Amy Adams Cast as Lois Lane in Snyder’s Superman

March 27, 2011

Three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams will play journalist Lois Lane in Hollywood’s revival of “Superman.”

The 36-year-old star got the news on Sunday from director Zack Snyder, who phoned her from Paris, where he was promoting his just-opened film, “Sucker Punch.” There had been a crush of Hollywood interest in the lead female role in the Warner Bros. project but Snyder said that after meeting with Adams, she was the clear choice to take on a character that dates back to 1938 and has long represented the strong, professional woman who can hold her own against any man – even if he can leap tall buildings in a single bound.

“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.”

For me, I’m happy with the choice. Amy has proven herself to be a very versatile actress who has a wonderful comedic sense of timing and can talk really fast. She conveys a lot of personality in her parts which is something that was sadly lacking in the last depiction of Lois on the big screen.
