How to Overcome Loss With Only Your Fists, a Butler, and Billions of Dollars: The Bruce Wayne Story


Meet Bruce Wayne: industrialist, billionaire owner of Wayne Enterprises, philanthropist, Gotham’s favorite son, playboy, orphan. His success is a heartwarming example of American enterprise and ingenuity. It’s the stuff of folklore, really—a life we can all look to and feel inspired.

This is what I imagine most people picture when they think of Bruce Wayne. I mean, just look at how handsome and charming he is. He’s someone who overcomes a traumatic childhood and forgoes his own social advantages to fix the problems he sees in his own city. Surely, this character should be inspiring, right?

Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them – Poll


Basically, every single Harry Potter fan has been hyperventilating, squealing with excitement, and worshiping our Goddess 'Mrs. JK Rowling' due to the announcement of her book "Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them" hitting the big screens! (... Or at least I have?)
Words from our Goddess, J.K Rowling: “Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” said Rowling. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.” “It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of ‘Fantastic Beasts,’ realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood. As I considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros. I particularly want to thank Kevin Tsujihara of Warner Bros. for his support in this project, which would not have happened without him. I always said that I would only revisit the wizarding world if I had an idea that I was really excited about and this is it.”
How do you feel about the news? I can't wait to see the production begin! :)

Must Read – Borderlands Origins


 

I still remember the first time I saw the announcement that there will be a 4 issue Borderlands comic book series on the Borderlands Official FaceBook page back in October. I knew I had to get my hands on all 4 issues!

Hands down, the Borderland series is definitely one of my favorite Xbox 360 games. The gameplay is extremely entertaining and I can seriously play the game for endless hours... No really, I have... I kept doing the whole "Ok, just one more mission!... Oh this mission is short, I'll just do this quickly... Ah, just one more!" Seriously. One of my favorite games!
