Why were a bunch of DC Comics banned from Barnes & Noble? Want to read a description of The Avengers trailer that comes online tomorrow? How about a sneak peak of that trailer? What are the worst moments in the Batman movie franchise? Is it possible to mix Batman and A Christmas Carol? Are there any exclusive versions of the Green Lantern Blu-ray? If Pixar made a baby X-Men movie, what might that look like? What was flying over the set of The Dark Knight Rises this weekend? Read about all this and more in today's Superhero Bits.

What do you get when you combine Batman and Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol? Batman Noel, a new comic series out next month. Check out a preview over on DC's website.

Robert Downey Jr. spoke to the Los Angeles Times about his career and specifically focused on the highs of Iron Man and lows of Iron Man 2. There's much more at the link:

The first one changed everything for me and with the second 'Iron Man' there were certain aspects that were dissatisfying and disappointing to me but at least they lit me right.

Fans of Batman: The Movie will want this moment from the film immortalized on a t-shirt or dress found on Fashionably Geek.

It's not censorship, but Watchmen, Sandman and 100 other DC Comics graphic novels have been removed from Barnes & Noble because of their exclusive availability  on Amazon's Kindle. Head over to Bleeding Cool to read more.

The We Love Comics Tumblr posted this photo with the great caption "The things you have to do to stay in character."

Someone on the IMDB (via Comic Book Movie) has a possible description of The Avengers trailer that should come online Tuesday. It's long, so we won't run the whole thing here, but here's a snippet:

Hawkeye and Black Widow back to back as they both fire their weapons at the aliens. This was the last shot of the mix, and quite interesting. It's Loki blasting Thor from to top of a building, and we then see Thor falling unconsciously, his hammer falling out of his hand.

Yes, that's a tease of The Avengers trailer which will actually premiere on Entertainment Tonight Monday, according to Superhero Hype. Set your DVRs.

Comic Book Movie posted another extra from the Green Lantern Blu-ray. I would embed it, but I can't get my mouse to the share button. Dumb video. It's good though.

Speaking of the Green Lantern Blu-ray soon, here's a cool piece of fan art by Stefani Rennee via Cool Vibe. This could have been the movie poster.

Deviant Artist Hobo123 made this Avengers banner, found on Comic Book Movie. Nice job.

The Movie Pool has come up with their list of villains they'd love to see in the next Batman franchise. On the list, of course, is Hugo Strange.What Culture came up with what they think are the 10 Worst Moments in the Batman Film Franchise. Above, the creation of the Batgirl suit, is #1, but some of the other choices – including several from The Dark Knight – will surprise you.

If Pixar did a X-Men Babies movie, it might look something like this. Not sure who did this great piece of work, but thanks to Keith Calder on Twitter for the heads up.

Slightly NSFW, this YouTube video was featured on Nerd Bastards and shows why Spider-Man is truly amazing.

Man of Steel set photo! Non-spoiler, of course. Just Ayelet Zurer arriving on the set. She's playing Superman's mom. Striking resemblance to Henry Cavill, huh? Thanks to Zimbio via CBM.

This is a Captain America I can get behind. Pun intended. Thanks to My Confined Space.

Hugh Jackman spoke to The Digital Spy on his desire to finally make The Wolverine.

Comic Book Movie has several different angles, and descriptions of recent shooting on The Dark Knight Rises involving The Batwing and Batpod. Very cool stuff.CBM also posted a sequence of videos detailing a Batpod chase in The Dark Knight Rises.
