Kudos for you who saw this coming (and my condolences to those still hoping that it would be Agent Coulson). Today, it has been announced that Paul Bettany will be playing The Vision in the upcoming Avengers movie: Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron. For those unfamiliar with Bettany, you may have seen him in films such as The DaVinci Code, A Beautiful Mind, and A Knight’s Tale. But he isn’t new to the realm of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, since he’s also the voice of Tony Stark’s armor AI, JARVIS.
I feel this is a logical approach for introducing The Vision for the Marvel movies, since JARVIS has been part of the MCU since Iron Man 1. Also, Bettany has the chops to pull off the wall-phasing android. If you agree or disagree, let us know in the comments.

For the final bit of Sonic news today, there’s a new trailer showing off the new Sonic Boom cartoon. It’s just a small scene of Sonic fighting one of Eggman’s robots. But it’s worth checking out.
From the official Sega site:
“The Sonic Boom TV series is a co-production between SEGA of America, Inc. and OuiDO! Productions. Executive producers on the show are Evan Baily, Donna Friedman Meir and Jane McGregor on behalf of SEGA, and Sandrine Nguyen and Boris Hertzog from OuiDO!. Other partners involved in the TV series include Lagardère Entertainment Rights for distribution and Lagardère Active TV Licensing & New Business for licensing and merchandise in France.”

In more Sonic related news, we just come across a new trailer for the flagship game of the Sonic Boom relaunch. We get to see the whole Sonic team in this action/adventure title, which seems to take a few cues from Sonic Heroes. As of right now, the game is stated to be released on the WiiU and 3DS. No word on if it will be released on other consoles.

At the Year of Sonic press event today in New York City, we finally got a glimpse of the new designs of Sonic and friends. We’ll be seeing these designs in future cartoons, games, comics, and merchandise. As of right now, it is unknown whether or not this will be the new main continuity of Sonic or just a spin-off. All we know, the designers are clearly a fan of sports tap. Hell, it’s even on the goddamn shoes!
What do you guys think of this redesign? Let us know in the comments.
Also, along with these designs, Sanic, Sonic’s deformed brother, got a makeover as well. Gotta love that tape.
Took you long enough, Capcom. We finally got confirmation that the upcoming updated version of Monster Hunter 4 for the Nintendo 3DS (Monster Hunter 4G in Japan) will be released to the West as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The original iteration of the game, Monster Hunter 4, was released in Japan on September 14, 2013, to much acclaim and success. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will build upon the changes already established in MH4, which has more fluid 3-dimensional combat (you can climb and attack from walls and ceilings), new weapons, a new Guild Quest system, and, of course, new monsters to hunt. Monster Hunter 4 also has online multiplayer along with local play and Streetpass functionality.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is set to be released in the US and Europe in early 2015. I got my fingers across for a Wii U port, akin to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Maybe that can help out the struggling console.
