The voice of Lois Lane in Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons is provided by Laura Bailey. Tyler Treese, editor-in-chief of ComingSoon, chatted with Bailey. Bailey talked about Lois’ part in the movie and her preference for Persona 4’s Rise. On October 18, the movie will be released on digital, Blu-ray, and 4K.
Ah, to be young and in charge of averting global catastrophe! According to the official summary of the movie, that is the weight that 11-year-old Jonathan Kent and his reluctant young sidekick Damian Wayne deal with.
Jonathan Kent discovers his father is Superman and that he possesses repressed superpowers on his birthday! He also meets Damian, the current Boy Wonder, and the legendary Dark Knight. Will the two brothers develop into the Super Sons they were meant to be when they are forced to work together to defend their loved ones from an aggressive extraterrestrial force?
In this movie, which depicts Lois and Clark as parents, we get a pretty fascinating look into their lives. Although Lois is undoubtedly a wonderful mother, Clark can’t possibly be present at all times. What about this portrayal of the characters caught your attention the most?
Laura Bailey: I believe it was wonderful to witness this point in the narrative where Lois and Clark, as parents, had to figure out how to… I don’t want to reveal too much of the plot, but I needed to find a way to let go.
I urgently want to safeguard my child at all times as a parent. That is conveyed in the narrative. You get the impression that Lois and Clark only want to be there for Jonathan and protect him from harm. Therefore, it’s wonderful to witness this point in time where they must have confidence in Jon’s talents.
Alongside your partner, acting is always fantastic. Since Travis plays Superman in this movie, you’re even married. What does it indicate that you also included a husband and wife in the film?
It was a lot of fun. It simply felt really genuine. Obviously, the dialogue is excellent. It seemed as though we were acting out our own lives in some kind of alternative world because Jeremy [Adams] did such an outstanding job.
In a few sequences, Lois demonstrates that she is still a talented investigative journalist. How important were those action scenes in demonstrating her genuine contribution to the story? She does more than simply help her son; she also participates in activities.
Yes, I agree that it was fantastic. Lois has always had a lot of talent. I appreciate that in this story we didn’t lose that. Later in the movie, when I read that sequence, I laughed out loud, and as we were filming it, I was shocked that we were given so much latitude. I couldn’t wait to see it animated and see how everything came together. It was great fun.
The movie’s antagonist is hilarious, and later on, we get to see Lois in a more evil light. What a great dynamic it was to present a distinct side of her while slightly changing their voice.
I adore playing bad guys. It’s so much fun, and as a villain, you frequently don’t get to hang around for very long since the heroes end up defeating you. Because the dark component is always enjoyable, it was a lot of fun to play Lois in that other, eerie form.
Speaking of not sticking around for too long, you provided the voice of Lois in the film Injustice, which thankfully has a happier ending for her. Was it merely a warm-up role for you?
Just a tiny, pre-warm-up of intense melancholy? It excelled. At the time, I was quite excited to play Lois. I was eager to tackle it because I believe the Injustice plot to be legendary as well. Nevertheless, it was good to see a happier environment here despite all the drama and intensity.
The movie has amazing visuals. How impressed were you when you finally got to view all the scenes together? It has to be among the most visually appealing DC movies I’ve seen.
Actually, I made the same statement. I was astounded by how fantastic I think it is. It’s just so beautiful, especially seeing it on that enormous screen with the sound as loud as it was. Travis and I got to watch it on our own and then again during the screening at New York Comic Con. It was a lot of fun, and the audience seems to love it as well.
