[The scene] was written very simply and Robert’s like, ‘Can we do more with this?’ So while he was getting made up, I wrote 10 variations. He looked at them and said, ‘Well, a little bit of this. A little bit of that.’ After we shot it, he said, ‘Are you sure you got enough? Because it wasn’t cheap to fly me out here.’
The nine worst dressed superheroes in film history are spotlighted over on Topless Robot. Where did Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine rank? You’ll have to see.
Geoff Johns seems to think a sequel to Green Lantern is still in the cards according to a quote from The Hollywood Reporter:
There is the hope that we will eventually see one….and it will be live-action again – I guarantee.
/Film reader Sean K sent us this Avengers trailer mashup which blends the movie with music from the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes TV show.
The writers of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark spoke at length at New York Comic Con about the challenges of revamping the show and much more. Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter.
Hiddleston also did a great interview with Hitfix talking about a ton of insider Avengers things, including a reveal about Tony Stark’s new digs. Possible minor spoilers there.
The Amazing Spider-Man invaded New York Comic-Con and Movieweb has posted a few pieces of promo art.
The Hollywood Reporter posted the first scene from Green Lantern: The Animated Series.
More Tom Hiddleston. He did yet another revealing interview with Comic Book Resources and discussed a bunch of things including his “relationship” with Erik Selvig, played by Stellan Skarsgard:
This is where I can sense the red dot forming on my forehead. [Laughs] And the Marvel sniper in the corner on the roof over there — he’s got his eye on me. Working with Stellan, he’s amazing and someone I’ve long admired as an actor. I really do think he’s an exceptional, exceptional actor and is really capable of bringing a level of complexity and truth to roles and performances which in another actor’s hands could seem dry or slightly invisible. So I loved working with him — he’s a real actor’s actor, he’s been doing it for so long. He plays the same character in “Avengers,” Erik Selvig, who is a scientist. He’s employed by S.H.I.E.L.D. after his encounters with S.H.I.E.L.D. in “Thor,” to do some work for them. That’s all I can say.
