Yep, and dare I say he sees some of Martha Kent in her as well. But yeah, Lois has never been about looks, but rather charisma and spirit. Anybody saying and casting different has misunderstood. Again, Olivia Wilde.

But yeah, Adams seems to have just that. Charisma and spirit.

It just makes me so damn happy
Agree. Almost wish they got an ugly actress. Almost.

And yeah, the Lois/Supes dynamic in Birthright is one of the major reasons it's my favourite Superman store.

First you have the 'wow, she's really awesome' moment, and then I think it's all cemented in that 'she's not afraid' line... which it looks like could work really well in this film if it's centering on how much he cares about people being afraid of him

Oh thanks. Sweet quote! Yeah my fav part of the trailer is them together. Such a perfect cap. Amidst all the 'crazy' action they showcase there's actually a romance at the heart of it. Suddenly it shows real stakes and conflict (emotional).

I'm guessing that scene is they both agree to board Black Zero together at Zod's request. Supes would be vehemently against putting Lois in danger but she's telling him 'its ok'. That's my reading of it. No doubt totally wrong though. I wish I knew the true context.

Yes please. Might we finally see a CBM that actually has a good and sincere romance to all that teenage-fluff we're usually accustomed to. One that's essential to the character and the story.

Yeah. That could be the whole thing. Assuming she is trying to track him down (with the evidence of her articles about Smallville meteorites, and her being at the tornado, Alaska). I'm thinking Clark is in hiding after revealing himself at the oil rig incident, seeking cover so as not to be recognized from it. Because his biggest fear is people will fear him (like his father said). But Lois finds him and she is not afraid. She is inspired. And she encourages him to not live in the shadows but find an outlet doing what he can, saving people.

That's exactly how I read it too, i'm sure that's what it is. His worried frown and her pleading reassurance.

That all sounds awesome.

I know some people may not like it, but i've always enjoyed stories where Lois is not just 'there' at the origin of Supes, but actually contributes to the kind of confident hero he becomes.

Olivia Wilde as Lois? Just wow... That's who we would've gotten from someone like Bay who's luckily NOT directing.
Then go watch The Fighter.

Agreed. Building on this it could be she helps him find his place to dwell amongst everyone else too and lands him a job at the Planet and helps him come up with the secret identity. I think it could really work. Clark confides in her that he doesn't know his place in the world. Surely the "My father believed that if the world..." line is being told from him to her. And Lois actually helps him. Plus hopefully this makes for some raw moments between them. Lois seeing him at his most vulnerable and still seeing him for who he truly is. I hope we really feel for the 2 of them and want them to just be together. Thor and Jane they will be not!

Amy Adams received her 4th Golden Globe nomination today for her role in The Master. In a recent interview, Amy spoke about The Master and her upcoming role as Lois Lane in Man of Steel:

I grew up with Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, so I didn’t want to try and be that version. Zack [Snyder] said that he wanted to play for more realism. There’s definitely still banter [with Superman]. She’s tough, modern, and more contemporary. There’s also a lot more action than I’ve seen in my career.

Yeah, I really like her minimal makeup, natural look and professional attire in the trailer. It really hammers home Lois as being a female professional who is the best at what she does and not someone like Cat Grant who trades on her feminine wiles to get ahead. As others have said, I think it will help establish that Clark/Superman falls for Lois because of who she is, not because of what she looks like. I'm so glad we have Amy because, as her body of work has shown, she can pull off spunky and driven without seeming cold and mean. I just wish there was more of her in the trailer.

I'm just glad that Lois is not a mother with a child in this one.


That's one of the major flaws with Superman Returns.

I think if they got it right, i'd even be okay with her knowing his secret that early on.

I think if she nails the character and her acting is spot on that it will ease some of the doubt out there that her look is too Lana and not enough Lois. Overall social media has been pretty keen on the trailer but there are some doubts out there in terms of her having the right look for Lois. I really hope the script is strong, the visuals are amazing so far for sure!

Too bad if that happened we wouldn't get the amusing Clark-Lois-Superman love triangle.

Agreed. And Amy's not a redhead in this particular film anyhow; she's dark blonde now I think.
