June 10, 2006: “Superman Returns” Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty Interview

As we reported yesterday, the Superman Homepage's Jeffrey Bridges attended a press junket where he got to interview the cast and crew after seeing "Superman Returns" the night before.

Here is the transcript of the roundtable interview with Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty.

    Press: If you hadn't seen the '70s movies, and today's audiences may not have, what are the dangers of including such references as, "I spent the night with Superman," and we know what that refers to...is that a problem, do you think?

    Dan: Well, I think that specific thing will help sell some bigger story ideas to people if they take it at face value and don't know what it refers to. It was a careful balance of not remaking anything and not retelling the origin and yet slipping enough stuff in there to say, this is what it's like when he discovers his powers, this is what it's like when these things happened in the past. You don't have to imagine they all happened if you hadn't seen it.
