Lois has usually always been older than Clark...except for "Superman: The Movie" where I think it was revealed that the little girl on the train with her mom who sees Clark super speed by is supposed to be Lois as a nine year old. Most other times she's been a few years older. Lois in "Smallville" was in college.
So in the Donner-verse, Clark was 30 (when he emerged from his dad telling him about the "various concepts of immortality") and Lois was 21?

Geez, I'm sure her last name was on the posters and in the credits. It was also widely discussed here and elsewhere. Wouldn't be suprised if you contributed to those discusions. So, yeah. A lucky guess. Lets stick to that story.

Nice way to stay civil there, ace. Well, since I'm just ignorant, it was a hell of a lucky guess on my part, huh.
You can claim anything you like on a BBS, but people are under no compunction to believe unproven assertions which are implausibly self-serving.

Nor is civility a virtue in response to some of this narrow foolishness.
I have lots of bad traits. I am no liar. Not ever. Life is too short, and I pledged years ago I would not live my life in any way that I feel a need to lie about it. For the record, I haven't kept track of the people in pop culture since Lee Majors was one of them.

I really want this conversation to end, but I will not be silent when my character is attacked. So I'm done now, unless someone insults me again.
Are't you a lawyer? Surely you must know how faulty human memory is and how events can get reordered in the convolutions of the mind when recollecting. Especially when a "good story" is being told. That not lying, its being human.

For the record I also think Alba was miscast as Sue. My reason: She looked too young to be Sue. Sue should not look younger than Johnny!!!!!! Then again every character, with possible exception of Evans as the Torch was too. Even Michael Chiklis as the Thing was disappointing.

So, any new Superman news?

Why would they? It's established in the movies that Indy is older than Marion.

Jessica Alba's new film. She has the title role. Since she's half Kryptonian it works.

Caucasian is a bullshit made-up pseudoscientific word that has little to nothing to do with anything.
None of the widely used racial or ethnic classifications mean anything scientifically. Race in the sense that it's being discussed here is a social fabrication.

In closing, they should have just let her look like herself and explained it away as having different dads or moms or cast a brother who was less white-bread.
There was never a need to explain or address it in any way.

Bullshit. The first time I saw her - without knowing who she was - I said to myself "what is that Daxamite chick doing playing a Kryptonian?"

Turns out I was right, so it must be pretty obvious.

P.S. - what's a Daxamite?

It's strange there's so much debate over whether Jessica Alba is a Kryptonian or a Daxamite when it's clear, simply by looking at her that she's in reality a stone, cold fox.

Doesn't change my point.

Unless you are suggesting that if it is established in the movie, that makes an age difference okay. What if in this flick, it is established that Lois is older than Clark? Would that stop the whole "Amy Adams is too old" nonsense?

No-one complains about an age difference in Raiders because there is literally no reason to.

It is not the super-smart example of hypocrisy that you think it is. There are examples out there, but Indy isn't one of them.

The point is: it's perfectly okay when the guy is older than the woman, but it is somewhat of a issue when the woman (either the actress or/and her role) is older.

Yep. Ford reached the point with some of his younger co-stars where the age difference was really getting creepy (like with Anne Heche) but he seems to have finally moved gracefully out of trying to do romantic leads.
