Miss Lane by Dawson Joyce; Based on Characters from DC

With the recent success of Joker, there's been rumors — as in, take it with a grain of salt — that it might be the first installment of a new standalone DC film series, a cinematic equivalent to the DC Black Label. So over the past few days, I've had various ideas of what could be done with DC's library of popular and beloved characters to make for compelling films that could capture said characters' essence and nuance even without directly following any kind of source material.

For this one, the basic idea is that this would be a political drama in the vein of journalism films such as Spotlight, The Post, and All the President's Men, but in regards to how Lois Lane would be portrayed, it would be heavily inspired by The Hudsucker Proxy, mainly Jennifer Jason Leigh's character in that film. This would be somewhat of an origin tale, detailing how and why Lane got interested in journalism and showcasing her progression into becoming the feisty and confident award-winning headline-hunter we all know and love from the comics and other adaptations.
