Which superhero did Quentin Tarantino once talk about bringing to the big screen? Did Shane Black influence scenes in the first Iron Man?

What plot point from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does a casting call reveal? How has the Bat symbol changed over the years? Want to watch a ten minute tribute to Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Trilogy? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Quentin Tarantino once talked about possibly making a Luke Cage movie. Thanks to MTV.
Robert Downey Jr. was in Los Angeles this weekend and Screenrant reports on him talking about Shane Black‘s relationship to Iron Man before he directed the third film:
I adore him. I’ve been a fan of Shane Black since I saw ‘Lethal Weapon.’ When we were doing the first Iron Man, Jon Favreau and I used to call up Shane Black. We had two lifeline calls; one was to J.J. Abrams, which was about the third act. And for the other call, we went to Shane’s house.
For instance, in the ‘Iron Man’ scene where Tony Stark comes back from captivity and calls a press conference, and then asked everybody to sit down, the speech Stark gives all came from Shane Black. So to get him to do ‘Iron Man 3,’ it has just been this awesome experience and one of my favorite working experiences. ‘Iron Man 3? is going to be a very, very bold genre film, from the storytelling.
Here’s a great image set taking you through the full Dark Knight exhibit on display in Los Angeles.
Samuel L. Jackson appeared on Stan Lee’s World of Heroes to talk Nick Fury and more.
Iron Man 3 is being showcased at an even in Singapore and Comic Book Movie found the photos.
Speaking to Empire Magazine, Jonathan Nolan confirmed that using the name “Robin” at the end of Dark Knight Rises was a “gag” and talked Justice League excitement.
