Not probably. It just isn't going to happen. You might as well be wishing for Margot Kidder to be brought back at this point.

I agree that Tina Fey would be a good fit in many respects, however unlikely it may be that she is actually cast.

In an incredible coincidence, I just happened to log off here and onto AICN where they've announced that Amy Adams has been signed for Lois.

Works for me.

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

She the chick from Enchanted? I like her. And Nordling's basically right that she's shown a nice range.

Nordling really does try too hard, though, in a noobish sort of way.

Now that she's been cast, it's difficult to think of anyone else playing the part.
Really? Does anyone actually feel that way? Unlike Supes himself, who's always a challenge, the range of possibilities for almost anyone else in his saga really always represent a wonderful range of casting opportunities.

Yep. She's also an Oscar nominee for the Fighter.

I submit that would hurt box office performance.

If you must racebend, why not Perry White?

Clark: "Perry White?"

Perry: "Yes, that's right: Perry White! And if you don't want to get fired on your first day, Kent, you'd better get down to the waterfront with Olson right now before rush hour!"

I doubt that casting Saldana in any movie at all would hurt its box office performance. Who do you think is really going to pass on buying a ticket to Superman because Lois Lane isn't a brunette of european background, other than the white racist yahoos who tried to organize that tiny little protest over "Heimdall" in Thor?

Every fanboy who's so incredibly narrow and anal as to object to the casting on "continuity" rather than explicitly racist concerns would be offset by hundreds of folks who'd see the ads and go "oh, I know who she is and like her. Let's see that." This is, of course, the only reason that well-known actors command high salaries to begin with.

Heh. Yeah. I've always thought something like that could be be brilliant, especially if you got an actor like John Amos to play Perry.

Sadly, a much, much larger group than in the case of Thor.

In any case, if Amy Adams pans out, to quote Jesse Jackson, "The question is moot."

But who today would be so crass as to comment on a black man being named White? Certainly not Clark Kent. And come on, have you ever heard anyone make an equivalent crack about Jack Black being white? I sure haven't. So why would anyone do the reverse? Someone decades ago might've commented on the irony, but not now.

And I can't imagine how anyone could think casting Zoe Saldana in a movie could possibly hurt its box office performance. You could cast her as Lex Luthor and people would come in droves.

Anyway, Amy Adams seems like a good choice.

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

Let me clarify. My point wasn't that Clark would do such a thing or emphasize his last name. My point was that you could play with the audiences expectations by having Clark stumble into the newsroom, looking for Perry, hear the actor's voice and then cut to a black Perry White.

There are many answers to this question. Look around in the U.S. Ask a birther or one of the tens of millions sympathetic to the birthers.

If you ask this instead
So why should anyone do the reverse?
then there is the answer I think you were looking for:
No one should.
I assure everyone here, I did not intend my made up dialog to be offensive. However, I don't think it's unreasonable for Clark to have some lessons to learn.

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

I haven't seen the fighter so I can't use that performance to gauge my response, but Amy Adams seems too cutesy. Returns also used someone who was famous for playing teenagers, whereas I expect Lane to feel more mature.
