Oscar nominated actress Amy Adams will play Lois Lane in the Zack Snyder-directed / Christopher Nolan-produced Superman: The Man of Steel. Adams will star alongside Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Kevin Costner (Jonathan Kent) and Diane Lane (Martha Kent):
“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].”
Superman: The Man of Steel is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2012.
