Official: Amy Adams to Play Lois Lane in Superman Reboot


Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have made it official: Lois Lane will indeed make an appearance in their “Superman” reboot despite rumors to the contrary; and what’s more, “The Fighter’s” Amy Adams will be bringing her redheaded sass to Metropolis’ most daring investigative reporter. Adams will be playing the same character previously played by Kate Bosworth in Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns”, but more famously, by Margot Kidder in the Richard Donner movies.

Snyder said in a statement:

Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about. So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.

Curiously, Adams is 36, and the new Superman, Henry Cavill is nearly 10 years younger. Of course, these are Hollywood actors we’re talking about, so I suppose one could “go younger” and the other could “go older” to match up. Or maybe they’ll take the “he’s younger than her cause he’s Superman and he doesn’t age” factor into consideration. Or they could just ignore the whole thing, which is likely.

In any case, here’s your new Lois Lane:

    I like Adams but Lois she is not. A very underwhelming announcement overall.

  • B A T M A N

    she appeared in one episode of Smallville as the “fat eating” girl lol.

  • Dedpool

    Could be worse, but she wouldn’t exactly have been my first choice. Ah well lets see what she does with it.

    Very good casting. I love Amy Adams.

    Very talented and gorgeous. That’s way more what I can say about Kate Bosworth.


    Amy’s cute, but i don’t see her as the new lois lane. Jennifer Love Hewett of GHOST
    WHISPERER is the perfect chois to play lois. she uncanny resembled Margot Kidder
    of the superman films. zack shoukd give a try on her. amy’s better of playing lana
    lang rather than lois since she’d played the food-comping piggie on SMALLVILLE.

  • sherill tan
