[WARNING: Potential spoilers ahead!]
Details about Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel remain sparse, even as its release is a little under four months away. We’ve heard that the film will feature a “more realistic” take on the character and that Superman (Henry Cavill) will face off against General Zod (as played by Michael Shannon). However, the hero’s relationship with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) is as vague as it was when Adams was cast.
Of course, the Man of Steel and The Daily Planet’s top reporter tied the knot in the comics (before it was retconned for The New 52), and in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, they conceived a child together. Regardless, Snyder will no doubt make the Superman mythology his own with Man of Steel. Now some new evidence gives us a hint regarding which direction his film is headed.
According to Comic Book, a few props from the Man of Steel set have found their way to online auctions, and while most of the Lois Lane items include fairly unimpressive items like pens, a pad and straws, it also includes one POTENTIAL SPOILER item: a faux diamond wedding ring.
Of course, this begs the question of exactly how Lois’s marital status factors into the plot of Man of Steel. Perhaps Lois is in a relationship with someone other than Clark when the films opens and becomes engaged during its running time. Of course, there’s always the chance that Superman and Lois attempt to take their relationship to the next level by the film’s end. In Returns, Lois was engaged to Perry White’s nephew, Richard, so anything’s possible.
It’s worth noting that Adams has yet to confirm her involvement in a potential Man of Steel sequel. So until Man of Steel hits theaters everywhere this summer, fans can only speculate what the future holds for the Son of Krypton.
