Amy Adams Cast as Lois Lane

Zack Snyder has chosen Amy Adams to play Lois Lane in the Superman reboot. She’ll join Henry Cavill who’ll play Clark Kent and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane, who will play ma and pa Kent. Nerd boner level: semi.

“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder said. “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.”

Did the meeting go like… Zack Snyder: “Big Oscar winner, want to be in movie?” [Throws money in Amy Adam’s face]. Amy Adams: “Yes!” Zack Snyder: “Sweet!” [Does a fist pump]

Snyder declined to discuss the precise prominence of Lois in the story or any plot details about the film but he said the role is “a linchpin” to the project and that he considers it essential that Lois — an FDR-era creation – arrives on screen in 2012 with contemporary appeal and spirit.

She better arrive in 2012 with a contemporary appeal and spirit. Wait. This means she’s going to dress real slutty and want sex all the time, right? What am I thinking. This is Zack Snyder. Of course she will.

“It goes back to what I’ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. 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].”

Whew. I’m glad that’s settled. One thing I was worried about was whether or not Lois would be in the same Universe as her god damn boyfriend.

This still doesn’t instill a lot of confidence. Unless all I wanted to see was lots of six packs, super slow-mos and stylized fight scenes. In which case, where do I pre-order tickets?
