I can totally see the heroic, globe trotting lana connecting with the superheroic glob trotting CK/superman who also happens to be boy who saved her life back in Smallville. Basically two heroes finding common ground.
What I don't want to see is a love triangle between lana, lois and Clark because that would be cheesy and cliched (the pre-crisis comics milked that story to death).

As for Michelle Monaghan, well she's always been my pick for Lois but I really like her in any role and would welcome her as lana.
I love her in Pak's Action Comics run.

Love the MEW, Michelle Monaghan and Ginnifer Goodwin suggestions. But I doubt we'll see Lana again.

Jimmy Olsen deserves to be in this universe over Lana

Agreed, infact I just love Greg pack's entire action comics run (his batman/superman is solid but not as good) as he happens to be one of those rare cases of a writer understanding what superman is about.

LOL ouch!!! Huntress you sound so vindictive! why the hate?
To be honest I was never a big fan of Lana, I always thought she occupied a certain period in Clark's life but her story ends the second Clark goes to Metrapolis and meets Lois.
However her portrayals in STAS (a successful fashion designer who actually cares about Clark unlike Lois who doesn't even notice him) and the new 52 have warmed me up to the character. You really should check out action comics with Greg Pak, it's a fantastic read and the best superman we've had in many years.

Looks like most of the people who don't like Lana are those who watched Smallville.

I think with Smallville they were making you hate on Lana just to push Clois

lol...I can't help it. I wasn't always a Lana hater, but during the SV days the battles between Clois fans and Clana fans made me forever hate her. I am now the official Lana Lang hater of the Hype.

I may eventually check out some stuff from the new 52, but I have to work my way into it when the time is right.

Problem is with Lana, as opposed to Gwen Stacy (they both being the alternate romantic interest) is that Supes has already met Lois, putting Lana in would make it a love triangle, could you get any more boring or cliche for a movie? Shouldn't be like that. I would love to see an appearance but nothing too significant.

Greg Pak couldn't use Lois til Action 31 he was told he can't. Can you believe the book she made her debut in with Superman and she can't be in it. New 52 has marginalized Lois big time the co pubs even admitted they pushed her down too much.

Why concentrate on characters not been cast though? Production begins tomorrow focus on those who are there.

The Greg Park and the STAS are the best of her. If she comes up I would want smth similar for that character and would be able IN FUTURE movies (solo Supes) and that will be really great to add smth in Lois-Clark relationship eventhought Clark loves Lois, that would add spice to the developed relationship that we might see fullfilling after this movie.

For Lana Lang I would cast Stephen Lang. He's the only one I can see getting all of the emotions down perfectly and the fact that his appearance is so close to the source material is just an added bonus. Plus just imagine his chemistry on screen with Clark.

I like Lana. But her place is in a solo Superman movie. Superman 3 did a good job with Lana, they could do something like that if they wanted to use her in a future solo Superman film.

I really think it'd be a waste of time to introduce her here. I do not care to see her here at all...

They can show as the STAS. Clark doesn't love her anymore (was his teenage love and they can show a little bit for that maybe in a flashback scene) and also showing that he has a great friend from Smallville and Lois could get a little jelaous and of course leading a little spicy touch in that (but we need first more Clark-Lois or I don't know maybe that could get their love stronger or fullfied) but Clark knows what he feels and Lana is like his sister. as for the job. a fashion designer (that could lead the two reporters), the engineer or another interesting job could also work for the story.
