After 10 days of independent cinema stifled our love of superhero movie news, Superhero Bits is finally back and it’s filled news from today as well as some of the bigger stories from the past week. So, for example, want to see photos of high end Dark Knight Rises merchandise? Is there still a chance a Shazam movie might take place? Has The Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man once again been revealed? When might we see a Nick Fury movie? Which three characters might have massive cameos in The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers and Iron Man 3 respectively? What’s the link between SOPA and The Dark Knight Rises? Read about all this and more in the return of Superhero Bits!
Speaking of The Avengers, there will be a Twitter chat Tuesday with Joss Whedon and a few cast members, culminating in 10 seconds of the 30 second trailer for the film that will play during the Super Bowl. Yes, The Avengers will have a Super Bowl commercial. Read more about the Twitter chat at Superhero Hype.
This image of Batman from The Dark Knight Rises is from a bunch of new merchandise that is beginning to be revealed. Thanks to Superhero Hype, which has a ton of other images.
I have tried to explore Peter Parker as an orphan. Orphans, I feel, are the strongest human beings on the planet. The amount of things they have to deal with in their lives, is amazing. I have tried to capture how Peter copes with the feelings of being an underdog, his confusions and his self-doubt . This, I hope, has brought, a certain empathy and sensitivity to his character that explains how it helps him become the hero that he eventually turns out to be.
Here’s another of those Dark Knight Rises images mentioned above. I just couldn’t resist posting this backpack/lunchbox, simply because he’s got that rope or something. Thanks to ComicBookMovie.
Check out this letter Stan Lee wrote in 1963 talking about Dr. Strange to a fan. Thanks to Blastr.
