They could bring back Lois' bob haircut. I wouldn't be offended.

Dennis, how do you trash Smallville (which I don't even really like, btw) and yet praise a piece of crap like Green Lantern to high heavens?

"Green Lantern" was not a piece of crap. It just had flaws...kind of like "Smallville"

Agreed. Plus Green Lantern actually had, like action and a superhero doing heroic, super-powered things.

Maybe not as much as some fans would like, but certainly more than we got in Smallville.

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

One of these days, I ought to actually watch an episode of Smallville. Lots of people talk shit about how it's too whiney and slow and stuff, which means I'd probably think it was great.

I did see a clip once. It was about some guy with long hair who was a Luthor of some extraction and Martha Kent in a deathtrap and it was the most bald-faced, inept ripoff of Saw I've ever seen. It involved a word jumble. A fucking word jumble.

Maybe it wasn't ass in context, but I doubt it.

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

I still think Amy Adams as Lois Lane is a bad, bad idea. She isn't glamorous at all compared to the supporting actresses in the movie - Diane Lane, Julia Ormond and Antje Trau - and she just isn't the 'Lois' type in my Supes fanboy mind. Neither was Erica Durance mind you, but Durance at least had the sheer hotness factor about her, which Adams definitely...lacks. If anything they should just swap out Antje Trau to be Lois Lane and Amy Adams to be Faora. That'd make more sense.

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

Lois has to be hot? I mean, I guess so, because plain women aren't allowed near cameras, and the porno movies comic book artists trace from tend to be your standard Brazzers-type productions.

People say that Superman, being the world's most desirable man (which isn't true, there's no particular reason to believe he even has a normal dick, and more seriously he's a pretty inaccessible mate, especially when JMS is writing him) needs the world's most desirable woman. Here's why that's stupid.

Superman is unlikely to care about looks at all. To him, we are all just piles of infrared-radiating meat and organs with bone inside. I bet he spent the first month of having x-ray vision willing himself unhorrified. I really doubt he cares about wrinkles or love handles, you know? He can see your shit. Before you shit it.

Also, crucially, a lookist Superman is all kinds of wrong.

But anyway, if I were casting, I'd pick Zooey Deschanel. Pete Woods did, and it seemed to work out okay. But I'd also put her in a touch of age-makeup, because at 30 she's too young. I might also send her to acting school, but just being able to say the lines in The Happening probably deserves its own special kind of Oscar.

Amy Adams is hot. And talented. I'm very curious to see her performance.

And theres me thinking your supposed to pick actors based on ability and not their FHM rating

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

A couple of the posters I like and admire most on this board are or were fans of Smallville. These are people of perspicacity, wit and taste.

Nonetheless every time I tried to watch the show, it was clearly mediocre and trivial crap as far as I'm concerned. C'est la guerre.

Since when has Live action Lois ever been Glamorous? She's always cute and/or spunky (Noel Neill, Phyllis Coates, Margot Kidder, Terri Hatcher, Kate Bosworth). The one from Smallville, I guess is fairly glamorous, but, pics I've seen of her in character haven't been glamour shots, her beauty seems to be played down.
