Producer and Writer Alex Kurtzman, who with Roberto Orci, are part of the reason films like “Star Trek” and “Transformers” have been so successful, spoke to Collider about some of their upcoming projects.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Well, we’ve seen the [first] movie. You always go by your gut. That’s the best you can do. You go by what you feel, and you say yes or no based on what it inspires in you. All I can tell you is that, when I saw the movie, I loved the world that (director) Marc [Webb] had created. I think Andrew [Garfield] and Emma [Stone] are incredible in it. They’re amazing! And I love everyone at Sony. Producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad, and everyone there, are so protective of their Spider-Man. I just have so much respect for them. We just saw it and we were excited. When you’re a kid and you’re a superhero lover, the holy trinity is Batman, Superman and Spider-Man, so to be able to take any of those and play with it is a huge joy.

The ‘Van Helsing’ and ‘The Mummy’ reboots

Yeah. It’s cool! There’s been such a tonal shift, in the way audiences go to movies, particularly these big movies. I think a lot of that had to do with The Dark Knight and the success of The Dark Knight. Suddenly, it became about, “We want The Dark Knight version.” But, whether you end up doing The Dark Knight or not, I think what’s cool about that is that it’s only grounded superhero stories, or big mythological stories in more reality. That’s really what The Dark Knight did, and that was the turning point there. We try to do that on Trek. It’s exciting, doing Van Helsing and The Mummy. They’re both exciting, for those reasons.

The guys recently wrapped Gavin Hood’s “Enders Game” and are also the creative noggins on TV’s “Hawaii Five-O” remake.
