On Monday, a few pages from the latest issue of the Marvel comic "All New X-Men" leaked online- spoiling something pretty major about a very famous Marvel superhero.

The superhero: Iceman, aka Bobby Drake, aka a character who's been a part of the X-Men since the very first X-Men comic (and played by Shawn Ashmore in most of the "X-Men" films). The surprise: he's gay.

Movie icon Scarlett Johansson and her brother Hunter were born in New York City. Hunter occasionally joins his sister on the red carpet for the various events she attends in Tinsletown and all over the world. He told People of his sis in 2009: "She's set me up on dates. It wasn't with anybody famous. It was with some school friends – all very beautiful, wonderful girls."

For genre fans craving a little blood and guts, nobody delivers the demented better than Director Darren Lynn Bousman.
