Read about all of this and more in today’s spoiler free Superhero Bits.
Late Sunday night, The Dark Knight Rises wrapped principal photography. Spoiler hounds can breath a bit easier, now, because all those set photos will finally stop coming in. Joseph Gordon Levitt posted the above photo on his blog to celebrate.
Comic Book Movie also claims that Desmond Harrington, who plays a police officer on Dexter, was playing at Gotham City police officer in The Dark Knight Rises.
Matthew Modine spoke to Indiewire about why The Dark Knight Rises didn’t shoot at Occupy Wall Street:
The wisdom of Christopher Nolan and his incredible team was that, while it seemed like a good idea to give [the protestors] an opportunity for work, to give them money, it would send a terrible message. At the end of the day, we’re making a movie. What’s happening down there is more important than that. To co-opt what’s happening there and around the country… we didn’t want to trivialize it. It was more important to respect what they’re doing than to do anything that could potentially trivialize the political situation downtown.
Comic Book Movie posted this Canadian cover art for the 2012 release of Justice League: Doom.
Movies.com started another of their cool movie countdown columns and this one gives five reasons why Sony hasn’t been promoting The Amazing Spider-Man as much as some other upcoming superhero movies.
It’s funny, when I go to red carpets people have this mockup photo of what they think I’m going to look like in the movie. But the point is it’s totally inaccurate! [On the mockups], I have a Fu-Man Chu and some kind of SS uniform. I just want to tell everybody out there, that’s not the way it is.
