I haven't seen a superhero movie pic in awhile that hit those things right on target. Looking forward to the movie.

I Don't Like It At All. She looks as much like Lois Lane as Kristin Kreuk looked like Lana Lang. And, at 38, she's way too old for Cavill and an introductory movie.

Believe it or not, Adams’ age has been discussed a couple of times already. Put it this way: at 38, Adams can play 34; and at 29, Cavill can play 32. So the “two-year” difference is nothing (and probably accurate to the mythos). As to possible sequels, cross that bridge when you come to it.

Pfft, 50 is the new 40, provided you take care of yourself. No doubt world class dietitians and personal trainers help. Look at Brad Pitt. Look at Halle Berry.

No he's right. We need to start a petition to have the role recast and all her scenes reshot before the movie is released.

Someone get Megan Fox on the phone right now.

I still can't believe there are people who believe that after 35 actresses should just go away.

A Man can be 50 and get love interests that are 20-25 years younger but god forbid a woman in her late 30's/early 40's is the object of affection for a man who is 5-10 younger than she is. Bottom line is that's sexist, if a man can start his first franchise film at 38ish so can a woman.

Johnny Depp was 39 when the first Pirates came out and nobody was complaining about his age and RDJ was even older when Iron Man came out. Women over 35 are not useless and should not be forced to go away just because some foolish people think that all women should be 18-25 years old forever. She can easily play in sequels.

Spot on, on everything. If anything, I love the fact that it's the other way around this time. Thumbs up for women over 35, I even think some women look even better when they're more mature. Hell, take a look at Halle Berry at 45 or something, she's gorgeous.

Exactly, couldn't agree more. And Lois Lane needs that mature look. Amy looks young and fresh, but also mature.
I am not kidding when i say i am almost more excited to see her as Lois than i am at seeing Henry as Superman.

Yes ultimately she is the right age to play this particular role. If she was playing a Super model I would complain because Super models aren't 38 years old. But she is playing a reporter and plenty of them are that age, especially the most acomplished ones.

I'm not saying that age is never a factor because it is but tell me why it's unrealistic for a female news reporter to be in their 30's? A 22 year old award winning reporter Lois Lane is unrealistic as it gets but a Lois in her 30's is decidedly not in anyway unrealistic or unusual.

And just to show that I'm not on a high horse, the other day I said that I'd prefer an actress in the 24-32 age range (I'm sure I'm getting my age range wrong but I don't remember exactly what I wrote) for Wonder Woman. That's not dislike for older actresses, I just want a younger more inexperienced Wonder Woman if they ever make a solo film.

AMEN.

I'm beyond sick of this BS where men are allowed to age and continue to have value and worth and be considered worthy of love and sex and iconic roles well into their 50's but the minute a woman hits 35 she's deemed "too old." It's misogynist crap and I'm so proud and glad that more and more women in Hollywood are fighting about against this.

The bottom line is that we live in a culture that trains young guys from an early age to treat women like absolute crap as they get older. This is learned behavior. And it's absolutely disgusting. It's a mass of privilege and sexism and it's intensely problematic and insulting.

And you know what? Amy does look really young. She has gorgeous skin and a gorgeous figure. But you know what? IT IS OK TO AGE. IT IS OK TO LOOK YOUR AGE. We have to stop this crap where we say that women look great "for their age" because we NEVER do that to men.

I don't want to hear, "Amy Adams looks gorgeous....for a woman in her late 30's" because that's a freaking sexist qualifier. She looks gorgeous. Period.

Men (and women bc some women are unfortunately stuck in this sexist rut too) need to get with the program. You want to grow up treating women like absolute crap and having no understanding about what actually MATTERS in a person and what is truly valuable in terms of the person you choose as your partner? Fine. Go for it. But you're missing out. You're missing out on what actually matters in life which is what is INSIDE someone.

That's all these arguments with Lois EVER boil down to. Alot of sexist crap. Over and over again this idea that Lois can't be possibly be older or isn't hot enough or isn't all these superficial things because so many dudes have been raised in a culture that taught them to value women first and foremost as objects as opposed to human beings with value from within. And then these same dudes call themselves fans of SUPERMAN, of all men---the one guy in the world who is supposed to be BETTER than all that s**t.

Also...I'm beyond sick and tired of the "Kristen Kreuk didn't look like Lana Lang, Amy looks like Lana Lang" BS.

God forbid there was a TV show for a younger generation for years on end where Lana Lang was a woman of color. GOD FORBID. A whole generation of kids great up with Lana Lang as a freaking Asian woman. And you know what? I think that's freaking GREAT. I didn't particularly love Kreuk as an actress but I ALWAYS thought it was great that she was bi-racial because I always welcome diversity in everything I watch. So please save me this BS that focuses only on the appearances of these women in the most shallow of terms.

The irony of all of this....SUPERMAN, if he were a real man, would not be nearly as shallow as half of the fanboys who have spent time ragging over years on how "unworthy" Lois Lane is or complaining about her "hotness" or her "age" or any other number of sexist, crap arguments that I've seen people make about Lois and here about Amy. This is the kind of stuff that highlights why Clark Kent is a superhero and so many of the dudes who try to understand the character but fail....are not.

So just a huge AMEN to the post above. Stop holding women to different standards. Stop treating us like we are worthless after age 35. Stop holding us to impossible standards of beauty. Just stop. (I'm almost 30 so I guess I should just so kill myself now, right? Clearly, I don't have many good years left of value.)
