Back in January we found out that Brit actor Henry Cavill won the coveted role of Clark Kent in the film that the The Dark Knight team, Christopher Nolan and screenwriter David S Goyer, are also working on.
Adams, who is a three-time Oscar nominee, found out on Sunday via a phone call from Snyder himself. Speaking about the role Snyder said:
“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.”
We don’t know exactly what her role will involve, but Snyder has said she will be “a lynchpin”.
“It goes back to what I’ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today,” he continued.
“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].”
We think Adams, who from Enchanted to The Fighter has been excellent in whatever she has been in, will make a great Lois Lane. She and Cavill are joined by Kevin Costner and Diane Lane who are playing Superman’s adoptive parents, Jonathan and Martha Kent.
Snyder is currently promoting his latest film, an action fantasy called Sucker Punch, which is released in the UK this Friday.
