January 10, 2005: Kevin Spacey Talks Lex Luthor

IESB.net managed to grab a quick word with Kevin Spacey at a recent "Beyond the Sea" press junket, and asked him about his role of Lex Luthor in the up-coming Superman movie...

    Q: Are you looking at any of the previous Superman films for inspiration for "Returns"?

    A: You have to look at the work that Chris Reeve did on his films and of course the great work that Gene Hackman also did.

    Q: Singer has said that this new film will resemble Superman 1 and 2, can you see that?

    A: I think that it will resemble those films but at the same time it won't. From what I have been told fans of the first films will recognize plenty but this film will also stand alone. Superman has been around way before the films of the 70's and 80's so the world has an understanding of who he is. You also have a great TV show that is showing Clark's younger years and that is shaping up who Superman will eventually become.

    Q: Are you a fan of Superman?

    A: Who isn't? Every child, for the last sixty years, has had their bump in with Superman.

    Q: What do you think of Brandon Routh?

    A: He, like Singer, is a huge fan of this franchise. He has so much respect for the character and also so much passion. I could not see anyone else right now as Superman. Fans won't be disappointed.
