What does James McAvoy have to say about a sequel to X-Men: First Class? Did Michael Shannon reveal any General Zod details from Man of Steel? Want to hear what Rhys Ifans‘ The Lizard might sound like in The Amazing Spider-Man? Can we finally put the question of Captain America 2‘s timeline to bed? How can you win a trip to the Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance world premiere? Read about this and much more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Next Media Animation has put a twisted spin on The Avengers trailer that must been seen to be believed. Thanks to Movieline for the heads up.
James McAvoy spoke to Total Film about a possible sequel to X-Men First Class. He’s contractually obligated to do it but isn’t sure there’s an idea yet:
I’ve spoken to Matthew [Vaughn] about ideas, but I can’t tell you what they are because they may or may not be the story. One thing I liked about our one was that it was different from the other three films where the X-Men are the good guys, Wolverine’s figuring out who he is and Magneto is the bad guy. This was a completely different thing. Magneto wasn’t a bad guy, we were friends. We’re now set up to go back to the way the other movies are, so we’ve got to try to be cleverer than that.
Rhys Ifans gave MTV a sneak peak of the Lizard voice he used on set while shooting The Amazing Spider-Man. Creepy.
Want to go to the world premiere of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance? Have an artistic streak? Sony has started a contest for fans to design their own Ghost Rider poster and the winner gets all kinds of goodies. Head to Superhero Hype for all the info.
Deviant Artist Rob Duenas has done an impressive and stylistic series of comic book inspired art. Head to his site or Geek Tyrant to see Batman, Superman, Wolverine, the Ninja Turtles and more done in this style.
So much of Captain America’s adventures occur in the present day, so there are a lot of things I’d like to touch on. That said, we did leave the center section of ‘Captain America’ baggy enough to let him have adventures you didn’t see [in the first film]. So, we kind of have enough room to play with [for the sequel]….Still, if he had another adventure entirely set in World War II, the stakes are kind of lessened, because you know he survives and you know what happens to Bucky and you know the Howling Commandos survive long enough to have a toast in a bar.
Then, in an interview with The HD Room, they clarified those statements by saying the film will “primarily” set in modern day.
Captain America: The First Avenger is out on Blu-ray tomorrow. Here’s another special feature from the release, about the costume. Thanks to MTV.
ForeverGeek posted a list of 11 Superhero Movies That Never Escaped Development Hell. All the classics are there. Batman vs. Superman, James Cameron’s Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, etc.
