A few stories to wrap the comic-con revelations.
X-Files (which is the 2nd best sci-fi show of all time) filmed a sex scene between Mulder and Scully. According to Gillian Anderson: “We shot it. It’s somewhere.” Also. The X-Files team are all up for someday potentially possibly making another X-Files film. Let’s hope that’s a lot more Fight the Future, and a lot less I Want to Believe.
On the Whedon front: Avengers 2 will be titled The Age of Ultron, which is pretty much awesome, and Agent Coulson is alive for S.H.I.E.L.D. but presumably this fact will not be of concern in the feature sequel.
Hopefully, at some point, Whedon lets us know how Phil’s clock still ticks.
On Ender’s Game: Harrison Ford addressed the controversy surrounding Orson Scott Card’s anti-gay crusade and the adaption of Card’s most famous novel. Said Mr. Ford:“I think none of Mr. Card’s concerns regarding the issue of gay marriage are part of the thematics of this film. He has written something that is of value to us all to consider our moral responsibilities. I think his views outside of those that we deal with in this film are not an issue for me to deal with, so I have really no opinion on that issue. I am aware of his statements admitting that the question of gay marriage is a battle that he lost, and he admits that he lost it.”
Also: “I think we all know that we’ve all won, that humanity has won. And I think that’s the end of the story.” Beautifully spoken by an old pro. Well said sir.

Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man will likely be funny/crazy and that’s pretty much what we should expect of a feature adaptation of Ant-Man from Edgar Wright.
Finally, on Comic-Con (NSFW):
