Does prop disclosure mean Lois Lane's married in Man of Steel?

It's the classic story of Superman, Lois Lane and her ... husband?

Man of Steel wrapped production some time ago, and that means that some of the props from filming are being auctioned off. That might not seem like a big deal at first, but the list of items for sale include something pretty major -- a (faux) diamond wedding ring that is, apparently, owned by one Lois Lane.

That's right! Ms. Lane is, apparently, Mrs. Lane. So is this a Superman Returns situation all over again? Is Lois married at the start of the film to a poor schmuck, a James Marsden type who doesn't stand a chance against Clark Kent? Or will the film end with Lois and Clark getting married?

Either way, this is a pretty major development that will have a major impact on the kind of story they're telling. If Supes is a wife-stealer, then he's a little amoral for a boy scout. If the two do get married, that will still have major implications for both characters and will set this story very far apart from what's happening in the current DC 52 continuity. Not that we're complaining.
