Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

As an example of how anal some among the fanboisie can be, there are already a couple of objections out there to the effect that Adams would be appropriate for Lana Lang but is wrong for Lois Lane - apparently because of her hair color.

^ That'd be another great choice. Here are my top five:

1. Zooey Deschanel (probably not)
2. Elizabeth Banks
3. Rachel McAdams
4. Mary Elizabeth Winstead
5. Rebeca Hall

As for predicting who was going to be Superman...I voted in Jet's thread for Matthew Bomer. Henry Cavil was my second choice.

Zooey Deschanel would have been great to play off Brandon Routh in SR.

Isn't my understanding that Kevin Spacey agreed to play Lex Luthor on the condition that Kate Botchworth got the part for Lois?

I haven't seen the fighter so I can't use that performance to gauge my response, but Amy Adams seems too cutesy. Returns also used someone who was famous for playing teenagers...
Amy Adams is 36 and looks like she's in her late 20s.

I don't think it was that explicit. He'd worked with her on Beyond the Sea and recommended her but he didn't have any sort of veto.

Edit - I managed to miss the Amy Adams bit when I went straight to the last page of this thread. I think it's an excellent choice. Not just because she has a comic strip like alliterative name but she'll bring all the pizzaz and vibrancy that Kate Bosworth spectacularly failed to bring to the role.

I know. This boggles the mind. We went through the same thing with Mary Jane Watson, Gwen Stacy, etcetera. Why is it so hard to grasp that actors and actresses often change their hair color for a part?

Heck, this isn't even a secret Hollywood thing. Most of the women I know have changed their hair color a couple of times, just for variety's sake. "I'm tired of being a redhead. I think I'm going try blonde for awhile . . . ."

What planet do these people live on?

I don't know. Frankly I'm of the opinion most of the people complaining about Amy Adams had these complaints all ready to go regardless who was cast in the part.

I mean, honestly, would ANYONE have satisfied these people? I personally think Amy Adams is a great choice because, among other things, she brings the type of cachet that might actually elevate this film above something appealing only to fanboys and kids.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

The casting so far has been great...

Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman/Kal-El
Diane Lane as Martha Kent
Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent
Amy Adams as Lois Lane

Can't wait to see who is next.

Well, turnabout is fair play, since we had a raven-haired Lana Lang in Smallville. Maybe we need a ginger Lois to restore cosmic balance.

On the other hand, what bugged me about both MJ and Jean Grey in the movies is that they never had the same hair color from one movie to the next. Dunst's MJ was darker red in the first movie, lighter in the second, in between in the third, while Janssen's Jean was sort of the reverse. The advantage of going with someone who has the right hair color naturally is that the color presumably wouldn't be so variable from one movie to the next. (And while we're at it, why was Rogue's white streak more blonde than white in X2?)

Maybe the characters used hair coloring?

They had to cast AA as LL. It's that obvious.

Of course, that limits the Lex Luthor options. Kevin Kline? Chevy Chase? Michael Madsen? Emilio Estevez? Sylvester Stallone?

I like Amy Adams too, but I wanted an actress who was closer in age to Henry Cavill. She's 9 years older than her costar, and will be at least 40 by the time she plays Lois Lane in her third Superman film (assuming she signs for three as actors often do in these franchise deals). BTW, Margot Kidder was only 4 years older than Christopher Reeve.

Incidentally, I hope the Zod rumors will cease. Been there, done that.
