Alex Gonzalez Interviewed
Comicus Interview with Alex Gonzalez:
Comicus: How did you get the role? And How Long Have You Been taking part to the shootings?
Alex Gonzalez: I did an audition in London, and few days later I had an interview with Matthew Vaughn. Although my character is not one of the protagonists, I spent the whole time in the movie locations, that is four months in London, three weeks in Georgia and a couple of months in LA.
Comicus: Does the movie character of Riptide have something in common with the comics background characters (Marauders, Sinister, etc.) or has he been made over completely?
Alex Gonzalez: We are not going to see Riptide's background in the movie, nevertheless it was very useful for me as an actor. Regarding His Powers, Almost everything like he does in the comic, Basically he can control the wind.
Comicus: What kind of technologies did you use to realize his powers? Were They All digital effects or did you use traditional visual effects too?
Alex Gonzalez: A big part of the powers was made with visual effects, but also with traditional ones. For example, when I create the tornado, you will see myself spinning very fast on some sort of table machine (wich is very dizzy).
Comicus: Can you tell us if the director Matthew Vaughn invited you to make Any reference to Some stories In Particular That Came Out on the "X-Men" series regular?
Alex Gonzalez: Not really. As in the comic, he is a villain and Belongs to the Marauders.
