What’s the early buzz on The Avengers? Does Matthew Goode want to make a Watchmen prequel movie? Where is the common ground between Chronicle and a famous 80s TV show? Which controversial topic is Archie Comics tackling next? Want to see a Batman-centric clip from Justice League: Doom? Read all this and much more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Comic Book Movie posted the above, Batman-centric, clip from Justice League: Doom.
Quint at Ain’t It Cool News writes the following on the early buzz concerning The Avengers:
Word ’round the campfire is Marvel considers The Avengers to be their best outing yet. I’ve talked to some cynics in the group who weren’t sure it was going to come together and they’re all doing their mea culpas now. They say it has the heart, the action, the humor and the suspense a movie like The Avengers should have. The only criticisms I’ve heard is that Whedon’s eye isn’t as cinematic as it should be, but that the rest of the movie is so good that you accept it.
Marvel has officially released the hi-res images of the two new Avengers images we ran over the past two days. This one is wallpaper worthy. Head to the link for the hi-res.
Comic Book Movie points out the official German Facebook page for The Avengers says a new trailer will be out next week. However, odds are it’s just some kind of rehash of the American Super Bowl spot. In German.
Oddly enough, this is not the first time we’ve run a photo of someone who created medieval armor based on Batman but this probably trumps them all. Props to Prince Armory (via IO9). Head there to see more photos.
After seeing Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, were you disappointed the film didn’t go for the hard-R? There was a treatment and sequel idea that would’ve done just that, from the team behind Drive Angry, but Marvel rejected it. Now you can read it. It’s called Ghost Rider 2: Riders on the Storm and featured Johnny Blaze going to Europe searching for the skulls of previous riders. Head to Wendago thanks to Comic Book Movie.
