    Default Xena Remake: Excited, or not excited?

    Apparently, there's going to be a remake of Xena: Warrior Princess.

    Interested? Apathetic? Discuss!

    No. They haven't announced who is going to be playing Xena yet.

    Excited! They are making the romance of Xena and Gabrielle actually a thing instead of just hinted at. I read that yesterday.

    Surely she will, probably only a cameo though.

    Good that they're very open about the fact that Xena will be lesbian, as opposed to the 'they might be, who knows?' gaybaiting that Star Wars is doing.

    Star Wars isn't gaybaiting. At least, the movie wasn't. I know that fans ship Poe and Finn a lot, and there's that thing Mark Hamill said, but there is nothing queerbaity about the movie on its own.

    I wasn't really talking about the film, but the director, Mark Hamill, the actors poking at it... though, granted, the fans have shipped them and even drawn fan-art.

    I'd be great for there to be a gay romance. I'd just rather tell us straight rather than use weasel words.

    I was like what at first because I clearly remember both of them having male lovers and then I remembered they also kissed twice on the show. I thought that seemed to come out of nowhere when it happened. This is the first time I'm hearing about this reboot.

    I'm apprehensively excited. I loved Xena back in the day, but I know a lot of these reboots/remakes suck to high heaven.
    I swear by the old gods and the new I will never forgive the people involved if they smurf this up.

    Pretty sure this reboot involves the original co-creator (who is also Lucy Lawless' husband). Plus Xena wasn't much good to start with anyway, it was just pure 90s cheese.

    There's been one quote from the new writer they hired alluding to the fact that Xena is gay, people should probably wait for something more concrete than that. It's no different to this 'gaybaiting' one person here is criticising Star Wars for doing.

    Exactly. And who doesn't love cheese?

    Xena is clearly bisexual, IMO. Gabrielle... maybe. I don't think her thingy with her male love interest really went anywhere. But she and Gabrielle were DEFINITELY lovers, no question.

    Xena isn't cheese, it's smurfing GOLD. Easy to mix the two up, they're a similar colour.

    If you forgot Gabrielle got married and despised Callisto (SPOILER)for killing him. I think in the first season in one of the Hercules crossover episodes, she and Hercules' sidekick kissed in that cave.

    I actually did forget that. Shows you how much of an impact that had on me, I guess. They had ZERO chemistry.
