Will another standalone Hulk movie ever happen? The chances are slim to none, according to actor Mark Ruffalo. Speaking to Variety, Ruffalo said it comes down to the fact that Universal owns the rights to the character and they won't allow it to happen.
“I want to just make one thing perfectly clear today: A standalone Hulk movie will never happen,” the actor said. “Universal has the rights [for standalone Hulk movies], and for some reason, they don't know how to play well with Marvel. And, they don't want to make money.”
Don Cheadle was standing next to Ruffalo for the interview and he jokingly jabbed at Ruffalo for being too old to play Hulk anyway.
Later in the interview, Ruffalo confirmed that discussions did happen about a new standalone Hulk movie, but they didn't amount to anything. “We talked about it, but I don't see it in the cards.”
Universal has held the Hulk standalone movie rights dating back to the 2003 movie Hulk, which starred Eric Bana. Anothe..

The Destiny 2 beta client received a big new update today. The client itself was up for pre-load last week, and the file size was less than 400 MB. Today's update, meanwhile, clocks in at 12.6 GB on PlayStation 4, suggesting it contains all of the beta's content.
You need to install the update if you want to play the Destiny 2 beta. As announced previously, the beta begins on July 18 at 10 AM PT on PS4 for pre-order customers. Xbox One pre-order members get in a day later, while everyone on console can play starting July 21. A beta for the PC version of Destiny 2 is also coming, but not until August.

Like the past entries in the Call of Duty series, this year's Call of Duty: WWII's will have a Zombies mode that features famous people playing the leads. We already know that David Tennant (Doctor Who, Harry Potter) and Elodie Yung (Daredevil) will feature, and now it's been confirmed that Vikings actress Katheryn Winnick will also be in the game.
Winnick will play a character named Marie Fischer (via DualShockers). Activision described Fischer as being “intrepid,” but no further details are available. Presumably everything will be revealed on July 20, which is when Activision's Call of Duty: WWII Zombies panel takes place at San Diego Comic-Con.

The late actor Adam West may be best known for his role as Batman in the '60s series, but another one of his major parts was Mayor Adam West on Fox's Family Guy. Following West's passing in June, Fox has now released a new video that highlights many of Mayor West's best and silliest moments from throughout the show's history.
West appeared in more than 100 episodes of Family Guy, with his first appearance coming in the Season 2 episode “Fifteen Minutes of Shame.” This best-of video goes on for almost nine minutes, and it contains some of West's best, silliest moments where the Mayor gets into all manner of hijinks. Mayor West was one of the wackiest characters on the show and it was always a treat to see what he would do next.
“We'll miss you dearly. Quahog couldn't have had a better mayor. We couldn't have had a better friend,” reads a line from the end of the video (via Entertainment Weekly).
West recorded lines for five more Family Guy ..
