There's so much potential with Lois and Clark. 75 years worth of it. She's as integral to the Superman mythos as any character NOT named "Clark Kent aka Superman" so the fact that DC is disrespecting her right now just burns me the heck up, it really does. And that's one of the things that I loved so much about this movie is because everyone involved with it really seems to respect and appreciate the Lois Lane character and what she brings to the story. Screw Johns and the idiots who wrote the crap on Smallville pre season 9. Because at least Goyer and Snyder and Nolan respect Lois and respect the pairing and respect Clark Kent enough not to jerk him around so they can pair him up with their personal fanboy fantasies. Argh!
well based on the interviews that Snyder has given, he seems to understand how important Lois is to the Superman mythology and to Superman himself, and it doesn't hurt that Amy Adams is like one of the best actresses out there as well and brings a lot in portraying this role.

I honestly can't think of any actress that can fit Wonder Woman's profile that can match Amy Adam's resume and fan base at the moment.

Like Audrey and others have pointed out, Lois and Superman/Clark is like one of the world's most famous and well known fictional couples, more so than the likes of Peter Parker and Mary Jane and almost comparable to Romeo and Juliet, only with a happier ending.lol

And it doesn't hurt that Snyder was supposedly quoted on saying that his Superman isn't based off of the new 52 take.

My hope for this new take on Clark and Lois is that they are allowed to flourish and develop naturally without the hindrance of uncharacteristic problems and without unwanted third party members getting involved. Hell, for those that are worried that Bruce and Diana may become a threat to this beloved ship, the chances of that happening are very unlikely at the moment..hell there's a better chance that DC may pair up Batman and Wonder Woman together in the live action DC universe.lol

I agree, Herolee! He's sounded so supportive and appreciative of Lois Lane, and respectful of what she brings to the story, that it really does my Lois Loving Heart some good. Especially with the way that DC has been spitting on her. Good lord, I really pretty much despise that company right now.

Me too! At this point, I can't see them doing a love triangle with them. Not with what they have built in this movie right now. These two formed a really strong connection based on mutual trust and belief in each other, not to mention an obvious attraction and appreciation of the other. I think they will explore that more - especially with Lois in the know - rather than sabotage it with any stupid, inane third party crap.

And I'd like to hope that if they DO introduce Wonder Woman in MoS, they will have respect enough for all of the characters to do it with something more than in some shallow, stupid attempt at a triangle, you know?

Agreed; and irony of this is that before the New 52, Lois and Wonder Woman were portrayed on being good friends with each other with no "unrequited love for Superman" from WW being an issue or a factor from what i recall and Batman knows how important Lois is to superman and goes to great lengths to ensure that she's safe for Superman's sake (at least from what I remember).

Yea, one of my favorite stories is the one where Lois is kidnapped and going to be burned at the stake by the Superman fanatics and Bruce comes to save her and he ruminates about her, how she's one of his best students. I LOVE that one!

It's just stupid. The whole blasted thing is stupid. It's just from the mind of immature men to turn female characters who were strong and independent into nothing more than catfighters and mere love interest for the males.

Thank GOODNESS that Snyder and Goyer not only respect Lois Lane, but they respect female characters in general in this movie. Sure, I might have liked a bit more with Clark and his birth mom, Lara. But Lara was still shown as a strong, intelligent woman of her own. Same with Martha Kent. Same with Faora. None of these women were turned into sex symbols or helpless women, just to prop up the male characters. They were all intelligent, strong women of their own, respected for what they could bring to the story more than just some shallow sex crap.

If Michael Bay had directed this film, or someone like him, I guarantee everyone that we would have gotten some dimwitted female characters, shown for nothing but their sex appeal, and always have Lois shown with her make conveniently in tact, along with her hair being in the perfect position at all times.lol

I kind of hope that at some point in the DC Film universe, that if we do get to see a wedding for Superman and Lois, that we get to see the entire Justice League there in their civilian identities, with Bruce serving as one of Clark's best man, and Diana as one of Lois's bridesmaids

What wouldn't I give to have been there when Didio and Lee watched the movie for the first time. MOS's Superman and Lois Lane must be their nightmares come true. I'm pretty sure they've been crying ever since

First off, let me say I loved Lois's role in this film. I just loved it.

I would have loved to see her be the one to figure out how to get the key to go in. Still, I guess some people wanted Emil Hamilton to have a role. I know him first from watching "Lois and Clark" where he starts out as a border-line villain, so I have to admit I never really liked the character.

I also wish we would have seen more of Lois's hunting down Clark, but can see why they only gave us quick shots of that. I am much more tolerant of slow movies than some people.

I also would have loved to see more Lois consoling Superman after the final battle, but I think for the film to work, they actually did that well. I loved the ending of the film.

That said, I do get why some people complain. I don't agree but saying "Lois had a bigger role than any other Super-hero movie love interest ever" does not cut it. Lois is not any other Super-hero movie love interest. She is the one character in the Superman mythos as old as Clark Kent/Superman. I mean in the 1990s we had a TV show "Lois and Clark" (which I am a super big fan of), when have we ever had "Robin and Batman" let alone "Selina and Bruce" or "Vickie and Bruce". Lois is the only non-Superhero who has ever been billed before a Superhero in a show title. True, that was because they were doing a deliberate play on Lewis and Clark (they even called one of the journalistic awards mentioned in the show the Meriweather, as in Meriweather Lewis) but still. Even if Dean Cain was billed before Terri Hatcher, Lois shows up in the show before Clark ever did, and it is possible Lois got more screen time (hard to say, especially since there was so much screen time of them together, it was really a romantic situational comedy with a Super-hero as a character).

One more thing, I love the Lois knows. For one thing, I hate it when they undo her knowing. Some people have said "well, she knew on Smallville", others "she knew in the comics, heck she was married to him for 15 years, she knew in Lois and Clark, she knows in Superman II". Well, that is all true (except in SMII, they erase that knowledge), in the comics she didn't fully know for 40 years (although Shuster tried to put her in the know back in about 1943, but DC killed that comic) and even in Smallville and Lois and Clark they undo her knowing the first time she finds out. Anyway, we have seen a Love Trinagle built for two done every way possible, it is time for a new take. Especially since in Lois and Clark we saw that some will postpone Lois knowing too long if they start with her not knowing. Maybe there it worked she was just so amazed when she first finds out (although even there she has seen too much of Clark and his eating styles, among other things to not be convinced), but later she kisses both Superman and Clark, has him touch her the exact same way on the face in both incarnations, and it does not clue her in. It was time she found out quickly, and it was time she found out by investigating instead of just having it come to her.

Oh, heck, Lois would have been in a bikini at some point, or running around in short shorts in the Alaskan wilds or something! Or she would have been in a negligee during her apartment scenes

Oh, I would love a wedding! I kind of think they won't give us that, but yea, if we get one, I would love to see the whole JLA there. And with the Lois in the comics in a lot of the know and this Lois already in the know, she should know who the JLA are so when they come to her wedding, it won't be weird, LOL!

One of the scenes I seriously want for the next movie, is a "Lois covers for Clark when he has to go running out" scene. Where they're all talking at the DP with Perry or other co workers, he hears something, gives her the signal, and she makes an excuse so he can run out. I REALLY want one of those, LOL!

YESSSS thanks for these!!!
He's def more relaxed in these clips.

And Amy mentioning the other actors she's worked with who wouldn't be behaved as graciously when wearing the suit, go figure, she's worked with Christian Bale, Mark Whalberg, and Joaquin Pheonix

Finally saw it tonight. I fell in love with Lois as expected.

I used to be a shipper for adding in the other ladies, and while I still would like to add in an adult Lana and a Cat Grant, I'm good with them not going the love triangle route; MoS just made it so it would make no sense for a love triangle to happen.

Glad you liked Lois, Magic Majik. I liked this version too. I believed she was an experienced, crack reporter who had won a Pulitzer prize. That's a key like for me. I also liked how she was adventurous - climbing the glacier, and using the laser gun. Adams was excellent. I had no issue with her knowing Clark's secret - it strengthens the bond if anything. And there is a bond between them. It all came together with them smiling at each other at the end, welcoming Clark to 'the Planet'.

I would really like for Lana to be in the sequel, but have Clark be a one-woman kind of guy.

But the only function Lana ever serves is as a romantic rival to Lois. There is no reason to put her in.

Early someone said all Lois/Clark/someone else love triangles happen before Lois knows CK=SM. This is actually not 100% true in "Lois and Clark", they do have Lois sort of dating another guy for one episode after she learns the truth, and Clark is somewhat flirting with another woman, but it is right after he breaks up with Lois because he is afraid her being connected with Superman is endangering her. Don't ask his actions to make sense when the bad guys don't know CK=SM, so them being in a relationship does not really change bad guys going after Lois. In fact if Clark had thought it out, Clark being in an open relationship with Lois should make bad guys less likely to think she is the key to controlling SM.

After seeing how they did the Lois/Lex relationship there, I don't want to see that love triangle again. It only works if Lois does not know, and rejects Clark while being gaga for Superman, causing Clark to do stupidly short sighted things. If Lois knows that CK=SM, how is Lex going to be any competition, especially if said CK/SM is telling her "Lex is bad news"?

Maybe they can go the STAS way, Lois dated Lex at some point in the past but is totally over him. That I can buy, but even then only as long as it really does not play into Lex going after Superman.

I say it works fine as is. I really want it to be a sweet, but adult relationship. When we begin the sequel they are together, no questions asked. We develop and explore how their relationship works, but no confusion that they are a steady and happy couple.

Yea, I'd like that too.

They are a couple, we see them building their relationship together. Sure, they're still working on things and getting things right, but it's clear they are TOGETHER.

And I want them to have Lois be active in the story, like they did in this movie. And if it IS Lex as the next villain, then that will work, because she can be working on the whole exposing him angle and coming up with that proof, while Clark is working on the whole superhero angle.
