Is a famous actress making a cameo in The Dark Knight Rises? What happened to a lost Superman story from 2003? Did Gary Oldman reveal anything about the end of The Dark Knight Rises? Who is that masked man swinging through the streets as The Amazing Spider-Man? And what is Olly Moss doing drawing Batman? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Bleeding Cool posted a bunch of pages Dan Fraga posted of a lost Superman story from 2003. It’s lost because the original art work went missing. Pretty cool stuff.
OnLive (via What Culture) released a full, 30 minute playable demo of Batman: Arkham City for people on the fence about whether or not to buy it for their PC.
MTV News asked Gary Oldman about the ending of The Dark Knight Rises and it’s pretty amusing.
In the past weeks, you saw a ton of photos of Bane fighting Batman amidst a huge number of people on the set of The Dark Knight Rises. (Or maybe you didn’t if you avoided our spoiler pages.) Empire (via CBM) finally spoke to Tom Hardy about what that experience was like:
It’s a lot of business out there, isn’t it? It’s very overwhelming. When you’re training in a rehearsal room you go, ‘Okay, I have a contact with seven people. This guy I chin, this one I slip and I punch, this one I pick up and suplex, this guy I kick in the face and this one, he stops a hammer with his head. And then I meet Batman.’ That’s all alright in a rehearsal room, but then you add 1,000 people that are all dressed the same as the seven you’re supposed to hit – ’cause they’re all police officers – and I don’t know where my police officers are. But the stuntmaster’s like, ‘Don’t worry. They will find you.’ So, I apologize to whoever they were! I’m sure we’ll find out in the accient report…
Here’s a Batman doodle popular artist Olly Moss did at a recent convention.
If you’d like one of those limited edition Bane covers for The Dark Knight Rises, Empire has a good deal to grab one.
Geek Tyrant pointed out a quote from Batman author Michael Uslan that Christopher Nolan might have been inspired by this old Detective Comics story.
Comic Book Movie threw up some thoughts on what the 8 year gap between The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises could mean for the franchise.
