  • When asked if Amanda Waller is going to appear in other DC movies: "I hope so..."
  • "You know, I enjoyed working on that. Of course you wish it had been bigger and more successful."
  • "But you just don't know. I mean I know we put a lot of work in and I thought it was well done. You know, well-directed, acted, and cast. But, you never know what is going to just grab the audience and they won't let go. So, that particular one wasn't, but maybe it'll come back around. Because there were some real die-hard fans for the Wall."
  • "She'll be great. She'll be great."
