In Marvel Comics, the worst thing was always that your loved ones could be attacked, or you could be horribly beaten in a knock-down, drag-out fight, but in the Superman comics, you would be run out of town with people throwing rotten vegetables at you and waving a sign that said, ‘Superman, Who Needs You?’
When I read the news that Wonder Woman was going to be resurrected for a blockbuster movie in 2016, ‘Batman vs. Superman’, it made me excited – and anxious. Would the producers give her a role as fierce as her origins – and maybe some shoulder straps – or would she just be cartoon eye candy?
It is a part of my personality, but not the full circle. That character that you see is ‘The Situation.’ It’s not Michael Sorrentino. You’re seeing ‘The Situation,’ almost like Clark Kent and Superman.

At home, I’m daddy and a husband. There’s no Superman’s cape. I’m changing diapers, giving my kids baths, and coloring ‘Angry Birds’ and playing games with them.
John Carter was also one of our first recognizable superhumans and there is little doubt that his extraordinary physical feats inspired Superman’s creators. Remember: before Superman could fly or turn back time, he was nothing less than an earthbound crime-fighting John Carter in tights.

My character in ‘Batman v Superman’ isn’t supposed to be Japanese, but director Zack Snyder said he’d seen me in ‘Wolverine’ and had to get me in the film somehow. Hearing that was like music to my ears.
I’m no superman.
It’s not like I walk around being Superman in real life. But when you read the script and put yourself in the position that Superman is in – I mean, he’s always saving the planet, for God’s sake. When you realize that, it’s not difficult to take the gravitas of the situation and make your voice do what it needs to do.
I grew up watching Wonder Woman; I grew up watching Batman. I grew up watching George Reeves as Superman.

I think Eric Bana would be a good Superman. He’s got that look. I think he’d be a great Superman.

‘Sunshine Superman’ was a pioneering work that for the first time presented a fusion of Celtic, jazz, folk, rock, and Indian music as well as poetry.
The accident was a horrible thing – but that horrible thing made Chris, at the end of his life, Superman. It’s a happy irony if there is such a thing. I’m proud to have known him.

I don’t think of myself as Superman, but if a genie came up to me now and granted me a wish to take my legs back, for sure I would take them – but it would take some time to accept.

Whereas Superman is a godlike guy from another planet and Batman is this mysterious, unknowable billionaire, everyone in ‘Spider-Man’ is human and flawed.
What’s special about Superman is that he will always make the right choice.
I think that Curt Swan, when he did Superman for the longest time, became the definitive Superman artist, and everybody got it. That made him very, very special in the annals of comic books.

The red ‘Baywatch’ swimsuit is iconic. When I had my first fitting I guess it felt a bit like Superman putting on his cape for the first time.
Graphic novels are all about fantasies. Superman and Batman started it. It’s like a reaction to environment around you. You desire to do things in comic books or films what you can’t do in real life.
What Christopher Nolan and I have done with ‘Superman’ is try to bring the same naturalistic approach that we adopted for the ‘Batman’ trilogy. We always had a naturalistic approach; we want our stories to be rooted in reality, like they could happen in the same world we live in.
Prior to ‘Action’ and ‘Justice League 1,’ there was no label ‘superhero’ for a superpowered being. It’s really the emergence of Superman and the Justice League that gets the public comfortable with the idea of people amongst us who have extraordinary power and that they’ve agreed to be our champions.
As a kid, when most of my friends were into Superman and Batman, there was only one superhero who held my interest – The Green Hornet.

When you feel sad, it’s okay. It’s not the end of the world. Everyone has those days when you doubt yourself, and when you feel like everything you do sucks, but then there’s those days when you feel like Superman. It’s just the balance of the world. I just write to feel better.
When I was cast in ‘Batman v Superman,’ I was sent a huge stack of comics. They provided a ton of information about Cyborg and how he has evolved as a character over the years.
When I got the job with ‘Superman,’ it felt like somebody threw me into the ocean. I was just trying to figure it out, to figure out how to tread water. Lucky for me, I’m part of a great team.
