Batman Year One is coming out in animated form soon, and there have been rumors that The Dark Knight Returns would be the next big bat-tale to get the animated treatment. That’s now official; an animated TDKR(eturns) will be out next year. Thanks to Slice of Sci-Fi.
If you’re into paper models and saw Captain America: The First Avenger this week, then you might be interested in making your own mini-Cap. You can download the specs here (via Paper Craft Paradise and Super Punch).
Granted, you can watch it on Blu-ray anytime you want but, if you want to see where this whole Avengers thing began in the Marvel universe, Iron Man 2 will be screening in an awesome outdoor setting at Coney Island this week. Visit Geekweek for the info.
Superhero Bits is t-shirt happy today and this might be my favorite. This is a play on the Shepard Fairey’s Obama Hope image that actually makes sense! Thanks to Last Exit to Nowhere.
Rose Byrne, who was awesome in both Bridesmaids and X-Men: First Class this summer, spoke to IGN about the possibility of a sequel to that film:
Yeah, we all had to sign on for three, I believe. Well, I did anyway. But as of right now I have no idea if they’re planning on doing another one. But that was the idea depending on how it all went, I suppose. We’ll see though. I loved working on it and loved working with the cast. I loved Matthew Vaughn. I also loved the style. The era and the fashion. And it was kind of kitsch-y and funny. It was a really fun and sophisticated superhero movie. I’m very proud of the film.
Collider has posted this really slick looking fan-made teaser poster for The Avengers using the concept art that Marvel released at Comic-Con.
Finally, speaking of The Avengers, Disney XD will premiere a new animated show next year: Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. Read more about it on Blue Sky Disney.
