Rocksteady Studios, makers of the Batman: Arkham trilogy, has confirmed it isn’t making a Superman game, and the studio won’t be making an announcement about its upcoming project at The Game Awards next week.

A new Walking Dead novel is expanding the series’ universe into China.
Announced by Skybound Books, The Walking Dead: Typhoon, written by Wesley Chu (The Lives of Tao, Time Salvager), follows a group of survivors that work together to face a “wave of walkers in the most populous country in the world.” Skybound says Chu will bring a fresh perspective on societal decay and decomposing flesh established in Robert Kirkman’s comic series.
“Our goal at Skybound Books has been to give novelists the same creative platform and freedom to tell engaging genre stories that we already have in place across comics, film, television, and games,” said Skybound SVP Sean Mackiewicz. “Plus, after 15 years, we’re about to answer one of the biggest questions The Walking Dead fans have had since the beginning: what’s happening to the rest of the world? That we can expand The Walking Dead universe with talented authors like Wesley Chu will allow walkers to truly become an even greater global phenomenon than ever before!”

The news rolled in this past Thursday night: Netflix has canceled Daredevil.
Iron Fist was the first Marvel series that Netflix axed, and the news came not long before Daredevil: Season 3 premiered in October. Luke Cage was canceled a week later, the same day as Daredevil's premiere. Fans, however, were optimistic about Daredevil's future after showrunner Eric Oleson tweeted on November 16 that he had pitched Netflix on a potential Season 4 of the show.
Printers connected to the Internet across the world have been hacked to print a message urging people to subscribe to PewDiePie’s YouTube channel.
Reported by The Verge, this attack appears to be the work of @HackerGiraffe (a Twitter account that was just opened yesterday) who claims the relatively harmless act was carried out in order to raise awareness about a major hole in printer security.
The message sent to an alleged 50,000 printers calls for recipients to unsubscribe from T-Series, an Indian YouTube channel that is close to becoming the most subscribed channel on the platform, and subscribe to the current frontrunner PewDiePie’s channel instead. It also suggests reciepents subscribe to two other channels, "delete TikTok,” smile, and to fix the exposed printer.
A DSLR camera in the right hands can allow for some incredible photos, but there’s no denying a lot of people are getting tired of lugging around a bulky camera and lens, whether on holiday or just around town. Dissatisfaction with this size of DSLRs has led to the development of mirrorless cameras, which offer all the benefits of a traditional DSLR in a much smaller package. Because they ditch the mirror inside the the chassis that's used to reflect what's being seen up into an optical viewfinder, they’re significantly lighter and smaller. Recent advancements have brought mirrorless models up to par with their bulkier counterparts in terms of image quality, too, so these days there's not many trade offs for pixel peepers.
GameStop has released its third quarter fiscal report, which ended on Nov. 3, showing an overall net income loss of $488.6 million.

GameStop previously said they would, “pay off debts, fund share repurchases, reinvest in core video game and collectibles businesses to drive growth, or some combination of these options," with the funds from Spring Mobile.
Family Guy is known for its iconic cutaway gags, but after sixteen seasons of insanity, you've got to wonder just how many jokes ended up on the cutting room floor, either for timing, common decency, or because the episode already had too many detours.
Sure, they're probably not all hilarious, but judging by our exclusive deleted scene from the Season 16 DVD release (available beginning Dec. 4), we'd bet we've missed out on a few gems over the years. Check out the brief (but painfully relatable) clip above for a chuckle you didn't see on TV.
For more on Family Guy, check out what the showrunners had to say about Season 17 and how they plan to tackle the show's 20th anniversary.
Following the announcement that Marvel's Daredevil has been abruptly canceled after three seasons and no series finale, Marvel has issued a statement reassuring fans that the character will live on in other media.
"Marvel is extremely grateful to the huge audience that loved Marvel's Daredevil," reads a post on Marvel's website. "From the moment of young Matt’s first act of heroism to the birth of Page, Murdock, & Nelson, it has been
