Superhero Bits: The Dark Knight Rises, Hulk, Daredevil, Captain America 2, Fantastic Four, More Batman

It's Bat-eve and, despite the awesome X-Men First Class header, we've got lots of Dark Knight Rises in today's Superhero Bits. Such as, how many midnight screenings are there at local theaters? How much money has the film made before it even opened? What did Christopher Nolan say in regards to the review reactions and Rush Limbaugh controversies? Want to read about the construction of The Bat? Which scene do Nolan and Christian Bale think is the lynchpin of the series? In non-Batman news, what's the latest on Guillermo Del Toro's Hulk TV show? Will Marvel characters appear in Wreck-It Ralph? Should Fox let Daredevil go back to Marvel? All this and much more in today's Superhero Bits.

Christopher Nolan also responded to both Rush Limbaugh's Bane comment and the death threats Dark Knight Rises fans have been offering to negative reviews, calling fans "passionate." Movies.com thinks the quote is out of context.
