Lana Lang Cast on New Lois & Clark Series

08 Apr 2020 04:58 #67468 by lfan
Emmanuelle Chriqui (from HBO's Entourage fame) has been cast as Lana Lang in the CW's new Lois and Clark series.  Now we sit and wait till they do the "Lara acquires Superman's powers" episode! :P

That would be an interesting turn of events! I could see her getting right in Lois's face over Clark with her newly acquired powers. It would make a hell of a triangle between them!

E.T.A. Emmanuelle is gorgeous!

I think in this version, Lana is actually married.

Yup, totally agree :) 

I remember first seeing her as Bambi from Women in Trouble and Electra Luxx (which also starred  Adrianne Palicki and Carla Gugino.  Great films imo, Shame he never finished the trilogy) :)

As much as I know it won't happen, I'm with you on wishing for a "empowered" episode :P

Peace.

SPOILER from the trailers...



Based on watching the trailers/Previews for Lois & Clark, I see an incredible lost opportunity. Lois and Clark have two teenaged sons who are in various stages of manifesting their father's Kryptonian powers.

Sigh...

- They could have cast a son and a daughter.
or
- Two daughters.  
or
- Identical twin daughters. 
or... I digress.

Anyway, it's a huge missed opportunity for many of us.

apparently that had been the original plan ie a son and a daughter, but somewhere along the line during development they decided on twin sons. my guess is that they didn't want to do too much overlap with Supergirl, especially since the pilot(and most of the first season) had been filmed before the announcement had been made re Supergirl's cancelation. still, I agree. definitely a missed opportunity

The son and daughter combo is a missed opportunity.

I guess I am just getting tired of the forced teenage angst. Clark reveals that he is Superman and the emo son is all screaming "You lied to us! You lied to us!" Well, duh. Any sane person wanting to protect their family and wanting their kids to have a reasonably normal childhood is probably going to try and hide the fact they are the most powerful superhero in the world.

How many kids in middle school are going to successfully keep that secret? Or look at how messed up some kids get when their parents are rich and famous celebrities? I just felt like I have seen this scene a thousand times before. Would be nice if there something new, something different.

given my own experience in the mental health field(both as a patient and an outreach worker), I find that I can forgive Jordan's reaction. the opening montage established him as having an anxiety disorder that he's being medicated for(benzos at that), so how he reacted is understandable. rational thought goes out the window when you're dealing with that sort of thing, which they realistically portrayed. nothing forced about it, given that it's something teenagers deal with in the real world. it's not surprising that the show's writers were able to convey that, given that they're part of the same group that helped net Katie Cassidy win a PRISM Award(an award given to filmmakers and actors who portray the struggle with addiction and mental health in such a way that goes above and beyond the norm) for her story arc in Arrow's second season(the depiction of Laurel Lance's battle with alcoholism and depression).
