Sony Pictures Entertainment has signed an agreement with US-based comic book convention producers "Wizard World" to option and develop intellectual properties from creators attending coast-to-coast "Wizard World" conventions:
"We are always looking for new ways to find that next generation," said Jonathan Kadin, Sony's executive vice president. "This deal gives us unique access to the incredible talent that 'Wizard World' can bring to the table, putting us in a prime position to find the stories that break through the clutter..."
"Wizard World" currently produces nine conventions across the US, including Portland, Chicago and Philadelphia, with plans to expand to Austin, Biloxi and Springfield.
In Canada, Hobbystar Marketing, a local sports and entertainment agency behind 'Toronto Comicon' and 'Fan Expo', filed a lawsuit against Wizard World Inc. in 2012, claiming a misuse of its 'Comicon' trademark name, souring "Wizard World" from staging further conventions in Canada, to the regret of many comic book fans...

The world-wide total of "Ant-Man" was $519,311,965.
"I was raised by two superheroes," said Lilly about 'Hope Van Dyne' aka 'The Wasp', "so, I'm a pretty screwed up human being.
"I am also fairly capable, strong, and kick-ass, which is wonderful to play, but the most fun to play is just how messed up she was from being raised by two superheroes.
"And the clear message sent by name is that I'm not a big fan of my father and so I took my mother's name."
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, 'The Wasp' debuted in Marvel Comics' "Tales to Astonish' #44 (June 1963), with the ability to shrink to a height of several centimeters...
...grow to giant size and fly by means of membranous wings :
"...'Janet Van Dyne' was a shallow, self-centered, heiress and debutante, daughter of wealthy scientist 'Vernon Van Dyne'. During an experiment an alien monster was unleashed from an alternate dimension and Dr. Van Dyne was killed.
"Her father's associate, 'Dr. Henry 'Hank' Pym', had created a substance called 'Pym' particles, which allowed the user to grow or shrink in size, and had become the superhero 'Ant-Man'.
"When Janet's father died, she convinced Pym to help her. He gave her a supply of Pym particles and subjected her to a biochemical procedure which granted her the ability, upon shrinking less than 4 inches tall, to grow wings,and fire blasts of energy, which she called her 'wasp's stings'.
"As Ant-Man and 'The Wasp', they defeated the monster, sent it to its own dimension, and had several more adventures together. Janet became Pym's partner and fell in love with him before their first adventure.
"Soon after, the newly-created superhero team, Janet dubbed the 'Avengers', was formed.
"Hank and Janet were among its founding members. Several years later, she would be elected leader of the team..."

Sneak Peek "Gone Girl" actress Emily Ratajkowski in a new Spring/Summer campaign for the denim fashion brand "DL1961":
"I've gotten over the fact I've got no privacy," said Ratajkowski. "This is not the right way to think, politically - that you 'have nothing to hide'...
"...but I always hated when I was growing up how people would really freak out about paparazzi following them.
"It's like, 'Well that's the job and the profession that you're in.'
"When people google my name they see this bikini sex-symbol kind of thing and they're scared to cast as anything but that. So I'm taking a long and I hope, high road of basically wanting parts that I'm most excited about, which can be really annoying."
