Have you ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?— Jack Nicholson
Risky Super Villain quotations
As a child, I had a deck of Marvel top trumps.
You can get top trumps with racing cars, or fighter planes, or football players... I had all of the Marvel superheroes and super-villains you could get, and I used to play them with my friends. They were all listed according to their height and weight and agility and their super-powers.
I really didn't like Batgirl. I was like, "No, if I'm not gonna be Batman, I'm not gonna play." Maybe they could write an evil female super villain who takes over Batman, and nobody knows.
Whats great about The Avengers is that its the next step.
Its not just superhero fights super-villain and superhero wins. Its about superheroes that come together and interact. Its a clash of the egos. You could do Avengers 1 without a villain, just with all these guys coming together. They could sit down and just have a discussion.
Magneto has a whole lot of complexity to him.
Emotionally, he's coming from a very damaged place. I like the ambivalence of it. I want the audience leaving the theater wondering, asking the questions themselves rather than being spoon-fed like a lot of these super-villain characters.
A lot of artists are scared to do that, they are scared to step out on their own. What am I the super villain of western Canada is that what I am? Is Classified the clean cut, staying true to his roots, hip hop guy from the East coast that stays in his lane and he made it big staying true to what he did and didn't make corny music? Then that is what he is and I am proud of him for that.
Moriarty is arguably the most famous super-villain in terms of literature.
I'm not particularly an expert on the genre.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but usually you see most of the super-villain in his villainous role. He's the Green Goblin, or whatever various bad guys in Batman, or something like that. It's the excessive, larger than life, cartoon-ish, costumed character that is the personification of evil and has to be destroyed.
I can't tell people how much fun it is to be a super-villain.
Being a villain is cool, but being a supervillain is a different level of exciting.
You can't really do a lot of research for being a mass manipulating, murdering super-villain.
I love the idea of a super villain that doesn't wear a cape, that doesn't wear a super suit.
