What would Tim Gunn think of Green Lantern’s costume? Can The Amazing Spider-Man trailer be duplicated in a video game? Would you like to see one of the new musical numbers from Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark? What’s up with all the Batman’s above? Want to see your first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Dark Knight Rises? How about some quotes from Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway? Curious what the new, non-Peter Parker Spider-Man looks like in the comic books? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
What does fashion guru Tim Gunn think about the outfits in Green Lantern? Nerd Bastards has uncovered the answer in the form of two YouTube videos. The first one is above, the second part is at their link.
Total Film spoke to Tom Hardy about what it was like to not only be cast as Bane, but what it’s like to play the character too. Here’s the first quote about Nolan calling him.
Hang on a minute. You’re asking me to come round the world with you in a Batman movie, playing a villain, and the only downside to it is I have to wear a mask? Hmmm, let me think. I’ll get back to you… No, I’m fucking there, man! Anything you need.
And here’s what he said if he plays Bane as “The Man Who Broke the Bat?”
Mmmmm… Good lead-in, but all I can say is that Chris has a plan up his sleeve that’s not at all disappointing. And that is a definite choice that’s watertight in every respect. I think Bane’s fucking cool so I’m really excited to play him. It’s not the guy in Joel Schumacher’s film, but it shouldn’t disappoint fanboys…
A Pittsburgh man tried to steal a cop car with a police officer still in it earlier this week. He said he was shooting The Dark Knight Rises and this was in the script. Great excuse, dick.
The cast of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark returned to the Late Show with David Letterman a few weeks back and performed the above number. If you can believe it, this song – I think – is one of the new “improvements” on the original play. Yeah. Thanks to Topless Robot.
The Miami New-Times has a funny list of the top five superhero movies that don’t exist and should probably stay that way. It’s honestly just a list of bad superheroes no one would make a movie of anyway but it’s worth mentioning.
