Default Re: Amy Adams IS Lois Lane - Part 1

Fairly sure I actually saw Lois described as a "redhead" in the early 90's Superman comics. Not that it really matters. If, say, Christian Bale and most of the other Batman actors don't have to have black hair as Bruce Wayne, why should Amy Adams having red hair be an issue?

I'm still trying to figure out how the character of Lois Lane was somehow treated badly by MAN OF STEEL, especially as related to pretty much any other female character in a superhero film. "She wasn't enough like the cartoon!" isn't really an argument against the quality of the film's portrayal. She's a supporting character in the mythos and the film, and as such, she's not going to get a whole lot of development or a definite arc in pretty much any studio cinema environment. I thought she was a pretty strong character all things considered. Certainly a refreshing change from most "damsel" types. She's a lot more Pepper Potts than Mary Jane.
