Superman - More Goofy Time Stuff
As established in the director's cut and various other versions, the little girl on the train who sees the high-school aged Clark Kent running alongside is Lois Lane. So she's about 10 and Clark is about 16 - they're at least six years different in age (and probably more - I'm being generous here). Yet, later, Lois is already working at the Daily Planet and established herself as a famous reporter, despite being six years younger then Clark. Even with helping his mother and all, with super powers and everything shouldn't he have gone off to college and become a reporter and everything about the same time Lois did?
Plus, Lois and Clark look to be about the same age as adults.
In real life, by the way, Margot Kidder is actually four years older than Christopher Reeve. So how'd Lois go from being 6+ years younger than Clark Kent, to the same age as adults, to in real-life being four years older?

Actually, as established by Marlon Brando's narrataion in the scene where young Clark first steps into his fortress of solitude, he spends twelve years in the fortress learning kryptons and earths history and whatnot. So if Lois was 10 at about that time, and he was 16, they would be 22 and 28 respectively when he came out of the fortress. Add four years of college, 26 and 32, when he went to the Daily Planet.

What's this about how she is older in real life? That does not pertain to the story.

Actually in the fortress of solitude scene Clark is 18, so he would be 30 without the 4 years of college. And also, not to be picky, but Marlon Brando's "narriratoin" is actually a monologue.
