Which upcoming Batman property is going to be in 3D? What did Anne Hathaway have to say to the paparazzi on the set of The Dark Knight Rises? Want to see a commercial for the new DC Comics relaunch? How about find out the up-to-the-minute latest on Iron Man 3? Will Emma Stone kiss Andrew Garfield upside down in The Amazing Spider-Man? Read about that and see a full page of awesome images and videos from The Avengers (Captain America! Explosions! Military! Mystery Guns!) and Man of Steel in today’s better-late-than-never Superhero Bits.
The Hero Complex premiered the 30 second spot for DC Comics‘ relaunch campaign, The New 52, that will play at CineMedia’s First Look pre-movie promotion. There’s a longer, 2 minute version above.
Comic Book Movie found some quotes from the head of Robert Downey Jr.‘s production company, David Gambino, which give some significant updates on Iron Man 3. He talks villain/villains, Kevin Feige and Jon Favreau‘s involvement as well as this update on the scheduling:
We’re still in the early phases. Shane [Black] & Drew Pearce (second screenwriter) are working through the story outline & hopefully, at some point in August, Shane is going to start hammering keys & writing the script, but he has such a unique viewpoint on Tony Stark & I think his corky sensibility is going to be great for the series. It’s going to feel, like a reinvention of what it can be as opposed to continuing the saga. What makes Shane a good writer is that he’s such a very complex human being. He’s got his own demons in a lot of ways.
MTV Splash Page has done a post running down all of Batman‘s aerial vehicles all the way up to the new one in The Dark Knight Rises.
Not only does Batman: Arkham City have all the awesome Batman outfits and villains in it, but now it’s going to be playable in 3D. Thanks to Superhero Hype.
Cinemablend argues that, with Colin Farrell set to star in Fright Night, his best role is actually as Bullseye in Daredevil.
Anne Hathaway spoke to Conan about losing weight for The Dark Knight Rises and more. Thanks to Comic Book Movie.
A lot of questions that I used to get asked were, ‘So, every girl when she grows up wants to be a princess, did you want to be a princess when you grew you?’ And I so wish I’d said what I felt back then, because the truth was, ‘No, I wanted to be Catwoman!’ And now I am. That dream came true, for sure.
That’s the full interview above but, if you don’t want to watch ten minutes of Anne Hathaway on Conan, here’s a snippet of her rapping about the paparazzi on the set of The Dark Knight Rises from Mashable.
Some people have complained about the Superman outfit in Man of Steel but Movies.com lets everyone know that it’s way more accurate than they are giving it credit for.
