If you hang around these here parts, you know we're fans of the character Lois Lane in all her forms, be it comics, television, movies, what-have-you. She's as big of a deal in our world, practically, as Big Blue himself.
Season 2 of the CW hour-long-drama Supergirl saw the arrival of Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, and while I wish his costume had a few tweaks, the man inside is really pretty great as Superman/ Clark Kent. We saw him talking to Lois on the phone, and Season 1 featured Lois Lane's sister, Lucy, as a romantic rival for Jimmy Olsen (this is comics canon in a way, going back to the Silver Age, but it was nowhere near as goofy as anyone showing interest in Jimmy in the comics).
Season 4 of Supergirl started production a while back (and will begin airing in October? Maybe?), and us Superman/ Lois fans were thrilled to hear that the CW was seeking a Lois Lane for their TV multiple TV series.
People - we have our Lois.
Elizabeth "Bitsie" Tulloch will be playing the Daily Planet's resident, right-cross-throwing Bob Woodward.
No, I have absolutely no idea who that is, but this is what she put on social media, and I don't care if it's a bit of well-crafted PR. You kids have no appreciation for how far this is from where we were twenty years ago, maybe even just ten.

So, thanks to this and the fact she sorta looks like a walking drawing of Lois Lane anyway,* Bitsie has my support!
Here's hoping CW is so smitten Lois and Superman get their own show. Which they should. Because I'd watch it. A lot.
*I'm actually all for color-blind casting of Superman and Lois, btw, and would be happy seeing it done in TV or film (or comics) any time
