y the last man tv show

Michael Green was one of the quiet heroes of 2017, with writing credits on Logan, Murder on the Orient Express, Alien: Covenant, and Blade Runner 2049. Beyond that, he was also an executive producer and showrunner for the audacious first season of Starz’s American Gods. What a year. What a collection of work!

Unfortunately, Green and fellow showrunner Bryan Fuller departed American Gods over behind-the-scenes disputes, but Starz’s loss could be FX’s gain. It seems that this could be the window for Green’s long-gestating small screen adaptation of the science fiction comic Y: The Last Man to get made.

Green Lantern wasn’t the shining beacon for superhero movies that Warner Bros. anticipated when Ryan Reynolds donned the green ring in 2011. Since then, the DC Comics movies have experienced an overhaul with Man of Steel in 2013, and not a word was mentioned of Hal Jordan and his fellow green guardians in the new DC Extended Universe.

But that film wasn’t the last hurrah for the Green Lantern. The name will return not as a single hero but as the Green Lantern Corps, the team of human and aliens chosen by the mystical ring to protect the galaxy. With the announcement of that upcoming DCEU film, the possibilities for multiple Green Lantern heroes expands beyond the hothead pilot Hal Jordan — now fans of the Justice League animated series may even see the Green Lantern they grew up with: John Stewart. And Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green has the perfect casting suggestion for that character.

Y The Last Man TV Show

An adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra‘s sixty-issue comic book series Y: The Last Man has been in the works for years –  first as a movie and then, thankfully, as a TV show, which is a much better fit for the sprawling tale.

But the show has been in the works at FX for a long time now, so what’s up with the delay? According to writer/showrunner Michael Green, you can blame the 2016 presidential election for the long wait.

american gods spinoff

American Gods only premiered on Starz last night, but it has already been met with critical acclaim and buzz. And showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are now setting their eyes on adapting another Neil Gaiman book. Or two.

Fuller and Green are mulling a spin-off of American Gods featuring Orlando Jones‘ African trickster god Anansi, who was the subject of Gaiman’s 2005 follow-up, Anansi Boys. While expanding the world of American Gods — in which the old and new gods walk and war among us — is tempting to Fuller and Green, they’re also circling an even juicier and surreal world to explore: that of Gaiman’s groundbreaking graphic novel The Sandman.
