I like her. But she's older than Cavill. By just a few years, so i wonder if they would consider her.

At least she looks like a woman, versus Kate Bosworth, who look liked she dressed in her mom's clothes.

Or a Latina actress for Lois. (Full disclosure: I'm partial to this particular actress because she is a dear friend of mine.)
Whoa - that works for me!

Looks like a perfect choice to me, but wow, I am sure going to miss that Williams score.

Saldana could probably pull it off.

If we're going latina, I'd prefer Eva Mendes myself. She's younger, hotter, and has just as much attitude.

I mean, let's face it, considering this is a Zach Snyder film, the only thing we have to worry about are the visuals. There's not going to be a need for world-class actors here. lol

Emily Blunt has been mentioned before, but I'm not a fan, at least not for her as Lois. Jessica Stroup (90210) has also been suggested. I've never seen her act, but she has the right look and age (only a few years younger than Cavill).

Nah.

But Zack Efron could play a kryptonian that gets blasted in the face with a supernova or whatever

Rosario Dawson is a better actress, though, in my opinion.

Actually I think you need good performers in a film like this so that they hit the right tone and don't get so overwhelmed by the visuals that the performances don't register.

I don't think you can take Lois out of Superman. I mean, she's not like Batman's random romances or Iron Man's or even Spider-Man. She is integral to the Superman mythos, more so than any Superhero romantic interest. To me, she even rises above romantic interest. In many ways she is Superman's equal and at the very least, she's his partner more than any other really.
Lex has to be in this too.

Lex has become more than the archenemy. He has become an integral character in the Superman mythos along with Lois, Jimmy and Perry. It is important to have him in the movie, but just keep him as the supporting character. It is time to let another villain shine.

Yeah, I agree. I posted earlier about how over the course of five Superman movies, there have been a total of two main villains from Superman comics. That's just crazy considering he's been around so long and had so many villains. Look no further than Brainiac.

Might be a bit older now, only 39, but I was going to suggest Carla Gugino. Going from Sally Jupiter to Lois Lane. I bet Snyder and company will go young though.

What about Joanne Kelly from WAREHOUSE 13? I could see her as Lois.
