Will The Wolverine be totally set in Japan? Why is The Avengers trailer presented by Paramount when Disney is behind it? What’s it like to voice Cyclops? Did you really see everything there was to see in The Avengers trailer? And, most importantly, what did the final two pages of yesterday’s Superhero Bits have on them in regards to R.I.P.D., Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Rises and much much more? Read about all that and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
Turns out The Wolverine might not be totally set in Japan. Or at least that’s what Hugh Jackman told MTV News.
Scott Porter of Friday Night Lights fame spoke to io9 what it’s like to voice Cyclops in the new X-Men cartoon coming to G4. Here’s a taste:
It was about playing the reality of the situation around him as opposed to imitating another person’s voice. Being able to voice the leader of the X-Men my first time out with voice work is a huge blessing. Taking up the mantle of Scott Summers was definitely nerve-wracking! Doing voice work for the X-Men anime and [the video game] X-Men: Destiny, those projects were definitely for me.
Finally, here’s an official look, thanks to Superhero Hype, of Nightwing in Batman: Arkham City. Go there to read how to play him.
Comic Book Movie has another featurette from the Green Lantern Blu-ray, this one focusing on Hector Hammond’s transformation. Not embeddable.
In celebration of Halloween, Geek Tyrant is posting spooky superhero art such as this zombie Spider-Man by Deviant Artist RM73.
The Marvel Comics App is now on Android.
Think you saw everything there was to see in The Avengers trailer? Think again. Comic Book Movie has a list of five things you probably missed.
Speaking of The Avengers trailer, curious why Parmount gets a credit but not Disney? Variety has the scoop:
Knowing Disney wanted to turn “The Avengers” into a franchise and bank on the success of “Iron Man” after buying Marvel for $4 billion, Par’s brass negotiated a deal in which it continues to collect 8% of the B.O. as part of fees it would have earned for distribbing the pic, as it did with the two “Iron Man” pics, “Thor” and “Captain America.” It gets 9% for “Iron Man 3.”
BoingBoing posted a cool gallery of old school superhero costumes such as Robin, above.
The Incredible Hulk doesn’t really need transportation but he’s had a ton of it in toy form over the years. Geek Twins has posted a hilarious list of the ten worst.
