Beyonce would have been better than Kate Bosworth.
Beyonce (with a few exceptions) can't act her way out of a paper bag. Bosworth showed more class, daring, smarts, moxie, and guts as Lois Lane than anything else, just as much as Margo Kidder and Dana Delaney did, but without having to scream for help or being completely scared (look at the way she faced down Lex Luthor on-board the Gertrude, matching Luthor's words with hers, or the way she saved Superman after he saved her.) I doubt that Beyonce would have done better (then again, it was the way Lois was written in Superman Returns that brought out those qualities in Bosworth, most likely.)

Actress of color who could play Lois Lane:

Raven Symone

Zhang Ziyi

Kerry Washington

Sophie Okenedo

Regina King

Thandie Newton

Sanaa Lathan

Nia Long

Rachel True

Maya Rudolph

Sydney Tamiia Poitier

Salli Richardson

Rowena King

Rosario Dawson

Zoe Saldana

Tracee Ellis Ross

Leslie Silva

Carmen Ejogo

Nona Gaye

N’Bushe Wright

Rashida Jones

Essence Atkins

Victoria Rowell

Kellita Smith

Kristen Wilson

Sharon Leal

Persia White

Tatyana Ali (if she's still acting)

Naomie Harris

Megalyn Echikunwoke

Jennifer Hudson

Anika Noni Rose

Kandyse McClure

Grace Park*

Ming-Na Wen*

Maggie Q*

Jamie Chung*

Julia Ling
*

Smith Cho*

Brenda Song*

Vanessa Hudgens*

Kelly Hu*

*(I have listed Asian-American actresses because of the possibility of Sam Lane marrying an Asian woman, therefore making Lois [and possibily Lucy] also Asian!-Dusty)

Kate Bosworth could have played a great Lois Lane if she weren't meant to be the Margot Kidder Lois.

And the same goes for Kevin Spacey's Lex. I never got why people complained about him channeling Gene Hackman's Lex when he was supposed to be playing the same character in the same continuity as Hackman. I woud've complained if he hadn't played Lex the same as Hackman.

And Brandon Routh for that matter. I don't want to refresh the Returns arguments, but a large part of my issue with the movie was all the actors playing the Donner actors playing the parts, rather than playing the parts directly.

Or maybe what you think is funny actually isn't. It's pathetic when people with bad senses of humor assume that people who don't enjoy their jokes have no sense of humor. After all, it's called a sense of humor, which should imply the ability to distinguish between what's actually funny and what isn't. Having a sense of humor doesn't mean you laugh indiscriminately at everything -- especially not at cracks that are hurtful to entire categories of human beings, like denigrating people over 40.

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

I was wondering why Gabriel Union was left off Dusty's list of possible Lois Lanes of Color, but, then I checked IMDB and discovered she is 38, so her time for Lois has probably passed, but, I think she would've made a great Lois of Color

Just curious, but what do you think of Don Rickles?

I'm surprised no one mentioned Keri Russell for Lois. She screen tested with Routh

I dunno...I think Routh, while honoring Reeve, put his own spin on it. For example, his Clark wasn't nearly as buffoonishly geeky.
