Read about all of this and more in today’s massive Superhero Bits.
WETA special effects guy Joe Letteri is working on Man of Steel and spoke to The Playlist about how the effects in the movie are being handled. There’s more at the link:
Zack’s going for pretty much everything in-camera as much as he can. I mean, the reason to think about Superman in CGI, you don’t need him full CGI as a character, because he’s basically a full person. But you just don’t want the flying scenes to look like he’s on a wire. So [the question is] how do you use CG to make that happen, and that’s still kind of being played with right now.

Marc Webb talked extensively about The Amazing Spider-Man with Empire Magazine, via Comic Book Movie, here’s just one sample:
It’s not a remake, we’re not making Sam’s movie again. It’s a different universe and a different story with different characters. There are certain mythological obligations people have in any story, but it’s so radically different in terms of tone and what Peter Parker experiences that I’m very comfortable with the movie occupying a different space.

Chris Hemsworth spoke a bit about Thor‘s relationship with Captain America and how the character wants to deal with Loki in The Avengers:
Thor has a different opinion about how this should be taken care of, because it’s his brother. I think it’s heartbreaking, because he feels very responsible for why Loki has spiralled off. He keeps trying to appeal to whatever good was once there.
