Queer Geek News Roundup: October 15, 2017

  • With just over a month left until the release of Justice League, the new trailer is still playing coy about whether or not the film brings Superman back from the dead (spoiler: of course it does).

  • Justice League isn't the only obscure art film (yes, that's sarcasm) hitting theaters before year's end. A new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi teases a world-weary Luke Skywalker, the final appearance and ultimate fate of Leia, and the possibility of Rey turning to the dark side. Plus: those adorable porgs (above, with our favorite Wookie Chewie).

  • Roswell, the sexy-teen-alien sci-fi/romance series that ran on the WB (and later UPN) for three seasons from 1999-2002, may get a reboot on the CW. The new series would take a topical immigration angle, focusing on a "daughter of undocumented immigrants" who discovers her high school crush is an alien of a different sort.

  • The first trailer for the X-Men spinoff The New Mutants places some fan-favorite mutants (Magik, Moonstar, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, and Sunspot) in a creepy medical institution (quoth the trailer: "This isn't a hospital, it's a haunted house"). It's an odd direction to take, but Fox has thus far had success with its less conventional superhero fare (Deadpool, Logan), so I'm optimistic.

  • The phenomenon that is Netflix's Stranger Things returns in less than two weeks (just in time for Halloween) as a final trailer promises more 80s nostalgia, creepy telekinetic kids, and extradimensional tentacled monstrosities.
