How do you follow-up a romance with a street-wise championship boxer Mark Wahlberg? If you’re Amy Adams, you join the cast of Zack Snyder‘s upcoming reboot of Superman as Lois lane and leap into the arms of Brit actor Henry Cavill.
You can’t really blame her, although Supes did get his ass kicked by Muhammad Ali once.
There are dozens of reasons a girl would rather upgrade from Coach to First-class on Air Krypton. Among the highlights:
- No overbearing mother-in-law or drug addicted brother to contend with.
- You don’t have to worry about him complaining about your bad cooking (Unless you use you-know-what as seasoning!)
- He loves animals, (He’s owned a super-dog and horse!) which chicks go goofy for.
- He can see right into your heart – literally!
Personally, I’m not sure Adams can channel Lois’ spunky stick-to-itiveness and sexy attitude. Of course she was hot as stolen nuclear material when she played a night nurse with braces in Catch Me If You Can, so who knows?
She’ll be joined by Diane lane as Martha Kent and Kevin Costner as Johnathan Kent, which actually give me more reason for concern than anything else. Costner is a superb actor – sometimes. I just hope director Snyder utilizes him directly and we wind up with the Bull Durham Costner and not the train wreck we got in The Postman.
This latest Lohan Bulletin comes to you courtesy of The Hook’s good buddy Ryan at All Things Geek.
If she has her way, Lindsay Lohan will bring down the Man of Steel single-handedly, (the other hand will be holding a drink, most likely.) TMZ reports that Lindsay’s “people” have had “multiple phone conversations within the last few weeks with the people behind the new Superman reboot” for Lohan to play a “major character” that wouldn’t be Lois Lane.

“Multiple phone conversations”?
The Hook has had multiple phone conversations with director Zack Snyder‘s people as well. Okay, it was his receptionist, then security and legal representatives, but it’s the same thing!
This story exists to distract people from Lindsay’s growing legal problems.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Keith L. Schwartz today issued a stern warning to Lohan that if she messes up again, she’s headed straight back to jail.
“If you violate the law, I will remand you and set no bail and your attorney won’t be successful this time,” Schwartz said. “You’re no different than anyone else, so please don’t push your luck.”
She returns to court on Feb. 23, when, Schwartz said, if possible, they will try to settle the case. Prosecutors allege that Lohan stole a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store in Venice.
I love you Lois, but our movie sucks! Image via Wikipedia
Like a phoenix from the cinematic ashes, the Big Red ‘S’ is back.
Resurrected by a mixture of studio executive greed and the undying love of fandom, a new Superman film has been targeted for a December 2012 release by Warner Bros.
The poor reaction to Superman Returns by..everyone, appears to have been kryptonite for Brandon Routh who will not be returning to the role. Routh’s performance, while capable, was a mirror image of the late Christopher Reeve and maybe that was part of the problem.
No one will ever be able to touch the heroic performances Reeve gave us, or the impression they left on modern superhero cinema.
Brit actor Henry Cavill, relatively unknown save for his performance in Showtime’s period-piece The Tudors, will be starring in the title role and “300” director Zack Snyder will be bringing his unique style to the table. Hopefully they cut down on the slow motion flying sequences and concentrate on hammering out a solid script worthy of the character’s history.
What’s really interesting is the fact that Batman has no idea who this new superhero on the block even is! When told of the casting news by a reporter backstage during last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, Christian Bale replied, ”Well done for whoever you mentioned.”

And if anyone has an issue with a Brit portraying an American icon, just remember, two Canadian boys created the Man of Steel in the first place!
