Superman role for Amy
OSCAR nominee Amy Adams, pictured, has been cast as Lois Lane in the Superman reboot.
The film’s director, Zack Snyder, said Adams received the news Sunday. After meeting with Adams, it was clear to the filmmaker that the Enchanted’ and The Fighter actress was ‘‘ perfect’’ for the role of the dogged Daily Planet reporter and love interest to the Man of Steel.
‘‘ It goes back to what I’ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today,’’ said Snyder. ‘‘ 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.’’
Adams joins a cast that includes Henry Cavill as Superman and Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent.
