Which Avengers actor confirmed they’d be appearing in Iron Man 3? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.

True Blood actor Joe Manganiello, who was up for the part of Superman in Man of Steel, has another idea of a comic book character he’d love to play. Here’s what he said in an interview with the Huffington Post:
I’d love to do a version of ‘The Punisher,’ but it would have to be directed by Michael Mann. Like a hardcore, rated-R version of ‘The Punisher.’
Everyone is talking about the new, relaunched, Justice League #1 from DC Comics. Artist Ted Brandt did his own visual relaunch, reimaging the team as a Western posse. Head to Gamma Squad to see the full sideshow.
Geek Tyrant has a terrific, eye-opening article called 5 Things You Hope Christopher Nolan Knows About Bane. Simple facts like he speaks, he’s a brilliant tactician, he’s incredibly strong even without his venom and more. I know I learned a thing or two and you’ve gotta hope this stuff is in The Dark Knight Rises.
Here’s a cool spin on the classic picture frame from ThinkGeek. It comes with speech bubble stickers so you can customize your own comic book page in picture form.
I Am Rogue spoke to Stellan Skarsgard about a bunch of things but, of course, got into his experiences in The Avengers. Here’s a quote:
Well with the scene we did in Thor, it was like Loki, one way or the other, entered Eric’s mind. And in Avengers, you will see more clarity in how Loki is using Eric’s mind….He is of importance but the size of the role is not big. It’s a small role and it is a pretty crowded film with a lot of actors in it.
This is the box art for X-Men Destiny, which you’ve seen some images from in previous columns. It’ll be out on September 27. Thanks to the Daily Blam. Check out the new trailer too.

The Movie Pool has published an article called The 4 Ways to Fix Marvel‘s Movies. I didn’t think they necessarily need “fixing” just yet, but, the writer (/Film reader Jordan M) does make a bunch of great points including the incredibly logical: Pace Yourself, Don’t Rush.
Due to the amount of graphics and images included in Superhero Bits, we have to split this post over THREE pages. Click the link above to continue to the second page of Superhero Bits.
