Here is some great casting news to start the week off right. The LA Times is reporting that Amy Adams will play Lois Lane in director Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot. Adams, who was recently nominated for an Oscar for The Fighter, has signed on to play Clark Kent’s love interest opposite Superman himself, Henry Cavill. “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.”
Amy Adams is the perfect choice to take on the role of Lois Lane. The Academy Award nominated actress has created an impressive resume with films like Doubt, Julie and Julia, Sunshine Cleaning, Enchanted, The Fighter, and is currently working on Disney’s new Muppets movie.
Zack Snyder is currently promoting his film Sucker Punch that hit theaters this weekend. He declined to comment on what kind of presence Lois Lane will play in his Superman revival. Actress Kate Bosworth most recently played the character in Bryan Singer’s Superman: Returns from 2006. Here is hoping Adams can turn in a performance that is far superior to Bosworth’s stiff, boring, and uninspired role.
