Wow, never seen that picture. She is stunning. My new favorite picture of her.

I would have put a question mark at the end if it were a question. It's a comment about how I view this thread so far and nothing else.

Nobody has to agree or disagree but I'm still going to write it.

Beautiful woman and a solid actor from what I've seen.

And I hate all the "not hot enough to play Lois" opinions going on in this thread. Get a grip of reality please. Or maybe it's most 16-year old horny boys that want something to jerk off too that spread those comments.

I mean I have to say I HATE being accused of sexism. My posts keep constantly getting deleted because I'm so called 'being sexist.'

I'm probably one of the least sexist people you could find. And I hate the way Jak throws around that term like it's some fun game. It's a serious accusation and quite frankly if you're so offended my a couple of comments about a woman's look don't come to a comic book forum then. It's pretty simple.

Anyway, I tried saying Amy might be playing an older 'type' Lois, like one from the 30's or 40's. The one who was a master of screwball comedy and was a quick, fiesty woman of her day.

Then I got flamed and critisized for saying that saying that Synder was going for a 'modern' version of all the characters.

But, I'm sorry but Amy doesn't look like the modern version of Lois, nor could I see her playing THAT version.

I could see her playing a 40's reporter amazingly well, but Erica Durance has been the epitome of the modern day Lois Lane and I cant see Amy going even edgier, tougher and sexier than her. I can see her being the classy newswoman but not the sexy kick-ass heroine that Erica was.


Now I wonder how fast this post will get deleted because it's so called 'so offensive.'

As a 26yr old woman, I find that highly offensive.

Oh yeah, with the internet the freakin HOME of porn, with about 10 gazillion websites, do you really think people wanted a hot Lois to give them something to jerk off to?

Well...the way I see it in comics is that Lois isn't drawn 'hot' as a specific character trait. She's drawn 'hot' because every woman is drawn that way in comics for the sake of selling more comics to their largest demographic. Not to say that movies don't employ the same tactic to some degree....but if it was to the same degree...every actress in a particular film would look like an Olivia Wilde, or Megan Fox, or Jessica Alba, or what have you. Heck, if anything, that would make more sense because Lois wouldn't be strikingly more buxom and glamourous than all the other female characters. But there's a balance of plausibility that has to come into play for a live-action reinterpretation. Adams is certainly attractive, and definitely has the acting chops to do the role (which....let's be honest, isn't exactly Hedda Gabler). As far as her hair and complexion....Cavill, at only a hair over 6', curly brown hair, and normal/medium build has much more to 'live up to', physically, than Adams has for Lois. Yet for some reason, he doesn't seem to be held to the same standard of scrutiny as Adams is.

It only stands to reason that the casting of Superman isn't addressing the same 'sex-object' issues...and that is, to me, an unfair way of gauging the Lois character, unless she really is portrayed as someone who uses her sexuality as a tool or weapon. Is she a temptress/seductress? Does she use sex to 'make her way' in a male-dominated power arena? If not, then her 'sexiness' should come from her character...and in particular, a sexiness that's a bit of an acquired taste considering how career-driven and brass-tacks she's often portrayed as being. Again, certainly attractive at first glance, but not the kind of object of sexuality as just about every woman in comics is drawn as....if we're talking about a live-action setting with 'realistic' sensibilities. In that respect, I don't feel that comics are an appropriate primary reference in terms of physical appearance...and I commend the film production for seeking a more ideal combination for an effective live-action film portrayal.

A woman can be beautiful and sexy without wanting to use her sexuality to further her career or to manipulate men. She could be the kind of woman who just likes the way she looks and dresses to impress herself. Lois Lane in TNAS was beautiful and sexy without using her sexuality to further her career.
I have never seen Lois as being portrayed as the Wonder Woman Catwoman type overly curvy and wearing skimpy clothes all the time. She was a good looking girl who was sexy and caught the attention of men, including Superman, without looking for it, asking for it, or manipulating it. Being a good looking woman who is also sexy does not automatically put you into the character of wanting to use that to help you in your career. Why can't Lois be a good looking girl, who knows how she looks, likes the way she looks, dresses to make herself happy and uses her brain and skills to further herself?

Wow I much prefer serious thought-out responses rather than just snarky responses Kalmart. As much as people think there's a big problem with nasty 'sexist pigs' on this thread, there's just as much discrimination against people who are only talking about the way a character looks.

I think you have to look at it person by person. I mean I would gladly talk about how Superman needs to look, or how 'attractive' he needs to look just as much as I'd say how Lois needs to look.

Yet when you speak about how Lois should look you are automaticaly percieved as being sexist.


The only person I feel is sexist on the Amy Adams thread is Man of Tommorow since he says Lois doesn't hold any importance other than being eye candy.

I, at least LOVE the character of Lois, she's one of my favourite heroines of all time. It's important to me how she's portrayed as well as how she looks.
I don't know, maybe men percieve alot with their vision, or maybe it's because I have an interest in drawing people, but the way someone looks in one of these films is VERY important to me and it has to be exactly right too.

It's NOTHING to do with which sex they are.

Nothing can help how thin her lips are. I thought that went out in the 70s. But that is one thing that can not be helped. A part from that, the picture if fine.

Not necessarily. It's primarily when it's a short comment about not being 'hot' enough, with various comic panels posted as evidence. And if we are using the comics as a reference...again..I'd be much more concerned with Cavill than I would be about Adams.

And yet he ain't totally wrong.

Basically the early 70s version of Lois is what I think is the definitive one. Pretty attractive, but really started being known more for being hard nosed and never willing to back down when she sees something needs to be brought to light.

I'm almost certain that there are variations in lips and other features amongst people being born since the 70's.

I'm sorry, is this some how supposed to divert from the call for Lois to be attractive? Because in that picture she is beautiful.
