Posted on Monday, September 5th, 2011 by Germain Lussier
This special Labor Day edition of Superhero Bits is filled with the labor that Joss Whedon and Christopher Nolan put in this weekend filming their 2012 blockbusters The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. The first page is non-spoiler superhero stuff, but then we’ve got two full pages of insane set photos, videos and details from the Manhattan sets of The Avengers and the Los Angeles set of The Dark Knight Rises. Suffice to say, the spoilers abound but some of the stuff is absolutely jaw-dropping. See it all, and more, in today’s Superhero Bits.
Entertainment Weekly has a break down of the new Justice League #1 (above) versus the old Justice League #1 and how the differences in the two show how the comic book landscape has changed drastically.
I found that intimidating. He nailed it. My girlfriend was watching Superman 2 and I said ‘Turn it off, I can’t watch, I’m not worthy!’
There’s just some graffiti that we can all get behind, am I right? Thanks to UniqueDaily.
The Ghost is who I want them to go with. It’s the villain I want them to use. I’m looking forward to getting the chance to talk to [Black] about it.
Tom Hiddleston spoke to MTV News about his work in The Avengers including the new costume (“more gangster”) some specific fights, as well as these thoughts on the leaked photos:
Jeremy Latcham, who’s the producer, showed me a picture that somebody took in Cleveland last week which was wrongly attributed to being a stunt double, but it was in fact me. It’s either the one when I’m being kicked in the chest or in the throat by [SPOILER], that’s definitively me. It was weird, we were out in the most public space in all of Cleveland which is that main square. We’ve tried to be so careful about keeping everything under wraps, just because you don’t want the experience to be ruined before it comes out. But it was both difficult and exciting at the same time. It’s exciting to get instant feedback from what you’re doing. The Cleveland crowd was so great, whooping and cheering and happy to be there, they all came out and stood behind the barricades clapping and cheering, sometimes you look around and think, ‘Oh yeah, we’re making a big movie.’
Back to Hiddleston, he spoke to IGN Movies about how he’s proud The Avengers movie sort of mirrors what happened in The Avengers #1, seen above.
According to Gamerant, at the recent PAX convention, they were playing Batman: Arkham City and notice that in addition to Batman, Robin and Catwoman, there was room for a mystery fourth playable character.
THE NEXT PAGE IS FILLED WITH SPOILERS FOR THE AVENGERS. THE FOLLOWING PAGE IS THE DARK KNIGHT RISES AND MAN OF STEEL.
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.
