Want to see the new IMAX commercial for The Avengers? How about a bunch of book covers for The Dark Knight Rises? What does Darth Vader look like dressed at Batman? Has Stan Lee learned about his Iron Man 3 cameo yet? Does Batman‘s Batarang really work? What’s the latest update on the Incredible Hulk TV show? How many Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles did it take to set a Guinness World Record? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
No new footage, but this Avengers IMAX commercial is still exciting. Thanks to Marvel.
Superhero Hype posted a bunch of information on the Avengers colognes and perfumes that are about to hit shelves.
This promo image for Sony’s NEX camera reveals a new look at The Amazing Spider-Man, via Comic Book Movie. It’s not from the movie, persay, just an idea of what the camera can do.
This custom action figure by Mint Condition Customs, Darth Knight, sold for $64. Seems like a steal. Head to Geekologie for more images.
Happy Place (via NPR Tumblr) did a very funny article featuring “17 comic book covers were Superman is a complete sociopath.” Not to outdo them, iO9 has an article called 10 Times Batman Acted Like An Absolute Lunatic.
Bleeding Cool now not only has the ComiXology iPad app updated to HD, but the Marvel app has now too. There’s more at the site.
Stan Lee spoke to Collider about what it’s like doing cameos on the big Marvel movies, such as the upcoming Iron Man 3:
I haven’t done that cameo yet. It’s almost scary ‘cause they just give me a date. They’ll say, “Stan, come over next Thursday for your cameo,” but they don’t tell me what it is. So, I show up and they say, “Go to wardrobe.” In wardrobe, they say, “We want to get you a white shirt and a green sweater and a black zippered jacket,” and I’ll say, “Don’t bother, I’m wearing one.” And then, they say, “But, you can’t wear yours!,” and they look around and get me the exact same thing, but I’m not allowed to wear my own. And I still don’t know what my role will be. I go on the set and one minute before we’re gonna shoot, the director says, “Okay, Stan, this is what I want you to do.” So, I don’t know what is expected of me, until I get there, but of course, I do it magnificently.
Promoting their new DC Nation series on Cartoon Network, they tested out if a Batarang really could work. And it does…in destroying stuff. Am I the only one who thought the Batarang was supposed to return like a boomarang, hence the “arang?” Thanks to Daily Motion (via Nerd Bastards) for the heads up.
