Amy Adams, best known for her roles in The Fighter and Ella Enchanted, won the role as Lois Lane in Zach Snyder’s upcoming Superman film (EW). She joins Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane in the cast. Snyder said in an an official Warner Bros statement:
“Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about. So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today…Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.”
I wasn’t excited for the Supes movie at all until this news; Adams is a first-rate actress and I have little doubt she’ll pull off the role. Now we just need news of Supes’ villain–maybe someone other than Lex this time, like Braniac or Darkseid. We’ll see!
