December 16, 2005: Kal Penn Talks “Superman Returns”

MTV.com have interviewed Kal Penn about his role as Stanford, one of Lex Luthor's henchmen in "Superman Returns". Here's part of what he had to say...

    Penn acknowledges that people from across the world have been approaching him for months, trying to extract any tiny tidbits of information. "There's so much I can't tell you," he laughed, apologetically.

    As the film (which opens this June) continues to evolve in post-production, all Penn can do is wait. Like many others, he says he was blown away by the movie's recent trailer, and says it was indicative of the way the film will tap into the Superman mythology. "It is really gonna be a great film," he insisted. "The history of Superman too, is one of the quintessential American films. To take it from when it was a comic book way, way back, and taking the history of it and then to re-launch it now with people who understand the history of it, and obviously it's a huge budget film with special effects, but it's also a story that's close to everybody's heart. For me, it was a perfect combination of something that has a lot of artistic merit and something that has a huge commercial appeal to people."

    "You can see how everyone's really looking forward to this film, and I can't wait to see it myself," he concluded, possibly imagining a team of lawyers advising him to wrap things up. "The audience is gonna be blown away."
