Would Russell Crowe do a Man of Steel prequel? Have the Guardians of the Galaxy villains been revealed? How do superheroes take selfies? Is a Guardians of the Galaxy animated series in the works? Which incarnation of Superman is the latest cast into plastic by Hot Toys? Which details about the Deadpool script did Ryan Reynolds reveal? Read about all this and more in today's Superhero Bits.

Note: I'm going to London for the week so Superhero Bits will be going on a brief hiatus. Expect the next installment on Friday. 

Russell Crowe said on Twitter that he's be open to doing a Man of Steel prequel.

Den of Geek (via SHH) claims they can confirm the villain roles in Guardians of the Galaxy. They say Benicio Del Toro is The Collector, Lee Pace is Ronan the Accuser and Karen Gillan is Nebula, grand-daughter of Thanos. These roles will likely be confirmed (or denied) for real at Comic-Con.

Justice League Flashpoint Cyborg

Superhero Hype posted some new images and clips from Justice League: Flashpoint.

Ming-Na Wen spoke to SFX (via SHH) about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. There are a lot of good quotes, but one in particular is she would love it if the TV characters appeared in The Avengers 2.

Hasbro Hall of Armor Iron Man 3

Evil Superman Hot Toys

Ubcotv (via CBM) posted this featurette on the use of language in Man of Steel.

Speaking to Total Film, Ryan Reynolds offered up some of his thoughts on Deadpool:

That movie is alive and kicking, and then it's dead as a doornail. Then it's alive and kicking and then it's dead... it's like the worst relationship I've ever had! The character knows he's a comic-book character, he knows he's in a film, he knows who the executives are at the studio making the movie. In the current iteration of the script, Deadpool is aware of the Wolverine movie. He doesn't say anything disparaging about it but he does at one point play with the Deadpool action figure with some curiosity.
