Know a real life super soldier? Why won’t a Green Lantern sequel work? Is Warner Bros. actually working on one? What’s the huge stunt Christopher Nolan is planning for The Dark Knight Rises? How does Kevin Feige describe Iron Man 3? Want an idea of what Anne Hathaway‘s Catwoman costume is going to look like? Find out all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Is this picture from Captain America: The First Avenger of Haley Atwell as Peggy Carter new? Maybe. Either way, she’s super cute and we’re posting it. Thanks to The Daily BLAM.
io9 has a laundry list of reasons (actually, just three) why a sequel to Green Lantern, as it was set up in the first film, would not work. On the off chance you want to see the movie and have yet to, we’ll just direct you there to read the spoiler-filled but completely logical analysis.
ComicBookMovie believes they have a reliable source telling them when Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel will be shooting in Illinois. Below is the email, there’s more info there.
we have a street closure schedule, so we are assuming that is filming time. Main St. will be closed August 6 and August 22-29. Sorry that is all of the info I have right now.
Anne’s outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies,” a source very close to the costume design tells us exclusively. “She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it’s going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumes. She’s going to look more like a robber.” Adds the insider, “But fan boys shouldn’t be worried. This costume is going to be form-fitting enough to make Anne look smoking hot.
Think a friend or family member of yours is a real Super Solider like in Captain America: The First Avenger? There’s a national contest being held by Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins “where people can win prizes by nominating veterans or active U.S. servicepersons who are making a difference where they live or serve.” Read the full press release over on PR Newswire for all the info.
Anne’s preparation for her role as Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, the next Batman installment (currently filming in Pittsburgh), has been more than cosmetic. She has been working out five days a week — rigorous exercise and stunt training followed by an hour and a half of dance. “I’ve always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job I also have to be strong,” she says.
The Wrap has an article called “Too Many Men in Tights? Five Reasons The Superhero Summer Has Been A Bust.” It begins with the above chart which, to be honest, is slightly unfair. Green Lantern came out way later. But you can still see how none of these movies have been a home run.
