What did Anne Hathaway have to say about the legacy of Catwoman? Which Doctor Who star dressed up as Batman this week in Hollywood? What superhero is a former Congressman using to attack his political rivals? Marvel is bringing two stars to San Diego Comic Con this year, who are they? And is Ghost Rider really becoming a girl? Read about that all and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Anne Hathaway, aka, Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises, spoke to a Swedish website – briefly – about playing the role. Here’s one of her quotes about playing a role that so many others have played before her:
It makes you work harder, I take a chance not that something may work. But there is a certain satisfaction in that, towards the end of the day did everything.
DC Comics, formerly based in New York, is moving their offices to Burbank, CA. Know what else is in Burbank? Warner Brothers. The Hollywood Reporter has more info on the continued integration.

Though Marvel won’t have a Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con this year, it seems Captain America: The First Avenger stars Hugo Weaving and Chris Evans will be in town, according to NerdReactor. I’d buy tickets to opening night in the Gaslamp if I were you.
