Sylvester Stallone is returning for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Sylvester Stallone has confirmed that he is returning to the MCU for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

In a post on Instagram, Stallone shared two behind-the-scenes process videos. They show him using a machine that captures his facial expressions so the filmmakers can duplicate them if the actor isn’t around.

His character, Stakar Ogord, also known as Starhawk in the comics, was introduced in an early scene in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as a high-ranking Ravager.

Twitch is now available on Switch

Twitch has officially released an app for Nintendo Switch, meaning you can now watch the livestreaming service on the console. The free app offers the same core functionality as Twitch on other consoles, including on-demand videos.

Unfortunately, while you can watch Twitch on the console, you can’t broadcast from it. You’ll still have to route video through a PC if you’re more interested in creating content than watching it.

But hey, if you ARE interested in watching someone on Twitch, feel free to come check me out at twitch.tv/theroblogan. Maybe even drop a follow while you’re there.

Square Enix reveals Spider-Man’s outfits for Marvel’s Avengers

Square Enix has revealed not only the look of Spider-Man in Marvel’s Avengers, but also highlighted some of his alternate costumes that will be available.

For the PlayStation exclusive event, Peter Parker will form friendships with Ms. Marvel and Black Widow in his civilian identity as he tries to help them take down AIM. However, Spidey’s relationship with the Avengers may not be as easy to manage. While his comic book and MCU counterparts have been Avengers, this appears to be the first time that the Spidey of this world has joined the team.

In addition to his default look for the game, the company shared multiple alternate costumes, including a classic suit that inspired their new design, the Bugle Boy Suit featuring jeans, a sweater vest, and his costume mask, the Secret War Suit from that limited series, the Spider-Armor Mark I Suit based on the design from Web of Spider-Man #100, the Spider-Armor Mark III Suit also referred to as the Ends of the Earth suit, and the Noir Suit with its black leather trench coat, haphazardly stitched mask, and aviator goggles.

Spider-Man will be added to Marvel’s Avengers on PS4 and PS5 on November 30th.
