Queer Geek News Roundup: March 26, 2017

  • The new Power Rangers film features "the first queer big-screen superhero": Trini, the Yellow Ranger, who is questioning her sexuality and may have "girlfriend problems" rather than "boyfriend problems." It doesn't sound terribly substantive (disclaimer: I haven't seen the movie as of this writing), but it's enough to excite David Yost, the openly gay actor who played the original Blue Ranger, and left the show amidst anti-gay harassment.

  • The BBC profiles trans Street Fighter pro Ricki Ortiz, who talks about her struggles with her identity, and finding inclusion in the fighting game community.

  • A new trailer for Justice League shows off Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and the Flash in action, sans Superman—as well as some questionable CGI, and a lot of speed ramping (going from normal to slow-motion in one shot) that I'd thought Zack Snyder had left behind. Even after the dire Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad left a bad taste in many fans' mouths (mine included), a lot of us will still see it... but you can bet we'll snark about it.

Keep an eye on this site for more, as always.
