That was a deleted scene and Kidder is clearly older than Reeve so no matter what the movie says I don't for a second buy that Lois was younger than Clark. That's bad casting of Lois if she was supposed to be younger.

I enjoyed that deleted scene, especially as Lois' mother was Noel Neill.

It was a cute scene but I was never a fan of the running effects. I know it was 1978 and that was the best they could do but I still don't like em and usually I love old school visual effects.

Apparently that was the best they could do in 2006 as well. SR used the exact same effect for little Clark running through the corn field.

Super speed is hard to look realistic without slow motion.

And don't forget, her father was played by Kirk Alyn.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, but it's such a blessing to have gotten her on board with this project as Lois; at first I wasn't sure to make of her casting due to the fact that I had never really consider her as a option at first, but the more I think about it, the more it makes so much sense. Brilliant casting choice by Snyder.

I think everybody was shocked by the choice of Adams to play Lois Lane because of Hollywood's sexist view that women over 35 are old maids and the fact that she is gasp, older than her leading man. But if you watch her films you'd know this woman can do anything and that's why I was immediately on board.

Yes. In the theatrical version, as teen Clark runs pass the train, a young girl sees him and shakes her mother to waken her....in what was originally a deleted scene, but now inserted back in the DVD, she wakes her mom up (Noell Neill) and says she saw the boy run faster than the train, her mom says "Lois Lane, you have quite an imagination." and then her father (Kirk Alyn) says "Lois...read your book."

So you have the very first Superman and Lois Lane with cameos in the movie.

Isn't there some sort of horrible age paradox with that scene?

Amy lok like she could play a 50 years old one day and a 20 years old the next. Its just versatility.

Nah, she looks quite age neutral already, good acting does the rest.

Too bad Amy didn't win the GG. And too bad she again won't win the Oscar. It's too bad because she deserves it. She was better than Anne Hathaway who was good but overrated (losing a few pounds and singing well seems to outweigh a better acting performance). Oh well. Maybe Amy will win the 5th time....or 6th. Or maybe never
