November 28, 2006: TV Guide Interviews Brandon Routh

With the release of "Superman Returns" on DVD today, TV Guide sat down with Brandon Routh and asked him a few questions about the movie. Here's a few excerpts from the film...

    TV Guide: When you were filming the movie, did you realize that there would be too much to fit into the theatrical version?

    Routh: I don't think I did. I think filmmakers are very naive to that, even directors who have done this forever, because they love their story, and they are so passionate about it. And it's hard to imagine not getting everything in there, and that it won't all be wonderful. [Laughs]

    TV Guide: How many times have you seen the movie?

    Routh: I've seen it five or six times.

    TV Guide: How does your view of it change with each time?

    Routh: I notice things I didn't previously. And I'm always entranced by the last 45 minutes of the movie. I really appreciate even more all the work that's gone into it.

    TVGuide.com: Is there anything in particular that jumped out?

    Routh: Sometimes different audiences got different jokes. Maybe because I was watching myself so closely at first, but after seeing it so many times I can notice other people, and Sam Huntington [Jimmy Olsen] has a lot of funny moments. And there are funny lines that Kitty says that just feel different, because maybe I was focusing on Lex the previous time. Little pieces here and there, and then you start to dissect the film.
