Want to watch a preview of Frank Miller‘s latest graphic novel, Holy Terror (seen above)? What do sex positions and superheroes like Batman and Wolverine have in common? What does a Batman executive producer think will happen to the franchise after The Dark Knight Rises? What is being blown up on the sets of The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
This is an awesome list. Topless Robot has come up with what they feel are the top 5 best, and worst, Marvel Comics Super Specials. These were special movie/pop culture themed books Marvel released in the late ’70s through early ’80s. We’ve pulled out one panel above (from one of the worst, Jaws 2), but the rest of the list is just as cool, hilarious and uncomfortable.
Badass Digest gets really inside with a complaint about The Dark Knight Rises. The football game filmed a few weeks ago was between the Gotham Rogues and the Rapid City Monuments, neither of which are DC Comics franchises, plus – according to the article – a complete waste of a golden opportunity to throw a little nod to the fans and DC continuity. Great stuff.
Jon Favreau talks to IGN about Iron Man 3 and The Avengers, which he’s producing.
Hollywood Chicago (via CBM) spoke to Michael Uslan, an executive producer on every Batman film from Tim Burton’s 1989 version to the currently in production The Dark Knight Rises. They asked him where he saw the franchise going once Nolan’s films were done:
I just look to the comic books. For 72 years, they have given us such vastly different interpretations of The Batman character, from one extreme to the next, one as equally valid as another. Depending on when you were born, or what you were reading or seeing on TV when you were 12 years old, probably defines what your true Batman might be. It is something that will never end and will always be open to new and valid interpretations.
A few weeks back, we alerted you to this original John Romita Sr. art from Amazing Spider-Man #49. Well, if you wanted it, I hope you ponied up $167,300 cause that’s how much it sold for according to Bleeding Cool.
Frank Miller‘s next graphic novel, Holy Terror, is on the way and Bleeding Cool has a bunch of cool, new stuff on it. There’s the video preview (above) as well as a poster (glimpsed at top) and the first five pages of the comic.
A few days back we posted a Batman apron complete with abs. Now here’s something for the ladies, Batgirl and Supergirl aprons from this site, which also has Harry Potter, Super Mario and more (via BoingBoing).
THE NEXT PAGE HAS SPOILERS FROM THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and THE AVENGERS.
Due to the amount of graphics and images included in Superhero Bits, we have to split this post over TWO pages. Click the link above to continue to the second page of Superhero Bits.
