Q. Was bringing to life some of these extraordinary comic
book characters part of the allure for you?
A: Sure, among other things, but there were a lot of
things that drew me to this project. Mainly, that it was with
people who'd familiarised themselves with the territory. Fox had
a big success with X-Men, our producer, Avi Arad, had big success
with Spider-Man, so if you're going to try and tackle a comic
book film, you want to try and be in company that knows their
Q. If you had a super-power for the weekend? How would
you enjoy it?
A: I've always wanted to fly, it would be a beautiful
way to see the world. I'd travel, see the Grand Canyon, Niagara
Falls, Mount Everest - what wouldn't seem beautiful from 500 feet
in the air?
Q. After the box office success,
are you now locked into a new franchise and facing the possibility
of more movies?
A: I couldn't be more excited. I look at it as a second
chance, a round two. I feel like everyone involved, especially
myself personally... you're always your own worst critics; you
see your performance, you see the way the film was structured
and what our final product was, and you know immediately what
we could have done to make it better.
So if we do number two, it's just exciting to know exactly what
I personally can do to bring my game up. I think everyone involved,
not just actors, but writers, special effects guys, everyone,
can see what worked and what didn't.
It's almost like the second one can do nothing but improve.
