"To remind myself of what an audacious, brilliant man Zack Snyder is."
"I love 300 and I’m very flattered to play Martha Kent and live up to his vision. It’s pretty cool."
"I’ve always wanted to raise a good man, I thought that was the biggest challenge a woman could have, and so I get the embarrassment of riches."
"It's daunting, but in a very healthy way. It's like a dare. I have heard and read many people say, 'Do what scares you. Don't run from it, run toward it.' I am delighted to be challenged with the opportunity."
"Zack Snyder said wonderful things in the press release, and I was like, 'Well, it's like he threw down the white glove. Now I have to bend down and pick it up.' It's wonderful, though. He's a visionary, and he'll create his own version. I find that very refreshing. People love to talk about things, and this will definitely be something to talk about."
"The movie's going to be a wild ride."
"I read the script under lock and key, I was locked in a room with the script and was only allowed three hours with it. I nailed it into my memory. I'm really excited. I'm really not allowed to talk much about it, I think, but it does cover the entire range of years, from infancy on."
"When I worked on Hollywoodland, I got to experience sort of the behind the scenes of what it was like for the people who were making the television series that I grew up watching, so it's all very inbred in my mind," "But this is going to be a whole reinvention. A visitation and a reinvention."
"Superman and Batman certainly entered the superhero business from opposite roads, yet they have similar histories. There's the loss of your original family, so they're both orphans. And I don't think Batman sees Superman as human until he realizes that he has a mother. And I think, when Batman makes the decision to rescue Martha, Superman's mother, in a way he's redeeming his own sense of powerlessness he had when he could not save his own mother."
