Amy Adams Cast as Lois Lane in Newest “Superman” Remake

By  | 

Amy Adams is the latest addition to director Zach Snyder’s newest film endeavor, a remake of the classic Superman.  She will be Superman’s leading lady and Daily Planet reporter, Lois Lane.  Adams was phoned from Paris by an eager Snyder, who delivered the exciting news to the thrilled actress just yesterday.

“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder said to the Los Angeles 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.”

Snyder was wise to scoop her up just in time.  Adams is a three-time Oscar nominee—that’s enough credentials to impress just about any Hollywood director these days.  She is known most recently for her role in Best Picture nominated film “The Fighter,” opposite Mark Wahlberg.  The actress also just had her first baby, a 9-month-old daughter Aviana.

While the 36-year-old actress has proven her on-screen skills, we can’t help but wonder if her old-Hollywood air and charm had anything to do with landing this role. Cast as the princess Giselle in Disney’s Enchanted, Adams has a classic look that fits well with Lois Lane’s 1936 debut in the original DC Comics Superman.

This time around, Adams will have to spark some on-screen chemistry with British actor Henry Cavill (Showtime’s “The Tudors”) taking on the role of Clark Kent. Snyder has also cast Clark’s adoptive parents, with Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as a part of this highly anticipated 2012 release.

Are you looking forward to seeing Amy Adams as Lois Lane? How will she look as a brunette? Will you be in theaters for the latest Superman reboot next year?
