Seriously its been a focal point of 5 movies, an entire TV series, the last four seasons of Smallville and a large portion of an animated series. Superman's entire life doesn't revolve around Lois so why does it have to be a plot point in everything he's involved in outside of comics?
To me, it seems Lois is more like Superman's voice in this film, she'll interview him, figure out where he came from, and will probably coin the phrase "Superman". Maybe she'll be like Pepper in the first Iron Man film, they'll have a flirtation, but nothing too heavy.
@k4tzm4n: I'm not jumping to conclusions, I've just noticed that many of the bad reviews have been complaining about the lack of focus on this relationship and my point is it doesn't need to be addressed in depth in this movie.
@beautifultemptress: I know, my post came from the large amount of critics complaining about the movie not focusing on it as much as the Donner movies, tho they seem to be pissed in general that this wasn't a carbon copy of the Donner movies so its possibly a side effect of that.
Yes, I'm sure we'd all love to see Man Of Steel without the intensity of Michael Shannon, the themes of new ideas vs antiquated social roles, and the immense depth of the new Superman, no, we want to see Lois and Superman make out more. Yeah, yeah, sure
I don't care about Superman and Lois's relationship. Why do fictional-characters need to have relationships (girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, husbands and all that nonsense)? I go to see a movie about Superman to see Superman's story and Superman in some action-scenes, not to see some relationship.
