  • "It's a big budget movie that will be an awful lot of fun."
  • "It's extraordinary. You're talking to a guy who basically knows nothing about the lore of that world. But my friend has two girls who are fascinated by superheroes. One in particular is way into them. I'm not kidding. I asked her about Spider-Man and she told me the movies I need to watch."
  • "Not really. I think it's going to be cool and I'm really looking forward to it. Tom Holland is a wonderful actor and, I've got to say, from the early conversations I've had with Marvel, they're really serious about how they approach their stuff."
  • "I have thought about the way things have changed, because I just did Spider-Man, and Marvel? That is one well-oiled machine. It is remarkable how they have got that whole thing covered in a really qualitative way."
  • "Just how efficient it is, in the best sense, and how it operates on a practical level. How organized they are about what they make and how conscientious they are about what they have. They’ve got really wonderful actors for one thing, but I guess that has always been the case. Batman always had great actors surrounding that character. We had Pat Hingle and all these terrific actors. They really get that script is important, and they really protect their lore and that culture and they see the enormity of it, on a capitalistic level."
  • "A great kid, by the way. Setting up future films doesn’t sound easy to do. I haven’t seen any of those movies, though. I just haven’t. It’s not a judgment."
  • "No, I mean, not at all. It’s just a thing. A gig. I don’t mean it’s just a gig, it’s the next job. And you think you can do it or want to do it and in fact I said no, because I couldn’t, it didn’t work in my schedule. Then, I’m glad to say, they kind of shifted the scheduling and it worked out. So it fit in and I’m glad I did it."
  • "Not to give too much away, but interestingly, he is and he isn’t, that character. He’s a really interesting — and more interesting than I thought — villain because there’s parts of him that you go, “You know what? I might see his point.” Really, really. It makes it interesting to play."
  • "Some people see themselves as victims — he sees himself a little bit like that. He probably would have a strong argument that he never got a fair shot — a lot of ‘Why not me? Where’s mine?’"
  • "They are just his boys, you know? I really like the relationship with the Tinkerer – with Michael’s character–it’s great. He’s real funny, so we goof around a lot and make up very, very funny backstories. They’re funny, but then you think, 'Well, that’s probably their relationship. They probably get on each other’s nerves sometimes.’ Vulture has a lot of the ideas and then I just tell Tinkerer, 'Go make that. Go make that for me. I want to have a thing that does all this stuff. Just go make that stuff for me.' And he’s great. I’m having a lot of fun in that relationship."
