We haven’t seen a trailer for Deadpool yet, but with Comic-Con fast approaching, we expect that will change very soon.

This is the first time a movie superhero has literally looked essentially identical to his comic-book counterpart.

Too often in film, sex is portrayed through the eyes of a man. It’s their pleasure the film is concerned with, aided by leering shots of naked women. This encourages murky social ideas about who sex is really for, and instead of considering both parties equally, movies tend to reinforce the retrograde thinking that women don’t actually enjoy sex and that we merely exist for the pleasure of man. Enter Magic Mike XXL — a film that is ultimately preoccupied with the sexual satisfaction of women, even though no one actually has sex in it (on screen, anyway).

San Diego Comic-Con is the center of the geek world, the place where movies and TV and comics and games and toys all converge into one giant melting pot.

However, as Comic-Con has grown, so too have the rumors that the con would depart San Diego for a city with a larger convention center. But it looks like everything is staying put for the time being. Comic-Con organizers and the City of San Diego have reached an agreement that will keep SDCC in the city through at least 2018.
