Maybe he'll play Hamilton's lab assistant.
Rachel McAdams was one of my top picks as well...my dream pick was Zooey Deschanel.
I love Maggie Gyllenhaaal, Scarlett Johansson is pretty much a goddess and Anne Hathaway can be quite lovely.
Margot Kidder? Never bought for a moment she was a Lois Lane. She didn't have the look and her raspy chain-smoking voice was hardly doing her any favors. It was hard to see what Superman would like in her and if we can't see that then it's hard to really buy into the relationship.
Margot Kidder was a terrible Lois Lane.
As said above, I think Teri Hatcher probably had the right balance between looks, being spunky and being a strong-willed "modern woman." It was easy to see why Superman would like her, it was easy to see why Clark would be interested in Lois on Smallville or even in Superman: Returns.
Margot Kidder? Couldn't buy it for a moment.
Why not? She wasn't superhot. She was normal. Even more flawed than any heroin in any movie I've seen, from her raspy voice to her sarcastic nature where she frequently put Clark and others like him down even as she complimented them. Superman loved her because he saw the person she really was inside. He was able to bore through all the layers that made her unappealing. That's what makes Supes great, he can do that with everyone.
I completely agree with everything you said.
"Autumn Frost" wrapped production in Vancouver on Thursday. While I'm always reluctant to post anything from ComicBookMovies.com and the article claims that someone on set took this picture, but this is the only thing I've been able to find on it so far.
I liked the Thank You!
Agreed. I love how Donner doesn't have Superman go for the hottest woman in the building in his movie, but a girl who is actually kind of a flawed, distracted, chain-smoking mess. It's a great, unexpected touch, and somehow Reeve and Kidder's chemistry totally makes it work.
And besides, any guy who seriously thinks THIS is hideous really needs to have their head examined:
Or see how the gay porn works for him.
Now please pay my co-pay for the MRI tomorrow.
Margot wasn't hideous or ugly, but she didn't have that timeless beauty quality that some other Lois's have had since. She was right for the part and how it was written in my opinion. She was a feisty and headstrong Lois Lane.
I think the biggest problem is just those awful 70's outfits and hairstyles she got stuck with. Even for the time period, they were ugly as hell.
I think the biggest problem is people seeing her as she is now even when looking at pics of her when she was young and cute.
As I think about it I really don't think she is ugly. It's just that smoking is one of the biggest turn offs that I know and there are a few scenes with her babbling with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth that just renders me disgusted.
In the words of the great Bud Bundy: "Yum, yum, give me some!"
She did the part very well. Coming from the George Reeves 'Adventures of Supermen' perspective, I never pictured Lois for her physical beauty, but for her 'take no prisoners' attitude, rather than 'woman as coffee bearer' for the hero more frequently seen when I was a kid. My qualm with Kidder's Lane was in scripting as she often came off less smart than I prefer Lois to be.
That's uncalled for. There's a distinct difference between genuine ugliness and someone who doesn't appeal to you. There are lots of types that don't appeal to me, but I'd never call them ugly let alone hideous.
That's StarTrek1701 for you and his impossibly high standards when it comes to women.
Henry poses in the suit with a young fan...Lana is cast as well.
I love how Henry looks in the costume...and am glad we're getting Lana in the film.
