Here's the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises on Blu-ray via Coming Soon.

Though Ben Affleck maintains he wasn't approached about Justice League, speaking to Ain't It Cool News, he said he would love to direct a superhero movie:

I wasn't approached about JUSTICE LEAGUE, although I do think the SUPERMAN teaser looked badass. I think it's really the right tone. I think it looked great. I would love to do a movie like that of some kind. I'd love to play with all of the toys that you get when you get to spend that kind of money to build images of that scale. One of my favorite filmmakers is Ridley Scott–ALIEN, BLADE RUNNER–that kind of thing where you're taking a look and you're building a world and you're also combining it with a very grounded story. That's very appealing to me, so I don't know. If you guys have any 3D epics, let me know.

Joe Quesada spoke to Comic Book Resources about Clark Gregg coming back for S.H.I.E.L.D., he also hinted at upcoming Marvel movies:

He plays Agent Coulson. I really can't tell too much more than that because I'd be revealing too much of the show's structure, but we're thrilled to build the show around him. First of all, aside from being an amazing actor, Clark is one of the sweetest guys you'd ever encounter. We cast him as Agent Coulson in the 'Ultimate Spider-Man' cartoon and we got his permission to do his likeness and of course, he voices the character. You've just never seen anybody who's so happy to have this character that's built around him and he' part of this mythology. My best moment is when I said to him, 'Hey Clark, you're going to be in the comics, too. Coulson is going to be int eh Marvel Universe.' And he literally melted, it was like fanboy glee.

Chloe Moretz talked to Superhero Hype about her character's growth in Kick-Ass 2:

I'm growing up with this, so it's just an older sophisticated version of Hit Girl and we don't take away who she was but you see Mindy more in this movie and you see her struggle with who she is and try to figure out what she likes, if she likes this, if she likes that, who is she?
