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

The synopsis contains no hint of character development sufficient to make a story interesting. Perez has more going on in the Superman comic right now, and that's damning with pretty faint praise.

I am fine with disagreeing.

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.
There are tens of thousands of other actresses that are way hotter and better actresses than Amy Adams. Seen her 'act', never liked it. Again, I apologise for having better taste in women.

How does subjective differences in taste mean one is better than the other?

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

This has nothing to do with a taste in women...this has to do with a continued dismissal of an actress in a role that you've not seen her in yet StarTrek1701. No question that Antje Traue is a beautiful woman and yes she would have been an interesting pick for Lois but you continue to assert your view that Amy Adams was a wrong pick for Lois which is fine if it was an opinion based on anything else but her appearance. You continue to prattle on about this every time a "news" item crops up and even if it doesn't. We get your point man...there really is no need to continue on an on an on about it. Why bother posting in the thread at all if you've got such a negative view on the film? It doesn't seem like this will change any time soon.

I don't have a negative view of the film itself but... whatever man. I won't be posting in this thread anymore. Point noted. Sorry to have bothered you guys.

Is it just me or does Amy Adams look very similar to Isla Fisher?

Amy Adams will be the new Margot Kidder. Embodies the character of Lois Lane, but aesthetically not the best they could have cast.

They should have Isla play Lana Lang. Would make for a great awkward scene when Clark introduces Lois to his old girlfriend from smallville.

No its not just you I confuse them all the time. I used to confuse both of them with Jenna Fischer too. All three have a similar look.

Interesting synopsis, but it's a fake as confirmed by the Superman Homepage.

I'm glad we have a confirmation. I still like the synopsis even though the writing isn't great.

Growing up on Lois Lane embodied by Noel Neill, Curt Swan drawings and Margot Kidder I never thought of Lois as a sexpot. I always thought of her as someone who won over Superman with her "spunk."
