March 27, 2011: Amy Adams Cast as Lois Lane

Amy Adams Hero Complex at LATimes.com reports that Amy Adams has been cast in the role of Lois Lane for Zack Snyder's new Superman movie. The three-time Oscar nominee, best known for her roles in films such as "Enchanted," "The Fighter," and "Night at the Museum 2", was selected after an extensive search says Snyder.

    "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."

    Snyder declined to discuss the precise prominence of Lois in the story or any plot details about the film but he said the role is "a linchpin" to the project and that he considers it essential that Lois - an FDR-era creation - arrives on screen in 2012 with contemporary appeal and spirit.

    "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]."
