The might be my favorite thing ever. IO9 points out a concept by Draw2D2 in which Marvel characters and A Christmas Story are put together. You won’t shoot your eye out if you head to those links to see a bunch of other, equally hilarious, images.
If you know about Bane, you know what likely happens in The Dark Knight Rises and Bleeding Cool says they’ve confirmed it. Spoilers abound.
/Film reader Ashley L is working on a superhero film called Last Flight of the Firefly and needs your help. Head to the IndieGogo page to read more about the concept, which you get a glimpse of above.
My impression what Spider-Man could be is very different from what Sam [Raimi] did or what Sam wanted to do. I think the reason he directed that movie was because he wanted to do the Marvel comic superhero. I was never interested in the genesis story. I couldn’t get past a guy getting bit by a red and blue spider. It was just a problem… It was not something that I felt I could do straight-faced. I wanted to start with Gwen Stacy and the Green Goblin, and I wanted to kill Gwen Stacy.
The title sequence of the movie that I was going to do was going to be a ten minute — basically a music video, an opera, which was going to be the one shot that took you through the entire Peter Parker [backstory]. Bit by a radio active spider, the death of Uncle Ben, the loss of Mary Jane, and [then the movie] was going to begin with Peter meeting Gwen Stacy. It was a very different thing, it wasn’t the teenager story. It was much more of the guy who’s settled into being a freak.
Here’s a photo of Stan Lee on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man with producer Avi Arad.
FilmInk (via CBM) has a bunch of Avengers related quotes from Jeremy Renner, Joss Whedon and this one from Scarlet Johannson about Black Widow’s relationship with Hawkeye:
Our characters have a long history. They’ve fought together for a long time in a lot of battles in many different countries. We’re the two members of this swinging group who are skilled warriors – we have no superpowers. Black Widow is definitely one of the team though. She’s not in the cast simply to be a romantic fall or eye candy. She’s there to fight, so I never felt like I was the only girl. We all have out various skills and it feels equal.
Merchandise for The Dark Knight Rises has begun popping up for pre-order on Amazon, via CBM.
Comic Book Movie found some box art for upcoming Avengers merch, here’s the Heroclix.
This is super weird. CBM has found a rumor on the IMDB about the post-credit scene in The Avengers. It’s so out there, it couldn’t possibly be right. How would that fit in?
