That's only because she's not that well known. Yet.

No, they just complained about Nazis instead, so the stupidity was there, just in a different form.

I honestly believe that Amy will be the best Lois we've ever seen.

Fanboys as a whole tend to be homophobic, racist and sexist. So some of these reactions to Adams is (sadly) expected.

Because who would ever want a 3-time Oscar nominated actress (at this point given that love, she'll win one eventually) who has the beauty and acting talent to pull off Lois. Nah, let's just get another "body" instead.

Like MJ in Spider-Man, LL has been depicted by so many artists in so many different fashions over the decades there is no definitive one. She's been drawn to look like a supermodel, a slightly mature businesswoman, a hardass a la those CSI chicks, kind of mousy, and so on.

Margot Kidder is the most well known though.

Some people are just okay with this, some people are just 'dealing with it' and some feel it's a complete mis-cast. Amy is a wonderful, talented and successful actress, I have no doubt she will have a long and amazing career, but I think they should have given some other girl a break.
She's got the part, they aren't going to recast her. It is what it is.

If she wasn't suggested by fanboys on a forum, and she was cast, then that is a very good thing. Casting threads are for ****s and giggles. Nobody is really taking this seriously.

Looking at the poll on the SHH front page, looks like this thread just has some REALLY squeaky wheels. LOL @ the idea of a recast.

So what is that saying about comics? You are what you read?

4.5% are against the casting according to the poll in this thread. 13.5% on the front page. Not exactly an outcry of negativity.

Have you read this article? For all the shallows...

I also believe she'll be great.

I distinctly remember him being brought up/porposed for Bane in the DKR forum before he was even cast....most notably right after Inception was out. Some brought up his role in Bronson as an example of how muscular he could get, as well as LOTR as examples of how to make someone small look big and vice versa. I have a feeling that the character will be reinterpreted in a a way where it's not as important that he's not 7 feet tall or what have you.

People who are against something are the most vocal. Look at Christian and family groups. They never shut up.

Even myself, who isn't fond with the casting choice, is OKAY with it.


Lois Lane is ultimately not that important in the big picture to care one way or the other.

Disagree. There are many other factors independent of Lois that can make or break the film, yeah, but Lois apparently is going to be a big part of this film. I wouldn't think you'd cast someone like Adams if she's not. And when she's on camera, she'll certainly steal the show.

Yet the Lois character means very little in the big picture if we're leading into Justice League as we learned today.

Like I said, it's possible we'll only have to endure Amy Adams as Lois Lane for this one film, which is fine by me.

Couldn't be more thrilled if Robinov's plan plays out.

The one human female that actually forces Superman to let down his wall of stern boy scout doesn't matter?
