Would you like to watch video interviews with Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders and Tom Hiddleston discussing The Avengers? How about see the first look of Michael Shannon as Zod or the new Superman cape in Man of Steel? What are the perks of pre-ordering the Thor Blu-ray? And what did Christopher Nolan do to thank the city of Pittsburgh for allowing them to film The Dark Knight Rises there? Read about all of this, and see a clearly marked page of video spoilers from The Avengers and Dark Knight Rises, in today’s Superhero Bits.
Superhero Hype alerts us to this ad taken out in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette thanking the city for allowing The Dark Knight Rises to film in their fair city. Shooting is just about over. Later in the column, we’ve got some new videos from the set.
Iron Man and Thor, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter at the D23 Expo about The Avengers and how the workload compared to their individual films. Watch more Avengers speaking below.
The Hollywood Reporter says Green Lantern is “picking up some steam overseas” and has done almost $80 million internationally already. That’s pretty solid.
This is the first image of Superman actually on the set of Man of Steel. It kind of stinks but confirms that his cape does not have the “S” on it. The image first popped up on the Man of Steel FB page via CBM.
Reb Brown, who played Captain America in two TV movies, told TMZ he’s mad that producers suggested they wanted him to appear in Captain America: The First Avenger, but then never contacted him.
More Man of Steel. Here’s the first image of Michael Shannon as Zod. (Well, kind of.) It seems like he’s going to have some kind of CG suit from the mocap suit he’s wearing. Thanks to the Man of Steel FB via Geek Tyrant.
On Location Vacations has addresses and filming dates for when The Dark Knight Rises comes to Los Angeles.
Marvel premiered the Best Buy exclusive art for the upcoming Thor Blu-ray, which includes the first ever image of Thor from Journey Into Mystery #83 in August 1962. And, if you pre-order, you get a month of Marvel Digital comics unlimited for free.
XO Jane has a list of the five best comic books for people who don’t think they would like reading comic books. Some of these sound really interesting.
