Xbox Series X, Marvel's Avengers, and The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword walk into a bar to take a leak. Ubisoft fires their Assassins Creed Valhalla creative director, don't worry the game is basically finished. Rocksteady teases another Batman game reveal. Fingers crossed it's at DC Fandome.

Hans Zimmer creates a new intro for Netflix films. Will Smith and Kevin Hart team up for a Planes Trains and Automobiles remake. Antebellum skips theaters in favor of PVOD.
