    Welcome back to The Rundown, our daily breakdown on comic news stories we missed from the previous day. Have a link to share? Email our team at rundown@multiversitycomics.com.

    – The previously announced reboot of Hellboy will reportedly be dropping “Rise of the Blood Queen” as the subtitle. Hellboy creator Mike Mignola (“Cosmic Odyssey,” “Hellboy in Hell”) also confirmed that we would be seeing the B.P.R.D. in the film, though he was being particularly coy as to which members of the organization will be showing up on the big screen.

    – Musician Marvin “Krondon” Jones III has been cast as Tobias Whale in the first season of the CW’s upcoming Black Lightning/. Tobias Whale is the massive albino leader of the 100, the criminal organization who initially prompts Jefferson Pierce to become Black Lightning, and has been a key nemesis to the hero ever since. Black Lightning will be premiering in 2018 on the CW.

    – Muppety Captains, Draft Dodgers, Kingly Trees and much more are coming from publisher First Second next year. Among the new graphic novels are offerings from Hope Larson (“Batgirl,” “Compass South”), Scott Westerfield (“Extras,” “Spill Zone”), Vera Brosgol (“Anya’s Ghost,” “Leave Me Along!”) and many other talented writers and cartoonists. The graphic novels will all be coming out sometime spring 2018.

    – Yesterday we got our first trailer for the upcoming Batman vs. Two-Face, which will be Adam West (Batman, Family Guy)’s final performance. The film, which is a sequel to 2016’s Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader, will also feature William Shatner (Star Trek, Boston Legal) as the titular villain Two-Face, who never appeared on the 1966 Batman TV show. The film is rumored to be coming out October 17th of this year, but Warner Bros has yet to confirm that.

    – Riz Ahmed (Star Wars: Rogue One, Four Lions) is reportedly in talks to join Sony’s Spider-Man spin-off Venom. The film, which will not feature everyone’s favorite wall-crawler, has already cast Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises) as Eddie Brock the longtime host for the titular alien symbiote. While no news has surfaced on Ahmed’s role or when the film will begin shooting, Sony has already singled out an October 5th release date next year for the film.

    – In an article with Entertainment Weekly the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi shed some light on Benicio del Toro’s mysterious new character DJ. According to the interview DJ is a Slicer, the galaxy far far aways term for code jockeys, who the Resistance is attempting to recruit in the new film. DJ is described as a menacing man with ambiguous morals and no allegiances. The next installment of the space opera in a galaxy far far away will be out December 15 (and it can’t come soon enough)!
