Would Christina Hendricks play Wonder Woman? Want to see the trailer for the next season of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Does Joseph Gordon-Levitt think you should look at Dark Knight Rises spoilers? What do Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges look like in R.I.P.D.? Does Clark Kent look any different in Man of Steel? What kind of car does Bane drive in The Dark Knight Rises? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Entertainment Tonight presents this clip of Chris Hemsworth learning to swing Mjolnir in this feature from the Thor Blu-ray, in stores now.
The Hollywood Reporter says Captain America: The First Avenger has now officially made more money internationally than it has in the country of the title. I’d be upset if America’s population wasn’t dwarfed by the ENTIRE rest of the world.
This column concentrates mostly on fake superheros but it’s nice to highlight some real ones every once in a while. Badass Digest points us to this insane video of real heroes literally lifting up a car to save a man.
Christina Hendricks was talking to Vulture and they brought up the fact that both Joss Whedon and Nicolas Winding Refn have publicly mentioned they’d love her to play Wonder Woman, if a movie ever gets made. Here’s Hendricks’ first quote saying she’d love to do it but the interview continues with her discussing what she’d bring to the character and more:
Sure! I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll — sorry, Aaron, you’re exposed. [Giggles.] And Nicolas said, when we were on set, “I want you to be Wonder Woman.” And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat.
Geek Tyrant has pulled together a great article about superheroes in World War II in the comic books, cartoons, in Photoshop and much more. Fun stuff.
Film School Rejects created a X-Men First Class drinking game, perfect for enjoying your new Blu-ray.
The Thor Blu-ray also has this season 2 teaser for Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Thanks to Comic Book Movie.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt gave USA Today a compelling argument about why you shouldn’t look at Dark Knight Rises spoilers, or ask any questions, until Christopher Nolan wants you to:
I can tell you that one of the things I admire most about Mr. Nolan is that he understands that the story begins before the movie does. He’s already telling the story that he’s got cooked up. He’s a master storyteller. Every little bit of information he lets out, he does it at the proper time. Far be it for me to preempt the rhythm of his. I love that people are excited about it. I guarantee, as an audience member, one will have the best experience if one just trusts him.
