Margot Kidder Would Be Willing To Appear On A DCTV Show; Not A Fan Of Amy Adams’ Lois Lane

lois lane kidder dctv

Margot Kidder, the woman who played the iconic Lois Lane in Superman: The Movie and subsequent sequels, last worked with DC for a Smallville appearance in 2004. Fast forward 12 years later, Kidder says she would still be willing to appear on the new age of DC TV shows as well. She already has an established professional relationship with producer Greg Berlanti, appearing on Berlanti’s show Brothers and Sisters.

Kidder spoke with the website Hey U Guys, primarily about her experience while on the set of the Superman films. During the interview, she was asked if she would ever consider doing one of the new DC TV shows (most likely Supergirl), to which she replied that she would, and that she is past her acting prime and no longer has a career that she needs to protect. In other words, she can take a role just because it looks like fun without having to worry about it harming her reputation. Check out her full response:

“Yeah, sure. Depending on the script or what they wanted me to do. I am 67, I am an old broad now! So I look back at this with much more amusement than I did. I don’t have a career I need to worry about protecting. My life has nothing to do with movies anymore. I live in a little town in Montana and basically do political activism. So I guess it would be fun to fly-in and do a couple of days work.”

Supergirl seems like the most likely place to have a past Lois Lane appear, but anything is possible at this point. The only possible hitch in Kidder briefly rejoining the DC multiverse comes not from the shows, but from the movie universe. According to Kidder, Amy Adams’ version of Lois Lane does the character a disservice by not giving her anything to do. See the full response below:

“They took one of the best American actresses around, Amy Adams, and didn’t give her anything to do! I mean, how stupid is that? They made her what used to be the girlfriend, which kind of ended in the ’60s with women’s rights.”

While she didn’t blame Amy Adams at all, but actually complimented her in the process, she did say that the movie’s version of the character needs to be a more modern woman and given more to do. Hopefully this alone won’t stop her from making a return to the DC TV universe one day. Fun fact: Margot’s niece, Janet Kidder, played Ruve Adams (Darhk) during Arrow‘s fourth season. It really is a small multiverse, isn’t it?

Do you want to see Margot Kidder in the DC TV universe, and do you agree with her assessment of Amy Adams’ Lois Lane? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

  • Christian

    Amy Adams’ Lois is crucial to the plot of both Man of Steel and Batman V Superman, and her Lois could actually figure out that Clark Kent and Superman are one in the same. I don’t really see where Kidder is coming from.

    • Calum Sanderson

      I liked that she was introduced to him AS Superman first, as the alien Kal-El, and THEN they kind of create the Clark Kent alter ego, she hooks him up with a job at the daily planet, and then having her say “welcome to the planet” is a great way to end Man of Steel. I disagree with Kidder that Lois doesn’t have much to do, but to each their own. I still love both of their Loises!

      • Christian

        Definitely agree! I love both versions of Lois, but the Amy Adams Lois certainly seems like the more capable of the two haha

    • Rob

      Yes, Lois was crucial in the plot because she wasn’t a character, she was a plot devise. They came up with ridiculous ways to insert her in the plot only and he only job was to move the plot along.

      For example, there was no reason for her to be on Zod’s ship other than to activate Hologram Jor-El to allow Clark to escape. Why did Zod want her to come along and lock her in a room with a computer interface that she could activate Jor-El and forget about her?

      • Christian

        Well the Kryptonians weren’t aware that she had Superman’s command key so they would have no reason to think she could be a threat to them in there. Other than that, which isn’t a ridiculous thing for her to be doing, what other actions of hers do you have a problem with?

        • Rob

          I don’t have problems with her actions other than her climbing an ice wall in the middle of the Arctic at night in sub zero temperatures with no equipment. I have problems with the way they came up with so many contrivances to shoehorn her into scenes and use her more of a plot devise than a character.

  • SAMURAI36

    Yeah, I’m not sure what film Kidder watched, but the DCEU’s Lois was far more useful than Kidder’s Lois ever was.

    • Axxell

      Yeah…Who else was gonna throw that spear into the water and then get stuck trying to get it back…

      • Darthmanwe

        Much better than needlessly dying and forcing Clark to turn back frigging time.

        • Thanostic

          100% agree. That was probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen in a superhero movie. Granted, they didn’t really know how to make them back then, but still…..

        • Axxell

          If I’m ever forced to turn back time, I’d rather it not be while I’m busy trying to fight a freaking monster for the survival of planet earth…

          • Darthmanwe

            And you’ll probably see exactly that happen when Flash is sent back in time to warn bruce.

          • Axxell

            Yes… That Lois Lane, being the superhero chore she is, will once again need saving, except there will be a time when Superman can’t save her… So naturally she’ll die, and Superman will be PI$$ED at not having a girlfriend that can save herself.

            And that will be the extent of her contribution to the DCEU.

        • Rob

          I have to agree that the ending of Superman was stupid. But we are talking about the 70s. Movies were different back then. There was a different sensibility and naivety.

          And the original Superman movie was not the greatest movie to begin with.

      • Peter James

        At least this Lois Lane wasn’t so stupid that she can’t tell the difference between when someone puts on glasses and when they don’t (and slick their hair back).

        • Axxell

          Stupid and useful is better than smart and worthless.

  • Paris

    Loved her in the old Superman movies, but I don’t know what she’s talking about. Lois is a much stronger and smarter character in the new movies. There were even fans who complained she did do a lot in Man Of Steel.

  • monkeypants2230

    She is right. Amy’s Lois is the damsel in distress who frankly was forced into too many scenes and side plots that added nothing much other than Superman would drop and ignore everything for her…even his own mother. Plus Adams is lacking chemistry with Cavill.

    • SAMURAI36

      What movie did you watch?

      • Axxell

        Same one the rest of us watch.

    • Rob

      I don’t know if she was only the damsel in distress, but I totally agree that she was just forced into almost every scene she was in. There was no logic reason why she would be following Clark up an ice wall at night in subzero temperatures or why Zod wanted her to go with Clark on his ship or why she was on the bomber.

      I saw her more as a plot device.

    • Christian

      Okay they’ve got plenty of chemistry so I don’t know where that came from, but when did he ignore his mom for Lois?

  • Cinephilia Lovegood

    Yeah, Amy Adams’ Lois Lane is a “modern woman” about 75% of the time while the rest is spent screaming and in danger…Margot Kidder is about as close to legally retarded as one could possibly be without being made fun of, so I’ll leave it at that.

    • Axxell

      It’s funny how all it takes is for someone to have a disagreement with the creative decisions at DC for all the fanboys to show their fangs..

      • Cinephilia Lovegood

        Now that I read this back I can see that it sounds like a negative for Amy Adams, but I honestly had no intention of that. I quoted modern women because I thought Kidder’s use of it was retarded and the 75% thing was meant to be a compliment because normally Lois is completely helpless…it was not meant to be a critique. I love Amy Adams’ version.

        • Axxell

          I don’t see why fans have to attack and insult someone for entertaining the thought that DC movies could afford to be better…I know you’re sore at all the criticism that DCCU films have received so far, but Kidder’s point is pretty tame in comparison to other’s opinion of the movies. And she’s right – Adams’ Lane never seems to be able to do stuff on her own without some kind of assistance from either Superman or someone else.

  • Rob

    Lois Lane was easily one of the worst parts of Man of Steel and BvS. In Man of Steel, they came up with ridiculous reasons to inject her into the movie.

    One minute Lois is being told if she goes outside at night, she will freeze to death going to the outhouse. The next she is chasing after Clark at night climbing ice walls.

    One minute the government is trying to arrest her for hiding Superman’s identity. The next they have her doing the interrogation of him?

    Zod for some reason wanted her to accompany Clark to Zod’s ship only to lock her in a room, forget about her, and allow her to help Clark escape with the help of Computer Jor-El.

    Why was she on the airplane delivering Clark’s ship to Zod’s ship? There was no logical reason for her to be there.

    Lois was nothing more than a plot devise in both movies. She was used to get to point A to point B.

    • Christian

      Just watched MoS last night so I’m gonn try to counter some of these:

      1) He said temps can get down to -40, doesn’t mean they will. She’s all about investigating and doesn’t really care about her own safety so she follows Clark.

      2) The government did arrest her, but when Superman revealed himself he said he knew they had her and that he wanted to see her.

      3) I think he wanted Lois so he could get whatever info she had of Superman from her. They didn’t know she had Superman’s command key so locking her in the room with that Kryptonian USB port wouldn’t have mattered to them.

      4) She was on the plane with Clark’a ship because the Jor-El AI explained to her, and no one else, how to use the ship to defeat the Kryptonians.

      • Rob

        1.) It was in the middle of the barren wastelands of Arctic. It might get down to -40 every night, but the temperatures don’t swing so much that she could be scaling ice walls at night. It might have been a “balmy” -20. There is no logical explanation why she didn’t freeze to death.

        2.) I don’t remember that. but even so, odds are they still would have never put her in a room alone with him.

        3.) Lame. She was on the ship because they needed her for the plot. Who else was going to activate Hologram Jor-El to help them escape. No matter what convoluted explanation anyone would have for he to be there, there really was no need for her to be there. All Zod wanted was the Codex and Lois had no information on that or they would have interrogated her first.

        4.) Except Jor-El never explained to her how to use the ship to defeat Zod. They came up with that idea after Clark and Lois escaped the ship. I thought Dr. Emil was the one who came up with that idea.

        And her only knowledge of the process and the only thing needed to be done was put the key in the hole and let the ship do the rest. It wasn’t exactly rocket science. She was there to put her in danger so Superman could rescue her.

        In both movies, she served no purpose other than as a plot tool to drive the plot along.

        • Christian

          When a super powered being who holds that fate of your world in has hands demands to see a woman you have in custody, then you let him talk to her haha.

          She could have had information about the Codex as far as Zod was concerned.

          He didn’t explain it to her on screen, but we do see Jor-El tell Lois that he’s going to tell her how to defeat them. When she and Superman get back on the ground she says that she knows how to stop the ship.

          • Rob

            Yeah, but Clark already turned himself in to be turned over to Zod. He fulfilled what he needed.

            It is a real stretch to think she would have had any information on the Codex. And why wasn’t someone interrogating her if they thought she did?

            Ok, I may be wrong about the plan part, but she had absolutely no purpose on the ship and was just an observer until the very end and Foura attacked the ship and Dr. Hamilton was killed and that was just turning the key a bit.

          • Christian

            Yeah he turned himself in, but he still wanted to see Lois and as far as they know if they told him no he could just leave, or destroy the place.

            She was interrogated. She said they looked in her mind like they did with Clark so I’m guessing they got similar information about Clark’s family from her.

          • Rob

            But the government had him in handcuffs at the start of the scene. If they thought that he would just destroy the place or leave if they didn’t let him talk to Lois, why would they handcuff him. They had no idea he could easily break out of them like he did. So they didn’t think he could easily leave or destroy the place either.

            In fact, they had no idea of his powers at that point. I don’t even know if they believed he had any powers at that point and was just like us.

          • Christian

            Well he was flying when they first saw him haha so they knew he had powers over and above a normal human. I will concede that they hadn’t seen him display any other powers so they wouldn’t have known the full extent of his ability.

          • Rob

            I forgot he flew in, but they clearly didn’t know he had super strength or any other powers.

          • Peter James

            >>>>”I forgot he flew in….,”

            This is shocking.
            Coming from you.
            I’m stunned.
            “forgot”!!!!!???!?
            Stunned!!
            Gobsmacked!!!

            /s

            >>>”….but they clearly didn’t know he had super strength or any other powers.”

            …..because, clearly in that universe no one has LOGIC and can deduce that a person who can defy the law of gravity might also have other superhuman ability or strength.

            Clearly.

          • Rob

            Sorry that I forgot one insignificant scene from a movie released about 5 years ago.

            And yes, they figured Superman had super powers to destroy the entire facility and though that handcuffs would be able to prevent him. LOL!

          • Peter James

            As I’ve already stated and as was made clear to anyone paying attention and with more cerebral wattage than room temperature IQ (which clearly doesn’t include you), the handcuffs weren’t to prevent him from doing anything.

            They were symbolic for the purpose of showing them that they could trust him and for their reassurance.

            I was going to give the comparison to David, the android’s character in Prometheus’ when he responded why he was bothering to wear a helmet at all if he didn’t breathe and didn’t need one, and then I remembered I was going to be wasting a perfectly good analogy and explanation on someone with the IQ of a brain-damaged dung beetle strung out on LSD.

            Next time stick to “complicated” narrative works that are more up to your speed…..

            Like Sesame Street.

            Just don’t let all the letters trip you up.

          • Axxell

            In your attempt to sound condescending you’ve managed to look foolish to anyone following the plot.

            He wasn’t asking why Superman allowed himself to be handcuffed; he was asking why would the authorities handcuff him if they thought he was strong enough to break them…it was obvious they didn’t know his strength, otherwise they’d have known how pointless it was to cuff him. Therefore there was no reason why they’d acquiescence to his demand to have Lois there.

            Funny that your low IQ didn’t let you see that…

          • SAMURAI36

            You’ve forgotten SEVERAL key points to the film. You are getting more and more ridiculous with each new response. Just give it up, dude.

          • Peter James

            >>>” If they thought that he would just destroy the place or leave if they
            didn’t let him talk to Lois, why would they handcuff him.”

            Once again, not bothering paying attention.

            The surrender, along with agreeing to wear the cuffs was for the benefit of the humans – i.e. Superman did it to re-assure them that he was no threat to them even though they both knew that the cuffs were useless on him.
            He pretty much intimated as much during his conversation with Lois when she asked why he let himself be arrested.
            Do you even bother paying attention AT ALL during any movie?

            What’s wrong with you people?

          • Peter James

            >>>>”In fact, they had no idea of his powers at that point. I don’t even know if they believed he had any powers at that point and was just like us.”

            You mean after they first met him for the first time as he was HOVERING and flying about 50 feet above them?

            Why would they ever assume that someone who could do that would have any other powers?

            Not paying attention,….
            …as usual.

          • Rob

            Sorry, when the movie is mediocre like Man of Steel was, I forget the details. I don’t remember everything about every scene in a movie I really didn’t care for.

          • Peter James

            It’s not the movie that’s mediocre.

            It’s the person criticizing it and his so-called “attention span” and laughable logical faculties.
            As you’ve aptly demonstrated in this thread, where remembering basic things like Superman hovering above the army seems to be quite the challenge for you.

            Case in point :-

            If you didn’t care for the movie, then why did you go watch it in the first place?

            More to the point, why are you still talking about it and grousing over it?
            You don’t even hear yourself when you contradict yourself and generally make an fooI out of yourself.

          • Rob

            Why did I watch in the first place? Because the trailers were awesome. I was hoping for a good movie. Christopher Nolan was involved.

            You DC fanboys are so sensitive. I get one minor scene wrong about a movie that came out a half decade ago and you go ballistic.

          • SAMURAI36

            You’re getting destroyed here from all sides, and still you refuse to give up.

            It’s clear that you didn’t even watch the movie.

        • Peter James

          “2.) I don’t remember that.”

          That one sentence essentially sums you up and pretty much all you people who whine about Man of Steel.

          You either don’t remember pertinent parts of the movie, or more likely you simply weren’t paying attention.

          It’s as the guy pointed out to you, Superman surrendered himself and then said he would talk to no one but Lois.
          The Government wanting to get any information from him (and figuring he wasn’t a threat to Lois if he specifically requested for her……and also, oh I don’t know, he hadn’t hurt anyone else when he so easily could have if he wanted to) granted this request knowing that they could also use the opportunity to get more information from and about him through the one-way mirror (not knowing that he had X-ray vision.).

          The rest of your questions or “issues” are equally nonsensical and easily answered by anyone who was paying attention and doesn’t need to have the story spoon-fed to them like a toddler, so I won’t even bother rebutting them since he did a good job of it anyway.

          • Rob

            LOL! Yes, my not paying attention is the reason why one minute Lois is asked not to go outside at night or die from exposure and then climbing 30 foot ice walls at night with minimal protective gear and no equipment five minutes later.

            And no one ever significantly explained why Zod wanted her on the ship other than to activate Jor-El and move the plot along. There was never a reason given.

            C’mon everyone knew that WB rushed the production of Man of Steel into production because of a rights issue. The script had major holes in it and one was how they forced Lois into scenes without logic.

          • Peter James

            Why should I dignify this with a response when it was already explained to you in the comment above why this complaint is nonsensical and stupid (just like YOU) and you clearly couldn’t even be bothered to pay attention to that?

            And stop using the word “logic”.

            You wouldn’t know what it means if it crawled up your backside and slapped you in that empty space where a brain is supposed to reside.

            Laughable doesn’t even begin to describe you.

          • Rob

            You are right, I shouldn’t use the word logic when talking about a Zack Snyder movie. it doesn’t exist.

            And of course, you won’t respond because you know the “logic” in those scenes is signature David Goyer – Complete and utter crap.

            It is funny that you DC fanboys cannot have single discussion about a DC film without throwing around insults and dragging the argument downs to just rock throwing.

          • Christian

            DC fanboy here who did no name calling or argument dragging

        • SAMURAI36

          1.) It was in the middle of the barren wastelands of Arctic. It might get down to -40 every night, but the temperatures don’t swing so much that she could be scaling ice walls at night. It might have been a “balmy” -20. There is no logical explanation why she didn’t freeze to death.

          Did you actually see her “climbing ice walls” in the film? We didn’t even see Clark doing that.

          2.) I don’t remember that. but even so, odds are they still would have never put her in a room alone with him.

          You realize that your not remembering, negates your entire argument, right?

          3.) Lame. She was on the ship because they needed her for the plot. Who else was going to activate Hologram Jor-El to help them escape.

          Superman could’ve easily done it. He didn’t need her to use the key.

          No matter what convoluted explanation anyone would have for he to be there, there really was no need for her to be there. All Zod wanted was the Codex and Lois had no information on that or they would have interrogated her first.

          So in other words, you’re doubling down on your ignorance? Perhaps you should go watch the movie again.

          Besides, Given that Zod didn’t know what Lois knew, but that she clearly knew something (same as what the gov’t thought), it was in his best interest to interrogate her, in case Clark didn’t give up anything.

          4.) Except Jor-El never explained to her how to use the ship to defeat Zod. They came up with that idea after Clark and Lois escaped the ship. I thought Dr. Emil was the one who came up with that idea.

          There was a brief convo in between scenes that happened on the ship, as Jor-El was helping her escape. GO WATCH THE MOVIE AGAIN.

          In both movies, she served no purpose other than as a plot tool to drive the plot along.

          You keep saying that, as a means to reinforce your point, without offering any proof. You need to watch the movie again.

          I bet you’re one of those that believe Superman destroyed the whole city too, right?

          • Axxell

            Did you actually see her “climbing ice walls” in the film? We didn’t even see Clark doing that.

            You think she “magically” appeared on those ice walls?
            https://youtu.be/jC9pJlJfSPY?t=78

            You realize that your not remembering, negates your entire argument, right?

            It doesn’t…because his argument was never about MoS being a memorable movie.

            Superman could’ve easily done it. He didn’t need her to use the key.

            So why didn’t he? LOL!

            So in other words, you’re doubling down on your ignorance? Perhaps you should go watch the movie again.

            So in lieu of any factual and logical retort to Lois Lane’s illogical presence, you just hunker down in denial…THAT is the definition of ignorance.

            Given that Zod didn’t know what Lois knew, but that she clearly knew something same as what the gov’t thought, it was in his best interest to interrogate her, in case Clark didn’t give up anything.

            As usual, I don’t expect you to provide any factual evidence, this time of there ever being any indication for Zod to believe Lois “clearly” knew anything about the Codex that he didn’t already know, or that the military general didn’t know better about…and as Rob mentioned, even if for some unexplained reason they thought she had something…they still didn’t interrogate her.

            Face it, she’s just a plot device.

          • Rob

            BTW, this clip also has the part where Christopher Meloni tells Lois that it gets to be -40 below at night and that they wouldn’t find her body until spring if she wanders off. So it clearly shows there is no way she should have been able to follow Clark at night.

          • SAMURAI36

            There’s no reason for Lois to believe the same military that was giving her the run-around when she first met them. As far as she was concerned, they would tell her anything to keep from pursuing a story. Which was established at the very beginning of that scene.

          • Rob

            LOL! You give me crap about not knowing the details about the movie and you forget scenes where she clearly had climbed the ice wall to get to the cave where the ship is in subzero temperatures at night with nothing more than a parka, hats, and gloves for protection.

            Me not remember one detail for one of my points does not negate my entire argument. But then again, if you are right, your entire argument is also completely negated because you forgot the scene where Lois clearly climbed an ice wall. But unlike you, I will admit to my mistakes.

            Even if Superman could have easily activated Jor-El did doesn’t change my argument that she was only on Zod’s ship as a convenient plot device to activate Jor-El. There was no scenes on the ship between her or Zod, And even if it was in Zod’s best interest to interrogate her, he never seemed to intend to do it.

            And no I don’t believe that Superman destroyed the city, but I do think he had a reckless disregard for human life. For example, when Zod threw one of Lex Luther’s gas trucks at Superman, Superman jumped over it and let it crash into a building and explode rather than trying to stop it and protect human lives that may have been in that building.

            LOL! You give me crap about not knowing the details about the movie and you forget scenes where she clearly had climbed the ice wall to get to the cave where the ship is in subzero temperatures at night with nothing more than a parka, hats, and gloves for protection.

            Me not remember one detail for one of my points does not negate my entire argument. But then again, if you are right, your entire argument is also completely negated because you forgot the scene where Lois clearly climbed an ice wall. But unlike you, I will admit to my mistakes.

            You actually forgot more than just one point. If it was just one, then it could be excusable, but you’re building a polemic around several faulty points, that I and others have pointed out, and then you’re getting butthurt about it.

            Maybe you should just watch the movie again.

            As for the climbing the wall, it’s all of ONE SECOND in the film, so it’s easy to miss. But so what? You act like that’s some MAJOR plothole.

            Here’s a question for you…. When StarLord and the green ho’ were flying in space without any sort of protection in that kissing scene for NEARLY TWO MINUTES in GOTG, was that a problem for you?

            I’m asking for a reason, which will become clear later in my post.

            Even if Superman could have easily activated Jor-El did doesn’t change my argument that she was only on Zod’s ship as a convenient plot device to activate Jor-El. There was no scenes on the ship between her or Zod, And even if it was in Zod’s best interest to interrogate her, he never seemed to intend to do it.

            Wow, you’re sooo wrong.

            In the above clip, not only does Lois inform Clark that Zod’s people used telepathy to interrogate her (same as they used on him), but we also clearly see Jor-El telling Lois to “remember about the Phantom Drives”. So clearly, you don’t tell people to remember something that you never told them.

            And with this, you’ve been totally neutralized. You don’t even seem to have a clue what’s going on in the movie that you are vilifying. You’re more worried about whether Lois can climb the North pole with gloves on, rather than what’s actually happening in the film.

            WATCH THE MOVIE AGAIN. This time, without the bias that you clearly went into with the first time.

            And no I don’t believe that Superman destroyed the city, but I do think he had a reckless disregard for human life. For example, when Zod threw one of Lex Luther’s gas trucks at Superman, Superman jumped over it and let it crash into a building and explode rather than trying to stop it and protect human lives that may have been in that building.

            LOL, it’s these silly nitpick moments that you DC haters come up with, that gets on my nerves the most. Yet, none of you can ever seem to come up those very same moments for any of the Marvel movies, which are bullet-riddled with them. Hence, my reason for asking about Garbage of the Galaxy.

            BTW, you weren’t paying attention because in the scene where Lois follows Clark to the ship. She takes pictures of the ice wall and then she zooms in and sees Clark entering the cave.

        LOL, you covered most of what I said, before I got a chance to read what you wrote. Good job.

      Lois Lane was easily one of the worst parts of Man of Steel and BvS. In Man of Steel, they came up with ridiculous reasons to inject her into the movie.

      One minute Lois is being told if she goes outside at night, she will freeze to death going to the outhouse. The next she is chasing after Clark at night climbing ice walls.

      Looks like someone didn’t pay attention to what was going on in the movie.

      When she arrived on the site, the military and scientists were already giving her the run-around. As an investigative reporter, they were blocking her from doing her job. From her position, Clark (whom she didn’t know at the time was an alien) walking around made it seem like they were telling here anything to stay in her room.

      One minute the government is trying to arrest her for hiding Superman’s identity. The next they have her doing the interrogation of him?

      Because she was the first person who made contact with him. Of course they would have utilized her to get info from him.

      And the gov’t arrested her, because she made first contact with him. And at that point, she was a national security threat, given that she claimed in her article to have boarded the alien ship.

      Zod for some reason wanted her to accompany Clark to Zod’s ship only to lock her in a room, forget about her, and allow her to help Clark escape with the help of Computer Jor-El.

      They specifically stated in the film that they mentally “interrogated” Lois, the same way they did Superman.

      Why was she on the airplane delivering Clark’s ship to Zod’s ship? There was no logical reason for her to be there.

      Lois was nothing more than a plot devise in both movies. She was used to get to point A to point B.

      She had access to the info about the rocket that no one else had.

    The only “good” Lois Lane I saw recently was American Alien’s version. Kudos to Landis.

    And she never has been a… well, well-rounded character. They found her groove in the days before and after Death of Superman era, but that’s about it really.

    The Rebirth version(s), both of them are currently enjoyable, one as a mama bear and the other as the superwoman persona.

    Movie Lois Lane’s?…. Yeeeeaaa, they’ve yet to play her okay. So far, only Man of Steel version came close.

      I agree with everything that you’ve said here.
