Too true. If I recall correctly, Lois is supposed to be a bit "plain" looking in the comics, even if that is not how she is always drawn. I remember an internal monologue by Superman where he analyzes what it is that he loves about her. Essentially, Superman concludes that Lois is pretty, but rather plain and what made him notice her was the fire of her personality, courage, and drive to do good in the world. So yeah, Superman really is portrayed as not being nearly as shallow as many of his fans or even the artists who illustrate him.

Besides being a phenomenal actress, Amy's closeness to such a characterization of Lois is one of my favourite aspects of her casting. She is a gorgeous woman and incredibly beautiful, but, in terms of the highly skewed ideas of beauty in Hollywood, she has a comparatively plainer look. She has more of a girl-next-door, wholesome look to her as opposed to the highly sexualized bombshell ideal of Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, etc. Thank god, Snyder and Co. paid no heed to the fanboys on forums demanded the casting of sexiness over brains with choices like Jessica Biel or Olivia Wilde.

Just as an aside, in response to your comments about men's messed up ideas of beauty, don't judge us all based on those few mad fanboys. The internet is not really representative of most men's ideals of physical attractiveness. In the real world, pretty much all my friends complain about the ridiculous ideas of attractiveness pushed on society by Hollywood and the media and how all our significant others have messed up ideas about what men find attractive as a result. Our girlfriends are more worried about societal ideas about weight and age than we are.

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.

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.)

What the hell's with all the generalising? When did I say anything about all actresses being useless past the age of 35? I was talking about Lois and Clark. That's it.

You seemed to be implying that I had something against Superman hooking up with anyone older.

I'm not familiar with her work, but I'm glad they didn't get some supermodel bimbo.

Margot Kidder is still my favourite Lois Lane.

Lois Lane shouldn't be young.

Therefore I don't see how she can be too old.

Simple as that.

Lois being in her early to mid 30s, and then naturally going on from there, is fine. But starting out the series with a Lois who'll be 40 in just over a year doesn't make much sense to me.

I just don't think so. I don't agree. To me she looks like someone who's already in her early 40s.

I remember when she turned 37, People magazine misreported it as 27. Even they can't tell and they're obsessed with celebrities.

I should also say that either way, it just doesn't matter.

THIS.

Lois isn't suppose to be 25. She's a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist.

Do you guys think she's too old because in your mind younger is hotter and Lois has to be hot? To quote Lex, "WRONG!"

It doesn't matter if she looks old. She looks believable as an accomplished reporter. That's the main thing.

I feel like this discussion is pointless... I mean, who cares how old she is, just look at her:



She looks fantastic as Lois Lane.

Superman could see every microscopic nook and cranny on your body. He won't mind wrinkles.

I would say less too but I knew she must be around that age because of the way you asked the question. Otherwise I'd say she's around 30 to 35.

But that's to prove the point that some women like my cousin, who doesn't have Hollywood magic, look younger. Amy doesn't look her age and can pass for somebody younger...even without Hollywood magic
