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

    What do you mean? I'm right here.
    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.

    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 :rommie:

    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.

    "What the fuck, Clark? You're Super-fucking-man. Just rip Lex Luthor's dick off and use it to beat the shit out of him, already!"

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :p

    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*

    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.
