Avengers: Infinity War Is Giving Vision And Scarlet Witch A Love Story

With the superheroes from throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe uniting and Thanos (Josh Brolin) trying to destroy everything in his way, there’s already a lot that will be going on in Avengers: Infinity War. However, it turns out there will also be a love story packed in.

The relationship between Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) introduced in Captain America: Civil War will take a big step forward in Infinity War. “Vision’s been on this quest to understand what being human is and I think Scarlet Witch [has], in a large degree, helped him figure that out and what love is,” Bettany tells io9.

For Olsen, how this relationship was handled made even more of an impact than the death of Wanda’s brother in Avengers: Age of Ultron. “This is definitely the most emotional arc I’ve done in an Avengers film, that’s for sure,” she says.

Given that the Infinity Stones–including the one embedded in Vision’s forehead–are the thing Thanos is after, putting the spotlight on the two of them makes perfect sense. Their journey even takes them to Wakanda after a failed attempt by Thanos to remove the stone.

“These bad guys are trying to get the stone out of my head and so Wanda and I fought them off, and then we’ve ended up here for surgery,” Bettany explains. He also teases something of importance that happens in Shuri’s lab before a Disney publicist reels the actor back in.

Whatever happens on Wakanda, keeping Vision alive in the face of Thanos has far more meaning after he’s found out what love and emotion are. “I just found out what it means to be human and now this Thanos guy,” Bettany says. “I think he’s a real d***.”

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters on April 27.

See Valve’s New Dota Card Game In Action For The First Time Here

Announced last year in a brief teaser, we’re now seeing much more of Valve’s new Dota card game Artifact. GameSpot’s Jimmy Thang recently visited Valve HQ to check out Artifact and talk to developers about the game and what they are hoping to achieve in the digital card game space.

As you’ll see, Artifiact bears a resemblance to Blizzard’s hugely popular Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft and CD Projekt Red’s Gwent, among others. But it also has some MOBA elements. For example, there are three lanes in Artifact, which adds variety to the gameplay.

Artifact uses heroes from the Dota universe. You can see how the game looks in action in GameSpot’s video above. Valve developers can also be heard in the video.

Earlier this month, Valve boss Gabe Newell talked about how the company is going to start making games again, beginning with Artifact. In addition to Artifact, Valve has “several games” on the way, but no, we don’t know if one of them is the much-anticipated Half-Life 3.

Donald Glover Reveals He Wasn’t Too Busy for Canceled Deadpool Series

Donald Glover has responded to rumors he was too busy to work on the defunct Deadpool TV series.

Glover revealed on Twitter that his supposed busy schedule isn’t too blame for the show’s demise, which FX also cited “creative differences” as a reason for the project’s end.

“For the record: i wasnt too busy to work on deadpool,” Glover tweeted, before posting the script pages, which you can read in the gallery below:

Glover, who was set to serve as showrunner and writer on the series along with Stephen Glover (Atlanta), also shared a 15-page script titled “Finale,” seemingly implying this would have been the show’s final script. The 15 pages are notably filled with references to events that have occurred in recent days, though.

Rainbow Six Siege Update to Fix Aiming on Automatic Weapons

Rainbow Six Siege’s weapons will have their recoil patterns corrected in an upcoming update, Ubisoft announced today.

Bullets fired from many weapons, especially fully automatic weapons, currently “diverge from where the reticle is pointing,” a blog post explains. With the new recoil system, which will initially roll out on the next Siege test server session, Ubisoft is targeting “a clean, tight shooting system that does not cheat players out of a great show of skill, or on the contrary, register a headshot when the player is aiming at the torso.”

As-is, bullets don’t always land at the tip of your gun’s reticle. Sometimes they land below or beside it. Under the new recoil system, bullets will always land exactly at the tip of your reticle. So the kick of each gun won’t change, but bullet trajectory is getting tightened up. You can find more details here.
