From Hollywood Crush:
It was a busy few days for the MTV News crew covering 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, but fortunately our hours of "hard work" constituted chatting up the sexiest and most buzzworthy stars in the biz (meaning it's not really that hard at all).
With scrumptious scoop flying left and right all weekend, there's a chance something really great may have passed you by, so here's a rundown of our favorite interviews from the Con:
He won our hearts when we asked about the body type required for his scrappy superhero. Turns out he put a lot of effort into convincing director Marc Webb to not have Spider-Man flaunt Captain America-sized muscles.
"I love the idea of a skinny guy beating the crap out of big guys, just as a personal fantasy fulfillment for myself," he said with a laugh. "I think a lot of skinny guys and skinny girls like me are going to hopefully watch a skinny guy in a red and blue suit beating the crap out of big guys and really enjoy that."
Channing stopped by to talk about his upcoming movie "Haywire," but since this is a comic book convention at heart we couldn't let him go without first sharing who his favorite superhero is.
"My favorite superhero—if it's very textbook superhero—'X-Men' would be Gambit," Channing explained. "My dad's from Louisiana so Creole blood is very deep in my veins. He's just one of the coolest ones. He smokes and has sex with women and blows things up with playing cards and stuff, so it doesn't get any cooler than that for me."
