Want more clues to The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman puzzle? What sexual favor did Hayley Atwell jokingly perform on the set of Captain America: The First Avenger? How can you work a little Marvel into your food preparation? Is there a Batman connection in Man of Steel? Would you like to read quotes from Samuel L. Jackson and Andrew Garfield about their new movies, The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man? Read about all of this and much more in today’s Superhero Bits.
By now you’ve all seen the official image of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises. And while speculation has run rampant that it might not be her full costume, here’s a clue that backs up that argument. Above is one of Hathaway’s stand-ins holding some sort of cat mask. Very curious, don’t you think? Thanks to EyePrime (via Movieweb). There’s much more Batman below.
That Catwoman makes also an appearance over on Geeks of Doom who took at look at the new image of Selina Kyle and gone into detail with analysis. Head over there to read their thoughts on all of it.
And, Batman News has this nugget in their announcement of Catwoman. Very interesting:
Anne Hathaway can be seen wearing some high-tech glasses, but I’m told that she will be wearing a cowl/mask at some point in the movie.
We’ve all seen the above image from Man of Steel as of now but, /Film reader Remco J. thinks he sees something else in it. Look at his above illustration for what he believes is a reference to The Dark Knight Rises. It’s a stretch, for sure, but anything is possible and it could be a reason why Superman is so small in this image.
I’m actually doing more than I’ve done in any of the other films. You don’t have to wait until the end of the movie to see me. I’m actually around the whole movie and I do a lot more. I have action scenes and I actually do things to people in this movie.
Nick Fury continues:
We’re all really good friends. It’s kind of funny to stand around in a room and see everybody. Thor is standing there in his costume. Captain America. Sometime’s he’s dressed and sometimes he’s not. Scarlett [Johansson] is there as Black Widow. Robert Downey is there. He very seldom has his Iron Man costume on when he’s just hanging around with his buds. It’s just amazing to look around the room and see all of those guys there and go, ‘Okay. This is cool.’
Artist Marko Manev has created a very cool series of Marvel inspired minimalist posters. That’s obviously Daredevil above. But over on Geek Tyrant (via the Behance Network) he’s got a ton more, both of The Avengers, and other Marvel characters like Spidey, Wolverine and the Fantastic Four.
In an interview with Nylon Magazine (via Comic Book Movie) the beautiful Hayley Atwell spoke about some very sexual joking on the set of Captain America: The First Avenger? All I can say is: we’re waiting, Dominic:
We got up to a lot of mischief on set. There was a lot of waiting around, so he’d get out his iPhone and make videos of the characters when they think they’re not being watched. Like [my character] Peggy Carter giving Captain America a blow job in the cock pit of the plane. I spoke to Dominic yesterday and he threatened to put the video on YouTube once the movie comes out.
This is the cover of Alan Moore Storyteller (obviously), a new book that spans the career of one of the most revered and mysterious comic book writers of all time, Alan Moore, creator of The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, V for Vendetta and, of course, Watchmen. Thanks to Boing Boing for the heads up.
What Culture wildly speculated over actors who could play Doctor Strange in the currently-in-development project and now their wishlist of directors is equally as ambitious. Tim Burton? Guillermo Del Toro? Still, they make compelling arguments.
