We already knew that Israeli model-turned-actor Gal Gadot will appear in Batman vs. Superman (aka Man of Steel 2) as Wonder Woman, but the character won’t stop there. When Gadot inked her deal to portray the Amazonian superhero, she signed on for three pictures, according to Variety.

The news isn’t really surprising given the way studios are approaching superhero franchises – the record for multi-film agreements goes to Samuel L. Jackson, who signed on to appear in a whopping nine Marvel films – but it does seem to confirm that DC has long-term plans for the Amazonian princess. Following Wonder Woman’s appearance in Batman vs Superman, the character will likely appear in the often discussed but as-yet-unconfirmed Justice League film. After that, the character’s future falls into the realm of even more conjecture and rumor.

Warner Bros. has repeatedly claimed that Wonder Woman is high on the list of properties to adapt, but so far both TV shows and proposed films have fallen apart. Most recently, a Wonder Woman show titled Amazon was under development for the CW, but it was eventually scrapped. Prior to that, director Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids) pitched a Wonder Woman comedy, which WB briefly considered before passing on.

The report also cites an interview Gadot did with the Israeli entertainment talk show Good Evening with Gai Pines in which it was reported that she will earn $300,000 per film.

The deal will allow Warner Bros a bit of breathing room when it comes to figuring out what to do with the character. If the reaction is strong enough, it will almost certainly lead to a standalone movie starring Gadot. With the actor still under contract, the turnaround could be relatively quick. If audiences don’t react well to the character, Wonder Woman could still appear in at least three DC films in a supporting role.

How to sign up for the Hades 2 playtest
Melinoe fighting in a dark forest.

We first saw Hades 2 last year when it was announced, but it has yet to receive a release date. We know it will first be coming to early access, just like the first game, but the only timeframe we have is the second quarter of 2024. It appears that Supergiant might be closing in on that date, however, as you can now sign up for the first playtest and experience the game even before it comes to early access. This technical test is a said to be a major step toward early access to resolve any technical problems before a wider audience can play. Here's how you can sign up to be part of a small team selected to play the game before anyone else.

The best Fallout 4 mods
Everyone's Best Friend

The Fallout games, at least since Fallout 3, have been absolutely massive games in both scale and popularity. The post-nuclear-war setting is rife with interesting stories to experience and monsters to kill. Fallout 4 was the last single-player entry in the series before Fallout 76 took the game into a persistent multiplayer experience. A large appeal of these games is how you are able to actually role-play and immerse yourself in the game world, which isn't so easy with other players jumping around in their underwear. Thanks to mods, it has never been a better time to revisit the last "pure" Fallout game.

Just like Skyrim, Fallout 4 mods are incredibly popular. Some are inspired to fix the numerous bugs and glitches Bethesda games have become famous for, while others look to add new features. As open and dynamic as the base game is, mods just open the door to an almost endless supply of tools you can use to extend the life of your game. With so many mods available, it can be a little overwhelming to know where to start. We've sorted through all the best Fallout 4 mods out there and came up with the best ones you should install before stepping out of the vault once again.
