Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire Director Addresses the Pink Godzilla
Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire director Adam Wingard stopped by IGN Fan Fest to share some new details on the upcoming film, including why Godzilla is partially pink now.
“I wanted it to be part of the major drive of the story, why Godzilla was getting this new look,” Wingard said. “And the pink colour itself, it’s not random. Within the movie there’s actually reasoning behind why he actually turns pink. It’s not just like, he evolves and for some reason the blue turns to pink.
“With that said, pink is my favourite colour,” he laughed. “Our editorial that we edit the movie in, it was covered with pink lights, and generally I usually have pink fairy lights in any room that I’m in.”
You can watch the full interview with Wingard above and hear him talk on such topics as evolved monsters, the rise of Anti-Kong, Kong’s new weapon called the Beast Glove, the introduction of Suko aka Baby Kong, and more.
Kevin Eastman Reveals Details on the New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the co-writer of TMNT: The Last Ronin II Re-Evolution gave IGN Fan Fest a new look at the new comic that is set to be released on March 6, 2024.
“[The Last Ronin II] was something that we really questioned and really hadn’t planned when we started doing Last Ronin, so we found a place that we wanted to stay and tell stories for as long as we could. What you’re seeing here specifically takes place 16 years after Last Ronin I ended,” Eastman said. “Casey Marie Jones is the woman in the purple you see there with the half of a Casey mask on, and she’s trained to become the sensei and general parent of the new turtles. They’re going out on one of their first missions.”
He also shared how the team wanted to make the four new turtles – Yi, Odyn, Moja, and Uno – distinct, adapting The Last Ronin to a video game, and more.
Star Trek: Discovery’s Final Season Will Focus on More of an ‘Adventure Vibe’

Capcom on Street Fighter 6 DLC Character Ed — and a Little Akuma Tease
Street Fighter 6 director Takayuki Nakayama and producer Shuhei Matsumoto talked with IGN about the upcoming DLC character Ed and gave a little Akuma tease.
“It was an experiment for the developers when they were working on Street Fighter 5 to make Ed the prototype of the modern controls we see in Street Fighter 6,” Nakayama said. “However, his move roster has been updated from the past title. It’s not a complete replica of what you get to experience in Street Fighter 5. We’ve made some tweaks and updates so his Modern controls in Street Fighter 6 are also fun and compelling.
“Ed is strong in close range combat with his boxing fighting style. He has a lot of target combos. Unlike his moveset in Street Fighter 5 he no longer has kick moves. They’re all punches. His kick moves are designated to these flicker jabs that have pretty good reach. So not only is he strong in close quarters but also talented in terms of mid-range attacks as well.
“However, he shines brightest when he is up in the face of the opposing character, and has a lot of unique combos only capable through Ed. We recommend you get aggressive. Get in there and show what you’ve got.”
As for Akuma, Matsumoto wasn’t willing to give us to much about the hotly anticipated arrival of the DLC character in Spring, but he did say, “He’s awesome looking with lots of great effects. We’re going to be carefully planning out how we present this character to you guys. So we can’t wait to show you this new character.”
Invincible Creator Robert Kirkman Casts Doubt on Prime Video Spider-Man Crossover
Invincible co-creator was part of IGN Fan Fest 2024 and shared that, despite fan-deman for Spider-Man to appear in the series, it’s unlikely to happen.
“Would that we could pull the powers of Amazon and Disney and Marvel and everybody together!” Kirkman said. “Wouldn’t that be an amazing thing? But I wouldn’t count on it. And that’s not a tease.”
He also talked about the villainous Omni-Man and that he still believes he isn’t an evil character even though he’s done a ton of horrible things.
“There’s a big arc that he’s gonna be going through,” Kirkman said. “There’s a lot of talk of Amazon and their evil Supermen with Homelander and Omni-Man. There’s a big difference in what we’re trying to do with Omni-Man, and who he is as a character. It’s reductive to just refer to him as an evil Superman. He is not an evil character.”
Invincible Season 2 Part 2 will be released on Prime Video on March 14, 2024.
