Want to see a preview of the DC Comics Robot Chicken special? What does Kevin Feige have to say about the ensemble of The Avengers? How is that movie influencing the current Marvel Comics? Did Batman: Arkham City sell well during its first week? What does the wrap t-shirt for The Dark Knight Rises look like? And why is Batman high-fiving Will Smith sitting on giraffe with an explosion in the background and Gary Coleman on a bear? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
The Hollywood Reporter has a long article on how The Avengers movie trailer is pleasing to both film goers and hardcore comic fans alike. They also have a gallery of images showing how the film has influenced the comics and vice versa.
As any fan of the Marvel team up knows, what happens when Marvel heroes team up? – They fight each other, then they fight together. We did not shy away from that direction….The best Avengers comics are when no-one is the leader. Joss has done a great job of making this a true ensemble picture – Loki and Fury are, if anything, true drivers of the story at points. And Jeremy Renner could steal the movie from everybody with his bow and arrow. We don’t have to make this Iron Man and his amazing friends – Iron Man’s a giant, giant part of the movie and when he comes in, people take notice, but this is an Avengers movie.
Those crazy kids and their social networks. Superheros points us to this funny Batman and Robin comic.
4.6 Million. That’s how many copies of Batman: Arkham City have shipped in the first week. Multiply that by $60 and you’ll see why video games are so lucrative. Read the full press release at Superhero Hype.
