Mark Ruffalo spoke to The Wall Street Journal (via CBM) about what The Avengers really means to him:

You have all these disparate egos, superheroes in this and that, and they refuse to give up some of their positions in order to make a more perfect union and to join the team. That's really what the whole movie is about: subjugating your own best interest momentarily to further that of the whole.

Jeremy Renner spoke to Get Hampshire (via CBM) about the differences between shooting Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and The Avengers:

Mission was a massive movie then The Avengers came round, and that's a huge movie. There are all these superheroes in it, passing a baton between superheroes There's a lot of fighting! But that should be a big, fun movie. It's a whole other world. We're dealing with other worlds, and other things like Thor and all. Mission has got that more, I'm not going to say it's the most grounded movie, but it's got a sense of realism to it.

Superhero Hype posted some new photos from The Amazing Spider-Man. One we saw in Empire Magazine, and this one of Emma Stone is of a scene we've already seen.

Cosmic Book News has posted a rumor that a major actor has been cast for a major cameo in Man of Steel. If it's true, and there's no indication that it is, it would be considered a major spoiler so visit the link at your own risk.
