I can't stop talking about this film. I can't. There's so many wonderful things about it. But you, as perry white, sir. Yes. You take this character that's an angry, grumpy guy generally. And you make him so -- he kind of knows what's going on. What was it like to take on that role? I'm a big comic book fan. I'm a big superman fan, like most people are because superman's in everybody. And perry white, I took inspiration from the late ed bradley, who was a guy, who was a great journalist. A great music love. A great man. A man who, you know, had the common touch but walked with kings. And so, you know, as a journalist, I just felt like he was really sort of the right direction for this perry white, if you will. You are incredible in this role. And you know what? We don't have a lot of time. I want to the talking with you. Let's go. We're going to blow through that. We were talking about all of the acting going on here. Yes. You're leading an incredible group of people. The performances turned out in this movie, so much more than a superhero movie. What's your favorite? Henry cavill as superman is incredible. Diane lane and the parents. Amy adams as lois lane is absolutely delightful and really steely and strong. Michael shannon as the villain, zod, incredible. Chris maloney as colonel. He had great moments. Richard schiff has a great moment or two. Why did this film, 75 years, the story. Why does it resonate still? Because superman is in every one of us. Everybody is superman. And everybody can relate to him. We all have some sort of power in us that's greater than we think. Or allows us to be greater than we think we can be. Yeah. There's moments in this movie, when your skin has goosebumps. And the hairs are standing up on top of it.
