This Lois has seen the kind of man Clark Kent is from the get-go and she likes what she sees.
I guess overlooking CK and going for SM was what we got in the Donner/Lester films, and maybe early on in the comics. Still if I understand correctly in the early 1990s comics Lois was engaged to CK before she knew he was SM, and while in L&C it never went that far, she clearly chose CK over SM. I guess SR was largely a throw-back to the old way, but for the last 25 years, generally Lois does notice CK. MOS Lois figures him out faster than anyone else though. Hmm, although L&C did have a point where Lois was infatuated with SM and despising CK.

If I'm not mistaken, I think writers have often had Lois fall in love with the persona of Clark that was viewed as the overall "real person" and not just the disguise. Hence why Lois was shown being in love with "Superman" back in the golden age since Superman was portrayed as the real person.

And I think the explanations with Lois crushing over the Superman persona during the period when Clark was portrayed as the real person was due to Lois viewing her crush over Superman as harmless since Superman was this larger than life character in her eyes that was seemingly unobtainable whereas Clark was literally right there and very real for her, thus being more cautious in order to avoid heading into a potential heartbreak.

Well, I was in for a shock yesterday. I had TBS in the background as I was getting ready for work and then I saw the film, 'The Wedding Date' starring Debra Messing as she tries to pass off a man from an escort service as her boyfriend. Well, I saw the bride in the film and couldn't place her immediately as I was only half-paying attention. Then I realized it was Amy with her natural blonde locks. She looked very pretty in her dress, too.

I was so excited about Batman/Superman but I fear for Clark and Lois now.

this movie is making me bipolar

Maybe we'll have a different kind of triangle..what if all of this time, it's not Clark/Lois/Bruce..but instead....the Bromance vs the Romance???

Lois/Clark/Bruce?? Oh snapp....

Or Lois will investigate Batman, thus finding out that he is Bruce Wayne. Then SHE will tell HER new boy toy who The Dark Knight really is.

It would also be a nice way for her to reveal in the story a small part of Bruce's origin; on how Lois found out that Bruce's parents were murdered before him when he was young, hence why he's like the way he is.

What if Lois finds out about Batman's identity in this one too?

I actually like the part in Batman 1989 when Vickie investigated Bruce's past and learn so much about him (I don't like the movie overall, sociopathic mass-murdering Batman isn't my thing). Something like that could work in WF. Maybe Lois confronts Bruce about it herself and they have a character building moment.

She will have the two greatest superheroes on the planet by the balls, since she would know their biggest secrets.

Well, at least we can look at a potentially new bright side. If Goyer and Snyder get this right, then they'll just have proven that we can have an attractive looking hero and and an attractive looking female lead appear in the same film and not have them hook up with each other or present any romantic-like scenarios between them.lol

I thought Captain America and Natasha would have that as well, but it seems like that's not the case anymore as seen by the Winter Soldier.lol

Scarlett Johansson describe Cap/BW in TWS as an "intimate friendship." There's a set photo of them kissing. Make of that what you will.

lol; well maybe I should have been more clearer in my last post. I meant, in the sense where, since the positive assumption here is that Lois and Bruce won't have any "intimate" like scenes and that their relationship will be strictly platonic, especially with her being involved with Clark, this could just show people that not every filmmaker will take the cliche route of having their female lead in intimate situations with their male costars.

Female characters that come to mind that have fallen to this cliche are:

1. Mary Jane
2. Elizabeth (Pirates)
3. Bella (Twilight)

etc

True, but I've never actually seen Snyder (for all of his faults) go that route. Also, Gwen, Peggy, BW, and TDKR Catwoman go against this cliché.

Exactly. Those are some of my favorite female leads within comic book films.

I think that as long as Snyder and Goyer don't try to pull a Harvey Dent on us with Batman's role in terms of trying to show parallels on who the better hero is, thus needing to add Lois into the equation as a potential love interest for Bruce, then we're good and Lois will not have fallen into that cliche writing.

They'll probably but heads over what happened in MOS (Batman will not approve of killing Zod, no matter how justified it was at the time).

Well as long as that hero rivalry doesn't involve both pursuing after Lois romantically then I'm good. That's definitely going to be the deal breaker for me.

Anyways, I'm still hoping that what Goyer mentioned about Clark and Lois's development for the sequel a few weeks ago holds true.

lol; a part of me is conflicted if I want to see Lois being the one to learn Bruce's secret so easily in this film like she did with Clark's in the last film.

Oh well, whatever happens..happens.

Lois, listen Clark and Bruce, you work for me know, I own your asses. Try anything funny and tomorrow the entire world will know everything bout you, including the fact that you still sleep with the teddy bear that your mom bought you when you were three Bruce.

The only thing left is to give Lois her own female friend to converse with as well but since Selina won't be in the film, that really limits things.lol

It looks like Lois will be the BW of this WF's film.

Have Lana come to town and befriend Lois, or maybe Kara (please).

lol; well I doubt we'll see Kara in the WF's, and if Lana had such a small role in MOS, I doubt we'll see her as well.

I mean unless Lex has "Mercy Graves" in the film, I think it's safe to assume that Lois will be the only major female character in the film that isn't family to Clark.

And I'm definitely leaning more against the idea that Lois should be able to learn Bruce's secret so easily, let alone before Clark does.

It's not that hard to figure out if you really sit down and think, Lois can do that. Sarah Essen suspected Bruce right away in Year One and listed all of the obvious clues that pointed to Bruce being Batman.
