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 Russo Brothers, directors of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War have signed on to produce a television series based on the Valiant comic “Quantum and Woody.” Valiant has announced a number of multimedia properties, though only the Ninjak Vs the Valiant Unvierse webseries has entered production thus far.

– Emerald Comics Distribution, a possible future competitor to the near monopoly of Diamond, started business this month in Seattle according to a report on the Vanguard. Diamond may hold exclusive contracts with Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, IDW and others, but with the number of smaller publishers and self publishers who don’t, this new outlet could well fit a need for both creator and shops. Comic creator and ECD foudner Anne Bean is starting in the Pugett Sound area this month, personally visiting local shops to attempt to get the word out.

– On April 17 and 19th the Doctor Who Season 10 premiere will have a theatrical release across North America. The episode will be followed up with the first episode of Peter Capaldi’s run as the Doctor, “Class,” and a behind the scenes ‘Becoming a Companion’ feature that describes the creation process for Companions from choice of actor through determining who they are and their relationship to the Doctor. This is the final series for both Peter Capaldi as the Doctor and for Steven Moffat as director and showrunner.

New Power Rangers Sentries have been revealed over at ComicBook.com by series writer Kyle Higgins.

– Rob Leifield is hosting a 25th Anniversary celebration for Extreme Studios March 30th at Big Red Comics in Orange County. The reunion features 13 former members of the studio, including Marat Mychaels, Norm Rapmund, Art Thibert, Danny Miki, Matt Hawkins, Dan Panosian, and Dan Fraga.

– Did Samuel L. Jackson just spoil a potential MCU movie?

Emma Frost’s X-Men is going to by opposing the forces of Hydra-Cap in the summer Marvel crossover story “Secret Empire,” as the alt-Avengers push their world conquering agenda. The one shot “Secret Empire United” will be written by “Wayward,” “Skullkickers,” and “Thunderbolts” writer Jim Zub and illustrated by “Venom: Space Knight” artist Ario Anindito.

Finn Jones continues to defend Netflix’s Iron Fist against the criticism it’s received, this time blaming Donald Trump. Really.

– And, finally, an eagle-eyed Redditor spotted some Spider-Man 3 footage in the Life trailer.
