Fare thee well, Game of Thrones, you were, indeed, a TV show many people watched. But don’t worry — just like you can still watch Young Sheldon even though Big Bang Theory has ended, Game of Thrones prequel series are already in the works.

Swamp Thing continues to be extremely hornt.

The trailer for Ruby Rose’s Batwoman is here and it reveals that Meagan Tandy (Braedon from Teen Wolf!!) is playing her love interest! Looks like at least a partial adaptation of Batwoman: Elegy (from Greg Rucka & JH Williams III), but I’m interested to see what’s been changed and updated!
RPattz is on deck as the potential new Batman, which makes a lot of sense since Bruce Wayne is basically Christian Grey, a character based on the sparkling Edward from Twilight. The real question is, will he fuck? I also hope this increases my chances of seeing High Life in a theatre. [io9]

I just hope Sophie Turner is thriving right now.
Vagrant Queen, a Vault comic by creators Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim) and Jason Smith, has been optioned by SyFy for a mini-series with showrunner Jem Garrard (who’s directed episodes of Canadian trans-centric comedy The Switch, Disney XD’s Mech-X4, and You Me Her). Writers for the series are Mika Collins (Deep Six) and comic writer Mariko Tamaki (Hulk, Skim). Actress Adriyan Rae is to star as the titular queen and rarely has a casting looked quite so much as the comic art as this. [Deadline]
Our show is very much still alive at this moment! We’re all still under contract, and actively trying to find a new place to keep the show going! Fan demand is really what has the power to push us over the edge right now, so please be loud! It’s time to #SaveTheTick! https://t.co/zRvKDwxOzP

In bandwagon news, producer Steven Paul’s (Ghost in the Shell, Pottersville) SP Media Group has signed a first-look deal with Paramount regarding Atlas Comics, which it now owns a majority stake in. Currently owned principally by Jason Goodman, grandson of Marvel Comics founder Martin Goodman. I guess the plan is to make some superhero movies but there’s not much else beyond that. [Variety]
Napoleon Dynamite is returning for a sequel, but that sequel is a comic book from IDW and creators Carlos Guzman-Verdugo, Alejandro Verdugo, and Jorge Monlongo. [THR]
Two GoT articles I liked for y’all: first, WWACer Gretchen Smail goes deep into why fans had such disparate reactions to Dany’s fast descent into tyrant-dom. [Bustle]
Second: Zeynep Tufekci analyzes how the storytelling in Game of Thrones changed from sociological to psychological. [Scientific American]

GAY RAT WEDDING in the children’s cartoon Arthur was deemed too hot for Alabama Public Television, because a parent might then have to explain that the rat is now going to hell, I guess. [IndieWire]
