Hero Complex has reported that Amy Adams has joined Zack Snyder's Superman: Man Of Steel. Not only that but the academy award nominated actress will play "Lois Lane". Hit the jump for the details.
"There was a big, giant search for Lois, 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. 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]."
Adams was not actually among the shortlist revealed back in February which included Malin Akerman, Dianna Agron, Jessica Biel, Rachel McAdams, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Kristen Bell. As far as Lane's involvement in the story, Snyder stated that the role is "a linchpin" to the project and that he considers it essential that Lois arrives on screen in 2012 with contemporary appeal and spirit. We will see.
