I don't think any of us did, did we? I mean, I'm not going back and reading 60 pages to check, but when I heard she'd been cast, I thought, "All that speculation and her name never came up! Weird!" But I think she's a great choice.

(And whatever they do to her hair -- I just hope it's better than what they did to Kate Bosworth's. Because...bleh. I don't think it helped sell her performance as Lois...)

^No need to read through all the pages, since there's a handy "Search This Thread" box at the top of the page. And you're right -- a search for the name "Adams" in this thread turns up zero results prior to today.

No Amy Adams wasn't brought up in our speculations before...at least I don't recall her name being brought up.

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

Wow interesting. Didn't see that choice coming.

Of course I've never seen Cavil or Amy Adams in anything. I look forward to looking at the various photoshops people on SHH are no doubt cranking up as we speak.

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

Most of this cast would be considered thinking outside the box in my opinion. There has literally been no one that I've been disappointed about yet.

Knowing her performance in Night at the Museum 2 as Amelia Earhart, I think she has all the right spunk to play Lois.

I forgot seeing her in that. Yeah, definitely reminiscent of the Lois in the old Fleischer cartoons.

I like Amy Adams too, but I wanted an actress who was closer in age to Henry Cavill. She's 9 years older than her costar, and will be at least 40 by the time she plays Lois Lane in her third Superman film (assuming she signs for three as actors often do in these franchise deals). BTW, Margot Kidder was only 4 years older than Christopher Reeve.
Lois, in the typical setup, is the Planet's star reporter when Clark is a noob, so her being older doesn't seem that unusual to me.
Between endless reboots and adaptations I've lost track. However, at one point, it seemed to me the idea was that, while Clark was the noob, he wasn't a kid fresh out of college either. The implication was usually that he'd spent a few years having adventures (varying depending on the version of the origin you were reading/watching) before he decided to adopt the reporter persona.

^True, but the point is that Lois has traditionally been portrayed as the established star reporter who was there before Clark, not a novice herself.

But if Clark spent several years as an adult someplace before coming to the Planet, time during which Lois had risen the ranks of said paper, there's nothing to say they couldn't be about the same age. The difference would be that Lois was established there and Clark was the new guy.

I never said they couldn't be the same age. I just said there's no reason Lois couldn't or shouldn't be older.

"Been around the block" Lois Lane is one way to rationalize the casting of an older actress. For a reboot, I prefer the notion of a young reporter, just out of college, who is beginning to impress her fellow journalists at the Daily Planet.
But that's not Lois's role you're describing -- it's Clark's role. He's the one who's just shown up as a bright new talent and begins to impress his colleagues. Lois is the seasoned veteran who's already a star. What would be the point in giving Lois a role that's a mirror image of Clark's?
I don't see a problem. Lois may be talented and ambitious, but she doesn't have to be a "star" reporter before she gets her first interview with Superman. What I'm suggesting would not be much of a change from comic-book tradition.

I'm not convinced Amy Adams has the complexion to pull off being brunette. Besides which, she's an absolute bombshell in her natural color.

Redheaded Lois FTW!

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

^ Agreed. Amy Adams' natural hair color > canon and is well worth a violation

And it will be fun hearing people complain about it in any event. Not as much fun as hearing people complain about Zoe Saldana getting the part, but fun.

But why are you suggesting it? The role's already been cast, and they're not going that way.
