Well considering the names that were being kicked around for the role of Lois Lane this one was not one I expected. The LA Times has today exclusively announced that Zack Snyder has cast The Fighter star Amy Adams to play the role of Lois Lane in the upcoming Superman Man of Steel.
In the piece Zack Snyder says they auditioned alot of people but after having Amy Adams read for the role of Lois lane it was pretty much a done deal. He also spoke about the context of Superman and where he sees it going saying quote;
“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].”
What are your thoughts on Amy Adams playing Lois Lane in Superman Man of Steel? Amy Adams has had a long career but the biggest distinction she has to date is her role in The Fighter which our own Luke Crum raved about. [ The Fighter Review ]
