Superhero Bits: Amazing Spider-Man, Dark Knight Rises, Avengers, Superman, Comic Con

Want to see a possible new poster for The Avengers? How about a tease of high end toys based on the whole team? What are Andrew Garfield, Rhys Ifans and Irrfan Khan saying about The Amazing Spider-Man? If Bruce Wayne built a suit like Iron Man, what would it look like? Was a student humiliated when he got caught wearing Superman underwear? Who would have been cast in an X-Men movie if it got made in the 1990s? Read about all this and more in today's Superhero Bits.

Is this the new poster for The Avengers? Stark Industries (via Comic Book Movie) says it might be.

Andrew Garfield spoke to Total Film (via CBM) about the tone of The Amazing Spider-Man:

We haven't gone for gritty, we've gone for grounded. If we try and make Batman, we'll fail. The new Batman is it's own thing – and also in terms of tone, Spider-Man is nothing like that character. Spider-Man is witty, Spider-Man is a kid, Spider-Man wants to have fun, he's a teenager and he needs to go through first love and piss around.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman flying next to a car via The Awesomer.

A Young Justice video game will be released in 2013 called Young Justice: Legacy. Read more at Superhero Hype.

Tobias Kwan's interpretation of Batman is striking. Thanks to Geek Art.

Tom Hiddleston spoke to Total Film (via CBM) about fighting members of The Avengers:

I had huge fun with Chris Evans, as Captain America, because super-soldier though he may be, he's still a man, up against a God who in his own mind is infinitely superior. Then, in the ring with The Hulk, we've got this silver tongued, lightening quick mind up against the embodiment of rage..Loki has this mercurial, transformative ability, not just physically but intellectually, so not all the fights are purely physical. Mind games? Maybe..

If you're in a cosplay kind of mood, and specifically ready to see superheroes, head over to Gamma Squad for a huge gallery.

If you thought San Diego, New York and Chicago cons have all the fun, turns out that Comic Con India will have a major presentation featuring The Avengers and John Carter. Read more at the Hollywood Reporter.

Slumdog Millionaire star Irrfan Khan spoke to Zee News (via CBM) about his work in The Amazing Spider-Man and teased something interesting:

It was wonderful working with Marc Webb in the film. He is a fabulous director. Adapting a costume was not difficult but the way he approached me, the respect he showered on me is very rarely seen.

Ben Deguzman puts his personal spin on the villains of The Dark Knight Rises, via CBM.

The Daily News writes about a situation in Atlanta where a student was humiliated because he was wearing Superman underwear.

Bleeding Cool posts another video showing how Marvel omnibuses (a collection of previously released comics) are superior to their DC counter parts.

Though an X-Men movie wasn't made until 2000, what would have happened if it got made a few years earlier? Geekscape hypothesizes about the project from top to bottom.

If you like Batman art, you are loving today's column. And here's more. RPF member EyeofSauron asks the question, what if Bruce Wayne built a suit like Iron Man? Thanks to Fashionably Geek.

Rhys Ifans spoke to Empire Magazine (via CBM) about his playing Dr. Curt Connors, aka, The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man. Here's just a taste:

 He is a broken man who wants to fix himself. The Lizard almost becomes a drug for him, an alter-ego like Jekyll and Hyde, if you like. He's strong and brave and agile in a way that he can't be in his own life.

We've already seen Black Widow and Nick Fury, now Hot Toys has teased the rest of The Avengers on their Facebook.
