Did any unexpected lessons come from completing this project?
Michael Dougherty: It's interesting, from a technical point of view, I never realized how long it would take to shoot a scene that involves flying or water. I mean, you're a writer, you write this stuff and try and make it as good as possible. But then we found ourselves on set in Sydney, and it would take six hours just to get two shots.
Dan Harris: The scene where Superman's lifting Richard and Lois out of a boat underwater was probably written in two or three lines and took two or three weeks to shoot.
Is this going to affect what you do on the next one?
Dan Harris: I think we're done with water.
