I really thought Snyder would have got Joe Manganiello for Supes.
Would've been pretty weird to see Flash Thompson become Superman. Though I guess no weirder than the Human Torch becoming Captain America or Deadpool becoming Hal Jordan.

In the 90's an African American Lois Lane would have been ground breaking and interesting...now...it would just smack of desperation on the part of the film makers to get as much attention for their film as possible. It wouldn't hurt the film but the intentions would be less than noble of casting a black Lois...no matter how talented the actress is.

[edit] There has been more than enough time since the Reeve Superman movies to change the ethnicity of Lois and it hasn't been done...really no reason to start now.
There may not have been any actresses of color capable of playing alongside Chris Reeve.

Was Pam Grier busy that year?

She was in a movie in 1977 but nothing in 1978, 79 or 80.

Pam would have been a fun Lois.

Angela Bassett would have been excellent for Lois Lane in a 90's Superman film IMO. Even now she'd be great. She's still my number one pick for Storm.

I always pictured Vivica A. Fox as Lois if a Superman film was made in the mid-late 90's...really enjoyed her in ID4.

Terry Hatcher was great for 90's live action Superman.

Desperate? Not at all. The difference between the 90s and now in that regard is that it would be seen nwo as a great deal less worthy of attention at all other than passing acknowledgment as an unconventional choice.

The likelihood that it would do the slightest damage whatever to the movie commercial is just about nil; OTOH, any actor who has an active and devoted following can give a movie a little bump.

This kind of thing really matters to two distinct and separate kinds of people: retarded bigots and the sort of obsessive and troubled fans who worry that Amy Adams has the wrong hair color to play Lois Lane - and perhaps the only thing those groups have in common is that they're of negligable importance to a movie's success.

I never said it would damage the film.

The people who worry about Amy Adams hair are morons...I hope they keep it red personally.

Kate Bosworth dyed her hair for the part. Amy has had her hair dyed as a brunette before so I don't think this is a big deal at all.

It really isn't but if the film makers want Lois to be a redhead then there is a certain part of the fandom who need to get over it. Comments about how they most certainly will dye it brown are ridiculous.

[edit] What if they want Lois to be Blonde!?

Amen. There's no reason why Lois Lane can't be a redhead. For that matter, I don't think Bosworth should have had to dye her hair when she played Lois, either.
