    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 details are a little sketchy, but it looks like Fox might be looking to retool its X-Men film franchise, taking the reins from Bryan Singer, who has acted as the overarching standard bearer for the series, and putting it into the hands of one of his lieutenants, Simon Kinberg. Again, details are scarce, but it looks like the studio was disappointed in the films’ financial success, and want to get them back on track. With Logan due out in March and Gambit nearing start of production – not to mention the Deadpool sequel that has already been announced – it seems like it won’t be the hardest of reboots, but we shall see.

    – Gabriel Luna, the actor who portrays Ghost Rider on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., claims that there have been “discussions” of him crossing over with the Netflix Marvel series at some point in the future. Not that there are plans in stone, but this is an interesting – and exciting – development.

    – Kevin Feige claims that the 2020 Marvel film titles are ‘spoilers.’ So, strap in for Hulk: I’m Black Widow Now, Avengers 4: Burying Captain America at Sea, and Captain Marvel 2: Iron Mansplaining.

    – Lots of quick Spider-Man: Homecoming news: Tom Holland is on board for 3 Spidey films and 3 other Marvel features, Michael Keaton is indeed playing the Vulture, and Zendaya is not playing a love interest in the film.

    – Later this month, DC is releasing the “New Talent Showcase” #1, featuring talent from the recent Creators’ Workshop. DC released a first look at the stories contained within the book and it looks like a lot of fun.

    – Marvel is adapting a portion of their 2005 “Black Panther” series into a novel next August.

    – There’s a new webcomic that sets the Superman story in Pakistan. Called “Kahlil,” the webseries is written and illustrated by Kumail Rizvi, and asks the question, “what if Kal-El landed in the East?”

    – And, finally, I wish this was a thing.
