Amy Adams Picked to Play Lois Lane in Superman
MARCH 28, 2011 - Amy Adams has been picked to play Lois Lane in the upcoming Superman reboot, filling the shoes worn at various times by Noel Neill, Margot Kidder, Teri Hatcher and Kate Bosworth.
Adams will play the Daily Planet reporter and key love interest of Superman/Clark Kent, portrayed by British actor Henry Cavill. Diane Lane and Kevin Costner will play his adoptive parents.
Zack Snyder (Sucker Punch) will direct the Warner Bros. project, which is set for a December 2012 release.
"Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about," Snyder said in a statement yesterday. "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."
Adams received an Oscar nomination this year for her supporting role in The Fighter.
