Sound Bite: Charlize Theron – did she get hurt on any of the stunt scenes
No, no I don’t think anybody really got hurt on this. We were, you know we’re really trying to work with the best people in the industry and you try and be as good at being safe and not being silly and just outrageous, and I think we took great precaution to, there’s nothing worse than somebody getting hurt on one of these things, so you try and stay away from that as much as possible.

Sound Bite: Charlize Theron – why did she choose this film
No I understand what you’re saying, and I think exactly for that reason, that was the reason I wanted to be a part of this because I felt like this did not fit into what people quintessentially think of as a movie that should come out at this time for that genre of what a superhero movie is. (talks) It’s just so different, and that’s why I wanted to do it, because it didn’t feel, you know and I read all of these superhero movies kind of get developed around the same time, and also just these kind of event movies, you know, come summer time, and you read them all together, you know they just start to feel very much like what people expect those movies to be and I don’t wanna go and do a movie just for the sake of the genre or the time that it’s being released, I wanna go do movies that I just really think are good stories and this felt like a really good story.

Sound Bite: Charlize Theron – Smith’s track record of films and how they’re unique
Yeah and I think his work as an actor in the last couple of years have made people like me want to work, I mean I really want to work with him because I know Will from 8 years ago when we worked on The Legend of Bagger Vance and he is the kind of actor you know very easily for him right now he could be just sitting back and going, you know what, I’m just gonna like, I’m just gonna let this just go and I’m just gonna like ride in with my eyes closed, and he doesn’t, you know he wants to push himself, he wants to be around actors that he feels will push him and I’m that way I wanna be around actors that I feel will push me.

Sound Bite: Charlize Theron – on Jason Bateman
Yeah I have a history with both of these boys. I’m a huge fan of Jason Bateman. I’m a huge fan of that show Arrested Development, and I just wanted to go and do something that was different and you couldn’t get more different than that show, and a lot of it had to do with Jason. I think he’s incredibly talented, you know, this is a guy that you could give him a script about a poppy seed and he would make it a hit, you know, that’s how talented he is, and I loved being around him, and I look at him like you know like a little puppy dog, I’m just teach me, teach me how to be funny.
