November 29, 2016: Amy Adams Says Playing Lois Lane is Tricky

superman-henry-cavill-lois-lane-amy-adams-man-of-steelVariety Studio has released a new “Actors on Actors” video interview in which Amy Adams and Andrew Garfield sit down opposite one another for a chat about playing the iconic roles of Lois Lane and Spider-man.

Amy Adams reveals that she never feels like she owns the role of Lois Lane, especially given the multitude of incarnations of the character that have come before hers.

“That’s the tricky thing with Lois, that I find is, I love playing her, I love everyone I work with, but sometimes it’s tricky because I feel she’s in service of the story instead of the story serving the character,” Adams said. “That sometimes can be tricky when you show up and you really wanna retain a character and you have to serve the story… in a perfect universe they all work together.”

Watch the full video at Variety.com.

The interview will air on PBS SoCal for Variety’s “Actor on Actors” Season 5, presented by The Venetian Las Vegas, which debuts on January 3, 2017.

I hope the next director, whoever it may be, focuses on character as much as action and visuals. It would be a shame to waste Amy Adams or any of the actors really. I want more for her and Henry to do and say. please, please, please give us some good dialogue and speaking parts for them.

I find that comment strange given we had one whole movie dedicated to birthing Superman, and another that is a Lex origin, and a Batman redemption arc in order to help Clark find how Superman can exist in this world.

Same here, man. Though, I think it would’ve been better if WB just let Zack Snyder pursue a MOS trilogy instead of doing a world-building film like BVS, because there was SO much going on in BVS. I loved the film, but I only watch the UC because it has more Superman/Clark scenes (even though, technically, the movie is still primarily about him).

I don’t see Amy and Henry’s potential wasted. I just see them both in a state of development…

Well, while I enjoyed both movies, I’ve been very critical about how they haven’t given clark/Superman a lot to say in either film. There were moments where I thought it was essential he say something to add to his character/motivation/personality (he barely spoke to Zod or tried to talk him out of his plan in MOS and in BVS he spoke even less. During the courtroom scene I was expecting a lengthy monologue on his beliefs and values, but got nothing. Then, once again, he barely spoke to batman to diffuse the situation.). It just seems like they either don’t… Read more »
