There would still be debate. Lana was Clark's childhood classmate and they are the same age.
AA wouldn't be the right match for 'Lana Lang' alongside someone like Cavill. Maybe with Jon Hamm perhaps.
Kate Mara, for example, could pass as someone who went to highschool with Cavill's Clark.

Hathaway had it to a certain degree, with regards to her measurements for Catwoman. Hathaway's attractiveness wasn't debated though.
But seriously, with women like Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Emma Stone etc cast in these films, it's pretty obvious why there's no debate in the other threads.
Most are perfect casting for their respective roles and eye candy at the same time. It's actually a refreshing trend, since the vast majority
of female roles were horribly
miscast in the superhero films of earlier years.
Adams is a more controversial and out of the box choice for Lois Lane, so it's understandable why there's some head scratching.
However, I doubt there's anything her casting could do to affect MoS' performance in a negative light. Especially, if Maggie Gylenhaal was the love interest in TDK, and despite that it still made a billion WW.
In the big picture, she's really a moot point. It's really going to come down to Cavill and Shannon to sell this thing. The rest are supporting.
