If she said something like "I loved the games as a kid, especielly Legend"I wouldn't have said anything because who am I to say that she lyed?

But to say that she played Rise and Shadow it would mean that she should be a person that still plays videogames as an adult, since Shadow is from two years ago... (like us, but not everybody does that)

Is she a gamer? Because if she is not, then she lyed.

Not that it's important, I just don't like lying in general; just because she got this role as a director, it doesn't mean that she has to pretend to be a superfan.

Look at Roar, he didn't pretend to be a superfan but then he did a lot of research and got invested on the saurce material and made a solid movie with tons of references to the games.

I'm sorry Grizzly, but I see no reason for her to have lied. All she's done is name her favourites. I'm really confused by your assumptions.

Becuse I see people being like "The Chosen One", but I feel like she wasn't completely honest, she probably just said that to have this reaction by fans.

I don't have Instagram or Twitter so I can't check so probably I'm wrong and she plays videogames in her free time including Tomb Raider; again, I'm no one to judge.

I always believe people, but this particular case doesn't convince me, at all. Just my personal opinion.

^I mean, she's only 36! It's totally normal for her to play video games.

Yes of course! I will be playing video games forever, that's not the problem I was saying, I was assuming she wrote that just to be loved by fans even if it wasn't true.

However, I just realised that I have to take back what I said because she just said that her favourites are Rise and Shadow; she didn't say "I am a superfan, I played Rise and Shadow in my free time even before getting this job", so she could mean that she played them after she got the role as a director and loved them!
So yes, I was wrong here, my bad! Sorry Misha!

Plenty of Lara Croft coming our way. Makes me believe this sequel film will be an original story if Netflix will do an Anime Series that picks up straight after Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

This is crazy, also weird how Legendary TV is producing this adaptation for anime vs MGM for the film as MGM does have a Television division but we have a Resident Evil style setup going on here where there's new movies but also that Netflix series.
Holy cow! Tomb Raider Anime? In the reboot continuity? Following a possibly late 40s/early 50s Lara (25 years after the TR2013, she'd be 46)? Damn, I am impressed! This can be incredibly interesting! And possibly an idea to where the games are going next! Damn, this is so interesting!

Man, this week keeps getting better and better! And we might not things releasing on time for it, but at least in terms of announcements, the 25th anniversary is getting greater by the second!

No,no,no,no the 25th year after her first game is about the franchise as a whole not the reboot timeline ^^

To be fair, I was confused about that too. The wording isn't great.

Yeah, the wording is confusing.

Still, excited.

Still, that big of a time jump, especially if the games also followed it, could be very interesting for Lara Croft and female videogame protagonists in general. Not many woman over 40 (or even 30, 35) as protagonists in the medium. It could actually be very interesting and make Lara set new grounds for what a videogame heroine could be.

In regards to whether Misha plays games or not, she has said in interviews that she frequently plays Injustice 2. That sort of seems like a niche game to just rhyme off to me.
