Want to go to a Batman football game? How about one that’s being filmed for The Dark Knight Rises? The production will be filming at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Post Gazette (via Superhero Hype) has the info on how you can be a part of it.
MTV Movies did a long interview with Captain America himself, Chris Evans, in which he talked about a ton of things. In the above clip he talks about what would happen if he fought Iron Man. Is this an Avengers spoiler? Probably not.
More news out of Pittsburgh in regards to The Dark Knight Rises. They’ll be shooting at Rock Airport in West Deer, PA, which has been closed for several weeks as preparations are being made. There’s more info at On Location Vacations.
You’ve probably seen fan made Batmobiles before. Pawn Stars even looked at one in a recent episode. But they are never like this. This Batmobile (via Gizmodo) is actually powered by a turbine, making it legitimately fast. Check it out.
UGO has a list of the Most Shocking Comic News Of 2011 and, if you can believe it, the DC reboot comes in at number 11. Last place. That’s the least shocking. You’ve gotta see this list.
Bryan Cranston is out shilling for Breaking Bad (back this Sunday) and The AV Club asked him about voicing Commissioner Gordon in the animated Batman Year One:
You know, the reason I took that was—well, at first, I turned it down with the comment, “Thank you, but I’m not interested in that.” And I told my agency why, and I guess the studio asked me why I would turn it down, so they told them. And they said, “No, no, no, please, it’s not anything like the TV show.” Because that’s what I thought. I was like, “I don’t want to do the ‘Bang! Zoom! Kapow!’ thing, saying things like, ‘Get to the Batcave!’” But they said, “No, no, this is completely different,” and I said, “Well, all right, I’ll read the script.” So they sent me the script. My edict is, “Everything I do really has to be well-written,” and it’s really served me well. And I read that, and I went, “You know what? This is really well-written, and it’s complex.” Even the Commissioner Gordon role is complex, because he’s conflicted. Basically good, but he has some major character flaws. And it was, like, “God, this is really interesting! This isn’t like a kid’s cartoon series. This is really in-depth!”
