Welcome back for another edition of News Bits. What is it you ask? The film world can get quite overwhelming at times in the news that releases. Unfortunately some of this news is just too small to warrant a full article. Rather than deprive you of the news, we've created this section. This week in news bits we've got comic books, Comic-Con, trailers, and funny pictures.
Like always, Comic Con International is revealing the schedule of events day by day. It certainly makes planning a lot easier. But that's neither here nor there. There's a lot of panels to cover, so let's just get to it. Check out the pertinent film and television panels set for the first two days of the show after the jump.
Marvel's Comic-Con panel showed off some footage of Chris Evans in the Captain America costume, and thus we get our first look at him.
USA executives announced at Comic-Con that a TV movie prequel for Burn Notice was in the works and starring Bruce Campbell.
After much speculation and rumor circulating the web, Joss Whedon has confirmed what we all hoped: he will direct The Avengers.
