'Twilight Saga: New Moon': Let's see the Volturi already!

Christopher-Heyerdahl_l Just reading this Sci Fi Wire interview with Christopher Heyerdahl, who'll play Volturi member Marcus in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and I realized my patience for seeing an official image of that coven is wearing increasingly thin. "Everyone looks gorgeous and deliciously lifeless," Heyerdahl says. Release the Volturi tease now, Summit! (Or, at least at Comic-Con.)

As for Heyerdahl (Supernatural, SanctuaryStargate: Atlantis), I like where his head is at for his role:

"Here's how I approach him. When Marcus is brought in, he's there against his will. He and his love tried to leave an awfully long time ago. Through a series of tragic circumstances, the love of his life was killed, and he's now being forced to stay and use his powers for the betterment of the Volturi. He's not exactly there, waking up and looking forward to eternity. When Edward and Bella come walking in, his ability to sense the power of their connection is something that wakes him up, brings him back from the boredom of that eternal life and sparks something in him that brings Marcus as close to excitement as he can get. That idea has to be contained and expressed as little as possible to his rather power-hungry captain-in-arms, Aro, which makes for a rather interesting conflict. You might not know it, but Marcus is pretty darn excited by this love that he witnesses. At the same time, it causes him great pain with the memory of what he had and lost. It was very complex to play, especially when you are doing it with so few lines. It will be interesting to see how it is cut together."

What do you think of Heyedahl's take? And more importantly, are you ready to see an official Volturi image already?

For more impatient Twilight Saga: New Moon coverage, head to EW's Twilight HQ.

    what i am ready for is for twilight to go away

  • Katie

    I’m ready for EW to get over its juvenile Twilight fixation.
    You see one Italian mafia vampire, you’ve seen ‘em all. Just picture the actors in a coma with a little makeup on, and you’re there.

  • whyamIhere

    Wow, the twilight haters are the first to post! And why do you read about something you don’t like-are you masochistic? I don’t read about American Idol-never watched it. So if you don’t like it and don’t read it or watch the movie, then why would you come here? But, I agree with Mandi, lets see something we haven’t seen yet-bring on the evil!

    • Jennifer

      Personally not a Twilight hater….more a feeling of indiference. Regardless, I understand the above. When EW reports excessively on Twilight, they therefore do not report on other items. I think the EW coverage is excessive and would like to see some more variety.

      Also why do you all want soooo many spoilers?

  • Carrie

    It’s a shame that some sour people have to rain on everyone else’s parade. If you’re not interested in “Twilight”, why click on an article about the upcoming movie? I avoid things I don’t like…Anyway, I really like Heyerdahl’s take on the character. It shows that he did his research because all of that stuff about Marcus isn’t in the books. He’s a very talented actor and I’m glad they gave him the role. I’m also waiting for an image of the Volturi. Why is it taking so long? Filming is over. We got to see an official image of the wolf pack, which was fine. Now, I’d like to see what the Volturi look like.

    I agree completely with the other comments. Please EW, stop giving this heap of crap franchise all this attention. Those WAY too many covers might have sold – but trust me, those are not your regular subscribers/readers.

  • kristie

    when I read these crap books, I really did not get all that about Marcus. I mean, reading what this guy has to say about the character is amazing. How did he get all that from reading those crap books???

  • PeterBilt The Nature Boy

    Its just overkill. i understand liking something and then a hater(like myself in this instance) comes along and wishes it would go away. But seriously EW, lets try and give something else its due for once. Oh and quit sweatin Amy Adams too!!!!!

  • Silv

    I add my 2 cents’ worth to the haters – if you don’t want to read about it, don’t – and why then do you waste your time posting?
    Mandi, I’m with you – and I like Heyerdahl’s take on this too. New Moon can’t get here soon enough!

  • jess20

    Ok I totally agree with Carrie! If people don’t like Twilight, then stop talking about it for a change and pick up some new hobbies. I can’t stand those who only want to put down the interests of others instead of finding some of their own!

  • jess20

    Ok I totally agree with Carrie! I don’t know why people who don’t like Twilight keep bashing it. If you don’t like it stop talking about it already! I don’t understand why some people insist on putting the interests of others down instead of finding some of their own.

  • Jane

    I have to give the guy credit for attempting to flesh out a character that is, like most secondary characters (and a few primary characters), window dressing. At this point, I’d rather see few more CGI-type clips so I can feel better about that awful wolf animation. Like someone else said, the Volturi probably aren’t much to look at, just the actors in pale makeup and contacts.

    • aubrey

      I am reading the frist book!

  • PeterBilt The Nature Boy

    Hey, lets make one thing clear….PeterBilt looooves everyone. So like what you wanna like ladies and dudes.

  • Emily O.

    I’m impressed by his thoroughness in researching his character. An interesting take on it and should be awesome.

  • Kirsten

    I love that Christopher is thinking about the complexities of his character. This makes me even more excited to see the Volturi onscreen. I love that even actors who play secondary characters are taking their roles seriously. It’ll make for a more well-rounded film.
    I’m crossing my fingers for New Moon!

  • Brooke

    Don’t sweat the haters, my fellow Twilighters.
    Every franchise has haters, its just that, since EW writes A LOT of articles about Twilight, the Twi-haters have more of an opportunity to whine and complain.
    Anyways, I’m beyond excited to see a Volturi promo pic!
