With the sequel originally announced in April of last year, Sony Pictures (via Exhibitor Relations) has set a Goosebumps 2 release date of January 26, 2018! The first film’s director Rob Letterman (Shark Tale, Monsters vs. Aliens) and screenwriter Darren Lemke (Turbo) will return for Goosebumps 2, with Deborah Forte (The Golden Compass) and Neal H. Moritz (22 Jump Street) also coming back as producers. Jack Black is expected to come back to the fold for more monster mayhem.
The first Goosebumps made $156.7 million on a $58 million budget, and hit #1 on the sales charts when it was released on home video . Since there are 62 books in the original “Goosebumps” series, the filmmakers will have plenty of material to wade through in order to craft a story.
Based on Scholastic’s worldwide best-selling book series, with over 400 million copies in print, Goosebumps starred Jack Black (School of Rock) as “Goosebumps” author R.L. Stine, along with Dylan Minnette (Prisoners), Ryan Lee (Super 8) and Odeya Rush (The Giver). When Zach (Minnette) unwittingly unleashes magical monsters on the town, he must team with his new friends Champ (Lee), Hannah (Rush) and Stine (Black) to send the ghouls back where they came from before it’s too late.
Ace screenwriting team Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes, The People v OJ Simpson) penned the story for the original, with Lemke writing the screenplay.

Almost one year after surprising the comic book world by hinting at the merging of the DC Universe with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s Watchmen world in Geoff Johns’ DC Universe: Rebirth #1, DC is getting ready to start offering details into the mysterious connection for the first time.
Publishing in April as a four-part crossover between Batman and The Flash ongoing series (#’s 21 & 22 of each), The Button will be written by Batman scribe Tom King and penciled by Jason Fabok, along with The Flash writer Joshua Williamson and artist Howard Porter, respectively.
“The two greatest detectives in the DC Universe unite to unravel the mystery behind a certain blood stained smiley face button stuck in the Batcave wall,” reads DC’s official description. “However, what begins as a simple investigation soon turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party – and it’s not who anyone suspects! This is a mystery woven throughout time, and the countdown starts here!”
