Very rarely do news items elicit a fist pump of delight, but the news that Dan Trachtenberg (The Totally Rad Show, Portal: No Escape) is set to direct New Line Cinema’s upcoming Y: The Last Man feature film made me do just that. 

For those of you not in the know, Y: The Last Man is a seriously dope comic from Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra centering on a dystopian future in which a devastating plague kills every male mammal on Earth, save for one slacker and his pet monkey. Trachtenberg was known as a commercial director and was a co-host of The Totally Rad Showalongside Jeff Cannata and the Nerdist Channel’s Alex Albrecht, but he made major waves when his fan-made Portal: No Escape video went viral.

See? All those videos you make with your friends can pay off. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be directing the Fables movie someday (because how freakin’ sweet would that be?)! Who would you like to see in Y: The Last Man? Quemment below and let us know!
