It was an interesting read but am not sure if the movie is going to be really that good. And the only hot chick in the movie gets killed early? Damn.

I haven't even seen the movie and I already know that Amy Adams will be my favorite Lois EVER!

I am the type of guy that finds "cute" to be extremely hot!
I'm with everyone but ST1...., on this one. I think Amy Adams is plenty hot, and having really liked her performances in both Enchanted and The Muppets, I have no doubt that she'll be great in MoS. As my for my favorite Lois portrayal, I'd have to go with Erica Durance. But then I'm one of the few people on the boards here who actually likes Smallville.

Affirmitive.

I apologise that am not a geeky twerp that finds just any actress cast in a high profile geeky role to be...hot.

Amy Adams isn't just any old actress as the point has been made to you before several times and the point is that you've made your point about her like umpteen times in this thread without even seeing her...you know...act in the role.

Besides being a very good actress Amy Adams is smoking hot. I'm really looking forward to seeing her as Lois Lane. She should be great.

I thought Christina Hendricks' voice work as Lois in the All-Star Superman cartoon was very good.

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
Phyllis Coates doesn't even rate a mention? She even played Ellen Lane (Lois' Mother?) in Lois and Clark.

I guess you could put her after Margot Kidder. I won the Adventures of Superman on DVD and I think both Noel Neill and Phyllis Coates from that series are a little too stiff and formal. For some reason I cannot define they don't come across as very feminine to me...something about their mannerisms or looks that lacks warmth to me.

Well, they probably played that off of the whole "daughter of a general who grew up on military bases" thing. But I think they did okay and "looked the part" better.

I'd probably put them over Margot Kidder who's my least favorite Lois Lane. I don't know how but I forgot all about Teri Hatcher who's probably my favorite Lois Lane.

Not sure where I'd place Erica Durance, probably in the middle somewhere. She just never "played it right" for my tastes and her obvious after-market features sours things a bit too.

I actually just watched that again last week after getting it for $1.96(! I still can't believe it was that cheap), and I thought the three lead actors all did an amazing job. It still amazes me the quality of actors they've been getting for the DCUA movies.

How? There's not a dramatic moment or real scene in it - which is kind of a giveaway. It's a bunch of familiar sequences which appear to have been lifted from different versions of the Superman story, described in more specific detail than makes any sense for a synopsis and which build toward...nothing, in emotional or storytelling terms. It has that amateurish style of going on, relating incident after incident with no emotional or character emphasis (other than synopsizing the occasional confessional monologue or moment of bluster), building no tension at all until it just stops. There's no point of view, no twist or inspiration to it - it's the kind of thing kids make up by chattering back and forth - "oh yeah, you know what else would be cool?" Meh.

In fact, he has failed to make any worthwhile point at all.

I am certainly not going to defend the synopsis as it is written because the style is very amateurish.

But within the events as told I could see where it is a nice mixture of action and character development.

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

Where's the character development? Clark has an earnest conversation about his goals with his father - sorry, but BFD. I don't see people like Nolan or Snyder getting the least bit excited about this kind of familiar trivia.

I never said the synopsis has the character development spelled out in detail...but I can see where such events could be an impetus for character development.

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

This is the only reason why I believe it is fake or at least just a fan fiction treatment which is most likely is. The script is in lockdown along with the Dark Knight Rises script (which has been the norm for Nolan productions). This was probably just a fans theory based on the set photos and the plot rumours. We've still not got an official film plot synopsis I don't think from Warner Bros.
