Okay, so we’re late on this — but how great is Benedict Cumberbatch’s Chewbacca impression, as well as Harrison Ford’s stunned reaction?

I am distressed by Orson’s position on gay marriage. I hold the opposite view. But I loved the book. … Would I prefer to be doing a movie without controversy? Yes, but I’m not in the least distressed that we are having this conversation. It is a very important conversation. It’s just odd that our film, which is all about tolerance, has to be used to counter of the author.

Ender’s Game director Gavin Hood gets honest at his film’s premiere.

A question for the Ender’s Game marketing team: Why so little Ender in the trailers?

It’s hard to know where to begin to dismantle the smugness and intellectual dishonesty in Orson Scott Card’s words. His assertion that gay rights are now “moot” in a country in which 37 states still consider my marriage unworthy of recognition is weak enough, but I’d rather move on to his self-serving appropriation of “tolerance.” No group of people is required to tolerate those who would oppress them, but beyond that, Card is using calm and temperate language to disguise the extremity of his position. He’s not simply against marriage equality; as recently as 2008, he publicly called for straight married Americans to unite in an effort to “destroy” their “mortal enemy,” by which he meant a revolutionary overthrow of any U.S. government led by “dictator-judges” who support same-sex marriage. He’s an off-the-spectrum hatemonger cloaking himself as a voice of principled opposition, and he richly deserves to be shunned.

Mark Harris writes eloquently about Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game, boycotts, and gay Spider-Man. Read all about it!

This week in EW: COMIC-COOOOOON!!! Plus three additional bonus covers featuring Ender’s Game, the upcoming remake of Carrie, and BBC America’s Orphan Blackclick through to see them all.

Ender’s Game is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984.

With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the gay marriage issue becomes moot. The Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution will, sooner or later, give legal force in every state to any marriage contract recognized by any other state.

Now it will be interesting to see whether the victorious proponents of gay marriage will show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute.

Orson Scott Card’s response to those who want to boycott the upcoming film adaptation of Ender’s Game, exclusively on EW.com.

The best-selling author has come under fire for his stance on same-sex marriage: In 2009, he joined the board of the National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex unions. That year, he also wrote a piece in Mormon Times that railed against “dictator-judges” and argued, “Married people attempting to raise children with the hope that they, in turn, will be reproductively successful, have every reason to oppose the normalization of homosexual unions.”

What’s your reaction to the statement?

Half-Maori war hero Mazer Rackham has saved Earth once — and in Ender’s Game, he may have to do it again.

Get a first look at Ben Kingsley’s enigmatic, almost mythical character on our site.

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… anti-gay activist Orson Scott Card, whose views have stoked enough controversy to get an illustrator to leave Card’s upcoming Superman comic.

Here’s the second official image from the upcoming film adaptation of Ender’s Game, featuring Asa Butterfield as Ender and Hailee Steinfeld as Petra, his companion at Battle School.

The photo’s background also contains a gem for super-fans — the scoreboard, which displays daily rankings of all Battle School recruits, looks to be broadcasting a battle between Rat Army and Asp Army, in what appears to be a spherical or circular Battle Room.
