Happy Birthday to Margot Kidder!
She is, of course, one of the greats of Superman media as Lois Lane in four Superman films and with a brief stint on Smallville. Arguably, Kidder did quite a bit to pivot the popular conception of Lois as less a straight-laced member of the newsroom (something she never was in the comics, but that's how she was played on TV's Adventures of Superman) and into the gutsy risk-taker with no time for a Dictionary that made absolute sense as the kind of woman who would capture the heart of the Man of Steel.
And, she's absolute dynamite in those first two Superman movies. The interview scene is pretty incredible if you haven't seen it in a while.
Happy Birthday, Ms. Kidder!

This is the most excited I've been for a Marvel movie (beforehand) since Guardians of the Galaxy. Everything about this surpasses what were my biggest hopes for a Black Panther movie.
