Amy Adams to be the New Lois Lane


In an interview today with the LA Times, director Zack Snyder has revealed that he has picked Amy Adams to play the role of Lois Lane, in his upcoming reboot of the Superman franchise (tentatively titled ‘The Man of Steel‘).

Adams joins a cast that includes Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, and is rumoured to have Viggo Mortensen as Zod, and Linsay Lohan as Ursa (the Kryptonian villains).

I kinda have a huge crush on Amy Adams, so I’m pretty happy with that casting

“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder said. “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.”

“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 and substance].”
