Elizabeth Tulloch Cast As Lois Lane

Its a question fans have been wondering about since the crossover featuring Superman and Lois Lane was announced, who will play the incredible Lois Lane? Today we have our answer! Elizabeth Tulloch, famous for her roles on NBC's Grimm, Parkland and The Artist, has been cast as the intrepid reporter! Tulloch will be featured on the opening episode of the crossover, The Flash as well as the ending episode of the crossover Supergirl (note both shows have swapped places for this one time event). Tulloch brings a rich plethora of acting credits as well as an impressive academic career. She attended Harvard University and graduated magna cum laude with a double major in literature and fine arts. Lois 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.

In addition to the great news, Elizabeth herself took to social media to share her overwhelming excitement for the part! Here's what she had to say about becoming Lois Lane:

Excuse me while I fangirl for a moment: I am so excited (thank you Warner Brothers, the CW, DC Comics, @gberlanti, @davidrapaport, Jessica Queller et al) to be playing the iconic Lois Lane on the Arrowverse crossover episodes. And I can’t wait to work with my friend @dpanabaker and of course @tylerhoechlin

When I started acting, one of my teachers asked me to watch the screen tests for the role of Lois Lane for 1978’s Superman. All of the actresses were terrific, but it was always clear to me why Margot Kidder won the role: she seemed lit from within, full of joie de vivre. Now, at a time when the noble profession of journalism feels under siege, it’s a privilege to join the club of actresses who have played the dogged reporter.

As far back as 1938 when she first appeared in Action Comics #1, Lois Lane has defied and subverted society’s expectations of how women should behave. She was portrayed as opinionated, inquisitive, and an unapologetically badass career woman at a time when many representations of women leaned more towards meek and demure.

One of the reasons the character has remained so compelling for the last 80 years is that she has all these formidable, strong-willed qualities, but she’s also vulnerable, romantic, and feminine. A truly modern woman.
