It's really hard when you start debating whose at fault, the actor or director. In theory, because the director has chosen you and is literally telling you how to stand, what to do with your hands, how angry or cool to be... It's always their fault.

But I don't think it's fair to blame Bosworth for a bad Lois but not blame Spacey for a bad Lex.

It was ALL about the way they were written in the script. I think a Lois with witty dialogue, less 'mood' shots and more banter with CK would have been a lot better assesment of Bosworth's acting. I think she probably would have done a lot better.

Superman: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana. humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
Flash: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
Superman: "To catch them if they fall."
