Cinema Blend was talking to Rhys Ifans about his new role in Anonymous and, of course, they asked him about his role in The Amazing Spider-Man. Ifans gave up some cool info too:
The majority of the time I’m me, I’m a human, not a Lizard. That’s hard enough. I did have the CGi suit for certain scenes. The Lizard is 9 feet tall. There was one day that I went on set and they had a double, a big big guy, playing me, as the Lizard. I looked at it and I went “No.” Following that Marc [Webb, the director] let me know all the physicality, all the physicality you’ll see in the Lizard is my own.
I had a green suit on, and then this cardboard head, and these big claws. It was the most fucking insane… Each and every time you see the Lizard, the technology is so advanced now that when the Lizard’s eyes move, they’re my eyes. If I frown or show any emotion, they’re my emotions. That’s how spectacularly advanced technology is.
Comic Book Resources found this promo image from the new DC reboot of Wonder Woman by Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang. It hits next week.
According to a report in the British tabloid The Sun (via Comic Book Movie) Tom Hardy is wearing lifts on his shoes so he’s the same size as Morgan Freeman and Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises. He’s also using a voice box.
Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers hits DVD today and The Daily Blam posted this clip from the film.
THE LAST TWO BITS CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE AVENGERS AND MAN OF STEEL. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.
/Film reader ScotchyScotchScotch sent in a few photos from the Chicago set of Man of Steel. He says Laurence Fishburne was filming (though you can’t really make him out here) as he was just one of the crowd running down the street looking at something flying through the air. You can see the police cars say Metropolis on them.
Comic Book Movie is reporting that a major character who was reported by Latino Review to be in The Avengers is still, indeed, in the film. Don’t want to mention the character by name cause it’s a big spoiler so if you want to skip it, the article is over:
Latino Review broke that news in May but since then it has been pretty quiet regarding that. Well, according to my source, Thanos is indeed in the film and the mysterious aliens everyone is talking about, is his army. As for the plot details, well, it will be very interesting…Basically Thanos makes a deal with Loki (like Hiddleston said in one interview that Loki makes some shady deals) to get him the Infinity Gauntlet. He trades his army for the Gauntlet. And that’s about it. No word on what ‘Leviathan’ is though.
