After a few days off thanks to Comic-Con, Superhero Bits is back and we’ve got a lot of catching up to do over the next week or two. For now though, we’ll answer some of the following questions. What was Robert Downey Dr. doing in front of big crowds at Comic-Con? What is going on with negative reviews of The Dark Knight Rises? Might we see Gwyneth Paltrow as a superhero in Iron Man 3? How much is the first appearance of Thanos going for now? Is The Dark Knight Rises on track to beat The Avengers opening weekend record? Which character did Christopher Nolan say deserves their own spin-off? And who was Tom Hardy‘s inspiration for the voice of Bane? Read about all of this and more in the return of Superhero Bits.
