DVD News

I'm looking at the TV Shows on DVD site tonight and have run across this interesting tidbit.

Smallville Season 5 to have Lois Lane Retrospective:

One specific feature which we've received word on is a "Lois Lane Retrospective". This feature will take a look back at the history of Lois Lane, so that today's generation can see that there has been a long line of women who have played this key role in the Superman mythology.

Special guest appearances for this feature include video interviews with Erica Durance (who plays Lois Lane in "Smallville"), Noel Neill (the original Lois Lane from the Kirk Alyn "Superman" serials and "The Adventures of Superman" TV series from the 1950s), and even Dana Delany (who voiced Lois Lane in "Superman: The Animated Series" of the 1990s).

Just added:

Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in four Superman movies and appeared in the Smallville episodes "Crusade" and "Transference," has also been interviewed for the Smallville Season 4 DVD set.

I'm not a huge fan of the show, but it sounds really interesting to get this kind of look at how Lois has been played. Too bad Terri Hatcher isn't involved, though with Lois & Clark The New Adventures of Superman Season One coming out. Well perhaps we'll see something like that from her down the line.
