Sixteen years ago, Joel Schumacher took the man who had stolen the show in Heat and Top Gun and transformed him into Batman. Val Kilmer was at what should have been the pinnacle of the super hero movie world. Instead he is remembered for being in one of the most poorly received super hero films that strayed so far from the original vision of the character that many will still shed a tear of sorrow for Batman Forever.
Now, Val has turned to the dark side as he becomes Walker Sloan, an evil scientist of Alchemax. In Spider-Man: Edge of Time, Sloan will become the bane of existence for both the modern day Amazing Spider-Man as well as Spider-Man 2099 from his own time. Take a peek below at Kilmer’s behind the scenes interview as he explains the motivation behind Sload and how he becomes a man who might unmake the world in his own image.
In addition to Val Kilmer, Beenox has released a behind the scenes video with Laura Vandervoort talking about her role as Mary Jane. Vandervoort herself is no stranger to the super hero or sci-fi world after her role as Kara / Brainiac / Linda Danvers on Smallville or Lisa on V. A number of actresses have tackled the Mary Jane role including Kirsten Dunst in the most recent film trilogy and singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb in MTV’s animated version.
Take a look below at Vandervoort’s thoughts on the character as she talks about her respect for Mary Jane. Also get a quick peek at how the story itself not only crosses through time between Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 but the characters themselves even cross eras.
