It’s Twilight’s last appearance at Comic-Con, at least as far as anyone knows, so we sat down with several of the franchise’s favorite actors – Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, and Ashley Greene – to talk about the final film in the franchise, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
Movies.com: We are currently at Comic Con, the home of western showdowns, superheroes, and action. The end of Breaking Dawn Part 2 is an epic superhero showdown. What superhero reminds you most of your character?
Kellan Lutz: Fighting technique I’d have to say Carnage from the Spider-Man series or Venom. When he gets unleashed, Emmett just tears it up.
Jackson Rathbone: Captain American because of the way he fights, only change it to Captain Texas since that’s Jasper’s roots. In a lot of ways Jasper’s just very technically proficient because he’s done it so many times for just so long. He has a warrior’s mindset. He’s very strong and silent. He’s very quiet. There’s not a lot of superheroes that are very quiet. A lot superheroes are very (in a deep booming voice) “Take that bad guy!” Being clever plays here (points to head) Jasper is much more get it done without the talk. He is a man of few words. You mentioned Westerns. Jasper is the ultimate Clint Eastwood he never blinks.
Ashley Greene: I don’t know. Catwoman, maybe. Catherine Hardwicke made us all take cat lessons for Twilight. Alice is very stealth and nimble.
Movies.com: Jackson, one of the big themes of Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the protection of a child who is entirely innocent. Now that you are a new dad, does that theme resonate with you more so than when you were shooting the film?
