How does George Clooney describe his Batman and Robin experience in retrospect? What does Michael Shannon have to say about the alien sets in Man of Steel? Which Marvel comic could, surprisingly, get a film adaptation? What have Christopher Nolan and The Dark Knight Rises crew been up to? Does Hugh Jackman like the new changes to The Wolverine script? Did Professor X pen a comic book for superheroes who go through puberty? Is Deadpool a fan of the Star Wars prequels? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
My Confined Space has posted this very cool image called Comic Collection. Visit the site for the hi-res version.
Idris Elba spoke to Attack of the Show about his work in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and said it brings comic book style to life.
So many comic book readers say they’re either DC or Marvel fans but, according to this list over on Topless Robot, sometimes they’re almost identical. They’ve listed their 10 Bizarre DC/Marvel parallels including the one above, Darkseid and Thanos.
Speaking to Total Film, George Clooney admitted that Batman and Robin was a “difficult” experience:
With hindsight it’s easy to look back at this and go ‘Woah, that was really shit and I was really bad in it.’ The truth is, my phone rang, and the head of Warner Bros said ‘Come into my office, you are going to play Batman in a Batman film’ and I said ‘Yeah!’ I called my friends and they screamed and I screamed and we couldn’t believe it! I just thought the last one had been successful so I thought I was just going to be in a big successful franchise movie. In a weird way I was. Batman is still the biggest break I ever had and it completely changed my career, even if it was weak and I was weak in it. It was a difficult film to be good in. I don’t know what I could have done differently. But if I am going to be Batman in the film Batman & Robin, I can’t say it didn’t work and then not take some of the blame for that.

Michael Shannon was talking to the Los Angeles Times and spoke about the sets he’s currently shooting Man of Steel on:
It’s unlike anything I’ve ever done. It’s massive sets. It’s literally another world. It’s the first time I’ve acted on another planet….As much green screen as there is and I’m sure will be, they’re actually building a lot of the sets as well. I had thought it was just going to be green screens everywhere and we would just be pretending everything. There’s quite a bit of detail they’re building and putting into it. It’s very helpful. The less green screen, the better — I don’t think you’d be able to find an actor on Earth who wouldn’t have that sentiment.
