    And now the news…

    • Let’s kick things off with the movie news first, shall we? David Harbour’s been teasing his version of Hellboy over on his instagram. And David Dae Kim has been teasing his version of Daimio (though revealing nothing).

    Deadline reports on further casting announcements: Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) will play Lady Hatton, one seventh of the Osiris Club (most recently appeared in “B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know” #3); Alistair Petrie (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) will be playing Lord Adam Glaren, in the comics a member of the Heliopic Brotherhood of Ra (see “B.P.R.D.: Garden of Souls” and “Witchinfder: Lost and Gone Forever”), but in the film another member of the Osiris Club; and Brian Gleeson (Love/Hate) will play Merlin (see “Hellboy: The Storm and the Fury”).
