Can you believe it's been 29 years since Lois & Clark first aired?! (29 years, 6 months, 11 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Lois & Clark end?
When Lois & Clark came to an end after 4 years in June 1997, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Clark Kent (Dean Cain), Lex Luthor (John Shea) and Lois Lane (Teri Hatcher). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Lois & Clark reunion disappoint people?
Lois & Clark aired from 1993-1997 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Cain said he's not sure if Lois & Clark would work today. “I don't want to see old Clark Kent,” he told a journalist (Cain turned 56 in July). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a Lois & Clark movie?
In a recent interview, John Shea said he can't imagine a Lois & Clark reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Teri Hatcher has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Lois & Clark movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Lois & Clark film, Dean Cain stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Lois & Clark reboot?
Recasting Lois & Clark for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Lois & Clark reunion, a Lois & Clark movie, or a Lois & Clark reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
