Was Jeremy Renner dissatisfied with his role in The Avengers? Who was President Obama‘s favorite actor in The Dark Knight Rises? Has Call Me Maybe made the switch to the superhero genre? Which stunt, captured on the set of The Dark Knight Rises, didn’t make it into the final film? When might The Avengers 2 be released? Where is Iron Man 3 shooting this weekend? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Speaking with the LA Times Hero Complex, Jeremy Renner seemed disappointed he didn’t really get to play good guy Hawkeye in most of The Avengers, but he’s hoping to explore it more:
At the end of the day, 90% of the movie, I’m not the character I signed on to play. I’m literally in there for two minutes, and then all of a sudden… All I could really work on was the physical part of it all, because that didn’t change. That was just the biggest challenge to overcome in playing the guy. Also, we’re pretty much introducing a new superhero character to everyone in a movie where there’s a thousand superheroes. So there’s not a lot of back story or understanding we can really tell about who Clint Barton is, or Hawkeye, and is he working for SHIELD or not. There’s a lot of unanswered questions, even for me. And I was OK with that. At least I was still in the movie. And I was glad for that.
Wesley Freitas directed this Carly Rae Jepsen/Dark Knight Rises mash-up that’s pretty damn clever. Thanks to Unique Daily.
Iron Man 3 filming is still going strong in Wilmington, North Carolina. Friday they’re at the National Gypsum and Monday at the Port of Wilmington. On Location Vacation has specifics.
President Obama would agree with the above thoughts, according to Deadline.
The BBC will make a documentary about the Colorado shootings with the title: The Batman Shootings.
