Mr. Hikaru Sulu, who is played in the modern Star Trek films by actor John Cho is set to be revealed as gay in the next film, Star Trek Beyond. When we next pick up with Mr. Hikaru Sulu in Star Trek Beyond, he is portrayed as a father with a same-sex partner and a daughter. While it's a clear fact, it's also carried out in a casual manner, with no fanfare -- it's just there, which is something Cho appreciated.

"I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out of it," Cho told the Australian newspaper The Herald Sun while he was on a press tour for the movie. "[That] is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one's personal orientations."

The change, also comes as a nod by writer (also stars in film) Simon Pegg and director Justin Lin, to the OG Sulu, Mr. George Takei. Takei played Sulu for many years in the television and film series, and didn't come out as gay until 2005. When asked why it took so long, Takei said it was because as an actor in the 60s, he'd have gotten no work in the industry as an openly declared gay male. 

Star Trek Beyond debuts in theaters July 22, 2016. Check out the latest, final trailer for the movie below:

The statue will be inscribed with the words ‘I’m just a kid from Brooklyn’, a line of dialogue from ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’.

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Captain America, Marvel just announced plans to unveil an enormous bronze statue of Captain America at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Cheers, Cap'n.

TIME reports that the relaunch of Invincible Iron Man features a new, albeit unexpected addition to the Marvel family -- Riri Williams, a 15-year-old who will be taking on the role of Iron Man. 

Her story takes off when she enrolls at MIT (happens to be one badass scientific genius), and builds an Iron Man suit in her dorm. Following the events in Captain America Civil War II, Tony Stark steps down as Iron Man, and Riri Williams steps up to take his place.

Creator, Brian Michael Bendis said the following about the new character during his interview with TIME, “it just seemed that sort of violence inspiring a young hero to rise up and act, and using her science acumen, her natural born abilities that are still raw but so ahead of where even Tony Stark was at that age, was very exciting to me.”

The new Invincible Iron Man makes its debut this fall.
