A first, actual glimpse at the Ender’s Game movie is finally here. The film looks to be a visual feast, and the actual zero-gravity game looks well done. We’ll all have to hold out until November to see if it has the heart of the novel.
It’s also questionable if Tumblr and other elements will boycott Ender’s Game. Adventures of Superman, an online only comic still set to be released by DC, had several people opting to boycott it; it was enough to drive the artist to quit due to the controversy. The boycott had to do with Orson Scott Card’s anti-gay marriage views, and his lobbying to enforce those views.
Neither Ender’s Game nor his Superman work contain those views. Ender’s Game is set to release in November 2013.
