Is there any way Man of Steel 2 could be in theaters next year? Want to see the new poster for Red 2 and read the tracklist for The Wolverine soundtrack? What do The Avengers and Daft Punk have in common? Did David Goyer comment on the collateral damage in Man of Steel? What did Bryan Singer say about rebooting in X-Men: Days of Future Past? How did Robert Downey Jr. disappoint an Iron Man fan? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Comic Book Movie posted this new poster from Red 2.
The Wall Street Journal reports Man of Steel 2 could be here as soon as 2014. That seems unlikely.
David Goyer spoke to Bleeding Cool about the collateral damage in Man of Steel.
One of the things we were hoping to depict is that Superman is not a god. We say he’s a god-like figure but he’s not omnipotent. Even in the comic books he cannot save everyone. I think people die [in Metropolis]. Clearly hundreds if not thousands of people have died while the gravity machines are going off. There were probably even people who died in Smallville.
When you’re dealing with a threat like this, there will be collateral damage. This is something that hadn’t been depicted in comic book films is what it would be like if these powerful figures did clash, if The Hulk and Thor fought, people would probably die. Particularly in this case where Zod and the Kryptonians really don’t care if people die. I think people died and I’m sure that upsets some people.
Working late in Asgard tonight. Kinda hard to take a nap in armor lol #ForAsgard

Jaimie Alexander confirms Thor: The Dark World reshoots are currently underway.
Speaking to Bleeding Cool, David Goyer described some problems inherent in Man of Steel 2 (spoilers for Man of Steel here):
We were able to sidestep the issue of the ludicrous glasses disguise in this film but going forwards, we’re going to find ourselves in a sticky wicket. Zack and I have definitely talked about “Okay, hmm, this will be interesting.” Clearly Perry White and Steve Lombard see Lois kissing Superman at the end of the film. Perry’s not an idiot. Moving forward, he’s probably going to say to Lois “What’s up with that?” We’re definitely going to have to go through some story gymnastics.
