What is Kick-Ass creator John Romita Jr. currently doing for Kick-Ass 2? Want to see some gorgeous concept art from The Dark Knight Rises video game? Does Hugh Jackman have something on his face in The Wolverine? Should The Dark Knight Rises campaign for an Oscar? Want to hear Christopher Nolan talk about Man of Steel? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
As far as I know, the Hit-Girl comic is actually the beginning of the film. Kick-Ass 2 is the second half of the film. It’s an interesting thing that occurred. The filming got pushed back due to contracts and the actors not being ready, so it worked out well that way [in allowing more time to get the comics finished]. So as soon as Mark [Millar] and Jeff Wadlow had discussed what they wanted to do, we got to the point where the Hit-Girl story would be the beginning of the film. Now it’s just up to me to get things done as quickly as possible. The director has Mark’s synopsis already with pretty good detail – not a script per se – but a detailed synopsis so he knows what’s going to happen. There’s a screenplay already, so having the series done far enough in advance for the director to use some of it, all of it, none of it, but for him to have a choice, is the ultimate goal and I’m just going to try and get the Hit-Girl series done as soon as possible.

I don’t want to give too much away. But I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed. Alan Taylor’s vision of Thor 2 is utterly brilliant. The journey continues in the most epic dimension and proportion imaginable. It’s very, very exciting.
