Hollywood’s been hopping, and we round up the geek showbiz news here.

Warner Bros. has released a poster and title sequence (below) and some additional info for Blade Runner: Black Lotus, a new anime series from Alcon Entertainment for Crunchyroll and Adult Swim.  The series will be released later this year; it was first announced back in 2018 (see "’Blade Runner’ Anime Series").  The story will follow a young woman seeking revenge while uncovering her past.

HBO Max has ordered ten episodes of young adult animated spinoff series Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake, the streamer announced.  HBO Max is releasing Adventure Time: Distant Lands, four one-hour specials, over two years (see "’Adventure Time’ Trailer").  Adam Muto, showrunner for Adventure Time and the Distant Lands specials will serve as showrunner and executive producer of the new series.

Anthony Mackie will star in the fourth Captain America film, according to Deadline.  Mackie played The Falcon in six Marvel films, and in the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (see "’Falcon and Winter Soldier’").

Picturestart and Lionsgate Television have acquired rights to adapt the upcoming YA graphic novel Squad, by Maggie Tokuda-Hall and Lisa Sterle, after an eight-way bidding war, according to The Hollywood Reporter.  The graphic novel, which tells a story of teen girl werewolves, will be released under HarperCollins imprint Greenwillow Books on October 5. 

The long-gestating Spawn feature, based on the Todd McFarlane Image Comics series, is starting over with a new writer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.  Brian Tucker, who wrote the 2013 thriller Broken City, will write the script.  Blumhouse Productions is behind the feature.  The last time we heard anything about this project, a new effects guru had joined the production, which had Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner attached (see "’Spawn’ Adds A-List FX Guru").  With a new script and schedule, it’s unclear how much of the old package will hold together.

Legendary has signed Shinsuke Sato as director for a live-action feature based on hit VIZ Media manga series My Hero Academia, according to Deadline.  Sato has an extensive portfolio of manga adaptations, including a Death Note feature and series, and features tied to Bleach, Inuyashiki, and I Am a Hero.
