Su­per­man role for Amy

Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss -

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.
