    There is one person who you are all missing...

    She is Blond
    Could be a reporter or contact for C.K while he's in Africa
    And has a great presence before Superman exists.

    That person is......... Chloe Sullivan. :wow:;)

    I don't really care. I am more interested in getting a top-rate movie than I am in playing the numbers game about how many minutes of the movie Cavill spends in costume vs. out, because that has nothing to do with whether or not the movie is good.

    Chloe Sullivan has already been mentioned...

    Maybe WB is taking a page from Twilight and are going to create a "Team Lois" vs "Team Whoever" situation.:dry: I think I know what team I would be on

    What if it is Lana Lang and she follows Clark in to journalism and is killed in Africa. This would followt the rumours of a funeral scene.

    Well Lois not being in the movie or not having a significant is the first news from this re-boot that I have genuinly not liked, Lois is integral to Superman's growth as a character, hence why she has been involved in every origin story printed in the comics.

    you have to be the best director on this planet to make the audience care for a character that you saw for only 40 minutes.

    i am open for that. lets see if they can make it.

    Very good suggestion :up:

    :awesome: I sure as hell HOPE it's Chloe, but don't think that will be a possibility. Lana's probably going to have the Chloe-role, like she did in the animated series.

    Personally I don't think whoever's cast will BE a blonde. And I can certainly imagine Diane Kruger as Lois. But she'll need to do less sultry and more spunky.

    You do know that 40 minutes is like what? 1/3 rd of the movie? Jesus, parents get less screen time than that and we're left weeping with the hero. I'm looking at you Uncle Ben Kenobi Parker. Oh and besides, I've watched entire episodes on TV with guest-stars worth half that time who still left a lasting impression :) So is not all bad.

    I think this note was released to foil speculators and not disrupt the casting process of Lois Lane.

    I don't think it's the point to move the audience to tears for the death of mystery girl. It's to make Clark more human and make us believe that he is affected in such a way that gives his character more depth. Like killing Sonny in The Godfather. We didn't cry but it was a plot device that created a powerful scene. It affects Clark so it affects the audience.

    It's actually more likely that Lois is the smaller female role or another female lead because Variety specifically said it was a lead they are casting (the blondes) for.

    But Lois is "confirmed" to be it in it. The blondes they are casting are quite different in looks from the brunettes, we've heard them cast for (presumably) Lois. It's could also be an interesting detail that both Alice Eve and Rosamund Pike are English, Diane Kruger is German. They are all European.

    I think that'd be the best way to go really, I'd love that.

    I think Lois will be in the movie, I really think this female lead is either playing Lana, someone else from the Superman mythos or someone completely new that will be in the beginning of the film before Superman hits Metropolis.

    But the rumour of her having a small role worries me, she is almost as important to the Superman mythos as Superman himself, Lois is a bit part of what makes Superman, well, Superman!

    I want her to be in the movie for longer than 20-30 mins.

    I'll still say it's Lois short-list #1 :p And I hope it's Chloe, though not sure it's gonna happen.

    How is Alice Eve all of sudden a name attached to every superhero flick?

    I did have a theory that they're screwing with us and its something to do with Super 8 :p

    But I think its definitely related to Superman, I just wonder what it is and hope its more than one thing aswell :D

    I have no doubts that Lois Lane is in the movie. If this is an origin story, with most of it taking place outside of Metropolis a la Birthright, it makes sense that Lois wouldn't be prominent throughout.

    Has Lara been suggested yet? Maybe there's a bigger focus on Krypton in the early part of the movie and that Jor-El and Lara have larger roles than before?
