Queer Geek News Roundup: April 30, 2017

  • DC Entertainment will launch a digital streaming service in 2018, featuring a live-action Titans series from Greg Berlanti (producer of the CW's various DC superhero series), as well as the previously announced third season of Young Justice. I expect that Titans will feature some of the queer characters who have been part of the team in recent years, including Bunker and Aqualad. That said, in a world with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Seeso, CBS All Access, and more, is there really a strong appetite for yet another streaming service?

  • Details for May's Twin Peaks revival on Showtime remain scarce, but a new teaser offers a look at some of the show's familiar locales 25 years later.

The relationship between this divided landscape and the most recent Presidential election is not lost on her. At the coffee shop, as a barista cleared our plates, we talked about how the stakes of every identity-politics debate feel heightened since November—and also about new alliances that seem to be forming in the election’s wake. Wilson spoke with some astonishment about the fact that she could include a gay secondary character in “Ms. Marvel”—the blond, popular Zoe—and still have mothers and daughters show up to her readings in hijabs. “It’s funny. Those right-wing bloggers who said my work was part of some socialist-Muslim-homosexual attack on American values, they really created the thing they feared. There wasn’t a socialist-Muslim-homosexual alliance before, but there sure as fuck is one now, and I love it.”

As always, watch Geeks OUT for more.
