Henry Cavill‘s Superman now has his Lois Lane. Amy Adam‘s has been cast as the Man of Steel’s love interest. Director Zack Snyder — fresh off the release of Sucker Punch — apparently called the actress from Paris to tell her the news. He told The LA Times, “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.” Is she? We’re not quite convinced, but we do think she’ll make a better Lois than Kate Bosworth, who just didn’t fit the part at all. Amy physically fits the Lois Lane type, though. We’ve always thought Lois should look a little retro, and Amy could totally work that look. Plus she has major acting chops too.This is a casting choice we’re probably going to warm up to soon. But will you?
Snyder wants the new movie and it’s actors to have a contemporary, realistic edge saying, “…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].” The new film still doesn’t have a title, but it has quite the cast shaping up. Kevin Costner has reportedly signed on as the superhero’s father Jonathan Kent, and Diane Lane has been cast as Superman’s mother, Martha Kent.
