Queer Geek News Roundup: April 8, 2018

  • Brian K. Vaughn's acclaimed comic Y: The Last Man, which follows the adventures of the last male on earth after a plague kills all the world's other men, spent years in development as a film that ultimately went nowhere. Now, it may finally get a screen adaptation, as FX has ordered a pilot.

  • The CW has renewed all five of its DC superhero shows, as well as fellow comic adaption Riverdale, the long-running Supernatural, and the little-seen but superlative musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (returning for a fourth and final season).

  • 1984's The Last Starfighter, about a small-town teenager whose video game skills lead to his recruitment into an interstellar battle, is potentially getting a remake from the co-writer of Rogue One.

  • Deadpool 2 marketing for a cause: [donate to cancer prevention charity Fuck Cancer for a chance to win a pink Deadpool suit].(https://www.omaze.com/experiences/Deadpool-Suit?ref=deadpool).

  • Aliens, 70s British punk rock, teen romance, and a bewigged Nicole Kidman collide in the new trailer for Hedwig and the Angry Inch director John Cameron Mitchell's How to Talk to Girls at Parties, based on the short story by Neil Gaiman.
