This Fake Criterion of Batman & Robin is pretty amazing. Incredibly, it only got an honorable mention in their contest. It makes more sense when you look at the Back to the Future II one that took first place. I want. Bad.

Marvel has released all the character descriptions from The Avengers, according to Stitch Kingdom. Head there to read them all, but here's Bruce Banner:

After a gamma radiation experiment went awry, mild-mannered scientist Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) found himself with a peculiar condition. When angered or provoked, he would transform into the uncontrollable, green-skinned monster known as the Hulk. Now, fearful of the damage that the Hulk could inflict, Dr. Banner chooses to live a discreet life in remote parts of the world, working to cure the sick and help the poor while trying to elude those who would take advantage of his ability to change into the enormous, green menace. When a mounting threat calls for Banner's specialized scientific expertise, S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury recruits him, knowing full well that the incredible strength of Banner's alter ego, the Hulk, would be an asset to The Avengers.

Comics Alliance posted a bunch of animated comic book covers of some of the most famous books of all time. That's obviously The Dark Knight Returns above. There are more at the link.

His quote is below but head there or Coming Soon to read more thoughts on The Avengers:

I don't know. There are a lot of variables in that one. Would they want to make one? What would it be about? There are a lot of things. I suppose, if they all align, then it could be interesting 'cause I certainly like the character. But, I don't know what the future holds.

Chloe Moretz spoke to Showbiz Spy (via CBM) about what she'd want to do with Hit-Girl if Kick-Ass 2 gets made:

I know there is a second comic book but I am not sure about the movie yet. I'd train even harder and go even deeper with the character if I get the chance to be in the sequel. I'd love to do some more Hit Girl.
