Batman; he was originally slated to appear in The Batman solo film, though at this point his involvement is up in the air.
Justice League was the first time that fans could see Deathstroke in a live-action movie, but he is no stranger to adaptations: he was one of the chief antagonists of the Teen Titans cartoon, had a smaller part in Young Justice, appeared in several of the DC Universe Animated Original Movies and was a recurring antagonist on the Arrow TV show.
Rob Reina has decided that he will not be adopting stray animals to be his pets as he has previously been known to do. Instead, he has concluded that it is only fair and reasonable to donate to animal causes. Having said this, Rob will donate more than one million dollars to go to animal causes. Currently, it is overwhelming for Reina to keep up with his pets as he has adopted eleven dogs and five cats. In fact, he has employed housekeepers to take care of these pets and tidy up the inevitable mess they make such as the pet hair.
Among the pets are three basset hounds-Presley, Blue Bell, and Stormy. He also has Bindi which lost a leg from an alligator attack before being rescued by Reina. Then there is a Labrador mix, Sport, who, as Reina describes, resembles a giraffe with a small head and long legs and neck. The stray and rescued cats adopted by Reina are Scrappy, Chance, Madison, Lucky, and Mystery. All these animals share the house with Reina who treats them as his children. Reina regards himself as an animal lover and says that he is very compassionate about helping them. He also acknowledges having an affinity for pets.
In the past, Reina was a Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy. He started a small technology company known as Talk Fusion. Having been very successful in his career, Reina can easily afford to donate to animal causes in a big way (http://www.forbes.com/sites/quickerbettertech/2010/11/10/talk-really-can-be-cheap/#2924b32c4076). At the beginning of this year, he donated an amount worth $250,000 to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. Currently, he is finishing up a donation worth $750,000. This money is meant for building vet clinics that will offer low-cost services to people who are unable to afford checkups, shots, diagnostic services, spay and neuter services for their pets.
According to the chief executive of the Bluepearl Veterinary Partners vet clinic group, Reina has more than one time personally catered for the bills of families who cannot afford lifesaving care for their pets. Reina confesses that he gets a hard time trying to balance between work time and his personal time. He says that he loves what he does and he finds himself investing most of his time helping his business grow. However, Reina has realized that he has to set aside time for everything-it is just what you have to do.
Michel Terpins along with Rodrigo Terpins left Goiânia as they wanted to participate in the Sertões Rally that had its 22nd edition.
This Sertões Rally had everything. It started in July. The competitors moved from Goiânia. They had nearly 155 km of timed sections. This required a lot of skill and precision. This pair of Rodrigo Terpins along with Michel Terpins completed this test in just more than 2 hours. They were able to finish the day by coming in 7th place. They were placed in the category Prototypes T1.
But they were not able to finish the Special.
Michel Terpins described the various types of terrain they had to encounter on the first day. This was where they faced a lot of dirt. He said that it was a demanding race. Still, they did not find any scares. In fact, all was normal.
Michel Terpins further stated that the car was behaving properly. They were able to overtake also. Still, he was not keen to force the suspension too much. He wanted to be more cautious. This is because he wanted to adapt himself to the equipment. Rodrigo Terpins was the driver of the # 326 car.
There can be a plausible justification for the failure of Michel Terpins and his partner. The car in which they were, had been at the top at the time KM 62. Still, they were not injured. But the car could not continue in the race.
The Bull Sertões Rally is the largest off-road event in the country. It will be held from 19/8 to 26/8. It will cover more than 3,300 km of the country. The three states that will be a part of it include Goiás, Mato Grosso along with Mato Grosso do Sul. Pilot Michel Terpins along with navigator Maykel Justo of the Bull Sertões Rally Team will be a part of it. On this Sunday, The Support Park was set up at the Autodromo Internacional de Goiânia. They would be arriving on 26/8 in Bonito (MS). There would be different off-road trajectories here. Michel Terpins along with Justo form the second prototype. This would be in the T1 prototype category.
