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

We're talking about the fake suit again I love how things get repeated over and over again in this thread. It's a fake pic. Zack Snyder has stated before that he wants to beat the sites and the paps and get pics of the suit out first. That's is why we had the original pic out when we did. Set photos aside anything else we see will be studio released IMO.

Oh, for the last time, here's the original version of that pic (clearly taken from an Immortals shot):

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

None of the movie Loises have made a strong enough impression on me to really care. I like Amy Adams a great deal, though, and I'm sure that she'll be one of the best things about this movie - she always is.

The only other Lois I have liked from any live action version of Superman was the gal that played her on Smallville.

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

you know, Margot Kidder may be the best. I like the fact that she is attractive but far from perfect or picturesque, and she has a lot of personality.. at some points she is hardly at all agreeable. She is, in fact, a rather nice but sometimes crude and cruel. in other words, she is more like a real person than other actresses who they cast in these kinds of movies.

Erica Durance was great until the writers started making her more like Chloe.

Agreed. I love her feisty, down to earth Lois. And she had undeniable chemistry with Reeve, which is the most important thing. When you compare her screen test with the other girls, there was just no contest.

Apparently IIRC Kate Bosworth was cast precisely because Singer felt she had the most connection and chemistry with Brandon.

I know a lot complained about her being cast as Lois. But I think she did a pretty good job and didn't really have any complaints about her performance.

I liked Terry Hatcher, that's about it.

This synopsis is really generic and uninteresting. It is also, at every turn, exactly what one might guess from looking at publicity stills and nothing more. We'll see how much of it turns out to be so.

I think the synopsis was written generically but I found it interesting and if it is well acted then I think it could be a good movie...if that is indeed the script.

My favorite Lois Lane(s)

Amy Adams (pending)
Erica Durance
Kate Bosworth
Terri Hatcher
Noel Neill
Margot Kidder

Why does everybody hate Dana Delany's Lois on Superman: TAS? She's my favorite (to date)!

I was just rating the live action versions. I think Dana as Lois on TAS is one of the best characterizations of Lois.

Same here. It was obviously a younger, more idealized version of Lois from the Kidder version, but I still thought she was great in the role, and hit all the right notes.

I liked her voice and attitude, but the writing for the character always seemed really generic and one-dimensional to me (of course, so did the writing for the show as a whole...)
