Want to watch Hugh Jackman (sort of) talk about X-Men: Days of Future Past in multiple interviews? Who says Robert Rodriguez is “taking it to the next level” with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For? How is it possible that 2013’s Man of Steel is one of the most disappointing films of 2012? Which does Kevin Smith prefer, The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Gizmodo has a particularly good roundup of “nerdy gifts for comic book fans.”
Even though it’s not out yet, Yahoo has listed Man of Steel as one of the most dissapointing films of 2012 simply because of set photos like the one above.
Newsarama lists the ten least superior Spider-Man villains.
Robert [Rodriguez, director] is really taking it to the next level. In terms of technology, there’s so much more for him to play with. Robert is such a creative man. His work process is so fascinating to me. There’s not much time to prep. You get up there and he says do it and you just do it. It’s by the far the most physical role I’ve ever done. I’m in action hero heaven!
Want more Hugh Jackman talking X-Men: Days of Future Past but saying really nothing? MTV has the ticket.
Here are ten ways to fix some of the problems in The Dark Knight Rises via What Culture.
Speaking to The Playlist, Kevin Smith talked a bunch about The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, and why he likes the latter more. Here’s a excerpt:
I’ve now watched ‘Avengers’ about eight times, twice on a plane back-to-back. It just keeps giving. That’s 10,000 across the board! Whedon in the driver’s seat, 70-80 years of Marvel, and the charm fucking factor of Robert Downey Jr. It runs like a golden machine. I never imagined that I would love ‘Avengers’ more than ‘Dark Knight Rises.’ Not only would I have never imagined that ‘Dark Knight’ would underperform (based on other mitigating factors of course). But I would have never thought ‘Avengers’ would make more than ‘Dark Knight Rises.’ But I never would have thought I would have liked ‘Avengers’ more than ‘Dark Knight Rises’ but I really did like ‘Avengers’ more. And I’ve watched them an equal amount of times. ‘Avengers,’ I’m not going to say it’s the better movie, but it puts a smile on your face. It’s magical cinema.
