-1. If we are talking about a down to earth movie I would say looks aren't important but i'm one of those "conditioned" people who expects a good looking chick for the Superhero whether or not said Superhero is shallow. He deserves hotness to match his coolness.
Hot's subjective. Witness folks complaining abut Margot Kidder, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway...well just about any actress cast in a superhero movie.
I must say that I wasn't that attracted to Margot Kidder either.
I think you are right saying that hot is subjective but I think in some cases like this it can be held as a general opinion. I'm not saying she isn't attractive but just missing something. But I think if they do like 'Superman: The Movie' and get the relationship to work and make us love her character it doesn't matter.
I love Maggie Gyllenhaaal, Scarlett Johansson is pretty much a goddess and Anne Hathaway can be quite lovely.

Margot Kidder? Never bought for a moment she was a Lois Lane. She didn't have the look and her raspy chain-smoking voice was hardly doing her any favors. It was hard to see what Superman would like in her and if we can't see that then it's hard to really buy into the relationship.

Margot Kidder was a terrible Lois Lane.

As said above, I think Teri Hatcher probably had the right balance between looks, being spunky and being a strong-willed "modern woman." It was easy to see why Superman would like her, it was easy to see why Clark would be interested in Lois on Smallville or even in Superman: Returns.

Margot Kidder? Couldn't buy it for a moment.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
