Infinity War Director Details Spider-Man’s Final Scene

One of the toughest moments to watch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films comes from the tail end of Avengers: Infinity War. It consisted of numerous, shocking scenes the audience wasn’t prepared for, but in the audio commentary for the digital release, fans learned a bit more about Spider-Man’s final, heartbreaking scene. Warning: Avengers: Infinity War spoilers ahead.

After collecting all of the Infinity Stones, Thanos snaps his fingers and half of the sentient life in the universe dissolves into dust. One of the tougher moments to watch was Spider-Man fading away, which took a lot longer to happen than any other heroes. Originally, that wasn’t the case as we learned in the audio commentary.

“If I remember correctly, it was, ‘I don’t feel so good,’ Tony looked at him, he said, ‘I’m sorry,’ and disappeared,” director Joe Russo said. “And then on the day, we kept driving to put more and more emotion into it, and just went up to Tom [Holland] and said, ‘You don’t want to go. You’re a child. And you’re using your strength as Spider-Man to fight this.’ And then that was the performance that came out.”

Spider-Man lasted the longest on screen before fading away, showing that he has the most fight in him, even though he’s the youngest superhero in the movie. Holland’s performance is extremely powerful at the end of the film, and it’s one of the most memorable scenes.

You can hear the audio commentary for yourself if you pick up a digital copy of Infinity War, which is on sale now. The movie will come to 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD on Tuesday, August 14, and it’s filled with special features. Here’s what we learned from the home release.

Monster Hunter World Adds Final Fantasy’s Behemoth In New Update

Capcom has rolled out a new update for Monster Hunter World on PS4 and Xbox One. This marks the fourth major one the game has received since it launched for the consoles earlier this year, and it introduces a variety of Final Fantasy XIV-inspired content, including a fearsome new monster to hunt: Behemoth.

The iconic Final Fantasy boss has invaded the New World, making this the first time in Monster Hunter’s history that a monster from another video game series has been featured in one of its titles. Behemoth is a particularly challenging foe; as Capcom advises on the PlayStation Blog, players will need to employ MMO-style strategies and designate tank, attacker, and support roles among the group to weather the beast’s onslaught and succeed.

Behemoth also has some unique tricks in its repertoire that make it an especially fearsome monster to battle. Its Enmity causes it to focus on and “relentlessly” attack a particular target. It can also unleash the Ecliptic Meteor, a devastating attack that will cause players to instantly faint if struck. According to Capcom, the only way to avoid this blow is to hide behind smaller meteors that were summoned by Behemoth during the battle.

In addition to Behemoth, the update introduces a new set of weapons and gear inspired by the Dragoon class from Final Fantasy XIV. Players will also be able to get their hands on a new Palico gear set that turns the feline companions into a Moogle, while Cactuars can be found around the environment and even used as traps.

You can find the full patch notes for the latest Monster Hunter World update on Capcom’s official blog. The update is available to download for free on both PS4 and Xbox One. It weighs in at approximately 900 MB on the former console and 1 GB on the latter.

Final Fantasy XIV players won’t miss out on the crossover fun. As part of Capcom’s collaboration with Square Enix, the iconic Rathalos will appear in Final Fantasy XIV beginning August 7. Players who manage to beat the monster will get Rathalos armor and a Rathalos mount.

Wario Takes Over Nintendo’s Twitter Account For WarioWare Gold Promotion

WarioWare Gold is now available, and Nintendo is promoting the new 3DS release by having the iconic villain take over the official Nintendo Twitter account. It kicked off with as much Wario laughter as could fit in the Twitter character limit and a change of profile pic, and went from there.

The madcap zaniness has included some looks at the games included in WarioWare Gold, some greedy admissions, and a slightly rigged poll that Wario is, mysteriously, winning handily so far.

The bit of flavorful personality is obviously meant to promote WarioWare Gold, a mega-mash-up of a wide variety of classic WarioWare classic micro-games with a handful of new inclusions. In GameSpot’s WarioWare Gold review, James O’Connor called it a “true greatest hits package that showcases Wario’s unique weirdo vibe, and this style of play remains inventive and thrilling.” It’s also enjoying a generally positive reception across the critical spectrum according to GameSpot sister site Metacritic.

Nintendo has turned these character takeover promotions into a somewhat regular trend. When Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze launched on Switch in February, it was Cranky Kong who took over for a bit of silly fun. We can probably expect Wario’s tenure to last through the day, if not the weekend.
