Head over to EmpireOnline to vote for which cover you want them to use for the big Dark Knight Rises exclusive. The more you vote, the more that’s revealed. Bane is currently beating Batman’s ass.
Comic Book Movie has some new set photos of The Amazing Spider-Man reshoots.
Joss Whedon did an awesome, long interview with Yahoo Movies. It’s not particularly revealing but has a lot of interesting insight into each member of The Avengers. For example, here’s Whedon talking about working with Mark Ruffalo. Head there to read about each other character:
Yeah, he and I did the most character work of anyone, because we really were starting fresh, but we were starting with something that had been embodied several times. And both of us agreed upfront that the template for who we wanted this guy to be in his life was Bill Bixby, the TV [show character] who was busy helping other people. That was more interesting to us than the Banner in the first two movies who was always fixated on curing himself. We spent a lot of time talking about what makes us Hulk out, the nature of anger, how it feels. We even fought some. I mean literally we actually got some pads out and did some tussling. Just to talk about the physicality, and also the physicality of somebody who has to control this thing, and the way he moves in space and the way he relates to the people and the objects around him. It was extremely fun. What we found was that he could be very bumbling and kind of awkward, but at the same time very graceful and in this almost transcendent control of himself.
Super was one of the most underrated movies of this year and Nerdcore posted this bad ass German cover of the Blu-ray.
The team at What Culture are feeling particularly venomous today as they list not five, not ten, but FIFTY reasons why Green Lantern sucked.
Yesterday’s Rogue has some hot, ass kicking, cosplay competition with Crystal Graziano‘s Black Widow. Photos by Mike Rollerson from Geeks are Sexy.
Batman: Arkham City was nominated for 10 Spike Video Game Awards, trailing only Portal 2. Other major nominees included The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception and other games that came out this week. Thanks to MTV.
Teefury is superhero-themed today. And clever to boot.
A few weeks back we wrote that Sony gave up some of the merchandising rights for The Amazing Spider-Man. Turns out they ended up at Disney, which also owns Marvel. The plot thickens over at Comic Book Movie.
Batman stamps by Deviant Artist koinogenki. Nuff said.
