Has Paul Bettany been asked to return for the film? Did Donald Glover talk about Spider-Man in his new Comedy Central special and what is the best Superman video game of all time? Read about all of this and much more in today’s Superhero Bits.
MTV says the new Superman game for IOS is “the best Superman video game I’ve ever played.”
James McAvoy spoke to Collider about the X-Men First Class sequel and, while not revealing anything, did give some cool insight. Here’s a piece, head there for more:
I’ve heard a little bit about what’s happening. The director has got a fantastic idea for what the story will be. I can’t really tell you what it is because we may or may not make that, but we’ve got to do something intelligent with it. I can’t speak for Michael’s character, but for my character, he’s got some major shit to deal with. He’s just been paralyzed and he’s been betrayed by the person who he’s probably come to care about more than anybody else in the world, and he’s the guy who did it to him….That’s a huge thing that we have to deal with and we need to see that. If we don’t see that, I feel like it would just totally wallpaper over the fact that this guy has been completely physically compromised. That’s an important thing for me. Other than that, I don’t know. We’re still waiting for Fox to greenlight it. I think what they’re doing really well is that they’re not just rushing ahead and making another one because it did well. They are just trying to get a decent story together. If they don’t get a decent story together, then we probably won’t do another one because it can be a stand-alone film. We shouldn’t just make another one because we want to make some money. There needs to be a good script there.
The podcast 24 Panels Per Second contacted us to let us know their new episode focuses on the original Ghost Rider.
A man channeled Batman when he repelled from the top of a shopping mall to the floor to propose to his girlfriend. Thanks to Metro for the story an image.
We agreed that Bruce Wayne is absolutely sincere as Bruce Wayne, and as Batman utterly sincere. But Bruce Wayne, the playboy, is a pure facade, it’s a lie he has, somehow, to control one side of your soul that’s not really under control. In fact, only Alfred knows who he is.
Stan Lee is launching a new, official website. Thanks to Bleeding Cool for the heads up.
Seventeen tons of marijuana was seized in San Diego recently. It’s street name? Captain America.
I was thinking, ‘There’s something wrong here. This is one of the largest films around. I’m not Robert De Niro – I don’t understand why this is being plonked on my lap.’
