My favorite incarnation of Lois thus far.

My perfect Lois would be a combination of that version and Teri Hatcher's. I'm not sure that's what we'll get with Adams, but I am very confident this version will at least be more likable than Bosworth and Kidder because, as I've said before, that's Amy Adams' superpower.

I will agree the Animated version was easily the best take on Lois so far. I'd go as far to say it was the only good take on Lois thus far that really made the character respectable. She really had her own purpose on that show and it wasn't simply to be Superman's love interest.

Adams doesn't have much competition to make her version of the character stand out as the best. Thankfully I don't think they'll market Amy's Lois as swinging on stripper poles and sleeping with her editors.

That incarnation is perhaps one of my favorite. I'm not sure we'll see that with Adams, but I'm hopeful. Anything close to that would be awesome. Since LL is my fave comic chick...I will be very disappointed if she is done wrong.....ESPECIALLY SINCE SUPES/LOIS/CLARK HAS NOW BEEN DONE AWAY WITH IN THE COMICS!!! (hate you for life DC)

The only thing I'm iffy on with the animated series Lois was that she had a romantic history with Lex (I think this might be true for the Byrne interpretation as well).

The New 52 Lois will end up with Clark eventually. They are soulmates.

Amy Adams will be perfect in this film. I'm certain of it.

I think the New 52 is setting up Superman and Wonder Woman as soulmates. I'm curious to see if this carries over into the Justice League film.

Yeah, i'm still hoping that the JLA film is cancelled or shoved since any JLA film spells doom for MOS imho.

The only DC franchise that I want to see in 2015 is Amy and Henry returning for a MOS sequel.

JL seems to be Warner Bros' biggest superhero priority at this point. They want Avengers box office.

It's a shame that both MoS and JL were forced into existence due to the incompetence at Warner Bros.

There's a much bigger chance of JL sucking, since it sounds like a very studio-driven project and doesn't have Chris Nolan involved.

Ah, but the circumstances that got them in production were very different. WB was contractually obligated to start shooting a Superman film, or face paying damages to the heirs for not making the film. They lucked out when Goyer & Nolan pitched the reboot to them and got the ball rolling on it. (I do question that mid-June 2013 release, especially since WB had plenty of good dates to pick from before the studios leapt on the prime ones.)

JL is purely a knee-jerk reaction to the massive success of The Avengers, not something WB was forced to do out of contractual obligation. It had been in development, but killed after TDK made so much money. They revived it a year before Avengers came out, and accelerated development after the former made a killing.

Apples and oranges, man.

I'm aware of this, but both of those situations reflect the incompetence at Warner Bros. These films came into creation out of money and greed, instead of an actual interest in celebrating and doing justice to these characters.

It's rather disheartening when you think about it.

Hence why I'm hoping that iF MOS turns out to be a big success that they'll cancel their attempts to make a JLA film in 2015.

The chances of that happening are incredibly unlikely. They want Avengers level box office for JL. I think MoS will be lucky if it does as well as Batman Begins in June, although the 200+ budget will make that a challenge.

Well if they can't find a director and solid cast by then they'll have no choice. Plus, I'm willing to bet my college funds that JLA will not be a success and will bomb even worse than GL and John Carter did. If a JLA movie is made and ends up killing the MOS franchise as well, then Warner Bros. should never be allowed to make a comic book film again. Either way, we'll be the only ones that lose from all of this.

Oh I agree that JL has all the makings of a disaster, just as Justice League Mortal did.

The only somewhat promising aspect is the Gangster Squad writer supposedly writing it in a very grounded way.

JL needs to feel drastically different from Avengers in tone and approach in order to succeed and not be seen as a ripoff. Especially with Avengers 2 coming first that summer.

Indeed; nevertheless,

Right now, I'm hoping that if MOS is successful that MOS won't be the last time that we see Henry and Amy play their iconic roles on the big screen.

He's still pretty fresh to the whole thing so unless someone with clout says otherwise, they'll have him be Supes in that flick.

I don't see why he wouldn't, unless the general public as a whole hates him in the new flick, and he's re-casted.

I'm not too hopeful, but god I want that.

Right now it feels like some kind of tragic alternate universe in which two soulmates somehow don't end up together and end up with other people.

Why does she have to end up with anyone? It's funny how the character can't seem to escape the stigma of forever being a 'love interest' first and foremost.

I'm hoping the New 52 finally gives the character room to grow into something more.

Aren't most movies made that way now, to generate profit and possible franchise opportunities? It's not like it was back then, where studios let filmmakers make original films or took chances on adapting riskier works. WB needs to find their Whedon or Raimi for JL. Both directors had a passion for the characters they were adapting, and wanted to do justice for them.

Instead, they're just cruising for 'safe' names and not taking chances on folks like Whedon (who only had one feature film to his name prior to The Avengers). You saw what happened when WB let Whedon go after they didn't like his WW screenplay... now he's working for Marvel Studios now and has the biggest superhero film under his belt.

There's a certain parallel between Joss Whedon and Alan Horn now... they both ditch WB for greener pastures at Disney.
