It’s going to be tough to beat your first official look at Man of Steel in today’s Superhero Bits but we’ll do our best. How does Marc Webb explain the point of view in The Amazing Spider-Man trailer? What are the main differences between Captain America: The First Avenger and the comics? Would you like to see Anne Hathaway on the set of The Dark Knight Rises? And what do Ryan Reynolds and the CEO of Time Warner have to say about Green Lantern 2? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Screenrant has an awesome, epic article called The Ultimate Captain America Comic Book and Movie Comparison Guide which goes into details with the changes made in the latest Marvel movie. We used one of their images above, so thank you very much.
Many people have complained about the point of view section of the trailer to The Amazing Spider-Man. Marc Webb spoke to MTV News about the topic and explained.
The CEO of Time Warner, Jeff Bewkes, discussed the under-performance of Green Lantern and said that a decision on a sequel will be decided upon “in due course.” That doesn’t sound promising. You can read more on the matter over on The Hollywood Reporter.
Everyone is waiting to see Catwoman on the set of The Dark Knight Rises and here she is! Well, kind of. It’s Anne Hathaway and she’s in Selina Kyle wear, not Catwoman’s costume, but that’s her after a day of filming interiors. Thanks to Subaru WRX Fan (via CBM) for the video. There are more images and videos at that link.
Slice of SciFi has a list of very geeky guest stars who are going to be on the new SyFy superhero themed TV show Alphas. Head over there to check it out.
Ryan Reynolds spoke to MTV News about R.I.P.D., which should be followed by Deadpool and also comments on Green Lantern 2.
Den of Geek has come up with a list of eight things comic book movies can learn from Captain America: The First Avenger. It’s a solid list. Here’s one example, “Hire a director with a vision, and let him realize it:”
Captain America unspools with the confidence and momentum of a seasoned pro. Director Joe Johnston has had a fascinating history in moviemaking.. In his own directing career, he’s made some troubled productions watchable (Jurassic Park 3, The Wolfman), while creating some bona fide gems (The Rocketeer, October Sky). In many ways, it seems his whole career has led him to Captain America. Even more impressive, it appears as if Marvel actually gave him the time, budget, and autonomy to make the movie he wanted. The result is a film with a look, feel, and pulse that is unique and refreshing. You don’t feel studio meddling here. Just a story being told by a filmmaker who finally has the freedom to spread his wings and deliver a love letter to the rollicking serials he’s always loved.
