Actress Eva Marie Saint talked to the Superman Homepage about returning as Martha Kent in the sequel. "Ms. Saint revealed that she is indeed signed on for the 'Superman Returns' sequel, but does not know who the main villain will be. There have only been limited talks about what Martha Kent will be doing in the sequel, although she believes that it may involve Ma Kent meeting Lois and Jason."
Actor Thomas Jane was interviewed by Advanced Dark, and talked a little bit about when he expects to load up again. "The problem has always been getting a decent script," Jane said. "We actually have a script that's being turned in this week and we all have our fingers crossed, you know? We'd love to do it. Everybody wants to do it, but we all want to make a good movie. It starts with the script. We've gotta get a good script, and then we'll be ready to rock. The plan is to start the 'Punisher 2' in June; of course, I think I said that last year, too."
