March 14, 2006: Eva Marie Saint Talks Filming “Superman Returns”

Eva Marie Saint was in Los Angeles promoting her new film, "Don't Come Knocking" this past weekend, and spoke about her time filming "Superman Returns", in which she plays Martha Kent.

"That was fun," says Saint. "I was in the very beginning of that, when they first started shooting..."

"Brandon Routh... We had this emotional scene... He has to come home after five years... He's been gone [and] we play this emotional scene the first time really working together. It went on for about an hour and then the cinematographer said, 'I'm sorry, I didn't get it.' They didn't get the film... Brandon said, 'Oh,' and I said, 'No, no, no. Just take a deep breath, just make believe you're doing Broadway [and] you're going to do the same right over again. That was a rehearsal. And so, we did the scene, but I remember Bryan Singer, the director, saying, 'Well, that cost us about $600,000 dollars, that hour..."

Other than those early scenes in Smallville, Eva Marie Saint also appears in Metropolis, visiting her son at the Metropolis General Hospital. "Well, at the very end. We're sworn to secrecy... I couldn't read the script... Let's keep it secret... [I'm] at the very end, because he goes to the hospital... and I'm concerned about [him]...and I think I meet Lois Lane. I don't know whether that's cut or not..."
