Amy Adams Cast As Lois Lane For New ‘Superman’ Movie
This time around, L.L. will be played by A.A.
Three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams will play Lois Lane in the new Superman movie, according to the LA Times’s Hero Complex blog.
Director Zack Snyder reportedly called Adams yesterday in Paris to congratulate her. Somewhat surprisingly, Snyder did not use any of the actresses from his new film Sucker Punch, a $82-million action flick that made $19-million in its opening this weekend.
Earlier this year, Henry Cavill was announced as the Man of Steel. Kevin Costner and Diane Lane were recently cast as Superman’s adoptive Earth parents, the Kents.
This isn’t Adams’s first time with an on-screen Clark Kent; in 2001, she appeared in the first season of Smallville… because somebody from Smallville should make it into the movie.
Lois Lane has previously been played on screen by such actresses as Phyllis Coates, Noel Neill, Leslie Anne Warren, Margot Kidder, Teri Hatcher, Erica Durance, and Kate Bosworth; and has been voiced by Anne Heche, Christina Hendricks, Dana Delany, Kyra Sedgwick, Ginny McSwain, and Joan Alexander.
Joanne Siegel, the inspiration for Lois Lane and wife of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel, passed away last month at age 93.
The Warner Bros. film is scheduled to be released in December 2012.
