Lois doesn't have to be "hot". I don't know if Superman is that shallow.

Hot's subjective. Witness folks complaining abut Margot Kidder, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway...well just about any actress cast in a superhero movie.
I must say that I wasn't that attracted to Margot Kidder either.
I think you are right saying that hot is subjective but I think in some cases like this it can be held as a general opinion. I'm not saying she isn't attractive but just missing something. But I think if they do like 'Superman: The Movie' and get the relationship to work and make us love her character it doesn't matter.

The only actress cast as Lois that I think would really fit the general notion of hot would be Terri Hatcher in Lois & Clark. And possibly how Lois was drawn in the '90's Superman TAS. Otherwise Lois has been played by attractive women that some will feel are hot and others not. Other than Hatcher there's Erica Durance from Smallville.

Enh. I would have rather seen Rachel MacAdams as Lois. Amy Adams looks too sweet and adorable to be Lois; Lois needs some fire to her.

She showed a lot fire in "The Fighter" going toe to toe with Melissa Leo.

I can see McAdams as Lois. But I can also see Amy Adams as Lois too.

Personally, I await the day they both star in a movie together. And have a pillow fight.






What?

Good choice.
Interesting - according to IMDB, Alessandro Juliani is in the film, too - albeit playing a different character than, obviously, Hamilton, who he played in Smallville.

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

Rachel McAdams was one of my top picks as well...my dream pick was Zooey Deschanel.

Actually what most fanboys consider hot usually leaves me cold. They always seem to want one of these generic model types who looks like they stepped out of Maxim, who has a nice body and attractive face-- but nothing remotely original or distinctive about them whatsoever.
As far as I can tell, "hot" means "she gives me wood." It's completely subjective.

I love Maggie Gyllenhaaal, Scarlett Johansson is pretty much a goddess and Anne Hathaway can be quite lovely.

Margot Kidder? Never bought for a moment she was a Lois Lane. She didn't have the look and her raspy chain-smoking voice was hardly doing her any favors. It was hard to see what Superman would like in her and if we can't see that then it's hard to really buy into the relationship.

Margot Kidder was a terrible Lois Lane.

As said above, I think Teri Hatcher probably had the right balance between looks, being spunky and being a strong-willed "modern woman." It was easy to see why Superman would like her, it was easy to see why Clark would be interested in Lois on Smallville or even in Superman: Returns.

Margot Kidder? Couldn't buy it for a moment.

Why not? She wasn't superhot. She was normal. Even more flawed than any heroin in any movie I've seen, from her raspy voice to her sarcastic nature where she frequently put Clark and others like him down even as she complimented them. Superman loved her because he saw the person she really was inside. He was able to bore through all the layers that made her unappealing. That's what makes Supes great, he can do that with everyone.
