Not to disparage Amy Adams but Isla Fisher is much better looking, but at a quick glance they do both have similar-looking features.

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

There was no suggestion of a real movie in that synopsis. Can you imagine Nolan listening to any of that and saying "oh yeah, that works for me, that's good" or any variation of it? No, no, and no.

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."
Agreed. My previous favourites were Phyllis Coates, Erica Durance and Dana Delaney (animated). Never really cared for Margot Kidder and Teri Hatcher.

I can't as, like everyone here, I don't know the man. As such, I don't have any insight, nor a right to claim, on what Nolan would perceive a Superman film to be like.

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

This is slightly off topic, but I don't want to start a separate thread. Has anyone or is anyone planning on buying season 10 of Smallville? Admiral Young maybe? I am just curious, I plan on getting it sooner or later.

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

It's way to expensive or else I'd consider getting the Smallville Complete Series Box set. I'll probably get it at a reduced rate. I kind of want the Daily Planet "event" paper that is included with it It is supposed to be written by DC writers and be in newspaper form about all the major story lines that were told on the series.

I don't expect any real press or indepth interviews on the subject until principal wraps next month and they get into post.

Kinda bummed to hear about the lack of wire work. I know it was to be expected, this being a Zack Snyder film, but I was still hoping to see a return of those graceful takeoffs and landings that we saw in the Reeve movies.

There was something so simple and truly magical about seeing a guy actually hanging in the air, that no CG effect has ever been able to duplicate. In fact, after all these years, it's still easily my favorite special effect in any superhero movie-- just Reeve on some freakin wires.

While I'm of the opinion that -- with care -- CGI can do anything and look good doing it, I do seem to recall being amazed by some of the wire work done in the later Superman films. As Reeve got practice in the harness, his take offs and landings became graceful, as you said. Even breathtaking.

Of course, it's been a very long time since I've seen those films. Maybe the fog of years has been generous.

Well, he did say:

From time to time I'm in a harness, but I don't think anywhere near as much as he [Terence Stamp] was.
It's only to be expected that in a 2011 movie there'll be less wire work than in one from over 30 years earlier but there will clearly be some.

I agree, it's way to exspensive right now. Walmart has past seasons on DVD for $15, I have every season except 1,2 and 10. I really don't even want season 10, but at this point I just feel the need to complete the collection.

An eight year old has spunk. An adult has intelligence, fire, competence, power, forcefullness, passion, and so on. If you've read any Superman of the last 30 years, these are words that describe the character of Lois Lane.

Amy Adams as Lois - now that's some casting I can get behind. She does indeed have power and fire, while also being very feminine. While Henry Cavill strikes me as just a pretty face from what I've seen of him, this casting choice is much more intriguing. Adams has some real acting chops.

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

I have mentioned this before, but I'll bring it up again, I saw Amy Adams for the first time in "Julie and Julia" and immediately thought she would make a good Lois Lane. That was before she was cast. I would prefer her hair to be darker, but I think Adams will nail it. Another choice that I could have seen maybe around the time of Returns or earlier would be Jennifer Connelly.

I think it really depends on how old you want to make Clark. I know this has been part of the discussion, but all of my life I've always been under the impression that Lois was at least four or five years older than Clark. I mean she would almost have to be, considering her position at the Planet when Clark starts, that's not to say that Clark couldn't have out and about for a while. Still, I have always thought Lois was older.

So, as critical as I may be about some of the changes, I really have no problem with the casting and frankly, the suit is growing on me as well as Perry being black.

I never liked Margot Kidder, not physically and her raspy chain-smoking voice was a big turn off. What's-her-name from Returns while making some of the physical requirement for Lois was just... bland. But pretty much everyone and everything in that movie was bland.
Margot Kidder was a major turn off for me for the very reasons you mentioned.
Oh man, me too. It always galled me that so much else about that first Superman was perfect (it's still my all-time favorite movie, even with Kidder), except for that one piece of miscasting. Never could imagine what Superman saw in her.

The only other Lois I have liked from any live action version of Superman was the gal that played her on Smallville.
Thus far, my favorite Lois of all.

Apparently IIRC Kate Bosworth was cast precisely because Singer felt she had the most connection and chemistry with Brandon.
Wow, then everybody else who read with him must have been terrible. I didn't think they had any chemistry whatsoever, one of the biggest problems with that movie.

I can't find my copy of Michael Fleischer's Superman Encyclopedia at the moment, but I seem to remember that as of its writing (sometime in the mid-70s, I believe), Lois had indeed been established as being one or two years older than Clark.
