People are gonna have to accept it's a mixed bag of reactions in terms of being happy she's cast. If you can't accept anyone not being 100% satisfied then I suggest you don't come to this thread since last I checked you were allowed to voice your opinion in here.

When people talk about the genius of Amy's casting and what we could have ended up with it's always 'I'd rather have a 3 time Oscar nominated actress than some mindless hottie.' I don't think it has to be one way or the other, talent or looks.

I am pretty certain there are actresses out there who would most closely fit 'the look' of Lois more than Amy, be the right age and nail the performance.

Oh, and for ME, pictures like these are kinda how I envision Lois to a modern audience.



Dark hair, tanned, a sharp look about her, not too innocent looking but still attractive.


Over THIS kind of look.

I was a gigantic wilde supporter due to her physically looks to modern lois and i felt she was a solid actress but do we really want to take a gamble on a solid but unproven actress over an oscar nominee.

i am in love with amy adams for lois

Some artists draw her kind of latino/asian-ish for some reason.

We need to move on. There's no point in complaining about something you have no control over.

I was a fan of Wilde...would have loved to seen her cast as Lois. I didn't get that but I'm just as equally thrilled with Amy's casting if not more so

I'm just glad the "mixed" reactions are getting some press. LA Times called the reaction mixed too, in the article I linked in the previous thread.

BUT, Adams as Lois Lane in one film isn't a big deal to me. She can be made to look decent in the role for now.


I still think her role won't be that major in a Goyer/Nolan script. The male characters tend to get the strongest focus, and there's bound to be a much stronger focus on action over romance.

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the Goyer/Nolan script limited the 'romance' to something akin to Bruce/Rachel in TDK, a minor subplot.

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.
That plan/timeline is a total trainwreck and will be a bomb and the box office.

I'm thinking they'll do a JL -- if they do one at all, which I doubt -- without Batman and Superman. No chance they risk ruining essentially three franchises in one swoop.

And they are wrong, as the poll clearly shows. Over 85% positive isn't 'mixed'.

she will be integral to the film. You don't hire someone like Amy Adams to play Lois if she isn't going to be an important part of the film. And I don't think they would recast her in the following movies...recasting Katie Holmes was necessary as she is HORRIBLE! I can't think of one good film she was in that she didn't suck in. Nolan dropped the ball when he hired her...

that would make me sad, because Lois is really such an important character, i can't imagine superman w/o lois lane, and i would hate to have her role watered down. Batman doesn't really have 1 go to female, the closest maybe would be catwoman, but superman and lois lane go hand in hand. i don't think lois and rachel can really be compared.

The world is bigger than the Superherohype.

Nevertheless, I'm glad news outlets are acknowledging the reaction as mixed with the public.

if you try to compare Lois to Rachel Dawes that would be a shame. Now don't forget about Vickie Vale...

imo, maggie gylenhall sucked harder, and had no chemistry w/ bale or eckhart. Rachel was just a weak character all around. maybe good in theory, but in execution.....not so much, and i still don't like that she got the fridging treatment.

I think the only way this is gonna work is if Amy is playing a 31/32 year old Lois and that so is Henry.

The only thing that threw me off track was Synder saying this was gonna be a 23/24 year old Clark.
And normally Clark and Lois are mid to late 20's when they first meet.


Plus, people shouldn't be too angry at a shocked reaction. Henry and Diane Lane especially are more the modern versions of the characters. Martha was always seen as a much older woman in her 60's but in the last 20 years she's been as mid 40's. That's why people expected they would go with the modern versions.

Yeah lemme tell you the public outcry was fierce, that 4.5% minority were about to march on Washington and demand a recount.
