Queer Geek News Roundup: January 14, 2018

Hulu’s *Runaways ended its first season just as we started to get some proper queer romance, so it’s good to hear that the network has already picked up another season.

  • Aquaman is the only DC Extended Universe film coming out this year, but it’s not the only DC superhero film we’re getting: Cartoon Network’s very popular Teen Titans GO! heads to the big screen this summer with Teen Titans GO! To The Movies. Expect lots of fourth-wall breaking and fart jokes, if that trailer is anything to go by.

  • Netflix offers up a full trailer for Altered Carbon, their ambitious sex-and-violence-heavy futuristic detective thriller.

  • In Strong Female Characters news, Marvel may finally be moving forward with a solo film for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, as the studio has hired a screenwriter for the project. This would be Marvel’s second female-led project (that we know of) following next year’s Captain Marvel.

  • DC ended the week by announcing The Other History of the DC Universe, a "literary comics miniseries" from writer John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) focusing on women and minority characters, including queer heroes Renee Montoya and Extraño (last seen in the Midnighter and Apollo miniseries, having come a long way from his dubious origins.
