Character Description for Lois Lane

First the CW announces that this year's Arrowverse crossover would feature Batwoman! That alone is enough for us to loose our minds with excitement. Then The CW ups the ante again and says Superman is returning for the crossover and will be in all three episodes! Just about the only thing left that could shock us is if they introduce Lois Lane, and that is exactly what they did! Casting is currently underway for the part and ThatHashTagShow.com has discovered the character's description and the attributes they are looking for. She is described as:

Daughter of US General Sam Lane, Lois is a tenacious, righteous and stubborn reporter who will go to any length to get the story and almost never fails.

The actor they are looking for is said to be:

Caucasian woman in her early 30s.

The article did go on to reveal that the part is for two of the three episodes appearing in both The Flash (crossover kickoff episode) and Supergirl (crossover finale episode). This would mean Lois will not be seen on night two via Arrow.

We can't wait to see Superman and Lois together and of course how Superman and Lois will interact with The Flash, Arrow and everyone else. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and in the forum! Keep us advertisement free and visit the support page!

So the character description of Lois Lane is tenacious, righteous and stubborn and a white woman in her early 30's. I think there is a word for this type of lady. lol Should be easy to cast.


No; she's tenacious, righteous, stubborn, and Caucasian; the "early 30s" bit describes the age of the actress they're looking for, not the age of the character.

They're looking for an ACTOR in her early 30s; that doesn't mean the CHARACTER is in her early 30s.

When he was cast to play Clark in Season 2, Tyler Hoechlin was just 28 years old, playing a version of Superman who was around 36 years old at the time.

And the discrepancies between actor age and character age continue:
- 29-year-old Melissa Benoist is playing 27-year-old Kara Danvers (and started out, at age 26, playing a 24-year-old Kara)
- 36-year-old Chyler Leigh was originally playing a 26-year-old Alex Danvers (who is now about 29)
- 37-year-old Mehcad Brooks was originally playing a version of James Olsen who was in his late 20s and is now barely into his early 30s
- 34-year-old Jeremy Jordan started out playing a version of Winn Schott who is supposed to be around the same age as Kara (meaning the character was about 24 when Supergirl started)

I think they can still get away with it without retconning. Early 30's minus 3 years would mean she is still older than Lucy was in Season one.

Remember in most versions of the Superman Myths Jimmy Olsen is working in the Daily Planet as a Teenager, there is no reason why Lois can't have started the same way.

Why could Lois not have worked with Cat Grant just because Cat Grant is probably roughly plus or minus 5 years from Calista Flockhart's actual age, placing her in range of late 40's to early 50's? I don't remember Season 1 establishing an actual age difference, only a competitive streak and a lot of Cat jeering at Lois.

I don't recall Clark's age being established in the show when he first appeared as Superman. Only that he was already Superman when Kara landed after 24 years in the Phantom Zone, making Clake 24 to 25 at the time. The pilot in 2015 is 11 years latter making him 35 to 36 and three years latter in the coming 2018 season he should be 38 to 39 years old.

There has been no reference as to when Lois and Clark's relationship started, there is nothing to contradict Lois being 18 or older at the time. Hypothetically if there were lets say 6 years between them making Lois 32 to 33 Years old, If we hazard a guess that Clake first took on the Superman ID when he was 22 (not unreasonable as in Man of steel he is about 33 and Superman the Movie about 30 (19 or 20 + about 10 years in the Fortress of Solitude)) this would put Lois at 16 years old, and with her "tenacious, righteous and stubborn" personality I can imagine her rising through the ranks quite quickly to be 18 at the time Kara lands.

Quoting Marysocontrary1:
Early 30s means she was a teenager when Clark became Superman . . . Daily Planet. Also means she couldn't have worked with Cat Grant . . .

Early 30s means she was a teenager when Clark became Superman, instead of already working at the Daily Planet. Also means she couldn't have worked with Cat Grant. Seems they've forgotten what they already established in season 1 of Supergirl or just decided to completely retcon the character.

Nice to know. Thanks for posting this info here. Lookin' forward to seeing how things pan out story-wise with all of the character additions and the mega-crossover implications.
