If you look at the mythology of aliens, there’s a lot about gold. It’s about them coming for gold; whether that’s a simplification or not. If you think of ‘Chariot of the Gods,’ there’s this reoccurring theme of gold.
The fun of superhero comics is findingways to turn the pieces that you know so that they’re suddenly about things that you want them to be about, as long as they’re true to the core and true to the DNA of the mythology.
There’s something about the superheroes and the idea behind their relationship with humans, whether it’s a metaphor for the better part of ourselves, or the more flawed part of ourselves. So it seems to really be our own pop-culture version of Greek mythology.
I don’t think working in superheroes is slumming it. I’m proud of this form. I like this. There’s nothing inherentlymasculine about power fantasies. There’s nothing inherently masculine about superhero comics. There’s nothing inherently masculine about mythology. About science fiction.
We’re all about pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps, et cetera – I think that’s a harmful mythology, that the choices that we make and the things that we do in our lives are not connected to anything else. So I’d like to help to debunk that.
I love Pushkar because of the Pushkar Fair, which happens every fall – it’s this camelfestival, with ornately-dressed camels, camel races. But the reason I truly love this city is the Hindu mythology behind it.
Here’s the deal with ‘Bastard.’ I loved that show, and for me, it was such a palate cleanser, going from writing urbanvernacular and crime to, essentially, iambic pentameter. I loved the mythology of that world based on history, but what it came down to was money.
Israel is too attached to America, too influenced by America. It should be connected to Europe. America is based on mythology – the free man, the individual, the open frontier. Europe is more conscious of history. Take Britain and Shakespeare. You shape your identity through history.
From as far back as I can remember, I always loved the King Arthur stories, fairy tales, mythology – things like that. So it was very natural for me when I came to write the ‘Prydain’ books to sort of follow that direction.
In this age of vampires, what I love about ‘True Blood‘ the most is that it’s a post-modern take on it. ‘Sookie Stackhouse’ seriesauthor Charlaine Harris and ‘True Blood’ creator Alan Ball turned that whole mythology upside-down… It’s not just about vampires. It’s about a lot of different things.
The stuff that I learned on ‘Sons,’ the education of how to tell stories, was part of that mythology. It’s hard to look at it and go, ‘Oh, if I knew this, I would have done it this way,’ because the fact is I like to think that all that sort of unraveled as it was supposed to.
I was born to playHercules. I have loved and honored the mythology over the years – since I was a kid. When I first broke into Hollywood, ‘Hercules’ was one of the movies that I – not chased, because I didn’t have the power to chase anything – but always had in the back of my mind.
Do you know what a skinwalker is? It’s a thing in Indian mythology. There are certain people born with this gift, and they’re able to actually get inside you and mess with your feelings and with your mind. And if a skin walker chooses to get a hold of you, there’s not much you can do.
Mediaeval mythology, rich and gorgeous, is a compound like Corinthian brass, into which many pure ores have been fused, or it is a full turbid river drawn from numerous feeders, which had their sources in remote climes.
It is not history, theology or mythology that interest me. It is the fact that history, theology or mythology could have alternative interpretations or explanations. I try to connect the dots between the past and the present.
I walk the streets, take the train, it’s real simple. Some actors create their own mythology: ‘Oh, I’m so famous I can’t go places, because I created this mythology that I’m so famous I can’t go places.’
I took physics, and lo and behold, there’s a lot of physics in ‘Lost.’ I think for most people, liberal arts educations are more abstract, but for me, it’s been a chance to apply the things I’ve learned more directly. I also took some Folklore and Mythology classes, and I think that a lot of that influenced me.
