Premiering at WonderCon this weekend, MTV Geek has the world premiere of the trailer for Superman vs. The Elite.
The Shiznit has put together the original Avengers. Too funny. There’s some context at the link.
The Los Angeles Times has an article about how Disney is planning to introduce Marvel character into their theme parks.
The team behind Silence! The Musical has created Batman and Robin: The Musical starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze. Great stuff.
Joss Whedon spoke to Collider about the villains in The Avengers:
I will say only this: It is not the Kree or the Skrulls… Those two aliens are Marvel mainstays and have enormous backstories. They have a big life of their own that just could not be contained in a film where I already had seven movie stars… The Skrulls — they can shape change. That’s a whole thing. I’ve already got Loki. He’s got magic. Once you got magic along with your Iron Man and your Black Widow — it’s a real juggling act.
The Joker tries to get through airport security. Not a good idea. Thanks to The Daily What.
A lot of superheroes got their powers because they’re crap scientists. Check out this list at Blastr.
