1 [on exploring possibilities for developing a series based on a real historical figure] As soon as [Leonardo] Da Vinci was mentioned, I went online and saw that he's the most recognized figure in history other than Christ. So I said, 'Well, sounds like he's the guy we should do a show about', just in terms of pre-existing awareness.
2 People think of Leonardo Da Vinci as this sort of professorial bearded figure who painted 'The Last Supper' and the "Mona Lisa'. If you drill down a little further, you see he's a guy who invented some crazy inventions. But if you read his actual notebooks - at the least the pages still existing - you get a pretty good sense of his character, And there were a lot of contemporaries who were writing about him. He was a fascinating, mercurial character - a but of a braggart. He clearly had a chip on his shoulder because he felt he should've gotten more respect and credit for things he'd done. He clearly was a dilettante, a procrastinator, a practical joker. He had a sense of humor. He published a book of jokes during his lifetime. He was bisexual. He was arrested twice and put on trial. He came in contact with a lot of interesting people of the time, from Machiavelli to Borgia. He was also kind of a jerk, in the way a lot of geniuses are. He was selfish and he had feuds. He was a friend of Botticelli's, but was dismissive of his artwork. If we get there - but this would probably be in season four or five - he and Michelangelo hated each other. They got into fistfights. He was not this dry, kind of beard-stroking guy. He was this vibrant bigger-than-life character. You just think, 'My God, this guy had enough crazy things in his life to base ten shows on'.
3 I was immersed in comic books and hero figures when I was a kid. I like writing about characters that have really big responsibilities foisted on them
4 [on possible ideas for a Man of Steel (2013) sequel] I think that the challenge for us moving forward is how to depict Superman in a world like this. Could he solve hunger in the horn of Africa? What would he do with the Arab Spring, what would he do with Syria? Partly you could argue, how could he NOT intervene in Syria? But then, is it a hornet's nest if he intervenes? Does he have the wherewithal, or the knowledge, to intervene in things like this? It's easier for Batman, he exists in his own pocket of the world, he's not violating sovereign airspace everyday.
5 [on why no live action superhero movie of Wonder Woman has been made so far] I think Wonder Woman is a very difficult character to crack. More difficult than Superman, who is also more difficult than Batman. Also, a lot of people in Hollywood believe that it's hard to do a big action movie with a female lead. I happen to disagree with that. But that tends to be the prevailing wisdom. Hopefully, that'll change in the next few years. Who should play here (sic)? No idea.
6 (On Demonic Toys) Simple. Charlie Band said that if I wrote a film for Full Moon I could direct one. I wrote the film in 8 days based on a poster Charlie had previously designed, then decided I was insane to think I could've busted my ass on such a ridiculous directorial debut I think Charlie was going to give me 18 days to direct the thing. A sane move, I think.
7 [on his upcoming project, The Flash (2018)] "We're going to go into the 'Speed Force' and a lot of the cosmic aspects of the character from the more recent past, trust me, we're going to do a lot more than have the Flash run on water and create vortexes. I have a guy from M.I.T. helping me with all of this. We're going to be playing with relativity, Doppler effects and all kinds of things like that. Audiences will be amazed."
8 [on Batman Begins (2005)] "Chris was a real taskmaster about justifying everything in the real world, He kept saying, 'It's gotta be grounded. It's gotta be real'."
9 I love casting against type and doing things you wouldn't expect, because I think you get more interesting performances that way. Hollywood loves to pigeonhole people and there's nothing an actor loves more than to do something different.
10 We definitely set it up and kind of provided Warner Bros. a rough plan of what the next three movies would be. So it's not like we'll do one and then figure on the next. There is a road map of what the next three movies would be and who the various characters would be. [on Batman Begins (2005)]
