Amy Adams Not Officially Out as Lois Lane

Amy Adams as Lois Lane

When she sat down for a chat with Nicole Kidman on an episode of “Actors on Actors” for Variety last week, Amy Adams revealed that her time playing Lois Lane in the DC Films cinematic universe was likely over.

“I think I’m out of the DC Universe now.”, she said. “I think they’re revamping that. I don’t know the details.”

However, in a new interview with, Adams expands on those comments, explaining that she really doesn’t know for sure whether she’s done or not.

“You know what’s funny? I actually don’t know,” Adams said. “I haven’t had any official conversation with anybody. I was just talking with Nicole Kidman about it, and I was like, ‘Oh, I guess I’ve got to be careful what I say!’ But yeah, I haven’t had any word officially.”

Adams debuted as Lois Lane in “Man of Steel”, before reprising the role in both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”.

Her new film, “Vice”, in which she plays the fole of the wife and loyal partner of former US vice president Dick Cheney (played by Christian Bale), is set to be released on December 25.

I’m probably going to get a lot of negative votes on this, so I’m going to just say it. Amy was probably told by her acting agent to say this after what she said last week. Her previous comments might have come off as someone who is not interested in the part anymore. So her agent probably said to her that she needs to say that she’s still interested in the job in order for her to still keep the role provided that they come up with a film for her. But as of yet, there are no plans for… Read more »

Could be right all around Spidey! But… at least it’s not confirmed by the powers that what she said is totally true.

I mean, sure, but who told Routh officially that he was out as Superman a decade ago? Outside of agents telling their clients to “move on”, I don’t think these are the conversations that are happening in Hollywood. Usually, you know you’re out when you see someone else is in doing your previous job.

It’s really hard to know what’s going on in Hollywood these days. One minute it’s”yeah we got a sequel planned.” Then the next minute it’s “ how about a team up movie instead?” Then it’s “ how about we give this character a film instead? To finally “ we need time to think about this, we’ll get back to you on it”
At least that’s the impression that I’m getting.

WB did confirm that a Superman sequel is not their top priority at the moment and would rather focus on a Supergirl film instead. Spidey2878’s assumption could also be right on the money regarding Amy’s agent. Actor’s are always told by studios and agents to promote and support their own films even if they are on Ishtar’s, Gigli’s, Caligula’s and Batman And Robin’s level of craziness and quality …Until they are told otherwise and their roles are replaced with new actors and new creative teams. Studios nowadays are indeed crazy and opportunistic lot.

It’s looking more and more like the powers that be are just waiting for contracts to expire. If the studio wanted to drop the cast and go in a different direction, there’s likely a buy-out clause in their contracts (or whoever negotiated them is an idiot).

So it’ll be a repeat of what happened after Superman Returns.

Now this is just my opinion, since I know that there are a lot of Cavill supporters, but I feel that they should just reboot the Superman movie series.To be honest, I’ve never liked this current movie version of Superman or Lois.Superman in my opinion had seemed to be very much of a downer person. And Lois in my opinion would always need his help. I have counted at least six times that Superman saved her life in both man of steel and Batman v Superman. The first time was at his fortress when he saved her from his robot.… Read more »
