Marvel Did Something Really Cool With the Avengers: Infinity War Poster

Marvel's teaser poster for Avengers: Infinity War continues a trend established with the first Avengers and carried through to Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The teaser posters for the first three Avenger movies act as a throughline of the MCU, featuring a main design alike in all three posters but with different details to reference their respective team-up films.

The posters all feature the iconic Avengers logo. The logo in the Infinity War poster, though, prominently features a purple hue because of the incoming threat of Thanos, with a mix of reflected colors to seemingly match the various Infinity Stones. Check out an image gallery of the posters below. Age of Ultron's teaser poster matched its titular villain's design, while the original Avengers featured a more subdued version of the logo.

Fantastic Beasts 2 Director Defends Keeping Johnny Depp

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald director David Yates has spoken out about the controversial decision to keep Jonny Depp on for the sequel.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Yates defended the decision to have Depp play Grindelwald in the sequel, which has garnered backlash because Depp’s ex-wife, Amber Heard, previously accused the actor of both physical and emotional abuse. Yates says these accusations don't tally with the kind of person he's seen while working with the actor.

"Honestly, there's an issue at the moment where there's a lot of people being accused of things, they're being accused by multiple victims, and it's compelling and frightening," said Yates. In the case of Depp, however, Yates noted it was only accusations from a single person. "I can only tell you about the man I see every day: He's full of decency and kindness, and that's all I see," the director said.

Epic Sues Minor for Cheating in Fortnite, Mother Responds

After Epic Games sued two Fortnite players for cheating, it has been revealed that one of the accused cheaters is a minor who's 14 years old.

The mother of the teenager sent the court a letter, which you can read on Kotaku, that pushes back against Epic's case against her child. She notes that, for minors, Fortnite's terms require parental consent, which she never provided.

Instead of going after the websites providing the software to cheat, the mother claims that by targeting individual players, the publisher is "using a 14 year-old child as a scapegoat." She also claims her son didn't help create the software for cheating, as Epic alleges, but instead just downloaded it as a user.
