"My son hated it because Superman died. It made me very happy that he took it so personally and that he has such a strong connection to the character (laughs)."
"It was too long, though, and I admit, I dozed off a tiny bit, but maybe that's because I was tired after a lot of traveling."
This incarnation is so dark compared to the lightness of the Superman I've grown to know and love, as seen in the two versions that I grew up with — Christopher Reeve and myself. That's the only difference to me."
"[This movie] inhabits a dark world and Superman is such an alien in that world. Wonder Woman is really easy on the eyes, and I love that they introduced the other guys, the Justice League, because those stories are very cool. I loved how they did that.
But I don't see how you have a Justice League without Superman.
It's odd for me to watch that because of that incredible strength that he possesses.
Whenever I played him, I played Superman as if I had a secret that nobody else knew. That secret is that you could always win. It seemed that Superman didn't have that in this film. That was different for me.
I don't like seeing him get kicked around so hard. But what I did like a lot is that Superman was so heroic in this film and sacrificed himself before anything or anyone else. That is definitely in tune with the Superman that I know and love.
