Activision Blizzard Hit With Another Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
We’ll get the serious stuff out of the way first, as yet another employee is suing the company over a “pervasive ‘frat-boy’ workplace culture.” The lawsuit has been put forward by a woman refered to as Jane Doe and alleges that former manager Miguel Vega sexually harassed her after she began working at Activision Blizzard in 2016.

Now that the Mario movie’s first trailer is out in the wild, the stars of the project have been talking a little more openly about what fans can start to expect. Toad voice actor Keegan-Michael Key recently gave us the clearest indication that the movie will be a lot more musical than some of Illumination’s previous titles, as Key explains he got to “improvise a song” for Toad. If Toad is getting his own song, it stands to reason that bigger characters like Mario and Bowser will also be getting their groove on.
