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

Some people like macaroni and cheese. Most people get tired of it, if it's all they're fed. The mac-and-cheese crowd, however, always object to any change at all in the recipe or presentation. That's tiresome to the rest of us.

Nick Fury is a black guy with an eyepatch who looks like Samuel Jackson. Deal with it.

Amy is cute, but that hat makes her look hideous.

Could care less about her age. Its more of the age difference between her and Cavill (what? 9 years??) plus her looks itself that just doesn't gel with how I've thought of Lois all these years in the comic books. Had this been John Ham being Supes, I wouldn't have a thorn about the age issue. Similarly if they paired Cavill with Danielle Panabaker or Megan Fox, I'd have the same issue, both age and looks wise. The actress portraying Lois should be between 28-32 and have an energetic fresh faced look. Supes should be 27-35, same requirements.

If I were casting, I'd go with Brandon Routh as Supes and Alana De La Garza as Lois Lane with Erin Karpluk as either Lois or Lana.

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

In what universe is Clark Kent older than Lois Lane? That makes no sense. Does Clark just have a hole in his resume six years deep?

Also, 32 is pretty young to be on the receiving end of a Pulitzer. There are people that young with Pulitzer journalism awards, but not a lot, and they tend to be the junior parts of journalistic teams who share a prize. I suspect it's also rather young to be a seriously established reporter of a major metropolitan (ha ha) newspaper.

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

Lois has usually always been older than Clark...except for "Superman: The Movie" where I think it was revealed that the little girl on the train with her mom who sees Clark super speed by is supposed to be Lois as a nine year old. Most other times she's been a few years older. Lois in "Smallville" was in college.

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

Indeed.

Anyway, contradicting entirely what I just said, I think we all know that Zooey Deschanel should have been Lois Lane.

But in age makeup, see? So it's still ageist casting, but not ageist storytelling. That's important. Besides, it's balanced out by Gwyn Paltrow being like 500 (but still pretty hot) over in the Iron Man franchise.

Kidder was five years older than Reeve.

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

I was for Zooey as well...and first had the thought after seeing "500 Days of Summer" for the first time. She would have been great. Still happy with Amy though. She'll do a good job. We really need some news...

This comment made me think of something: How come it is acceptable in our society in movies for men to be much, much older than women, but the reverse is bad, especially if the actors cast don't look their age? Adams might be 37, but does she really look 37? Speaking from personal experience, I am always surprised at how old she actually is considering that she still looks like she is in her early 30s at most.

It is also worth noting that many times, actors don't play their real ages in films. Wasn't Tom Welling and Kristen Bell something like 25 when cast as 15 year olds?

No, I meant Kristen Bell as Veronica Mars. She was something like 10 years older than her character.

Also, Harrison Ford was something like 8 years older than Indy in KotCS.

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

Oh my mistake. Yeah casting actors who are actually older than their characters has been a long time tradition in hollywood. I'm not really sure I understand StarTrek1701's point...one he's made before in this thread.

Speaking of Harrison Ford, he is 9 years older than Karen Allen, but no one complains about the age difference there.
