Actress Rosario Dawson talked to MTV about her skimpy outfits in the Frank Miller adaptation. “There’s a lot of nudity, male nudity — at least in the comics, not so much in the movie version. But the two kind of match. The men have that stereotypical leather-jacketed, big-gun voiceover thing going on. ‘I’m in so much pain and I have to do this thing and it’s gonna cost me my life.’ You know, there’s a nice juxtaposition between the two characters [Dawson’s Gail and Clive Owen’s Dwight] and how they both kind of go and do the same thing in the movie, but they each do it in a very feminine or masculine way. The men can be very sensitive in their voiceovers, while the women don’t have any voiceovers. They just go ahead and do what they have to. And I don’t think that there’s ever a moment where you suspect that these women would not be able to handle themselves in any situation. They’re femme fatales, for sure, which is cool.”
Actress Devin Aoki talked to Sci Fi Wire and said, “The environment that Robert and Frank created out there was easy,” Aoki said. “It was sort of seamless and really enjoyable. You’re working with actors who are brilliant, and who are talented, so you start to sort of believe the scene material and stuff. All of my scenes were shot with green screens. You show up, and you sort of basically go into the same set every day, the same stage. You’re surrounded by this bright green color, and it could be sort of difficult to imagine the things that will be surrounding you once the movie’s up on the screen.” She also let slip some relative spoilers, so watch yourself.
IGN’s FilmForce has updated their rumormongering to say “according to our insider, they stressed that there is only one draft of the screenplay but that it is, a la ‘X2,’ being worked on by two different writers. They also informed us that there are no new female leads in it, and that the villain will NOT be either Shaw, Dr. Trask or Mr. Sinister. And don’t bother asking: they’re not telling us who the villain is!”
