View Full Version : Slim (or no) chance of Lori Lemaris in upcoming superman movie?

Lori Lemaris, superman's college girlfriend, was a girl in a wheelchair who used a blanket over her tail, concealing the fact that she was secretly a telepathic mermaid from Atlantis (which might or might not be the same Atlantis that Aquaman deals with... it's hard to tell).

According to this clip, the producers are talking about making a Superman movie set during his college years, WITHOUT Lois Lane.

That said, the only information I've seen on an upcoming superman movie seems to (according to the IMDB) list Lois Lane among the cast, so this idea might have been scrapped.

Has anyone else heard anything about potential screen time for Lori?

That's not surprising. You ever see the show Smallville? It was an entire show about Superman as a young man, and it ran for 10 years without ever having Lori appear. Superman dating a mermaid is too random and nonsensical for audiences outside comic book circles.
