Of course, it’s kind of a running gag for comic book readers, how exactly can no one see that Clark Kent and Superman are one and the same all because of a pair of glasses? Sure, in spite of the obvious we believe that a man can be so thoroughly disguised by some eyewear, but it’s been in the back of our collective minds throughout the nearly eight decade history of the Man of Steel. Well, the jig is up! As part of the new normal after DC Comics‘ recent Convergence crossover, Superman is about to be exposed as Clark Kent and vice versa. (more…)
There’s been quite a bit of backlash over the Batman Vs. Superman movie, and although nothing could come close to Ben Affleck being cast as the new Dark Knight, there’s been quite a bit of unrest amongst fans over Gal Gadot being cast as Wonder Woman in the Man of Steel sequel. Well, new co-star Amy Adams thinks that fans shouldn’t be so quick to judge the Fast 6 star on something as silly as body size. (more…)

I need one of these in my living room… and I also need to know what happened to all of the wine that was in the barrel, because I need to drink it. [Obvious Winner]
Just a week and two days (well, one day if you count preview screenings next Thursday night) till the new Man of Steel hits theaters, and the clips are rolling in…
In this one, which was shown on Jimmy Kimmel during an interview with Amy Adams who, if you didn’t know, plays Lois Lane in the film, is an extension of a scene from the most recent trailer, with Lois and Superman (Henry Cavill) talking in a cell as the Man of Tomorrow is taken into custody by the U.S. military.
So what else is going on? Let’s tune in to Kimmel, already in progress…
What do you Bastards think? Excited to finally see this thing already?

We’ve seen all the trailers and the other promotions, so let’s get into the good stuff and some honest to God clips from the Man of Steel. First up is a familiar scene to Superman fans, over-zealous reporter Lois Lane (Amy Adams) getting chewed out by her boss, Daily Planet editor-in-chief, Perry White (Laurence Fishburne).
I can’t say I’m entirely sure what it is that Lois is in trouble for, but its some damn good watching and the dynamic, at least, feels right. To my mind, this movie can’t come out fast enough at this point.
“Iron What?” Now that Iron Man 3 has gobbled up all your allowance money for the month, let’s look forward to June 14 with another TV spot for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel.
In case you’ve forgotten, the film was produced by Dark Knight auteur Christopher Nolan, and written by David S. Goyer. Starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Pa and Ma Kent, Man of Steel retells and updates the origins of the Last Son of Krypton, how he came to Earth and how he embraced his destiny as the world’s greatest hero. It comes out June 14th in the theaters everywhere.
Here’s the action-packed new TV spot.

Before he came to Earth, the people of Superman’s homes planet Krypton had battled Brainiac, a cold and callous alien obsessed with the control of knowledge. Now Brainiac has set his sights on destroying Earth and finishing off the Last Son of Krypton once and for all. This epic battle will change Superman’s world forever.

The first official image of Amy Adams as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel has hit the Internet and although we did get a quick glance at Lois in the trailer, this is the first close up look at what changes might be in store for the character. Superman’s getting a make over, why not Lois?
She’s toting an Ipad around, and it’s more than just some product placement. The days of the pen and pad, even the tiny recorder are quickly dieing if not already dead. Most journalists these days work with pads, they’re easy to use, take pretty good pictures, and allow a reporter to look up things and verify facts, but is this Lois any different from past Lois Lanes? Let’s take a look.
Here’s the first woman to play Lois Lane on screen Noel Neill, shown with Clark Kent (Kirk Alyn) in this scene from SUPERMAN (Columbia, 1948). She later returned to the role of Lois Lane with George Reeves on television.
Phyllis Coates stepped in for Superman and the Mole Men (1951) which starred George Reeves as Superman and served as the pilot for the first season of Superman television show. She stayed for one season as Lois Lane and was replaced by the original, Noel Neill. One interesting note is Phyllis later returned to the world of Superman playing Ellen Lane, Lois Lane’s (Terri Hatcher) mother.
Next up is the one everyone recognizes Margot Kidder who played opposite Christopher Reeves in the Superman I through IV movies. Margot Kidder also appeared in two episodes of the television program Smallville as Dr. Bridgette Crosby, an emissary of Dr. Swann (played by Christopher Reeve). She declined to make a third appearance after Reeve’s death because she felt it would be doing his memory a disservice.
Teri Hatcher then took up the role in the ABC television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman for four seasons, starting in 1993, which featured the Lois and Superman taking their relationship to the next level and getting married.
Then came Actress Erica Durance who portrayed Lois Lane on the CW television series Smallville.
Actress Kate Bosworth played Lois Lane in the 2006 Bryan Singer directed film Superman Returns, opposite Brandon Routh as the Man of Steel.
Everyone’s got their favorite Lois, which one is yours? Margot Kidder is the one that comes to mind when Lois Lane is mentioned in conversation, but Terri Hatcher is Lois that most of my dreams are made of.
The DVD Box Set of Smallville Season Four had an interesting look at all the actresses who have played Lois Lane. The first of the video clips is below. Take a look and check out the rest on YouTube.
