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 theater chain’s VP of operations, Walter Eichinger released the following statement in response to the backlash, to the East Bay Times:

Playing that trailer was a one-time honest mistake by a theater manager moving screens around in effort to accommodate several large last-minute groups wanting to see Dory,”

Here's the greenband trailer for 'Sausage Party'. Let's hope the theater didn't play the red band.

In an interview with GQ, when asked about his take on the potential for a Captain America and Winter Soldier romance, Sebastian Stan said,

"Look, man, I think it’s great. Movies are for people to relate to in whatever way they want. No one here is ever going to point a finger and say what’s right and wrong. For me, it’s like, Awww. It’s cute, it’s great. If someone takes the time to think about that, that's great. I don’t think of the character that way, though. But there’s no right or wrong answer."

The Exec. Producer for Justice League, Deborah Snyder confirmed that Steppenwolf will be the main villain in Justice League, though the final casting for the role hasn't been decided just yet.



Steppenwolf is Darkseid's uncle, and also one of his most valued lieutenants. Steppenwolf's been killed and brought back to life multiple times, with the first and most memorable time being after he assassinated Izaya, the Highfather of New Genesis. 

Heggra, Steppenwolf's sister was Darkseid's mother, until Darkseid went on to kill her. Steppenwolf's basically known as the undisputed military mind behind Darkseid's army of Parademons.

Who should play Steppenwolf? Check out the deleted scene from Batman v Superman, which shows us our first glimpse of the villain in action, below:
