Gary Oldman, actor, would like to make a request. He represents the many actors who have spent years perfecting their craft, and is troubled by athletes who think they can just waltz onto a set and turn into actors. What, do these game-players think acting ability develops by consuming a magical packet of Teddy Grahams at the craft service table?

Fortunately, Jimmy Kimmel gave Oldman a platform from which he could deliver a message to athletes and actors. His speech is a passionate plea for each to concentrate on the things they’re really good at doing. Watch his message below.

When can you play DC Universe Online for free? Is there a way to incorporate superheroes into an icy cold beverage? Does The Avengers have as much heart as it does action? Which member of the X-Men says he’d love to come back for X-Men 4? Would you like to see a fan made teaser trailer for Man of Steel? Who is the most violent comic book superhero and how can you find out your own superhero name? Read about all of this and see some awesome action scenes from The Dark Knight Rises in today’s Superhero Bits.

Love Film spoke to Gary Oldman about Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy and at about 2:30, they get into the security around The Dark Knight Rises. Thanks to CBM for the heads up.

Starting in October, you can play the DC Universe Online game for free. Of course it’s kind of limited and designed to draw you in to pay but, hey, still pretty cool. Thanks to The Daily Blam for the heads up.

Because the only thing you were missing in your life were Batman and Superman ice trays, That’s Nerdalicious points out that they’re coming.

Nicolas Winding Refn continues to talk about how much he wants to do Wonder Woman. He said the following to The Playlist:

I would love to make ‘Wonder Woman. I would be the best at making ‘Wonder Woman.’ I was born to make ‘Wonder Woman.’ To do a movie about a universe where women are more powerful then men—this appeals to me very much.

io9 culled together a bunch of Batman desktop wallpapers from his comic, movie and video game incarnations. Head there to see them all, but this is one by Jock. The one at the top of the page is by Andy Jones.

Comic Book Movie came across this fan made Man of Steel teaser trailer by Julian Francis Adderley.

Chris Evans spoke to The Huffington Post (via Latino Review) about The Avengers and really played up the heart of the piece:

I think they struck a really good balance. There’s obviously action, you’ve got all these super heroes, there’s gonna be constant battle, I think every ten pages, there’s going to be some sort of action, but you can have all the action in the world, if you don’t have some substance, you got nothing. I don’t want to sh*t talk other movies, I know a lot of other movies like that where it’s all action and no heart. It’s not easy trying to bring all those characters together and find a story, but the best thing about Joss is that Joss is a fan, Joss is a comic book guy. It feels so nice working with a guy that is well, the people I am trying to please is Joss. Joss is one of those dudes. And if Joss is happy with the dialog, if Joss is happy with the wardrobe, if Joss is happy, then I’m happy. Because he’s Comic-Con, he’s one of these dudes who would be in the audience geeking out, so if he’s happy, I’m happy.

James Marsden, star of Straw Dogs and Cyclops himself, says that he’d love to come back for X-Men 4 for in this clip from MTV.

Bleeding Cool has an update on the case of the disabled Superman fan who was robbed of his memorabilia. They’ve made an arrest.

Movies like this are the reason I’m able to stay optimistic about remakes. The original BBC version of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy starring Alec Guinness is a great piece of work. To some fans, it is unimpeachable. But based on the two trailers we’ve seen, the new version looks absolutely fantastic.

This is the second trailer, which gives up a little more of the story and shows off the cast in much more detail. (Includes Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ciaran Hinds, Mark Strong, Svetlana Khodchenko, Toby Jones, John Hurt, Stephen Graham and Kathy Burke. Do you have chills? I have chills.)

We also get to see a lot more of the period recreation that is displayed in the same cold, almost threatening style we saw in director Tomas Alfredson‘s last film, Let the Right One In. (A film which, ironically, was set to be remade even before it hit the States, angering Alfredson.)

Check out the great second trailer below.

Here’s an alternate YouTube trailer embed, in case you don’t like the MSN one above.

Nothing but good things to say about that footage. The tension in it is delicious; the way that Gary Oldman is just standing at the center of this developing maelstrom is so impressive and, in a way, intimidating. And is that a little bit of the X-Men: First Class score used to buttress this edit? Sounds like it.

The man he knew as “Control” is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn’t quite ready for retirement-especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley traces the breach back to Karla-his Moscow Centre nemesis-and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy will premiere at the Venice Film Festival; it then hits the UK on September 16 and the US on November 18.
