NEVER AT THE ADVANCED LEVEL THATIT IS NOW THAT THE SUPER HEROES

COULD ON SCREEN REALLY APPEARREALISTIC AND IT COULD -- YOU

WHY IT'S ONLY NOW THIS THESEMOVIES ARE SO BIG.

TECHNOLOGY AND ALSO I THINK PARTOF IT IS THE ACCESSIBILITY OF

WHAT WE'RE ABLE TO DOAS REAL PEOPLE NOW. WHEN I WAS

A KID I WOULD READ A COMIC BOOKAND WANT TO BE IN A WORLD WHERE

THERE WERE WOMEN WALKING AROUNDIN TIGHTS WITH GREEN HAIR AND

BLUE HAIR AND FOLKS HAD CAPES ONAND THEY WERE WEARING BOOTS.

THOUGHT THAT SCIENCETAKES ITS CUES FROM ALL OF

THE GREAT, ASIMOV AND WELLS,ALL THE GREAT SORT OF FICTION

WRITERS AND SCIENCE FICTIONWRITERS AND THEY SEE SOMETHING

LIKE THAT IN A COMIC STRIP ANDGO I BET I CAN MAKE THAT.

THEY ARE TAKING THEIR CUES FROMTHE IMAGINATIONS OF A GUY LIKE

STAN LEE.

>> THERE'S THAT AND THERE'S ALSOTHE FACT THAT -- I USED TO DREAM

I COULD FLY.

I USED TO DREAM I COULD BREATHEUNDER WATER AND ALL THAT KIND OF

STUFF.

I WANTED TO DO IT REALLYBADLY.

NOW I PUT ON THAT COSTUME AND IFALL INTO THAT MARVEL PLAYGROUND

AND I'M LIKE I'M IN HEAVEN.

THIS IS HAPPENING.I PUT MY EYE PATCH ON

AND I WALK OUT THERE ANDI'M INVINCIBLE, MAN.

>> Jon: THEY CREATEIT REALISTICALLY.

IN THE OLD DAYS A SUPERHERO LIKE

HULK THEY WOULD JUST FIND THEBIGGEST GUY THEY COULD

AND PAINT HIM GREEN AND THATWOULD BE --

>> YEAH.

>> Jon: BUT THE EFFECTS NOWAND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT

SURROUNDS IT.

IS IT -- WHEN YOU ARE DOING IT,WHEN YOU ARE MAKING IT IS IT

TEDIOUS? IS IT --DO YOU FEEL THE

EXCITEMENT OR YOU IN SPANDEX INFRONT OF A

GREEN FLAT AND THEY ARE LIKE NOWTHE MONSTER IS COMING?

>> IN THE BEGINNING YOU SORT OFFELT THAT WAY.

BACK WHEN I FIRST STARTED DOINGSTAR WARS IT WAS JUST A GREEN

ROOM AND WE HAD SOME THINGS INTHERE.

I HAD A LIGHT SABER ANDGEORGE WOULD SAY OK

THERE'S A THING ATTACKING YOU.

I WOULD SAY HOW BIG IS IT?

HE WOULD SAY AS BIG AS ANS.U.V.?

I GO, REALLY.

I SAID HOW FAST IS IT?

HE SAID FAST AS YOU WANT IT TOBE?

I CAN DO ANYTHING I WANT ANDYOU'LL DRAW STUFF AROUND ME?

HE SAID YOU KICK ALL THE ASS YOUWANT AND WE'LL MAKE SURE IT

LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE THE BADDESTMOTHER (bleep) IN THE UNIVERSE.
