What did Joss Whedon have to say about a potential Planet Hulk movie? How close did Jim Sturgess get to starring in Guardians of the Galaxy? Is Jim Carrey excited about Kick-Ass 2? Which piece of X-Men history has made its way into X-Men: Days of Future Past? How did Spider-Man influence Oz The Great and Powerful? Has a car company signed on to work with Iron Man 3? And has another super-positive review of Man of Steel hit the Net? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Joss Whedon told IGN that the idea of a Planet Hulk storyline in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is “Nonsense.” If that’s the case, that above image from the Iron Man 3 trailer seems like a waste, no?
Jim Sturgess spoke to MTV about how close he got audition for Guardians of the Galaxy and his thoughts on the process:
I got way further than I’d ever imagined I possibly could. As you get further and further down the line, you start caring about it more and more. The competitiveness in you starts kicking in. But I was amazed I’d gotten as far down the line as I did. As you find out more about what the movie is about — it’s set in a total fantasy landscape, which was intriguing to me. This guy has a talking raccoon and a giant human tree or something like that. It’s more in the world of kind of ‘Star Wars,’ I guess.

Bryan Singer tweeted this from the set of X-Men Days of Future Past. Yes, it looks like Cerebro.
Superhero Hype ran this better photo of the stunt from Amazing Spider-Man 2 as well as some intelligent guess work linking it to The Rhino.
Morris Chestnut talked to Superhero Hype about his role in Kick-Ass 2 as Hit-Girl’s guardian. Here’s a small snippet:
I don’t really get too much action in this one. I’m the wise guardian. I know what she’s into, but I let her know – ‘Don’t force me to have to make a decision. Because I’m your guardian and I love you and I made a promise to your father that I would look after you, but I’m also an officer of the law. So if you break the law, and you’re out there doing this Kick-Ass stuff, I’m gonna have to make a decision.’
