    Well, she's younger than Mia Kirshner and Elizabeth Banks.

    Summer Glau? Seriously? :barf:

    She has the voice of a 12 year old.

    And she's not that good of an actor.

    Thankfully, it's not going to be her. She won't even get close to being cast.

    I think Summer Glau would be better suited for Lana Lang in the smallville portion of the movie.

    Rebecca Hall would be a good Lois. She's the right age, has the right look, is a good actress, and can play a sparky, determined character.

    She still doesn't seem 'like' Lois to me.

    I rather doubt the British Superman will speak with a British accent. After all, most of the non-American actors who've played American superhero icons altered their accents to sound like generic Americans. I expect the same will be true of this new Superman. I just hope they have a good script which doesn't include Lex Luthor. I really hope the villain is Darkseid or even Brainiac.

    No. She's not a great actress. She's really not.

    I think she's average. Some roles she does well with... others not so much.

    I think she's a good actress but she's not Lois.

    Summer Glau is great with Quirky, not quite right in the head roles, not so much with straight forward, mentally normal roles.

    Yes, much more suited to Summer Glau, IMHO

    She didn't get many opportunities to show it, but I thought Bosworth displayed plenty of spunk in the early scenes on the plane and in Perry's office. Unfortunately I think most people just have a hard time seeing anything past her young appearance.

    I would DEFINITELY love to see McAdams in the role though. She can be tough when she wants to, she's about the right age, and she's cute as all hell.

    I know this may be a long shot but I would love to see Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield, Mean Girls) get the job as Lois Lane.
