Amy Adams Cast As Lois Lane In 'Superman: The Man Of Steel'

Three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams will portray Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s reboot of 'Superman'.

“There was a big, giant search for Lois, 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.” said the director.

It is not known yet how big a part the character of Lois Lane will feature in the film, but Snyder has said her role is "a linchpin" of the film and also said:

“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].”

Adams now joins the ever growing list of confirmed cast members Henry Cavill, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner.
