But if you simply must know what Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are about, the official synopsis for each film has been unveiled and they are glorious in their vagueness.

Marvel Video Games

The world of video games based on movies has consistently been a depressing one. Most of the time the games are weak, uninspired video game versions of the movie offering nothing original or exciting as far as gameplay is concerned. Even with something as exciting as the Marvel cinematic universe, the video games for characters such as Iron Man, Thor and Captain America have been downright awful. And it doesn’t sound like Marvel Games plans on trying that again anytime soon.

Suicide Squad

Even in a year jam-packed with superhero sequels and other bloated blockbusters, Suicide Squad‘s marketing has managed to stand out, and one of the reasons is the music. The promos have eschewed the traditionally bombastic action movie score for fun song choices like “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Ballroom Blitz.” And the official Suicide Squad soundtrack will keep the good times going.

Among the notable tracks are Skrillex and Rick Ross‘ “Purple Lamborghini,” the music video for which will feature Jared Leto‘s Joker; Panic! At the Disco‘s cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody”; and familiar hits like Eminem‘s “Without Me” and Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s “Fortunate Son.” Get the full Suicide Squad soundtrack list after the jump.  Read More »
