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.


Why do you assume they're not going to change AA's look? Throw dark hair on that, and it's basically what you're after.

Nolan dropped the ball when he hired her...
Even TDK had some big name actors, like Freeman, in lesser supporting roles.

All I know is the studio blamed the "love" focus for SR's disappointing returns, and wants an action focused film.

It isn't Goyer/Nolan's style to write a romance focused film either.

Early rumors indicated the script focused on a huge Kryptonian mythology as the main driving force of the story.

We'll see how everything plays out but I don't think Lois' role will be as huge as everyone is expecting it to be.

And Goyer/Nolan may have written Lois Lane the same way.

We shall see.

Though I couldn't care less as long as they do a great job with Clark Kent/Superman, like they did for Bruce Wayne/Batman.... which they will.

Well, you've already told us that you consider female roles to be nothing more than fan service...

Lucius Fox was a big time character...how can you say otherwise?

honestly everyone i've talked to IN REAL LIFE has been caught off guard by this casting. responses i received varied from "who?", "the one i always confuse with the one from the wedding crashers?", "i can't see it", "i don't like it", "they could have done better", "really???", to "i like her but lois lane.....?" not one person has outright said they liked this casting, although no one has said they absolutely hated it either. but most of the people i talked to were not superhero fans, so take that as you will.

however when henry was cast those who'd heard of him were ecstatic and those who had not were pretty pleased after seeing a picture of him (tho there were a few who were all "a british superman????" and quickly got over it)

Sorry, I meant Clark. I corrected the post. I'm sure Snyder said Clark would be 23/24 and had not yet created Superman's identity. And that he'd be in Africa alot like in Birthright.

So you can see where I thought they were going with Lois as well....

Yeah, basically the authors trolled some fanboy forums and found people arguing and came to the conclusion reception was mixed. In reality, it was almost universally positive.

I hate this new argument that the casting is "ok" because "Lois isn't important." WTH? Lois is THE most integral love interest in ALL of comics. She doesn't come and go like Catwoman, and she's not part of a long line-up of love interests like Peter Parker has. She's always there in Supes' life, and a big part of it. She's not gonna be small potatoes in this movie, and she'll probably be sticking around for more, so we might want to prepare "endure" this great actress' portrayal for a while. If you don't like the casting, that's obviously fine, but using that as an argument to demean the character is just plain silly. Lois Lane is as iconic as they come.

Also, from what I've seen, the reaction online isn't nearly as mixed as Henry's casting. Now THAT was some mixed reaction (all because most people don't know who he is or they object to his nationality). I love both choices, so I'm happy. But this isn't nearly as mixed as certain other casting decisions lately (Hathaway being another). Everyone I've talked to IRL has been initially shocked and then reacted positively. Largely because I don't think I actually know anyone who doesn't like Amy Adams, lol.

Snyder didn't.

It was the casting call. It said Clark would be early 20s when he returns from Africa to Smallville to embrace his Kryptonian heritage and become Superman.

It never ceases to amaze me that when somebody is cast, the people who don't like it can always find a large number of people who agree with them.

Wow!!! That sounds like a massively unbiased and random sampling of people.

i think i can speak for most of those who are not 100% on board with Adams that hair color is not what's throwing us off. its kind of insulting to insinuate that we can't visualize her with dark hair, besides we've already seen a bunch of great manips of her with dark hair already.
