A new game is debuting this Tuesday, April 16th, on all major gaming platforms. Dubbed as Injustice: Gods Among Us, it’s a unique mix of superheroes from the DC Universe pitted against one another, blurring the lines between heroes and villains, good and bad.

I haven’t paid attention as the game is being developed though I have known for a while that such a title is in the works. I found little interest, until I saw the artwork, and the trailers for the new game. As a fan of Superman, I simply must have it. Via Twitter, I knew that DataBlitz is holding a preorder promotion. I didn’t pay attention at first, thinking I’d just get the standard game when it gets out. I’m glad my curiosity got the better of me and checked the game’s official page as well as their official social media outlets.

Now I’m one of those eagerly anticipating the release date. And what fan would be caught buying only the standard release of the game when there is a Collector’s Edition, with a comic book and a 23-centimeter figurine, among the offerings? I almost missed it, too, and most certainly would have regretted it. Good thing I was able to put in my order before the window time closed.

If you are like me, and couldn’t wait to get a go on the game, try out the iOS game of the same title. It’s highly entertaining and addictive. Graphics are astounding, too!

On July 22nd, expect the movie theaters to get jam-packed as this year’s most highly anticipated movie Captain America: The First Avenger opens. Reservations aside, I’m excited to see the movie after seeing the Super Bowl XLV TV Spot.

With Chris Evans playing the titular role, I would assume there’ll be plenty of skepticism to go around. Evans playing two Marvel Superheroes doesn’t exactly put people’s minds at ease. His first stint in the Marvel Universe is the Human Torch from the Fantastic Four movies.

Along with Evans, the film stars Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Neal McDonough, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones. Direction is handled by Joe Johnston.

If the trailer isn’t enough, have your fill with these movie stills and posters.

Hot Toys already announced they acquired the license to create the 1:6 version. I just seriously hope HT doesn’t mess up the figure, ‘cause I can’t wait to have this beside my new Iron Man 2 Mark IV figure.
