What did Anne Hathaway have to say about the fan’s response to the above photo of her in The Dark Knight Rises? What did someone in that suit destroy on the set of the film? Which Avengers actors does Joss Whedon have a man crush on? How much will it cost you to get an original piece of Amazing Spider-Man art? Which Marvel movies could fill the two just announced 2014 release dates? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
MTV News spoke to Anne Hathaway about the reveal of the Catwoman photo from The Dark Knight Rises and not only does she call them out on their reaction but tells fans they haven’t seen anything yet.
Speaking of Catwoman, TMZ has a video of a stunt woman on the Batpod crushing a (possibly IMAX) camera on the set of The Dark Knight Rises. Really funny stuff. That’s a photo above, click on the link to see the video, which isn’t embeddable.
The Avengers are in Cleveland and Cleveland.com (via Superhero Hype) reports that they’re turning several blocks into New York City’s Times Square for a massive battle scene very soon. There’s more info, including specific street closures, at the link.
And as of right now, The Avengers production is finally filming at NASA’s Plum Brook facility. According to an article in the Sandusky Register (via Coming Soon) Samuel L. Jackson is the only actor filming in the zero gravity space. Hmm.
More and more images from Batman: Arkham City continue to leak out and the latest, thank to Superhero Hype, is of Solomon Grundy. That’s not in game footage, of course, just concept art.
Joss Whedon talks about The Avengers. You know you want to watch. In this installment, thanks to MTV News, he talks about the expanded role Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) has and more.
Superhero Hype has an interview with Michael Barnett, the director of the HBO documentary Superheroes, which is about real life people who pose as masked avengers. Think Kick Ass: The Documentary. Here’s a snippet from the interview:
To this day, I actually don’t know Mr. Extreme’s real name and I’ve known him for a couple of years now. The fascinating thing is that I don’t need to. I know him. I know him well. I know him deeply. Yeah, it took a long time to establish that trust. And he’s seen the movie five or six times now. He loves it. His personality is so pronounced in the movie. I think he finds it therapeutic in some ways. I think the only reason he does this is to spread his message of being a volunteer crimefighter.
Blastr comes up with a list of eight controversial comic book movie casting decisions that actually worked. Hugh Jackman? Yes. Edward Norton? To an extent. Head over there to give your opinion.
