Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel has its big blue boyscout, and even his parents locked in but the remaining question has been who might win the heart of the Last Son of Krypton.
Well it was announced today that Academy Award Nominee Amy Adams will be playing Lois Lane.
Snyder says in a 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 think this is likely the best casting news I have heard for this film. I like who they have lined up for Superman and even thought it was good casting for Mr and Mrs Kent. But this news now has me really jonesing for this movie.
Lois Lane is a strong bold character that I felt they really messed up in Superman Returns. But I think that Amy Adams has the spine to carry off a very likable and very attractive Lois Lane that will be strong and vulnerable at the same time.
I wonder if she will go with the classic dark locks of Ms Lane, or will they enrage the fanboys and make Lane a ginger?
The film is already in pre-production and Snyder will have cameras rolling this summer.
