    Collider is reporting that Mark Hamill will in fact be returning to voice The Joker in the animated adaptation of The Killing Joke. While I love Mark Hamill’s Joker more than any other actor’s, part of me wishes it wasn’t this story he was returning to do. Still, this will definitely be good news for some.

    – Tom Taylor has an interview with CBR about writing the upcoming “All-New Wolverine” and Laura Kinney taking over her clone-dad’s mantle. This is one of the post-“Secret Wars” titles that I’m most excited about so this is an interesting read.

    – In an interview with NPR, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, writers and directors of the upcoming Vacation, have confirmed that they will be writing the also upcoming Spider-Man film. Having seen the trailer for Vacation, I don’t know if I can say I’m okay with this choice. That trailer opens with a very transphobic joke and that’s the kind of stuff I want very far away from my Spider-Man film.

    – While we don’t know anything about what the film will be about, ComicsAlliance has the skinny on the production of Fox’s Gambit film starring Channing Tatum. From the sounds of it, it seems like the film will be taking LeBeau back to New Orleans and having him deal with the thieves guilds that are prevalent in his origins in the comics.

    Deadline have reported that Andrew Howard will be joining Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD in its third season. I’m sure this will interesting news to anyone still watching that show, as I’m not one of those people.

    – Finally, CBR has coverage of a panel at this year’s SDCC titled ‘Writing Transgender Characters’. This is a subject pretty darn close to my heart so I implore everyone to read it, whether you’r a creator or reader, and listen to the creators involved.
