Queer Geek News Roundup: January 29, 2017

  • In less cheery news regarding The Flash, the big-screen version of the character keeps hitting a few more speedbumps. He'll still be in Justice League later this year, but his solo film has lost not one but two directors to "creative differences" over the past year. It still has no director, and now the script is getting what Hollywood calls a "page-one rewrite", a new draft from a new screenwriter. Hopefully, the movie (starring self-described queer actor Ezra Miller) turns out well, but this sort of behind-the-scenes turmoil doesn't reflect a strong direction on the studio's part.

  • Millie Bobby Brown, who became America's 1980s psychic-child sweetheart on Stranger Things, will star in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the sequel to the 2014 film. No details on her character yet, but we're guessing she befriends/commands/has a psychic connection with Godzilla and/or other monsters, or something like that.

As always, watch here for more. Especially on that Flash/Supergirl musical.
