Want to see a possible new poster for The Avengers? How about a tease of high end toys based on the whole team? What are Andrew Garfield, Rhys Ifans and Irrfan Khan saying about The Amazing Spider-Man? If Bruce Wayne built a suit like Iron Man, what would it look like? Was a student humiliated when he got caught wearing Superman underwear? Who would have been cast in an X-Men movie if it got made in the 1990s? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Andrew Garfield spoke to Total Film (via CBM) about the tone of The Amazing Spider-Man:
We haven’t gone for gritty, we’ve gone for grounded. If we try and make Batman, we’ll fail. The new Batman is it’s own thing – and also in terms of tone, Spider-Man is nothing like that character. Spider-Man is witty, Spider-Man is a kid, Spider-Man wants to have fun, he’s a teenager and he needs to go through first love and piss around.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman flying next to a car via The Awesomer.
A Young Justice video game will be released in 2013 called Young Justice: Legacy. Read more at Superhero Hype.
Tobias Kwan‘s interpretation of Batman is striking. Thanks to Geek Art.
I had huge fun with Chris Evans, as Captain America, because super-soldier though he may be, he’s still a man, up against a God who in his own mind is infinitely superior. Then, in the ring with The Hulk, we’ve got this silver tongued, lightening quick mind up against the embodiment of rage..Loki has this mercurial, transformative ability, not just physically but intellectually, so not all the fights are purely physical. Mind games? Maybe..
If you’re in a cosplay kind of mood, and specifically ready to see superheroes, head over to Gamma Squad for a huge gallery.
If you thought San Diego, New York and Chicago cons have all the fun, turns out that Comic Con India will have a major presentation featuring The Avengers and John Carter. Read more at the Hollywood Reporter.
