It’s time for yet another very attractive person to accept a Mission (or two).

Y: The Last Man is one of the most universally lauded comic book series of the past few decades, and it will soon set to receive a star-studded TV series adaptation at FX, simply titled Y. Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s Eisner Award-winning series is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi parable that centered on Yorick Brown, the last surviving male of the human race after a cataclysmic event wiped out all other living mammals with a Y chromosome. The comic book series was celebrated for its vision of matriarchal society, but in the years since its publication between 2002 and 2008, our understanding of biological sex and gender has evolved. And it seems that FX’s Y is taking that into account.
A casting call is circulating for a transgender character original to the series. As a transgender man, the new character would survive this apocalypse because he was biologically born a woman. While this casting addresses some of the failings that the original series had in regards to diversity and representation, a transgender character joining the Y cast potentially opens the floodgates for a whole new set of issues.

One name that was absent from that long list of performers was Robert Downey Jr., leaving us to assume that the MCU’s highest-paid actor truly was finished playing Tony Stark after his swan song in Avengers: Endgame.
But according to fellow MCU member Jeff Goldblum, that’s not the case. In a new interview, Goldblum revealed that Downey is indeed returning to the MCU once more as part of the What If voice cast. Get the details below. Read More »
