Elijah Wood Seeks 'Y: The Last Man' Role

Has Y: The Last Man found its Yorrick?

At New York Comic Con this weekend, Dirk Gently star Elijah Wood was asked the most important question in the world by website ScreenRant: which comic book character would he like to play in a movie?

"Y: The Last Man," Wood replied, spawning a thousand clickbait article across the comics blogosphere. "When is that going to get made? It's such a great comic series. Amazing."

Amazing indeed. Even more amazing though would be if the project actually makes it to screens. A planned Y: the Last Man movie was in development for so long that the rights actually reverted back to creators Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra back in 2014.

Since then, a TV series has supposedly been in development, but hey, we'll believe it when we see some actual evidence. Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on you too. We never accept any blame.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
