AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

"The Amazing Spider-Man" director Marc Webb got a Twitter account over the weekend -- and to celebrate, he's already posted two new images of the web-slinger in action. One of Peter Parker on a lamppost and another of Spidey in battle with some kind of reptile tail.


Meanwhile, the Oscorp Industries viral website has posted a new video blog of Ryan Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors. (Thanks to YouTube user Superotherside10 for the YouTube version.)

DARK KNIGHT RISES

Comic Book Movie has posted a few more interviews from this month's issue of Total Film Magazine, including one with Anne Hathaway about playing Catwoman.

"It's an incredible role. It's one of the most famous comic-book characters for a woman. But, also, it's Catwoman in this franchise.

"It's hard to talk about Selina Kyle because she's intensely private and mysterious," Hathaway told Total Film. "She has her own ethics, which can involve doing things other people might consider questionable."

Although he wasn't able to speak specifically about his character John Blake, Joseph Gordon-Levitt did note some specifics about director Christopher Nolan and his handle on the franchise.

"He prioritizes the acting in a way that's really rare for such a high-scale, spectacular production," Gordon-Levitt told Total Film about Nolan. "That even amid all these things that are going on, he made sure that the actors have what they need to create an honest performance, an honest moment. I think that's a big part of why audiences love his movies so much, because they don't feel like a bunch of fireworks. It feels like real stories, real people."

Finally, Nolan himself spoke about the conclusion of his "Batman" trilogy and the mysterious ending.

"Our telling of the Batman legend has always been centered on Bruce Wayne's story," the director told Total Film. "We somewhat left the audience hanging at the end of the last film in terms of Bruce's story and we want to bring it full circle and have a complete tale. We've a great ending we've been wanting to tell for some years now. We're just thrilled to have been able to bring our story around to its conclusion."

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY

It's been a while since we've heard anything from Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit," but actor Luke Evans, who plays Bard the Bowman, spoke with Total Film about his character and his experience filming the movie.

"There's slightly more Bard in the movie than is in the novel. Everything in the book is definitely in the film but… [whispers] I'll have my tongue cut out if I say anything else. Let's put it this way – I shoot a lot of arrows…"

The actor also spoke about his feelings when walking onto the set for the first time. "I can't really describe it. When I first arrived I went straight to Bilbo's house," Evans told Total Film. "I saw it on the big screen when I was 21 and there I was, walking around it in costume – a very special moment. I'll look back on that in 20 years and hopefully be as proud as I am now."
