Welcome to today’s Geekiary News Briefs! Some exciting videos have been released for Riverdale season 3 and Star Wars: Resistance. The launch date of DC Universe and the premiere date of Titans have also been announced. Some interesting things happened in Marvel comic books.

A creepy new trailer for Riverdale season 3 has been released and while I agree this series is not without its problems, I am still looking forward to its return on October 10, 2018. Along with Archie having to deal with jail time, the gang will also be facing a demonic cult. I wonder if the cult storyline will further link this show to the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which is set to premiere on Netflix on October 26, 2018.

I also did a breakdown of the Riverdale season 3 promo. Let’s see if we get more screentime for Kevin, Moose, Cheryl, and Toni.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, A Quiet Place sequel is happening. Penned by John Krasinski, Paramount has set the release date for May 15, 2020. It is unclear if Krasinski will return as director. We also don’t know if the sequel will follow Emily Blunt’s character or a different family. A Quiet Place was able to gross $332.6 million at the global box office against a production budget of around $20 million. So, it will be interesting to see how the sequel does.

Fans waiting to see what DC Universe has to offer won’t have to wait long. The new streaming service will officially launch on September 15, 2018. The live-action Titans series will premiere on DC Universe on October 12, 2018. Being a fan of the Teen Titans I want the upcoming series to do well, but that trailer was a mess!

People at New York Comic Con 2018 will be able to watch the premiere earlier on October 3, hosted by Warner Bros. Television. The first season of Titans will have 12 episodes. New episodes will be released weekly, which is kind of a bummer because I wanted to binge-watch it.

In Marvel comic book related news, Hunt for Wolverine: Dead Ends introduced the mysterious Persephone. She is the one who has captured Logan and tells the X-Men to leave her alone because she will kill youngsters who have the X-gene even before it is activated. We will get to see more of her and Logan in Return of Wolverine Issue 1.

A lot of romance occurred in Runaways Issue 12. Gert and Victor shared a kiss and so did Nico and Karolina. There are certain fans saying making Nico and Karolina hook up was forced writing. All I have to say about such criticism is that it is your problem if you thought Nico was straight the moment she refused Karolina’s advances years ago. The queer subtext concerning Nico has always been there and it is a good thing the series decided to explore it rather than queerbait.

Matt Rosenberg concluded his New Mutants: Dead Souls run on a very shocking turn of events! Not only did the sixth issue give us Shatterstar in an apron (I can’t wait to read his upcoming solo series), but it left me wanting more. I don’t know about you, but the New Mutants team always work for me when there is creepy stuff involved. The current mini-series is one of the best comic book stories I have read in 2018 and I recommend you pick it up!

With an all-star cast of Mark Hamill, Noah Schnapp (Stranger Things), and Vanessa Williams, The Legend of Hallowaiian is an action-packed family fun animated film which will release exclusively to DIRECTV on September 20th. The film is produced by Fresh Baked Films’ Erick Dickens and Scoutabout Entertainment’s Page Feldman.

The film is set in the beautiful Hawaiian Islands during a spooky Halloween evening. After releasing a mythical monster upon the Hawaiian Islands, a group of three young friends must use local legends to restore peace to their home.

Given its family-friendly nature, King’s Hawaiian will be leveraging the brand equity from the film to promote movie-themed recipes, host a Hallowaiian sweepstakes online and plan events across the country to bring the film to life.

Here’s the trailer!

A new video showcasing Team Fireball from the upcoming Star Wars: Resistance animated series has been released.

I can’t help but laugh at this! Amazing!
