What will The Avengers presence at San Diego Comic Con be? Would you like to read a plot synopsis of Man of Steel? See some set photos? Curious to which part of Chris Evans‘ body Hayley Atwell loved to grab on the Captain America: The First Avenger set? Want to know if the script for R.I.P.D. is any good? And how would you like to see a bunch of scantily clad girls inspired by Marvel? All that and more are in today’s Superhero Bits!
This video of the Ironettes, the rockettes but dressed as Iron Man as seen in Iron Man 2, is from a recent convention in France. Many thanks to Geekologie for this video which very much speaks for itself.
First Showing is running several rumored details on what Marvel has planned for The Avengers at Comic Con. No Hall H presentation, unfortunately, but apparently S.H.I.E.L.D. will be all over the show floor with possible sets, security guards, and maybe even monitors showing a brief teaser. Disney has no comment – why would they – but it sounds like it could be the talk of the convention. Head over to First Showing for more info.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson himself – Clark Gregg – does have some comment on the possibility, however. He hinted towards an Avengers Comic Con plan on Twitter: “Just got some sick secret info about comicon. May be gettin’ strategic in the homeland. Might even do some intervening. More to follow..”
Esquire did a photo shoot and interview with soon-to-be-star Hayley Atwell, who plays Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger. If you head to that site you can see more pics and read a full interview that includes quotes like this:
When Chris Evans first took his shirt off on the set of Captain America, I just instinctively grabbed his man boob. They kept it in the film. So we did a couple of takes of me being really inappropriate with my hand on his pec for the duration of the scene.
Blastr has a hilarious article called “5 despised superheroes who might actually make great movies.” One example is Cypher, the above character, who they describe as follows, before saying why they could make a great movie:
Arguably the all-time most useless superhero in a fight, the boy otherwise known as Doug Ramsey has the mutant power to translate languages: which is all well and good, but not very helpful when force bolts are being fired around.
Epix Channel (via ComingSoon) have started to air two featurettes on Captain America: The First Avenger. That’s the first above, the second is at that link. Cap is coming, people.
Due to the amount of graphics and images included in Superhero Bits, we have to split this post over TWO pages. Click the link above to continue to the second page of Superhero Bits.
