If fans are very lucky, the fictional dimension of Tony Soprano could cross space and time and connect to the Sixties and Seventies of Don Draper in Mad Men. It’s a long shot, but it’s totally possible that the new Sopranos prequel film could exist in the Mad Men timeline.

On Thursday, Deadline reported that Sopranos creator David Chase sold a screenplay to New Line Cinema called The Many Saints Of Newark, and that the film is a prequel to his groundbreaking HBO mobster series. According to Deadline “ the time period indicates there will be room for Tony Soprano’s father, Giovanni ‘Johnny Boy’…” which indicates it will be set either in the Sixties or the Seventies.

Which is where Mad Men comes in. In 2015, writing for VICE, Lincoln Michel pointed out that Mad Men’s Bob Benson talks to a man who seems to be a younger version of Uncle “Junior”, also known to Sopranos fans as Corrado Soprano or “Uncle Jun.” The IRL connection here is that Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner wrote for The Sopranos. So, will David Chase acknowledge this nod, and include Mad Men references in The Many Saints Of Newark?

If a Mad Men/Sopranos shared universe is coming, and Don Draper is a part of it, it could be the perfect way for Jon Hamm to return to a role that made him famous. Who knows? Maybe Don had dealings with the Soprano family that we never saw?

This is all assuming Jon Hamm has enough time to do such a thing. Because, if he does end up playing the voice of Boba Fett in the next Star Wars movie, he might be kind of busy.

The Many Saints of Newark does not have a release date.

There are many lists on the internet that rank the greatest fight scenes, or the most impressive stunts pulled off by living human beings. This list is not like any of those. The following items listed below are, with some room for debate, the most influential stunts and action sequences in cinema, the ones that raised the bar and define what action movies looks like today.

One of Fortnite: Battle Royale’s most annoying Season 6 challenges is back for Season 7, but thankfully it’s given a festive twist and made just a little bit easier. Here’s what you need to know to find and play the piano sheet music in Fortnite Season 7 Week 2.

Fortnite’s latest challenges hit on Thursday morning and the playing of giant pianos is back in festive fashion. Except it’s a Christmas miracle that we don’t actually have to find the sheet music first like in Season 6. These days, players can head straight to the pianos to play beautiful renditions of “Jingle Bells” and “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been out for less than a week, but one of the world’s top Smash players is already offering a (preliminary) tier list. Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios, who dominated Smash Bros. Wii U tournaments, recently offered up a ranking of the new Ultimate roster in a Twitch stream (via EventHubs).

A mythical new weapon has come to the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale in the form of the Infinity Blade from the video game series of the same name, and it just made one place on the map the most trafficked location of all.

Following up on a Monday teaser, Epic Games introduced a sword called the Infinity Blade to Fortnite Season 7 and it’s so much more than another pickaxe like some players thought. The Fortnite version 7.01 patch notes outline everything to know about this new weapon, and it’s unlike anything else we’ve seen before in the game. In fact, the closest thing to the Infinity Blade is the Infinity Gauntlet that transformed players into Thanos for the Infinity War crossover in April. (Both items are classified as “Mythic.”)

Something happened to the survivors in the six years between Rick’s “death” and Judith saving Magna’s group on The Walking Dead Season 9, and as a result, the communities are divided. Michonne’s not exactly welcomed at the Hilltop with open arms, but could the introduction of the Whisperers and a major death in the midseason finale be what brings everyone back together?
