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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
– Entertainment Weekly announced that Marvel will be publishing “Unbelievable Gwenpool” from Christopher Hastings and Gurihiru. The interview with Hastings is pretty weird, especially since EW insists that Gwenpool has been super popular and a smash hit with readers… has she? Because from what I’ve read in the “Howard the Duck” back-ups, Gwenpool’s kind of just Marvel responding to DC trying to turn Harley Quinn into their own Deadpool by cutting out the middle man and just awkwardly mashing the characters together. Uh, look for this to drop in April?
– Sony delayed the animated Spider-Man movie being written by Chris Miller and Phil Lord because the first draft didn’t have enough Gwenpool.
– Kurt Russell was on the Happy Sad Confused podcast where he confirmed that he had actually been contacted by Marvel for a role in Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2. Kurt Russell hasn’t officially accepted whatever part he’s being offered, as he’s trying to leverage his way into the far more lucrative Gwenpool movie in 2020.
– Mark Ruffalo told Yahoo! Movies that Marvel and Universal, the studio that still owns the rights to any Hulk movies, are working on a solo Hulk film but since the companies don’t exactly get along, everything’s kind of in a gridlock. Universal is reportedly ready to greenlight a new Hulk film whenever, but not until they’re promised a cut of that sweet sweet Gwenpool money.
