Amy Adams Officially Cast as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's 'Superman'!
Wow, surprise casting for Superman: Man of Steel today. The LA Times reports that Oscar nominee Amy Adams will play the iconic role of Lois Lane in the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot. "There was a big, giant search for Lois," Snyder told the Times. "For us it was a big thing and obviously a really important role. We did a lot of auditioning but we had this meeting with Amy Adams and after that I just felt she was perfect for it." That completes the four main roles: Henry Cavill as Superman, plus Diane Lane & Kevin Costner as Ma & Pa Kent, respectively. Do you think Adams is the perfect choice for Lois Lane, too?
Amy Adams is coming off of another Oscar nomination for her role in David O. Russell's The Fighter and was just rumored for another lead role in Adam Shankman's Rock of Ages. For those that don't know(?!), Lois Lane is the intrepid reporter for The Daily Planet who is also Superman's #1 love interest. Unlike with The Amazing Spider-Man and the lack of Mary Jane, it looks like Lois Lane will be a central character in this reboot. "It goes back to what I’ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. What's important to us is making him relevant and real and making him empathetic to today's audience so that we understand the decisions he makes. That applies to Lois as well. She has to be in the same universe as him [in tone/substance]," Snyder says. I hope she delivers another Oscar worthy performance!
