Queer Geek News Roundup: October 22, 2017

  • The great Laura Dern (Jurassic Park, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks) was absent from the most recent Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, but she's given us a new look at her character, Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo. As to Holdo's actual role in the plot... nobody's talking, yet.

  • The CW is developing yet another DC Comics adaptation, but this one looks to be a bit different than their established superhero fare. Project 13 would follow Traci Thirteen, who investigates paranormal phenomena with her father, known as Doctor Thirteen. In current comics, the character is in a same-sex relationship with Natasha Irons (daughter of John Henry Irons, AKA Steel); could this be the first comic-based show with a queer lead?

As always, stay tuned to Geeks OUT for more coverage.
