I relate to the feeling that Da Vinci was often plagued by the idea that what he did wasn't good enough, that he was his harshest critic. He'd sometimes destroy what he was working on.
When I was a kid, I read many more Marvel comics than I did DC. As I got older, in high school and then in college, I started reading more DC.
During my career I’ve enjoyed re-invigorating and contextualizing classic characters that are relatable to contemporary audiences.
Da Vinci always seemed like the prototype Tony Stark to me.
I love comic books. I was weaned on them, so it's not like it's a stretch for me, but I have other interests, as well.
I've long said that comic books are the modern equivalent of our Greek myths.
It's ironic: In movies, the most successful films of all time have been sci-fi or fantasy. By far. But a lot of people won't even read science fiction books.
I think I regard any history in quotes, because just like science, we're constantly revising science, we're constantly revising history.
I'm a big comic book geek and I've been reading comic books since pretty much since I was five or six in 1971 or something like that. So, I mean, I read it all and there's certainly a lot of different iterations of Superman that I personally have enjoyed more than others.
I believe when you're writing film or television, you can't rely on a crutch or rule that exists outside of the narrative of the film.

Once we start seeing video games that have more memorable characters, you'll see better movie adaptations.
I always felt that if we ever encountered an alien species, they wouldn't look like us or even be humanoid, like 'E.T.'
I think if we ever encountered aliens, even communicating with them would be really, really difficult.
I like telling stories of imperfect people because most people are imperfect.
Mysticism and the supernatural are embedded in the show - it's called 'Da Vinci's Demons' for a reason, and it's not just metaphorical.
I grew up reading comic books, pulp books, mystery and science fiction and fantasy. I'm a geek; I make no pretensions otherwise. It's the stuff that I love writing about. I like creating worlds.
Superman is not as innately cool as Batman.
I honestly love nothing better than digging into a really good serialized show, whether it's 'Breaking Bad' or 'Game of Thrones' or 'Justified.'
I did three or four weeks of work on 'Godzilla' it wasn't a page-one rewrite or anything like that. The term is 'script doctoring,' is what I did on it.
