Telltale Games has created some amazing episodic adventures for some huge franchises. They've done The Walking Dead, they've tackled the comic book Fables and they've currently got a Game of Thrones series going, just to name a few. Well, this week they announced a partnership with Marvel to develop video games based on their comic book characters.
Don't go expecting the Avengers to show up in Telltale games any time soon, though. Details were extremely limited, but the first game from this partnership won't arrive until 2017. But it's possible that Marvel wants Telltale to handle some of its more minor heroes similar to the way Netflix has handled Daredevil.
Daredevil season two
Speaking of Daredevil, the first season of that Netflix Original show premiered earlier this month, but it's been enough of a success that Marvel and Netflix have already announced it will be back for a second season next year.
This doesn't seem to affect Netflix's plans for shows based on other Marvel characters like Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, all of which will come together in an Avengers-style team-up miniseries called The Defenders.
Warcraft movie delayed
In other news of things you can look forward to in 2016, the Warcraft movie has been delayed by three months and will now hit theaters on June 10. The film, which is directed by Duncan Jones, finished filming way back in March of 2014, but like James Cameron's blockbuster hit Avatar, the Warcraft movie will be heavy on CG. Two years of post-production work sounds like a lot, but if the end result is a good movie, the wait will be worth it.
