Speaking to Empire (via CBM), Christopher Nolan spoke about Man of Steel:

It's Zack's movie so it'd be a bit rude of me to turn up and say I've got a few ideas now. My big point of responsibility was helping shepherd David's script. When I'm finished with this I'll be there for whatever Zack wants from me, but it's very much his movie.

Black Widow always poses with her butt out in The Avengers, so Kevin Bolk (via Twitter) imagined if the men did that pose, rather than her.

Apologies to any female readers of this column, this was just too good to not appeal to the other demographic. Bleeding Cool (via Detroit MetroMix) posted photos of girls in body paint at Motor City Comic-Con.

David Goyer spoke to Empire (via CBM) about the final scene in The Dark Knight Rises:

The final scene of The Dark Knight Rises is exactly that scene we talked about [when making The Dark Knight]. It remained completely unchanged. We both knew in our hearts that we were onto something special. I have to tell you, having finally seen everthing strung together a little while ago and seeing that scene, I got a complete lump in my throat.

Brett Ratner talks working in the world of comic books in this interview from the Stan Lee documentary.

Tom Hiddleston tweeted this photo of him wearing a Loki shirt. Very cool. Thanks to Fashionably Geek.

Storyboard artist Federico D'Alessandro spoke to Desde Hollywood via CBM about Iron Man 3:

Shane Black is a master storyteller and the movie is in really good hands. The story delves deeper into Tony Stark's character. By the end of the movie, audiences will have a much better understanding of what his fears are and what makes him tick. I think audiences are really going to enjoy that. There are also some really cool action scenes. It's going to be a thrilling movie.

IO9 posted the work of Matthew Humphreys re-imagining the X-Men as Disney characters (which they kind of are now, anyway).
