Olivia Thirlby spoke to Josh Winning about working on Dredd (via CBM):

It doesn't go that way only to separate itself from the former Dredd movie, it takes its air of seriousness and violence from the comics, so our idea was to really honour the world of Mega City One in the comics.

The Den of Geek (via CBM) spoke to Tom Hiddleston, who talked about how Joss Whedon went about balancing the different ways directors adapted all the characters in The Avengers:

Joss was brought on at a very early point on Avengers, and Ken showed him Thor, I think. They just sat down and watched it together, because Joss had asked, "Can I watch the film before I start writing, I just want to see what you've done with Thor and Loki". And Joss really loved what Ken had done, and what we'd all done together....And so we took that as a template, but then understood that, of course, in the Avengers, all those characters, not just Thor and Loki, but Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Black Widow, Clint Barton, Nick Fury, they have to move forward and evolve into something else.

FBTB (via CBM) posted your first look at some Marvel Lego representations that'll be out before The Avengers.
