Anonymous Claims NASA Is Announcing the Existence of Aliens Soon

World famous hacking activists Anonymous say that NASA is “on the verge” of announcing the existence of aliens. Anonymous is known for its hacking abilities into larger websites of news organizations and corporations. The international group of activists or hacktivists originated in 2003 on 4chan, representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as a singular anarchic, digitized brain. Many out in the world praise the actions of the activists while there are just as many who denounce their actions.

Anonymous has now taken to their official Anonymous YouTube account to reveal that NASA will be announcing the existence of intelligent alien life. The caption for the video reads “NASA says aliens are coming!” The video has been watched nearly 1.5 million times with a huge section of comments, questions, and standard hate. Even more interesting is that the video has 3,142 likes and only 692 dislikes at the time of this writing.

Anonymous’ claim comes from a meeting in April of this year of the United States Science Space and Technology Committee. The video takes a quote from Professor Thomas Zurbuchen, the administrator for the Science Mission Directorate. He says this.

“There are many who claim that unofficially, mankind has already made contact with aliens and not just little micro-organisms floating around inside a massive alien ocean, but advanced space-faring civilizations.”

Professor Zurbuchen went on to expand on his original thought. He explains.

“25 years ago, we didn’t know that planets existed beyond our solar system. Today we have confirmed the existence of over 3,400 exoplanets that orbit other suns, and we continue to make new discoveries.”

The Professor then says something rather interesting about missions of the last 25 years and their focus. He says this.

“Taking into account all of the different activities and missions that are specifically searching for evidence of alien life we are on the verge of making one of the most profound and unprecedented discoveries in history.”

??

The new findings represent a huge explosion of knowledge that we have obtained in such a short amount of time, but does it prove the potential of possible alien life on other planets? The video goes on to say that NASA has slowly been trying to prepare the world for their upcoming announcement, an announcement that could very well change the world forever. But we trust the views of Anonymous on this subject?

Anonymous’ video adds that a number of the most recent findings are providing grounds for optimism that humanity must be close to encountering life that is not native to earth. Now there are already a lot of people saying that the information is completely and utterly false, but there has not been an official statement released by NASA at this time to dispute Anonymous’ claims. It is entirely possible that Anonymous is capable of hacking into NASA, so one has to wonder why they’re taking information that NASA has already made public and reading in between the lines. Regardless of what you may think, the recent scientific discoveries in space are a giant leap forward to humans understanding the universe around them. We’ll just have to wait and see whether NASA makes a big alien announcement in the near future. Check out the video below and decide for yourself.

Doctor Strange, Iron Man & Hulk Team Up in Infinity War Set Photos

Just a few days after a new set photo teased the formation of the Illuminati, more set photos from Avengers: Infinity War have surfaced with the same four actors seen on a destructive set. While very little was revealed about the scene being filmed, the Atlanta set was being used as a New York City street, with New York taxicabs spotted amid plenty of destruction. It’s unclear what happened, or how this New York street was destroyed, but it could very well have been the work of Thanos (Josh Brolin). Still, this photo shows Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Bruce Banner/Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Wong (Benedict Wong) together, uniting the Illuminati.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed last October that Avengers: Infinity War will in fact introduce the Illuminati, although he wouldn’t specify what characters would be a part of that group. Both Iron Man and Doctor Strange were charter members of this group in the comics, and it certainly seems possible that Wong and Hulk could be the new members, given Strange’s connection to Benedict Wong’s Wong, and Tony Stark’s “science bros” connection to Bruce Banner/Hulk. In the comics, the group also included Namor and the Inhumans character Black Bolt, along with characters Marvel Studios does not control, such as Professor X from the X-Men and Mr. Fantastic from Fantastic Four. These photos were taken from the Atlanta set by the Associated Press.

In the Marvel Comics, the Illuminati was created as a secret society to share information with each other, without the knowledge of the other Avengers or other superheroes they were affiliated with. The group was formed at the end of the Kree-Skrull war, when it was learned that several of these heroes possessed information that could have stopped the war much earlier. Other members of the Illuminati were Captain America, Black Panther and Amadeus Cho, who was recently announced as the new Incredible Hulk in the Marvel Comics, although he has yet to debut in the MCU. Perhaps this character could be introduced in Avengers: Infinity War or even Avengers 4, perhaps joining Iron Man and Hulk as the latest addition to the Science Bros.

Despite Kevin Feige confirming that Avengers: Infinity War will introduce the Illuminati, no further details were given, and it will be interesting to see what will be used as the impetus for this group being formed. The Avengers: Infinity War synopsis released last month revealed that the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from theaters too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. This nefarious villan’s goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment, and the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

It was also recently confirmed that Infinity War and Avengers 4 are being shot separately, after the studio had originally planned to shoot both movies simultaneously. Now the production will wrap after finishing Avengers: Infinity War, with the cast and crew taking a brief break before returning to film Avengers 4. The Avengers 4 title will likely not be revealed until after Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018, since Kevin Feige confirmed that the title alone is a spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War. Take a look at the latest set photos from the Atlanta set of Avengers: Infinity War as production continues.

The Batman to Be Inspired by Arkham Video Game Series?

The rumor mill is swirling again for The Batman, but for far less sinister reasons this time around. Last week The Batman director Matt Reeves revealed that the movie will have a pretty large Alfred Hitchcock influence, which in turn excited many fans who are ready to see Batman return to his detective roots. And now seemingly piggybacking off of that rumor comes a report from WeGotThisCovered claiming that The Batman may also be diving into Rocksteady Studios’ popular and critically acclaimed Arkham video game series.

Apparently, the plan is to keep the majority of Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns’ original story in place with Chris Terrio putting his own personal touch on the screenplay. In addition, it is rumored that The Batman may take a cue from the original Arkham Asylum game by starting with a massive breakout at Arkham Asylum led by Deathstroke. Now, this does seem to fall in line with information that has been previously reported, especially how Deathstroke might fit into the movie and how the more detective elements of the game might influence The Batman, coinciding with Reeves’ announcement that there is going to be a Hitchcock element to the upcoming movie.

The newest rumor also suggests that Matt Reeves is pushing to have all of the major villains in The Batman, which has been reported numerous times before, but it seems to go against the vision that Ben Affleck has had since he signed on to write, direct, and ultimately star in the movie. Obviously there have been some major changes regarding the director, but hopefully the rumor is false on that point. It would be much better to have a few villains instead of a heap of them, turning into some Suicide Squad type of situation. We all know how that worked out…

In the original Arkham Asylum video game, it is the Joker who orchestrates the breakout of the asylum, not Deathstroke, but Ben Affleck has mentioned in the past that he wants to dive into villains that have not yet been seen on the big screen and Deathstroke definitely fits into that description. Though when asked in January if he was still onboard to portray Deathstroke, Joe Manganiello replied that he didn’t know anymore. It has also rumored that Josh Gad might step in to play the Penguin in the upcoming movie, but that would go against the other rumors that were just presented unless Deathstroke and Penguin team up after getting out of Arkham, which isn’t that much of a stretch.

The Batman is still, as far as we know, to be on schedule but nothing official has been announced in quite a while. The Getty recently interviewed Matt Reeves where he confirmed that Ben Affleck was still on board to portray the Dark Knight, which is comforting since Affleck’s name was not attached when Warner Bros. made the official announcement that Reeves would take over as director. The Batman is still set to officially be released on October 5th, 2018.

Mini Super Nintendo Classic Console Is Coming This Fall

Nintendo fans all over the world have been speculating about the release of a possible Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic ever since the NES Classic (kind of) hit the shelves late in 2016. And now Nintendo has officially announced it. The NES Classic came out in November of 2016 and instantly sold out everywhere due to limited stock being produced and led to widespread secondary market sales before and after the holiday season. Though the list price was $59.99 USD, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who spent less than $200 on one before Christmas with many auctions getting nearly $500 for one of the miniature systems.

The announcement of the SNES Classic was made via Nintendo’s Twitter account with a release date of September 29th, 2017 in North America. The miniature system will contain 21 classic games built into the tiny handheld replica of an SNES this time around with a previously unreleased Star Fox 2 with an $80 USD price tag. This is 9 games less than the NES Classic, but the system will come standard with 2 controllers unlike the NES version. In addition to Star Fox 2, the other games included are Contra III: The Alien Wars, Donkey Kong Country, Earthbound, Final Fantasy III, F-ZERO, Kirby Super Star, Kirby’s Dream Course, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Mega Man X, Secret of Mana, Star Fox, Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Castlevania IV, Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Super Punch-Out!!, and Yoshi’s Island.

The miniature console will have a region specific design as well. Europe and other territories will receive the Super Famicon style, which is the same console with a different visual design. There is no doubt that this will be the hot ticket item this holiday season, so do yourself a favor and preorder as soon as you can to avoid shopping on the secondary market. The NES Classic launched in November of 2016 and sold over 2.3 million units, but was never readily available in stores or online. Instead of producing more of the hot item, Nintendo chose to simply discontinue it. It is unclear if Nintendo decided to discontinue the console after hackers figured out a way to illegally load up another 670 games on to the console using ROMs from online.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System came out in Japan as the Super Famicom in November of 1990 and the Super Nintendo in North America bundled with Super Mario World in August of 1991. To say that the new 16-bit system was in high demand would be a serious understatement. The release of the SNES sparked the console war between the Sega Genesis (deemed as the cooler of the consoles) and the Super Nintendo, but Nintendo sold more units. 49.1 million units were sold worldwide. Though many “purist” gamers considered the Genesis to be the cooler system, Nintendo was able to secure the rights to Capcoms’ Street Fighter II, which helped Nintendo sell a lot more consoles.

Nintendo’s latest console, the Switch was launched in March of this year and is still hard to get in stores, almost guaranteeing that the SNES Classic will be near impossible to obtain in stores on the day of launch. If preorders are offered, take advantage or go make friends with the dudes at Game Stop because this will sell out. It is not clear if Nintendo will be making the SNES Classic a limited item like the NES Classic, but the odds sure seem to point that way so don’t sleep on it this time around.

Super Mario World, Earthbound, Star Fox 2 + 18 more games? Now you’re playing with super power! #SNESClassic launches 9/29. pic.twitter.com/BPPGjpskPT

The Accountant 2 Moves Forward with Ben Affleck

Are you ready for some rather unexpected sequel news? Because we’ve got some for you. It looks like Ben Affleck is about to have another franchise under his belt to go along with Batman, but there is significantly less pressure on this one. It looks like Warner Bros., in a very unexpected movie, is working on The Accountant 2, a movie that wasn’t particularly well-liked by critics and didn’t exactly crush at the box office.

According to Deadline, The Accountant 2 is going to happen and it looks like the entire creative team is going to return. Not only is Ben Affleck going to return to headline the movie, but director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) and writer Bill Dubuque are also in talks to return for the sequel. Producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Mark Williams are also reportedly on board. According to Deadline, Daredevil star Jon Bernthal is also expected to return for the sequel, who became a very important part of the first movie in the final act.

The Accountant centered on a character, played by Ben Affleck, who is a mathematical genius who has a high-functioning autism. When he’s not helping out some small town folks with their accounting issues, he is cooking the books for some of the world’s most deadly and feared criminals. After taking on a job for a tech company that goes south, he has to put his skills as an assassin to good use as well, in order to protect a girl he just met (played by Anna Kendrick) from getting killed. He winds up stacking up a whole lot of bodies in the process.

Warner Bros. absolutely loves Ben Affleck. Even though his latest directorial effort Live By Night was a huge flop. He got them a Best Picture Oscar with Argo and, as mentioned previously, is currently playing the Caped Crusader in the DCEU. So on one hand, it isn’t all that surprising that the studio would want to center an action/thriller franchise around Affleck if they can. But the numbers, at least at first glance, simply don’t seem to justify a sequel to The Accountant.

With an A-list cast and a pretty hefty marketing campaign, The Accountant managed to bring in $155.1 million worldwide against a $44 million budget. That isn’t exactly a John Wick situation, which was much cheaper to make. However, it looks like the movie probably cleared some money at the box office and, if more people are finding it and enjoying it on Blu-ray/streaming, there could be more interest in a sequel. Many critics probably aren’t going to be thrilled, as the movie currently holds a 52 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but Warner Bros. has learned that you can make good money with or without critics.

In terms of when The Accountant 2 could come out? That seems a bit unsure right now. Deadline didn’t give a timetable for release and things sound like they are in the early stages. Not only that, but Gavin O’Connor is working on a reboot of Green Hornet and Ben Affleck will be tied up making The Batman for a bit. Maybe that will give the studio time to get things together and will give Affleck something to do before hopping back in the Batsuit.

Artist Salvador Dali’s Body Is Being Exhumed in Paternity Claim

Salvador Dali was laid to rest in January of 1989 at the age of 84 in a crypt below the stage of his Theatre and Museum in Figueres, Spain. But now the artist and filmmaker is set to be exhumed for a paternity claim. Yes, for real, not fake news. Salvador Dalí was one of the most famous artists of the 20th century surrealist period, painting, sculpting, making movies, and even getting into fashion and photography. His surrealist paintings were often overlooked by his grandiose and unusual public behavior to the dismay of his many followers and his critics.

CNN is reporting that a judge in Madrid has ordered the exhumation of Salvador Dali’s body to obtain DNA samples for a paternity claim. Maria Pilar Abel Martinez born in 1956 in Girona, claims that her mother, a maid, had an affair with Dali while he was married to Elena Ivanovna Diakonova, best know as Gala, Dali’s muse. “The only thing I’m missing is a mustache” is how Martinez has described herself over the years. The 61-year old tarot card reader (yes, you read that correctly) has claimed since 2007 that she is Salvador Dali’s daughter and who would know better than a psychic, right?

Dali never had any other children and left his entire estate to the country of Spain. If Martinez is able to prove that she is indeed the daughter of the famous artist, she’ll be entitled to a portion of his state and be granted the use of his name after applying through the Spanish Government. Martinez has apparently had three DNA tests since 2007, but she has never received the results according to her own words. Since there are no biological remains of Salvador Dali to test, the judge has ordered to dig the artist up.

Now this story is strange for a number of reasons, but another factor that should be taken into account is that Salvador Dali was notoriously afraid of physical contact of any kind. He and Gala had an open marriage where Dali took on the role of a voyeur, who liked to watch his wife and muse have sexual relations with other people. Though Dali’s artwork focused on sex and depravity, it is rumored that he may have been a virgin before his marriage to Gala. In his autobiography Dali admitted to having an intense addiction to masturbation, preferring the solo act to being with another human being physically.

Martinez claims that her mother stated regularly that her father is Salvador Dali privately and publicly in front of others. There has not been an official date set for the exhumation, but Martinez’s lawyer is claiming that it could happen as early as July, which is only a few weeks away. The Dali Foundation has said that an appeal will be ‘lodged in the coming days,’ which should slow the process down quite a bit. It should be pretty interesting to watch this whole story unfold in court.
