I'm pro Kristen Bell. I absolutely love her in everything. I think this would be a great "breakout" role for her. She has a lot of personality and that's what I think of when I think of Lois.

I think she could get the character nailed personality and delivery-wise. Someone with photoshop skills, wanna darken her hair appropriately on a pic showing a "Lois-like Pose" ?

...although I see Wilde is still in House (I don't watch the show and thought she had left given how much film work she's been doing). Of course TV schedules can sometimes work out depending when a film is shot.
Wilde (and her character) took a leave from the series to accommodate her movie commitments. She's been temporarily replaced by Amber Tamblyn, but she's still listed as a regular.

Yeah, while she might not be the case of walking right off the page like I felt Routh was with Superman or Patrick Stewart was with Professor X, but A) I think she can pull off the part magnificently and B) I feel that Lois is an every woman type character. Looks don't exactly matter with her.

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

I wonder if director Snyder will be a traditionalist when it comes to Superman's costume. There's always pressure from somewhere to "modernize" the outfit.

I don't think he really has any other choice than to be traditionalist or extremely close to traditionalist. They fan backlash would be unprecedented and the problem with that is that everyone is a fan of Superman. Whether they are a "big" fan or not, Superman is so much of an icon that messing with the iconism of him would be messing with like everyones childhood.

I did like the suit in Returns though.

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

There's most likely going to be a backlash from fans on the suit anyways. There always is with comic book movie costumes. This film will be no exception. I liked the Returns suit as well. They used it at the start of Geoff Johns Action Comics run. Adam Kubert did a take on it.

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

Let's hope he does, there's always room for improvement anyway. A good costume to use would be the one from Superman: Earth One-it has great-looking boots.

BTW, I came across an article about the concept of casting a black Lois Lane, and how it would fare: Chromatic Campaign, anyone?: The Case For Rashida Jones To Play Lois Lane

Exactly what I've been saying about the casting of peoples of color.

Rashida Jones? Her mother Peggy Lipton is white. Were the campaigners for nontraditional race casting afraid that a darker actress would be a tougher sell?

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

I think the suit will be fairly traditional, but slightly updated. Snyder has never really swayed too much when it comes to classic looking comic-book costumes (for example, look at Watchmen) but I do think he likes to update them a bit.

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

I didn't have much of an opinion about the new choice for Superman until I read the guy's wikipedia page. Yikes. He's been a front-runner for Batman, James Bond, Edward Cullen in Twilight, and a character in the Harry Potter movies. He lost out on every one of those roles. The guy was even cast as Superman once and then was released once that project fell apart. He should really retire from acting if this new Superman project doesn't pan out... That's just painful.

Okay maybe we CAN add Olivia Wilde into the foray.
