    Superman's Posey Talks Kitty

    Parker Posey, who will star opposite Kevin Spacey in Bryan Singer's upcoming Superman Returns, told SCI FI Wire her role as Lex Luthor's girlfriend builds on a similar character in Richard Donner's original Superman movie. At a party for her latest film, Adam & Steve, Posey said in an interview that she gets to wear stylish clothes and carry a Pomeranian pup through most of her Superman scenes as Kitty Kowalski, girlfriend to Spacey's Lex Luthor.

    The role is similar to the part of Eve Teschmacher in Donner's movie. "I'm in the Valerie Perrine part from the original movie," Posey said. "She is ... the girlfriend of Lex, and of course, he wants to take over the world."

    But the character is less evil than one would expect, Posey said. "He wants to destroy the world, and she doesn't want to," she said. "She [has] much more conscience about the world around her. She is into pretty things and money, but Kitty has a heart. And, yes, she has a change of heart. ... She is torn between materialism and love, but Kitty kind of wakes up. It's cool." Superman Returns opens June 30. —Mike Szymanski

    "...kind of wakes up..."

    I hope that doesn't mean she takes the kryptonite knife out of Superman's back so he can save her mother in Hackensack.

    I knew panic would set it. We don't know what she is going to end up doing. I think she will be more of a challenge to Lex than Eve T. was.

    We all know that she won't be saving Superman in this one.

    It's not interesting at all. It's completely expected at this point.

    Won't be long now 'till we see Kal Penn wearing an Otisville shirt...

    Uh huh. Her role is going to be far different than Mrs. T., she is a challenge and sometimes an obstacle to Lex.

    There are many ways she could challenge Luthor, why does it have to be saving Superman?

    It doesn't have to be. I'm asking you what else she'll be doing.

    This will be by far the stupidest chracter in the movie......not only campy, but Parker Posey is ugly as hell and a god awful actress who should not be in a film of this magnitude!!!

    While Im geussing he is also campy ( S:TM retread ), atleast Kal Penn is entertaining.

    I like Posey, I just don't dig the Luthor's GF character, as it's shaping up to be.

    I meant her character is more of a challenge towards Lex both emotionally and intellectually then Mrs T. was.

    It would be really great if Luthor strangles her to death in a fit of rage. Would seriously diminish the camp factor...
