Don't worry. Assuming she stays away from the cigarettes, I'm sure she'll age much better than Margot Kidder did. lol

Well, actually, it's pretty obvious who was Shane Davis' model for Lois Lane.

Not bad. Deb as Lois. I wonder if she sold her likeness similar to Samuel L Jackson.

Actually Amy is 36 and looks like she can play much younger.
I just hope it won't be 4 years between Superman films for Amy. I don't want to be distracted by her liver spots as the franchise plods along.
I'm just going to assume there was a "winky Face" at the end of that post, and you were actually poking a jab at those concerned about how old she is

Jennifer Carpenter could easily pull off Lois but Amy Adams is the obvious bigger name.

I don't think the studio wants an R-rated Superman.

That depends. Does Bad Bishop also post under the screen name Yoda?

The answer is NO.

Earlier in the thread I stated that I liked Amy Adams. I paid to see her Julia Child flick in the theater. I even watched Leap Year on cable despite the reviews.

I didn't include the "winky" on purpose. I am just having a little fun with the age issue, though I still wish that the actress playing Lois was closer in age to Cavill.

To Christopher, I'm really not "ageist." My favorite actress of all, Diane Lane (age 46), has been cast as Martha Kent, and I could not be more delighted.

Then you shouldn't make ridiculous and insulting cracks about being unwilling to look at women with "liver spots" even though they'd only be in their low 40s. If that was meant as a joke, it failed miserably.

Bryan Singer finally admits his Superman Returns mistakes.

But with Superman Returns. ... If I could go back, I would have tightened the first act."
Really?

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

He's already admitted his mistakes several times over the years, and really he doesn't need to apologize for "Superman Returns". It was classy of him to do so.

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

I don't think he needs to apologize either but as he states what he would do differently... tightening the first act is irrelevant to what he said later on.

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

I don't want this to turn into another "Superman Returns" debate (which is why I didn't bother to post that article here in the first place frankly) but really aside from Kate Bosworth as Lois and Kevin Spacey channeling Gene Hackman's Luthor my main problem is that instead of making an original Superman story, he chose to set this in a vague (using his own words here) continuation of the Donner universe. I think everyone was expecting a Bryan Singer Superman movie to be in it's own continuity. We got a sense of what an original story from him would be like but setting it in the DonnerVerse was a mistake I think. Other than that I think it's remarkable film. Not the film most fans wanted to see...but a remarkable film anyways.

Okay now that I've probably triggered three pages of Returns bashing I'll go away until it stops!

Sigh.

That's pretty much what I expected from you, one of the most humorless souls at TrekBBS.
