Note: Superhero Bits will likely be sporadic over the next week because I’m at Fantastic Fest. Please, don’t weep for me.
Want to watch the first clip from Batman: Year One? Why is George R.R. Martin such a big Marvel fan? What does Ron Perlman have to say about the possibility of Hellboy 3? How about Mark Millar about Kick Ass 2 and Kick Ass 3? Does Tom Hardy have any plans post The Dark Knight Rises? Would you like to study the architecture of various superhero lairs? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.

I mean, I have been acting for over 20 years and I started in the smallest little theater that you can possibly imagine and then I very slowly built myself to this point. So it is never like there is this real sharp change or something that really startled me. It has just been very gradual.

Batman is really not lending his name to the best quality products anymore. Thanks to Reddit for this find.
…But it’s a short lived time at the top as Thor then took the top spot the following week according to The Hollywood Reporter.
You have to think these guys heard from DC’s lawyer at some point. Very sexy use of Batgirl, Catwoman and Wonder Woman in a Mexican Commercial thanks to Comics Alliance.
Ron Perlman told MovieWeb that he’s still waiting on Hellboy 3 but thinks it’s possible:
I wait patiently. Write your Congressman.
