Digital Spy spoke to Christopher Nolan about Man of Steel, via Comic Book Movie.

Alex Negrea posted a bunch of concept art from The Dark Knight Rises video game. Head to his site, or Comic Book Movie, for a ton of gorgeous images.

John Romita Jr. spoke to The Geek Files (via CBM) about his involvement with Kick-Ass 2, which basically means he has to finish the Hit-Girl comic book series:

As far as I know, the Hit-Girl comic is actually the beginning of the film. Kick-Ass 2 is the second half of the film. It's an interesting thing that occurred. The filming got pushed back due to contracts and the actors not being ready, so it worked out well that way [in allowing more time to get the comics finished]. So as soon as Mark [Millar] and Jeff Wadlow had discussed what they wanted to do, we got to the point where the Hit-Girl story would be the beginning of the film. Now it's just up to me to get things done as quickly as possible. The director has Mark's synopsis already with pretty good detail – not a script per se – but a detailed synopsis so he knows what's going to happen. There's a screenplay already, so having the series done far enough in advance for the director to use some of it, all of it, none of it, but for him to have a choice, is the ultimate goal and I'm just going to try and get the Hit-Girl series done as soon as possible.

Tom Hiddleston spoke to Total Film (via Superhero Hype) about Thor: The Dark World:

I don't want to give too much away. But I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed. Alan Taylor's vision of Thor 2 is utterly brilliant. The journey continues in the most epic dimension and proportion imaginable. It's very, very exciting.

Guillermo Del Toro spoke to Collider about the Hulk TV show, Thor, The Wolverine and more. Here's just one quote:

I had one meeting with Marvel after Avengers and we had a very, very good chat. We have a writer that we want to bring on board, a very, very concrete name. I can't reveal it, but we want to wait for that writer. It's a writer who is otherwise engaged. So right now we are in a holding pattern until that writer becomes free. Then we're going to do a new draft of the script.
