I'm fairly sure that Lois has also been shown in animation as a brunette, though we might have to go back as far as the Superman theatrical shorts (and even then I don't know if it was consistent).

EDIT: And I forgot about Lois in All-Star Superman.

I think Superman Vs the Elite was the most recent to feature a brunette Lois.

But let's not get too much off-topic in regards to hair styles and colors in previous cartoons. :p

Getting back on-topic, what villains do you think the show will use? I imagine they wouldn't make the show without Lex Luthor in it. Him and Brainiac are pretty much confirmed I guess. The focus on romance mentioned in the show's description made me think Maxima might also appear. Could make for a fun recurring character.

Let's please drop the subject about such complains made elsewhere and keep this topic civilized.

I'm kind of wondering if they might have Lex going after Lois too as a rival for Clark...

Of course I was just being ridiculous before. Lilith Clawthorne is the cast member from TOH who is Lois Lane. What? Her VA Cissy Jones voiced Lois in Lego DC Super-Villains. Also a nurse in Man of Tomorrow and Dominator Queen in Legends of Tomorrow.

It'll be interesting to see how Silver Age this show gets :p.
Yep and how much Superman acts like a real di...fferent person.;)

Tom Anschiem talked about My Adventures With Superman in this article. A few things of note:

1. While still an action show, it's also a romantic comedy.

2. Clark, Lois, and Jimmy are all college graduates who are in their early 20s.

Interesting. So Clark, Lois, and Jimmy are around the same age. I picture Jimmy as like five to ten years younger then them but that's just me.

So in other words, this isn’t really Superman at all…or rather, it’s an “Elseworlds” version of Superman.

I know nobody said it, but I can’t see this as being in the same universe as “Batman: Caped Crusader”…

It's not often a Western cartoon is treated as a romcom, compared to how that's more prevalent with anime, but should be fun :).

Basically age-wise it's Man of Tomorrow all over again...maybe a little younger ;).

Technically every adaptation would be an elseworld story.

That kind of reminds me of how Lois and Clark was handled back in the '90s as well. That show was kind of like Moonlighting or something but with less bickering and more superhero shenanigans.

I find it kind of interesting Ascheim mentions the show tested better with girls, I don't recall any other DC animated show starting out like that.
My first thought was when Giancarlo Volpe made that comic about the focus test screening for GL:TAS where boys were into the action and the girls liked all the shipping scenes...thus justifying everything their bosses ever told them :p.

I don't know if it tested better but I remember at least one of the issues with Young Justice was it appealing to an older and more female demographic than what the execs wanted.

That's what much of the internet thinks thanks to Dini's Tower Prep rant, but what little viewership numbers we had implied an 80% male audience. Green Lantern bombing at the box office, higher costs than other shows, and the show not doing much better than anything else on the channel despite internet noise likely all factored in.

After the animated movie announcement, did not at all think a live-action TMNT was still in development.

Thinking about rebranding myself sometime later this year. Like, changing my screen name, new accounts, etc. But I don't think my haters would trust me if I did. Would those people build confidence if I considered doing it? Like, I WAS gonna do it soon, but I probably need to hold off for a long while.
I like how there's drama on twitter almost every single day. Feels like people only use that site to complain, get offended and get into arguments nowadays.
