UPDATE!! Is Jessica Biel A Frontrunner To Play Snyder's Lois Lane??

Published at: Feb. 1, 2011, 11:22 a.m. CST

Merrick again...

Received an e-mail overnight  - its sender details sighting Zack Snyder and Jessica Biel heading into a sit down meal at a restaurant I won't specify herein (the sender did tell me the name of the place, how he/she chanced across them, and said he/she spotted director and actress yesterday - Tuesday).  

Ironically, the sender said he/she recognized Zack instantly but took a few moments to track on Ms. Biel.  Definitive proof that she'll be Lois Lane?  Not even close, but an interesting (possibly corroborating?) development none the less.  

More as we know more...

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Merrick here...

 

THIS piece at What'sPlaying reveals the names they've heard to be orbiting the Lois Lane role in Zack Snyder's new SUPERMAN movie (starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman).  

Said to be among the contenders...

Rachel McAdams...who was previously connected to Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.  This could make some sense given that Cavill's orbiting of Nolan's BATMAN BEGINS purportedly placed him on Nolan's radar - thus helping him (eventually) land the title role in this Nolan-produced SUPERMAN gig.  Perhaps a similar pattern will unfold with McAdams?  

Dianna Agron, from Television GLEE.  

Malin Akerman, who played Laurie Jupiter/Slik Spectre II in Snyder's WATCHMEN.  The site conjectures she may be too old to play against Cavill's younger Kent/Supes.  Personally, I don't see that the age differential would be all that big a factor - or be particularly difficult to work around.  Although, not sure if she's bring the right "vibe" to the role.  

TWILIGHT's Kristen Stewart.  Not seeing how this would work.  Lois, as a character and personality, needs to be at least somewhat awake.  

And...the actress the site says may well have the inside track on becoming the new Lois Lane?  Jessica Biel.  

Again, this is all per What'sPlaying - it'll be fun and interesting to see how accurate such insight and forecasts are.  Click HERE for a bit more on the matter.

    Isn't Biel like 5'8" or 5'9"? She would almost be as tall as Cavill and definitly more athletically toned.

    And Jessica Biel is just too fucking hot...

    by WriteForTheEdit

    Seriously, her beauty is too distracting. I also vote for Rachel McAdams, out of that pool.

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 11:32 a.m. CST

    Kristen Stewart?!?

    by Acappellaman

    That would be the voice of the marketing department talking. No WAY she should have the role. Lois Lane's got energy and charisma through the roof. Kristen's heart rate probably never breaks 60bpm. Awful option. No way she gets it.

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 11:33 a.m. CST

    Yes, McAdams makes the most sense...

    by Judge Briggs

    She looks like a Lois Lane. Biel, notsomuch. She is just straight hot ... and as WritefortheEdit said, too distracting because of her hotness.

    by Yaroh_Meringue

    She comes off as an illiterate dullard. McAdams would be good as Lois. Smart and sharp. Jessica Biel should play an actual superhero, not a sidekick or girlfriend. She's an ideal She-Hulk if you have to cast a name. Malin Akerman. Blah.

    Zoey Deschanel for Lois Lane !!!

    by JackGraham

    with all due respect to miss biel, i can't say she's been that great in anything i've ever seen her do. She's attractive and she's not too young or waif for the part like kate bosworth was, but i find her too bland. Lois needs to be played by someone with a bit of street cred, someone with who is ballsy yet vulnerbale, and of course attractive with brain cells, someone like marion cottilard, who Nolan worked with on Inception, or Zoey Deschanel, I think she would be great as Lois.

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 11:43 a.m. CST

    the only mention of Lex should be..

    by ckone

    either his influence in the city of Metropolis from afar, or that he is in jail serving a sentance for a poorly planned land grab from six years prior, so that he is acknowledged, and then Superman can be free to face a true Superpowered foe. I don't care of it's Lex pulling the strings, but PLEASE make him a minor player... And a short short origin too, no need for an hour long homage to the origin. Hit us with Superman being super and saving shit all day long. I gotta see some superhero actually doing things that are super in one of these movies.

    Stewart? how old is she 16? and has anyone seen the A-Team remake? Biel is the most annoying "actress" I think I've ever seen outside of jennifer aniston.

    by HelveticaConspiracy

    First, Anne Hathaway ruins Catwoman. Then, Biel ruins Lois Lane. Damn you, Nolan!!!

  • Margot Kidder never did it for me, and her Lois came across as a pushy bitch a little too frequently. Kate Bosworth is pretty...but the FOREHEAD for God's sake. Couldn't take my eyes off it or her mismatched eye colors. I know a lot of times the tradeoff for looks is poor acting ability, but there MUST be an exception out there somewhere. There HAS to be a woman out there who looks like Hope Dworaczyk and can act in the same class as Meryl Streep.

    I'd buy Jessica Biel as Lois Lane

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    about as much as I bought Denise Richards as a Nuclear Physicist. Seriously, Biel's hot, but I've never seen her do anything I'd call good acting. And, after the miserable Lois we got from Kate Bosworth, as well as the3 brainy, but fugly LL we had from Margot Kidder (at least she had chemistry with Reeves), we need an actress that's gonna knock LL out of the park both physically and intellectually, and Biel ain't it. Out of the group mentioned, I'd say McAdams. She's cute and definitely has the brains and acting chops, but I'm really not feeling it. Out of left field, what about Olivia Wilde? She's proven on House she can play a smart, brainy type, and she's drop dead fucking gorgeous. Zooey Deschanel, while delectable, is almost too oddball for LL. She's a good actress, but tends to trend toward quirky, flighty characters, which LL is neither. Ellen Page might be able to pull it off, and has the Nolan connection, but may be just too short to stand next to Supes. Also, what about Julia Styles? Great actress, has the brains for the part, and after her performance recently on Dexter I'm convinced she's one breakout role away from being truly sought after. Just a little bit of armchair casting, but if this list is any indication they need a new casting director before we get yet another crappy Lois Lane for Supes to deal with.

    McAdams would be the best fit, I can sort of see Beil in the role if she brings some personality. It's no surprise than Akerman is there with her past with Snyder, but i still don't see her in the role. As for Kristen 'personality vacuum' Stewart, please keep her as far away as possible from this project. For some reason she really pisses me off and i haven't enjoyed any of her performances at all. If i wanted to see a miserable plank of wood for 2 hours, i'd talk to my wife.

    by GroolDemon

    is the best choice. She has more of the regular working american girl vibe going for her than Biel. Biel is just way to gorgeous. Not saying that Lane should be an ugmo or anything, just that she should be relatively average. The type of girl that is smart and very together, but has that realistic/fantasy duality that would lead her to go out with nerd like Clark Kent, but fawn droolingly over Superman. A good average american every woman that is up on the times, but likes the occasional crappy romance novel. Also, even mentioning Kristen Stewart is absolutely ridiculous. She is way too strung out looking to make any character other than a drug addict or cutter believable.

    Zooey or Rashida for Lois

    If it had to be one of those, then McAdams

    by under_the_radar

    Those choices aren't exactly inspiring. But of those, it would have to be Rachel McAdams. Kristen, Malin, and Jessica are all questionable when it comes to acting talent. And I like Dianna Agron, but don't really see her as Lois. Zooey Deschanel is a nice idea. And there are bunch of others who would be preferable to everyone on this list, save McAdams. If it wasn't a question of age, I'd suggest Amy Adams, but I guess she's too old. But Kate Bosworth was miscast (and too young) and so would Kristen Stewart be. Erica Durance from Smallville actually does a great Lois Lane, so someone as good as her. Rashida Jones is an interesting idea. Hopefully someone at Warner Bros. (or Zach Synder or Nolan) is reading all this and seeing that pretty everyone here wants Rachel McAdams or someone else not on this list.

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 12:42 p.m. CST

    That Dianna Agron must have given a hell of an audition...

    by thecomedian

    And knowing Snyder I bet she gets the part since he has a penchant for unknowns. Rachel McAdams main problem is that she looks too much like Kate Bosworth imho. I bet anything most mouthbreathers will think they kept the same Lois from "Superman Lifts". Malin Ackerman is human bobblehead and I don't think Snyder would go down the same road again with her. Kristen Stewart will probably turn this down anyway. Jessica Biel is too...Jessica Biel. She turned down Wonder Woman a few years back but now she's up for lois Lane!?! I guess she's hungrier for a payday this time around. You gotta go with a virtual unknown as Lois so she doesn't over shadow Superman. I bet you anything Dianna Agron gets the part or it will be some other virtual unknown. Allison Brie would be a decent choice too if she played it more like her bitchy MadMen Sugar-Momma character.

    by HarryKnowlesNonExistentInceptionReview

    Wouldn't the role of Lois Lane require that they cast someone who can act? Biel exudes the same blank vapidness that Kristin Stewart does so well. Just the fact that these non-talents are on the short list fills me with dread for this project. Too much Hack Snyder, not enough Nolan.

    by Kraken

    Please God, let it be someone who can act.

    by heyscot

    Which precludes Malin Ackerman and Jessica Biel. I have enough antipathy towards Snyder's action-porn movies, please let him get the casting right and let Nolan and Goyer do their thing.

  • Once Zack Snyder became Director the reins were passed to him especially since Nolan couldn't get the studio to give his brother a shot at directing this. Nolan's producer credit on this will mean about as much as Tim Burton's producer credit on Batman Forever. And since Snyder actually know how to make an entertaining film with visual spectacle and great action sequences(which is what Superman SHOULD be) I'm glad Chris Nolan can go make another cold, overrated "realistic" Batman film. My only concern is David Goyer's screenplay.

    Rachel McAdams is the best choice

    by Wormie1

    McAdams would clearly be a great choice for Lois, as long as she has dark hair! Stewart has lots of juicy offers already according to the linked article? Really, better than Superman? Because outside of Twilight, her Joan Jett and Adventureland movies were massive hits were they? She's too young anyway, as is Agron (who is lovely though). This was a problem with Bosworth last time. I would like to see Durance in the movie (original Lois Noel Neill starred alongside both Kirk Alyn and George Reeves), but that's unlikely to happen!

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 1:19 p.m. CST

    Wow - time to stand corrected...

    by Darth Macchio

    Well, so looks like Nolan's using Catwoman after all. Ugh. Don't get me wrong, from many perspectives, I love the Catwoman character and even sexless creepy aliens like girls in tight black leather, but I have also argued often that this character would not be congruous with the Batverse Nolan has created. Apparently, I'm wrong. Which isn't a bad thing! Latest now is that Anne Hathaway has indeed been cast as "Selina Kyle" but yet no confirmation on the presence of "Catwoman" as a character. Rumor has it Hathaway has done full costume testing so, I think obviously at this point, we're going to see yet another variation of Catwoman in DKR. Now, I did always say that I'd love to be wrong if it is done well and I still hope for that. But the character so narrowly strides the fine line between the dramatic characterizations of Nolan's Batverse and the more 'comical' take as seen in previous films or the comic books. One thing for sure, numerous people have already shown Nolan the route to NOT take when bringing this character to the screen. Burton and Pfeifer did it wonderfully if a tiny bit caricatured, on Batman Returns, we won't mention Berry's contribution (thought that film's suckage is not 100% her fault of course). So we can basically assume Nolan won't go those routes but then what routes are there to take that would fit within the existing narrative and within a rough timeframe of a single film? Color me skeptical that it can be pulled off but also hopeful to be proven wrong in the final outcome. As to Supes and Lois Lane - someone above has it perfectly - Lois should be physically attractive but not the "prettiest woman in the room" super-hottie but yet her personality would up the ante on her overall attraction to Supes/Kent. Margot Kidder, in this regard was excellent casting. She's not hideous obviously but yet not amazingly beautiful either. It's her drive and personality that make her so attractive. I utterly believe Supes anguished fury when he bolts off into the sky screaming in anger and despair after standing and looking at Lois's dead form in the car from Superman the Movie - I still get goosebumps and even choke up a bit - the moment is that powerful to me! Hard act to follow but not impossible!!! I tend to find facial coco-puffs distracting but yet Rachel McAdams is probably the best casting bet of the listed choices. She's not overly convincing as a badass but definitely passes for fiesty which is exactly what Lois should be, etc... Tho, I've been wrong a lot lately so I defer to the bones...

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 1:24 p.m. CST

    by matt

    At this point lois lane has very little to contribute to an epic Superman flix. I this tons of fights, and action, and explosions, and Superman in his right costume would do nicely. Like the action in Transformers two but without the giant balls.

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 1:35 p.m. CST

    Jada Pinkett Smith

    by Lucidz

    Is perfect for the role. The others are all wrong.

  • Since Nolan pretty much took most of the plot from Batman Year One and added in the bigger plot with Ras and The Scarecrow I'm hoping that's how they do Selina in this film. She's a prostitute in the narrows who's inspired by Batman and basically becomes a copy cat who tries to befriend him, become his partner but she gets the "I work alone" bit. She perfectly fits into the continued theme of "escalation". All that magical "9 lives" bullshit Burton did that was later copied in that awful Halle Berry film has nothing to do with the character. I think Catwoman would work in Nolan's verse since The Dark Knight ended with Batman descending further into darkness assuming this "Hero pretending to be a villain" role, now hunted by the authorities and feeling a false sense of guilt for what happened to Harvey Dent and Rachel Dawes. I could see Batman actually spending the 1st act of the film with Catwoman as his new partner who's enabling him to embrace the darkness until of course things go too far(she kills somebody). Yeah, it's cliche and I'm sure Nolan and his bro will come up with something more layered and complex but either way, the character will work fine in this universe. There's also the less complicated traditional version of her as merely being a brilliant expert Cat burglar with loose morals.

    Teri Hatcher Best Lois Ever

    by Autodidact

    Rose Byrne! But I guess she's in X-Men.. Maybe a bit hard to believe that Lois as played by Hatcher in that submoronic TV series was a Pulitzer prize winning journalist, but having now grown up to know several writers who are complete bimbos, maybe she did her research. What a set of rockets that girl had... Lois should have some tight T&A going on, project intelligence, and be something of a bitch. Biel's got a nice body especially that onion ass but I've never found her to have any charisma or believability in any role aside from when I cast her in my whack-off fantasies (thanks for the double-oral teamup with the grown-up younger sister from Party of Five, Jessica!). Margot Kidder was kinda haggard playing Lois, but she came across likeable even while being a cunt to Clark. Carla Gugino would have been good five years ago, but she's in her forties now isn't she? Rachel McAdams is probably the best choice out of current mainstream actors.

    by dvdhound79

    ...with Nolan chaperoning this, "stunt casting" shouldn't be a problem for us to worry about. And with names like Stewart and Beil in that list; along with McAdams (the best actress among the three) I believe the Stewart and Beil have no shot at being cast. Looks like they may go with an unknown for the leads and cast big with the villains and supporting roles. (Perry White and Lex Luthor)

    Who cares?

    by Subtitles_Off

    David Goyer's writing it. Zack Hackenstein is directing it. They hired a boy in the lead. This has got so many strikes against it already, they might as well cast Jessica Biel. Might as well keep the shit-brown-red and turquoise costume, too. While you're at it, have Lex Luthor give it to him from the front this time. A superhero who absorbs energy from the sun and converts that into ridiculous powers should at least be colorful and smile every once in awhile. Think that'll happen?

  • as I've vehemently defended Zach Snyder and Christopher Nolan and superman is my favorite hero. I've also prided myself on not "trolling" but I feel as though I've become what I despise. If Kristen Stewart gets cast, I swear to god I'll kill myself-that'll be on your head, Snyder. None of these people are right for this. Margot Kidder was ugly as shit, but she could act. Stop looking for the prettiest face and get some goddamned talent! On an untwisted note, I'm also very upset to learn that Parallax is the main vilain in Green Lantern. I had almost zero hopes for that film with Ryan Reynolds in it, but now all hope is lost-seeing as how they have completely destroyed the continuity of the story. Hal Jordan battling Parallax huh? Fucking bastards...

    by Darth Macchio

    Very true how she totally smoked Margo Kidder. Same for Margo Hemingway and Annete O'toole in the latter sequels. But something about Kidder worked even though I didn't find her that attractive...she's not hideous as I said earlier but not dropdead gorgeous either. But I always cared for her character and even when she treated Kent like an ass, I didn't hate her. But that fiesty and firery personality is definitely needed for this character. She's not a damsel in distress but not a badass either. Biel is way too sexy for Lois Lane. She's basically too smokin hot sexalicious for anyone other than herself (she looked odd in the victorian getup in 'The Illusionist' but i dont think her acting was as bad as some of you seem to think - but she is distractingly hot) Unfortunately, most women I ask won't wear the Ursa supersuits I make out of edible panties.

    Remember... Pixar says "It gets better."

  • Lois needs to be played by someone who seems like they could hold their own in a bullpen of male reporters, or out on a dangerous investigation. Yeah, it isn't the 50's any longer (hell, it's questionable whether the Daily Planet would even be a newspaper in this adaptation), but Lois should be believable as someone who got to the top of her profession and didn't do it on looks alone. I'm surprised that Ellen Page wasn't on the list after doing "Inception" for Nolan. She's feeling a bit overexposed right now (which is odd, since she really hasn't been in all that much) but out of younger actresses she has the best demeanor for Lois, in my opinion. She's definitely younger than I would cast if I were calling the shots, though.

    Alison Brie as Lois

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    I honestly dont know shit (or care) about Lois Lane, but I really got a huge crush on Brie now so I wouldnt mind her being cast. ever since Community mentions her breasts in every other episode, made me realize how cute she is... sad to see she dies in the Scream 4 trailer though other good choices I saw... Michelle Monaghan, chick is nice. I like the not so gratutious titty shot in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang but we all know Rachel McAdams would be perfect. also another chick that is nice and if somehow Malin Ackerman is cast, SHE BETTER GET FUCKING NAKED. thats the only legitimate excuse to cast her in anything (have you ever not seen her get naked?)

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 4:19 p.m. CST

    Rachel McAdams would be perfect.

    by SmokingRobot

    Jessica Biel - first really stacked Lois Lane. Could be interesting. I actually think Kristen Stewart would make a fine LL. Go ahead, shoot me. I enjoy the Twilight movies, too. Sure, they're not exactly Shakespeare. But they have an amiable likability to them.

    Meh

    by Bobthegrinch

    I'm not particularly supportive of any of these as Lois Lane. Not that some of them aren't good actors. I think Kristen Stewart was good in Adventureland and Panic Room back in the day. Rachel McAdams hasn't been in a particularly good film as of yet but I think she has talent and does well with the (generally poor) material she chooses. I just don't see the ballsy head strong confident and determined qualities that made Margot Kidders Lois Lane so appealing in any of these actresses. Now obviously sticking too close to the Richard Donner Superman asthetic was a problem with Superman Returns but Lois Lane is a tough lady. It's part of who she is and I don't see that in anyone on this list (I thought Biel maybe until I remembered the authority she lacked in The A-Team). I'd be looking at Michelle Williams for this role and if she wasn't interested I'd give Carey Mulligan an audition. Perhaps they wouldn't fit but I suspect both have the capability to play the strength required and in my opinion can act anyone on this list off the screen.

    by zinc_chameleon

    No, I mean it. I just watched 'Piranha 3d' for a laugh and was shocked at how strong a personality she's got. She's so commanding it seemed like she was in another, better movie. And looks-wise, she was *born* for superhero movies. And finally, how do we first meet her in 'Piranha'? At an ice cream stand, doing girl-talk with an eleven-year-old. She was too much talent for that movie; I'm expecting a breakout role soon. But wait, she's 31, so she might be too old?

    by antonphd

    Every single movie she has been in has made less money than expected. It's because people think she's annoying. Blade 3 was only good at all because of Ryan Reynolds. Don't cast her in films Hollywood. Nobody how good she is at sucking your cock or eating your pussy. She's a box office cooler.

    Did you know....

    by mastermold

    Margot Kidder was 29 going on 30 when she did the first Superman, as opposed to Christopher Reeve who was 25. Worked out pretty well, I think. Incidentally, she was a hot little number who was believable as a reporter. Lois Lane needs to be played by a woman, not a prepubescent little girl like Kate Bosworth or Kristen Stewart.

  • She is still the best Lois Lane to ever grace the screen. The right amount of spunk and sexuality to satisfy the role.

    by ChickenStu

    Look guys... and I'm talking to the guys here... It's happened to all of us. We've been working in an office, or a warehouse, or anywhere... and there's always been ONE WOMAN COLLEAGUE. One woman colleague, who was 5-10 years older than us, who for some reason got us pretty worked up. We'd accidentally brush past her, and catch a whiff of her perfume - and we'd have to run to the toilet to work it out of ourselves. We've all encountered that woman. That woman who was so blissfully unaware of how damn hot she was, would always think we were kind and sweet, without ever truly knowing that we would sell one of our kidneys to FUCKING NAIL HER. Supes needs a woman like that.

    by elsewhere

    I personally think she is a better choice for Lois than the actresses mentioned. Jessica Biel has too much of a tomboy look to her and Kristen Stewart comes across as an immature cunt. Rachael McAdams isn't a terrible choice I suppose.

  • And they can even give her a fake English Accent so we can have an Englishman playing an American hero fighting an American playing a villain with a British accent. Probably won't happen though.

    by Bobthegrinch

    is a great shout and is obviously on Nolan's radar (she was in the prestige) and her work in Red Riding alone is better than anything on any of the other actresses apparently being considered but I don't see it ever happening. No idea who Lisa P is, but yeah, I still do think Stewart was good in Adventureland.

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 6:43 p.m. CST

    Malin Akerman- absolutely buy it!

    by Turd Furgeson

    She's a WOMAN, and wouldn't be physically overpowered by the boy playing superman. The thing that worked so well with Reeves and Margo Kitter was that they both looked like ADULTS, and Routh (who I thought was great) and Blue Crush chick was they felt way too young (it was laughable that blue crush was playing a pulitzer prize winning writer). Akerman will bring maturity to the role AND the looks + Coy sexual playfulness needed... I like it!

  • Was the last "purely spank bank material" Lois Lane. I did like her take on the character wanting be taken seriously even though everyone at The Planet probably thought she blew Perry White to get her job. She also got Lois' cynicism down pretty well. But as the scripts got sillier she just got skinnier and more annoying.

  • I didn't see Sherlock Holmes so all I know her from is Mean Girls and The Notebook. She just seems kinda boring. I used to confuse her with Elizabeth Banks all the time. Elizabeth Banks would actually be a better Lois if that's the case but I don't even think she (Banks) would be that great in the role. I have a feeling it's going to go to Dianna Agron since she's the only non-name amongst them. Either she gave a fucking awesome audition to be on this short list with all these actual names or she must give a kick ass performance in "I Am Number 4." I bet it ends up being her or someone not on this list.

    I seriously thought McAdams played Lois in Returns.

    by chris2c2

    IMDB'd it and STILL didn't believe it. She and Bosworth are SO much alike in that. Even down to the voice and mannerisms. I think she or Ackermen should get it. Not Biel or Stewart, please. I trust Nolan and Snyder.

  • Look Heath Ledger was awesome in the part but The Joker bigger than him and JGL looks just like him so it makes sense. The Joker is Batman's greatest villain. He deserves to live again on screen even if it's just in a cel in Arkham pulling strings and having Hardy's Bane do his dirty work. But Nolan's going to stick to his guns just like he did in not using any villains from previous film in this third one...oh wait.

    I agree that Jessica Biel should play a superhero

    by PULL_SMASH

    She has a sexy yet athletic look that would be PERFECT for a Wonder Woman, Invisible Woman, really any female superhero role. But I do not see her as Lois Lane at all. <p>Kristen Stewart. Really? That's idiotic. <p>Malin Ackerman I could actually see working. I guess alot of people didn't like Watchmen, but I dug it, and I thought she did a good job in it. I feel like she doesn't have much of a chance against some of these other girls, though. <p>Rachel McAdams is a solid pick. She has the perfect look for Lois for me, and she's been good in everything I've seen her in. <p> Latino News is reporting they have reliable information that the role may go to Olivia Wilde. I think that's a very interesting choice. Wilde is sooo sexy and I could see her pulling off the ball busting and "I've gotta prove Im just as tough as the boys" news-woman attitude that defines Lois Lane. <p> For me it's a tie between McAdams and Wilde with slightly more interest in Wilde's take on Lois.

    RE:McAdams is the same age as Akerman

    by BenKeeKnobKnee1

    They may be the same age but Akerman looks like she's been ridden hard and put away wet...nice body but AGED face (or too much tanning). Besides, I don't think she has the acting chops...she's fine on rom com fluff ("couples retreat") but,....for whatever else was WRONG with "Watchman", her character is supposed to be THE emotional lynchpin...and she's TERRIBLE and completely dropped the ball. Soap opera emoting at best. McAdams in a walk, though Rashida Jones (a black Lois) and Emily Dechanel (Zooey's sis...the 'Bones" chick) would be interesting choices too. As to Biel....please, get real....

    Still Maintain Teri Hatcher Was The Best

    by Autodidact

    Yes the show was utter garbage... honestly just a few notches above the Superboy series of the late 80s. But Teri Hatcher really was the perfect Lois... so goddamn hot it would distract even Superman. I do agree with the poster above who suggested no romance.

    by spydermanlee

    I realize that the comments here are from of the geekiest fanboy people around, but I still find it funny that while the general consensus by lots of the posters is that McAdams would be the best choice, they're just gonna go with Biel or someone else anyway. As far as age goes, why not have Lois be older. The whole "cougar" thing is popular these days. How many leading men get paired with women ten years younger? Why not reverse it here.

    Biels could make a decent Lana Lang but not Lois. Mcadams just strikes me as an older version of Kate Bosworth. I don't even know why they're interviewing Kirsten Stewart. I hope they consider Zooey Deschanel or Gemma Arterton. If we want a younger actress, I like Addison Timlin who is currently on Californication.

  • Feb. 2, 2011, 12:44 p.m. CST

    Don't like any of those choices and don't trust Snyder with Superman.

    by moonlightdrive

    Snyder is too stylistic. He's wrong for Superman and his casting choices, whilst ok for the other movies he's done, don't work for Superman. Really don't want to watch two hours of McAdams in anything, let alone this. Biel is hot but wrong for this part. A lesser known actress would be best.

    by Darth Macchio

    ...that chin looks indestructible, seriously. When she had the bangs cut thing goin on in Watchman, it looked liker she could bite the wallpaper right off your wall without scrunching her nose. Like, if she was laying down and someone poured water over her face, hardly any would run over the sides of her head as her face sort of has "plate"-like tendencies. Not saying she's fugly or anything of course (she looked great in 'couples retreat' or whatever it was) but I think she's not the best fit here. But she'll probably get the role as she's likely cheaper than the others and Snyder's already worked with her.

    Lois should be smart, sexy and spunky. Margot Kidder fit two of those, but she was really not very attractive. Phyllis Coates, Noel Neill and Teri Hatcher were all attractive, but were not totally right either. Erica Durrance is beautiful, but I hate that terrible show and haven't seen her on it, so I don't know if she's lacking or what. She doesn't necessarily have to be "hot", but she does have to be sexy, like Lois in the comic books.

That is a movie made by a retard moron stupid idotic fuck. Movies do reflect some of what a filmmaker is, and 300 shows what a complete stupid retard Zack The Hack is. Then the fuck-ass decided to try to pull a smart and fucked up WATCHMEN beyond all possible recognition. Fuck if this assclown isn't stupid! Stupid and ignorant. Fuck Zack The Hack and his stupid ignorant ass! And the fucking SUCKER PUNCH movie doesn't look any better. This stupid ass is quite a piece of work!

    Stanley Kubrick was also a techie

    by AsimovLives

    He started out as a photographer. And he always was updated on the latest tecnological evolutions in anything regarding filmmaking and other stuff. But despiste him being a techie, he still could film a story and make actors deliver great prformances. Other techie directors? Fritz Lang, Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Brian De Palma, Akira Kurosawa, David Lean, Orson Welles, John Ford, D.W. Griffith, Charles Chaplin, Luc Besson, John Carpenter, Christopher Nolan, Neill Bloomkamp, Ridley Scott, David Cronenberg, Paul Verhoeven, George Romero, Werner Herzog, Peter Weir... and you know what all of them have in common? They can also tell a story and get good acting from their actors. The technie excuse means nothing in lieu of excusing Zack The Fucking Hack Snyder's shortcomings. Or Jar Jar Abrams. Or Mickey Shit Bay. If they are only good at the techie stuff, then they have no business directing movies, they should stick to just be second unit directors for shooting shit that explodes.

    Asimov, Re: "fucked up WATCHMEN beyond all possible recognition."

    by THE_CHOPPAH

    What are you talking about. Snyder almost completely copied the comic to the point of framing particular shots. If anything, it was too faithful an adaptation and he forgot that film are different animals than comic books and therefore require a different form of storytelling. One thing that Watchmen fanboys can't say is that Snyder wasn't faithful to the comic. Well, except for the giant squid which would have looked stupid on film.

    by AsimovLives

    Yes, Snyder copied some of the frames of the comic. That's the extent of his "faithfulness" for the comic. But he compeltly subverted the message and theme sof the comic. The fucked didn't understand the comic at all. Adn then he repelaced all the smart stuff in ther comic by his own retarded mindless braindead shit. What i see in the movie is the typical arrogance of a fucking hack who thinks he's so smart and can out-smart the creator of the original story. A creator who is, by all standards, a genious, one of the few to truly deserve such accolade in the medium of comics. Zack The Psussy Ass Dumb Idicot Hack Snyder thinks he can out-smart Alan Moore, the pudrid piece of shit fuck! There is no faithfulness in in Zack The Hack Snyder's HACKMEN. Nothing at all! The retarded idioc completly missed the point and FUBAR the movie beyond redeption. I can't blame anybody who will never give a fuck about the comic due to their experience watching the movie. Who can blame them? Zack The Fucking Hack Snyder is like Jar Jar Piece Of Shit Abrams, two fucks who think they can improve on the works of much better authors by making dumb ass stupid retard movies versions of great and smart original works. This hacks have egos the size of Jupiter with nothing to really show for it. They should get a Jupiter shoved up in their stupid fucking untalented hack asses, the stupid fucks! The fuckers should be sent back to the black hole of mediocrity they came from.

    I'm tired of hearing that argument that the squid would look stupid. Yes, the giant squid would look stupid in THE ENGLISH PACIENT. But we are talking about WATCHMEN. A movie that is set in a paralel 1980s decade where Nixon is still president, and a bunch of middle aged guys used to dress up in stupid costumes to fight crime and there is a CGI big guy with a huge CGI cock who acts like a Superman mixed with God. And after watching all that for two hours, suddently a giant squid pretending to be an extra-terrestrial Lovecraftian monster is where the line would be crossed? Nonsense! In fact, the squid as an alien from out of Earth threath makes absolute sense for the Oxymandias gambit to work. To blame Doctor Manhantham is moronic beyond belief. I can tell that Zack The Fuicking Retard Snyder cannot think in any other way then purely from an american redneck perspective, which means, he thinks american thing = world thinking. The thing is, since Dr Manhanthan was an american, and he caused such devastation, and not just in New York (the movie does tell that other cities in the world were destroyed), the rest of the world would be united, yes, AGAISNT THE USA! As played in the fucking stupid retard movie, that shit wouldn't bring world piece, it would unite the world to make war against the USA. If anything, it would give cause for the USSR to attack and atom bombed the shit out of the USa, with the rest of the world applauding in revenge glee. Zack The Retard Fucking Idiotic Hack Snyder didn't think this shit through. Small wonder, because that stupid illiterated idiot can't. He is a stupid ass who made a stupid movie. But he thinks himself so clever. He can't evne understand the meaning of the word clever even if he read the definiton on a dictionary. He's idiotic and illiterated beyond belief. The George W. Bush of comic movie directors.

    only a stupid moron writes in as simple reductive terms as Asi,

    by Smack_Teddy

    and draws as simple reductive moronic lines in determining peoples smarts and tastes in movies as hack writer-analyst Asimov does.... And yet i cant help but agree with im to some degree or in some respects. 'How bout that?...<p>...What do i think Nolan sees in Zack Synder?: Mood, tone, style and - don't snigger - heart/ soul, through very competent understanding of utilising spatial & temporal forms/structures and advanced film tech. All of which were proved very effectively in Watchmen, despite its various flaws and failures to adapt what made the origional so good to cinema. <p>He's betting that with a origional script designed for the film/cinema medium in the first place... and without the pressures/complexities/hang-ups of how or why to go about adapting one of the greatest comics/graphic novels of all time thats sits in and reflects upon its own mediums form/body of text and its use so near-perfectly.... Zack will knock it out the park on the new Superman front<p> <p> ...That or Nolan is secretly a Neo Nazi using Batman movies to put more lucrative Nazi gold into production and actually hates Superman, thinks HËS the evil fascist and wants us all to cry over his stupid movie and watch it fail in the popular world wide cultural hemisphere. Can i get a fist-bump Asi?<p> But no the former is my two cents or bet on what Nolan sees in Zack Synder.<p> I don't know what to make of this Jessica Biel business. I'm the guy who thought Mary Louise Parker would be a great Lois back when Weeds and that Angels in America adaptation came out, but now i'm not so sure and this Lois is a young one. I hate to say it but Erica Durance of all the things about Smallville really IS a young Lois Lane to me, shes so perfect or uncanny casting in that respect. They need to find someone like her that fts Synders tone or vision and the material. I don't get the same from Biel, whos work i know much better than Henry Cavill's.

    Of course a dullard like any one of the Choppahs would think that. Here's the thing Asi might understand that most of you nitwits --- certainly Zack Hackenstein --- don't understand: When someone reads a fukken comic book, they are inserting all sorts of s#!t BETWEEN the panels. Alan Moore wrote a story. That story had a mood. The movie of that story needed to convey that same mood. Impersonating panels doesn't do it. Um, not even close.

    if you see Watchmen its there in tone and mood alone. I agree completely what you say about the origional comic and panels...but i still think Synder did a good job in many respects, i disagree in that he did not just copy it straight...he did alot of panels, but unlike 300 he really advanced and got what to do adapting this to moving images form with transitions in its own right when its came to those images. Maybe you don't see that, but i swear its there. This movie will free him up to evolve what i think he brought alot of to Watchmen, which was unfortunate as it still tunred out to pale in comparison to what we loved about the comic. But it had some great momernts in its own right, and while i would never compare the two its like saying Kubrixk has no heart/soul and ...yeah your wrong. We'll see.

    LOVED SNYDER'S WATCHMEN, NEVER HAVING READ MOORE'S

    by BringingSexyBack

    Which is probably why I enjoyed it so much - as a movie fan, not a comic geek. The look of the film was unique and artful. Everything about it just plain worked. Yes, stylistically, Snyder lays it on thick. But for the subject matter, it absolutely works. I don't get how you can say he has no heart and soul. 300 simply has the most stirring performances and exposition. I have absolute faith in Snyder taking on Superman. Thank GOD he is. Time after time we're presented with true hack work on comic book properties. Singer, Ratner, Story ... it's downright depressing that great characters are in the hands of people who know, and care, fuck all about them. Not so with Snyder. This guy is a godsend to comic book movie-making. I'm not crazy about Biel as Lois, but if he chooses her he must have good reason. He's proven that he can coax great performances from all his actors. No reason to believe he won't now.

    that Snyder is nolan judged fairly, as in without the fan-boy haze. Snyder, like nolan, is an undeniably gifted, but flawed director. They've yet to make their best films. If Snyder could get over his fascination with speed-up/slow-down action sequences, crap soundtracks(his best song choice was a shameless coppola ripoff) and crap acting, and nolan could get over, well, himself they are capable of making great films.

According to the article they have shortlisted 3 women for the female lead which isn't Lois Lane and it isn't the villain either. Even without the romance subplot (which I'd like to see developed gradually), Lois Lane is an integral part of the Superman mythos and for Snyder and Goyer to downplay her in favour of something "new" makes me kinda mad.

    smack_teddy

    by AsimovLives

    I don't do simplistic opiniating about movies. I leave that to asses like Braindrain. I focused on the problems that plague all of Snyder's movies. And the problems is that Snyder is an uncultured idiot who thinks himself smarter then he is. You don't need to be a genious to figure that out. You do not need to be his enemy to see that either. Despiste all i say about Snyder, i still like his first movie. He did a good job on that movie. His DAWN OF THE DEAD remake is the only movie he ever made where he plays by his strenghs and he doesn't try to play smarter then he is. It's the only movie he made where he never went self-indulgent on his adolescent obsessions. It is his most honest movie. You say that Snyder has good spacial understanding of the action. You know, i partially agree with you on that. He does show such understanding, whenever his action scene are not about him jerking off with the camera speed nonsense stuff he did in 300 and also, sadly, in WATCHMEN, which in the later completly defeated the point of the comic for the sake of some juvenile notion of "kewl" action shit. For you, i'm going to tell you which i think if Snyder's best quality in his filmmaking: he's a master in chosing existing music for his movies' scenes. They always work very well. The only slipage he ever did was using "Halleluliah" in a fuck scene, which turned it inadvertedly comedic. Otherwise, he's always dead-on, and he had a brillant idea in using that Philip Glass's music for the Doctor Manhantam in Mars sequence. When i detest an hack or a movie, i don't do that becaue one day i woke up on the wrong side of the bed and ate a bad pizza. I always have very good reasons for that. If you agree or disagree, that's not my problem. But i'll not go easy on anybody who will disagree with me based on bullshit inane reasons, if you know what i mean.

  • Not only it makes sense in-universe - Lane is an already established reporter with a reputation - but it would also be a nice change that, for once, the leading lady would be older then the younger leading man, while still being young enough and sexy. And being spunky doesn't end with teenage or young adulthood, you know? It stays for life.

    The strenghs/qualities of the hacks

    by AsimovLives

    In this post, i'm not going to bash the hacks i detest. I'm going to coment on their strenghs and qualities as filmmakers. To wit: Zack Snyder: A master in the use of existing music for scenes. JJ Abrams: A master in advertizement. It is his only strengh as a filmmaker, but he's brillant at it. Robert Zemeckis: An incredible ability for visual presentation of a scene, and a master in camera framing, camera placedment and camera movement. McG: Quite good at making light-weight fluff comedy. Brett Ratner: A master mimick artist. He can imitate the visual filmming style (but not the heart) of any other filmmaker. John Moore: Apt in noticing and then using the latest in-fashion overblown filmmaking and editing style for an action scene (and then overabuse it to the point of nausea). Ron Howard: He's a fish in water when making light-weight fluff movies, specially comedies. Very good at getting good acting from his actors (it helps that he used to be an actor himself). Simon West: He can actually downplay on the hack tricks when the scenes need it. A rarety among hacks. Tony Scott: When he bothers to, he can truly make beautiful looking movies which are well paced and get good performances fom his cast. Ocasionally he doesn't get in the way of a good script. When be bothers. Michael Bay: He has absolutly no talents, skills, strenghs or qualities whatsoever. He's godawfull at everything that has to do with filmmaking. His "talent" is that he has no talent. He is pure raw anti-talent.

    by Smack_Teddy

    Thats not what i meant specifically, go back and read what i said. <p>"Snyder is an uncultured idiot who thinks himself smarter then he is"<p> I'm sorry but im going to need proof or for you to at least elaborate on this, as this seems like your misquote about what i said: something not entirely true without the facts to back it up (of which buried in your JJ rants by a ratio of about 100:1 are valid objective points/facts). I agree i think Dawn of the Dead might be 'his' most honest or pure movie, but Watchmen proves he is capable of alot more than the 300 gimikery, its just ironic he was looking to serve the origional material so well i believe his overall work personally as afilmmaker/artist was compromised. This is just my sense, and that Superman with the right script could suprise you alot. Like alot. And yes shockingly i am aware i am appealing to the guy who hates JJs Trek that much. I do think its strange as a choice coming from Nolan though and he is taking a huge leap of faith here, but i think? i get it: he's proud to watch a filmmaker and his talents evolve like this so unashamedly/barefacedly in public despite certain superficialities, he wants such a guy to handle Clark Kent/Superman

    'If you like JJs Trek your a retard, you don't get art and what good cinema is if you dig Hack Synder' F you if you think my love for art cinema and other directors working with Blockbusters like Nolan is superficial just because i happen to have a blindspot that makes me like new Trek, just because a reality in which i could get and like both doesnt possibly exist; please nip that shit in the bud, is what im trying to say i think<p> Also i didnt find "Halleluliah" unintentionally comedic.

    by Smack_Teddy

    "look how much he fucked up & misintepreted the real meaning of Watchmen through changing its ending" All that proves is they identified a need to change what worked in the comics so well because most people who read the comics were steeped in comics mythology-meaning, but concurrently the same could not be said for a cinema audience. It may be the wrong choice, i think it is, but it doesnt prove for a second hes trying to outsmart Moore or his audience. Real proof or elaborate please Asi!

    moviemack, to elaborate on your coment...

    by AsimovLives

    ... too often i have sen people in here justify movies just because they belong to a genre. I have seen people justify and defend many bad action or SF or horror movies just because they belong to those genre. In their argumentation, it seems that they take à priori that if a movie is action, horror or SF they are inherently dumb, silly and stupid. So, whenever a movie of those genre is bad and stupid, they take it in stride. Personally, as a fan of SF, i feel insulted by that. Genre is not an excuse. Genre is merely a classification. Genre doesn't excuse bad filmmaking whatsoever. There has been made too many movies which have proved, again and again, that SF, horro and action movies can be very well made, dramatic, fascinating, interesting, intelligent and entertianing all at once. For me, there is only two type of movies: they are either good or bad. Genre means nothing at all in regard to their qualities. And genre certainy is no excuse for bad dumb movies. Anybody who thinks otherwise are not good movie geeks. They should try some other hobby instead.

    Don't take me the wrong way, friend, but let me just say this: it's not right to call somebody else a troll just because you disagree with him. That's not a troll. The disruption that a troll causes has nothing to do with expressing a divergence opinion, no matter how emphatically he might do. Trolling is liek if soembody comes in here, posts repeated post about something that has absolutly nothing to do with the subject of this talkback, and all he causes is a real disruption. That's trolling. Dudes who disagree with you are not trolls. They are just dudes with different opinions. And the way we deal with them is to discuss their oen opiniosn and offer very good counter-arguments based on intelligence, logic and knowledge, or if you can't take on them, just ignore their presence. Calling them trolls is uncalled for.

    From interviews I've seen Snyder was very passionate about the source material. The reason the movie lacks heart is Snyder puts more stock in sfx than acting. The acting comes across as cheesy and rips the soul out of the movie.

    Um, he's the one, isn't he, who has proclaimed himself obsessed with Ryan Reynolds' abs and wished there were a "two-hole" inflatable of Chris Evans? There's nothing wrong with the gay lifestyle. Nothing morally wrong. Nothing conceptually wrong. Nothing to be insulted about. However, I would think a gay man looks at something like WATCHMEN or Superman differently than a heterosexual man. That's my assumption. Calling people "morons" is an insult. It is also a description of people who like WATCHMEN. Learn to love yourselves as you are, people.

    ..I think that Zack is a good Director especially in regards to action/fantasy and Horror based films. Watchmen wasnt as flawed as many are so quick to think although that sex scene was unintentoinally hilarious. (I'm sure Orci wrote that scene when handling the script polish.) besides the fight scenes and intro i was impressed by the standout performances courtesy of Jacke Early and Jeffrey Morgan(rorshach and Comedian respectively.) who added credibility to a comic adaptation. he has potentual and is not in the league of hacks like PWSA or to a lesser extent, Bay.

    You can't be a good director if your skills is just in one area. Supposedly that Zack is a good visualist, just that doesn't make him a good director. A good director is skilled in more then one areas of filmmaking. See Martin Scoprsese as a triunphant example of a good director, who is skilled with scripting, visualization and making his actors deliver strong powerful prrformances. That's a god director. Zack is not. To be charitable to him, he's rather limited. I wasn't impressed with Zoe Saldana's acting either. She hasn't imrpessed me in neither the Abrams movie whose tile i shall not name, nor in Avatar,. If anything, her acting jobs in those movies has predisposed me against her. Her acting choices for her roles she has players are questionable to say the least. She only sems to play one role, the unsufferable arrogant obnoxious stuck up bitch. She is a looker alright, no denying that. But is she more then just that? I doubt. I kenw right away that Harry's animation above is from THE SHINING. But of all the things to parody/hommage form that movie, Harry choses that? The man is trting to say something, man, the man is trying to say something. But i don't care if he comes out as gay, i'll still like the big fella.

    I'm doing great especially since it's friday. I don't know if you responded to my last post to you (In the Golden Globes thread which for some reason, cannot be opened due to constant server crashes methinks.) but i was curious about your opinion regarding the Let the right one in remake. you never hold back when speaking your mind and since LTROI is a favorite of yours, i had to hear your take on matt reeves adaptation. (I actually thought it was a good attempt and you can't disregard it's chilling cinematograpy and that 80's vibe.To me, it's a welcomed change from the garbage that passes as horror films as of late. (citing, Saw and I spit on your grave.) As for Zac, I think he delivers when it comes to genre specific films. His work is aestetically pleasing and there's a bit of character/soul when it comes to characters themselves be it DOTD or watchmen.I really can't say much for 300 since it was mostly an action, not story driven vehicle which was very short on substance (even leonadas' death didn't really move me in conparison to jake weber's demise in DOTD.) but the film was entertaining and nothing more. I'm hoping that Sucker Punch will be another hit, but the premise of the protagonist imaging all this shit is disappointing to say in the least..almost like Pan's Laberynth. We'll see if he can deliver the goods with Supes, being as i was pissed off at Singer's rehash, i'm confident that he'll do just fine. Hope you're doing good as well

    I'm yet to see LET ME IN, but there is nothing in this world that can convince me that it can in any way match or surpass the original swedish movie, except the budget. If the movie is good, average good, i'll not be too suprised. Matt Reeves does show potential. It's a pity this guy has been wasting away under the skirts of Jar Jar Abrams all this years. I suspect that what most people praise about Abrams is in fact what Reeves has done under his aegis all this years. Abrams was never shy about steal the good work and the thunder of others and pass it as his own. I hope in the future Reeves becames his own man. As for LET ME IN, i'm pretty sure the movie will be what it is: a dumbed down, unsubtle version of the swedish original. Holywood movies have became so blunt nowdays that when one tones the bluntless a bit down, they get mistaken for subtle, too subtle. It's ad. What makes the original LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is how subtle and ambiguous it is, which is part of the whole fun and what it makes it so great. Zack the Hack has made nothing but genre movies. And even in those he has showed nothing but to be a juvenile immature illiterate fool. The visuals, i have seen Zack's visual style many times before and better made in the movies made by much better filmmakers. And there's nothing in this world that can make me forgive the stupidity and idioticy that runs rampant in Zack's movies. Stupidty and idioticy are things that are completly unexcusable in films and filmmakers. Nothing can cleanse that away for me. I did noticed that Zack tried to gorw a brain and tried to make WATCHMEN smarter then his previous movies. I also noticed how spectaculary he failed at that. Becasue you can't have a dumb illiterate idiot make smart, because he dodn't even has a clue what smart and clever and intelligent is. He has absolutly no clue. I guess SUCKER PUNCH will be more to his alley, it will play better to his dumb strenghs. and still the movie already looks retard beyond belief merely from the trailers, which are supposed to convince us to watch it. Consider this: it's a movie set in the 1950s about a teen girl who is interned in a mental institute, and in there she has power fantasies where she is a samurai-ninja babe who battels ninjas and giant robots? WHAT GIRL IN THE 1950S WOULD HAD THIS TYPE OF FANTASY DREAMS? Again, Zack The Hack Snyder proves to be a complete ignorant idiot. Snyder he redneck monglid must think that the 50s were like today, only with better fashion. The guy is ignorant and stupid beyond belief! would had it be so hard to have set the fucking movie in today's time? Today, many young teen girls have tastes similiar to the boys, about robotss, ninjas, zombies and werewolves and vampyres and geek stuff like that. In the fifthies? IN THE FIFTIES? Give be a freaking break! You know what really blows my mind? That i can see in mere seconds the wrong and idioticy in this hack's movies and their way of thinking, while this assclowns can't notice ever after spending years writing the fucking script and months making the bloody movies. What the fuck is wrong with this assholes? How can this people be so stupid?
