Actress Amy Adams Opens Up About 'Man of Steel' Movie

The actress reveals her excitement about the movie as well as whether she would reprise the role of Lois Lane onscreen.

We've seen plenty of Man of Steel images, commentary and more leak out gradually. Earlier this fall we got a look at the teaser trailer for the upcoming film and we've seen plenty of photographs from the movie set. Although we've seen what actor Henry Cavill looks like as Superman, there hasn't been a whole lot of talk from Lois Lane. That is, of course, until now. Actress Amy Adams who plays Lois in the upcoming Man of Steel movie recently spoke with Digital Spy. She was asked about the role as well as whether she would play Lois in the future.

Actress Amy Adams and director Zack Snyder on 'Man of Steel' set
"I would be more than happy to jump onto a sequel but you've got to, what's the saying, don't put the cart before the horse? Don't count your chickens before they hatch," she answered. "I always take things one day at a time."

Based on her answer, it seems Adams is not (at this time) signed on to do a sequel, but that the idea of reprising the role of Lois Lane is not out of the question for her since she did seem to enjoy working on the film. According to the actress, she "absolutely loved" the trailer and she is really looking forward to seeing the film. She also mentions she hopes "Superman fans [are] excited, too." It is always interesting to discover how much about a film an actress or an actor does not know, but it is nice to see that Ms. Adams is looking forward to Man of Steel. Not only that, but her appearance in a sequel is not out of the question. What do you think, however? Are you looking forward to Man of Steel and to seeing Amy Adams play Lois Lane?

Man of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon and many more. The film is schedule to hit theaters nationwide on June 14th, 2013. Are you looking forward to the movie?

@Icon: Yeah, but changing something that has been set into fans minds is just stupid when it doesn't need to be changed. If they gave Superman blond hair you may be more inclined to agree, (possibly, I don't know you so maybe you wouldn't mind that either! I mean no disrespect, just stating my but in my mind without good reason it's just the same, you are taking something from an existing world and altering it due to some silly reason (like the actress doesn't suit that colour but does suit the part etc).

I get that, but I was simply pointing out that this isn't the first time Lois has had red or red-ish hair (both in live action and in the comics), so it's not that big of a change for fans (and certainly not like randomly making Superman blonde).

I still don't know how to feel about a dark Superman. It may end up working, but it may end up bombing

I know it's irrational but I too am opposed to the haircolor even though I love Amy Adams.

Here's my objection: I happen to really enjoy that DC has so many raven-haired women. Black hair is bold, it's severe, it's dramatic, you don't see it nearly enough. So many girls go for this sort of mousey, neutral, faded out look which is exactly what Amy Adams has. You call that Ginger? Ginger sounds to sassy for what that is. It's an indecisive brown/blonde shade of hair that happens to be sorta red too. It's dull.

I just don't think it's right.

I'm definitely looking forward tot his but Amy's gonna have to convince me she plays a good Lois. Right now she is the only misgiving I have about the film. She better surprise the hell outta me is all I'm saying.

for crying out loud, whether it's a screenshot from a video game, or something from a movie, the comments section populates itself solely with the superficial morons and idiots, Amy Adams is a great actress, wait for the fucking movie.

I haven't been keeping track of any of the reports or tracking the movie's plot etc. I saw the preview during the DKR and originally thought it was an Aquaman movie. Still, I'm willing to bet anything, it will be better then the last Superman movie attempt. Which isnt saying much I guess.

Yep, Superman Returns had some good performances lost in a mess of a movie, really was underwhelming. This one is almost incomprehensible based on what has been shown, I'm not asking for a spoiler but at least give us a solid glimpse of what is to be expected.

@LaserLambert: Judi Dench is a great actress, an amazing one, doubt she'd pull off a good Lois though, and she'd have white hair!

The film has to be good, first.

I'm pumped for this movie. Amy Adams as Lois.....not so much.

I think this movie will get a better,fans....if you want to complain about DC's lack of movies,first you must see this movie.If you want a sequel,you have to hold up your end of the deal!

Supposedly, if the movie is crap, I'm not going to go see it just to get a sequel. This is Superman we're talking about. He'll get new movies no matter what. Especially if he gets a "He's The One" movies like Donner did or Snyder (so far) seems to be making.

@Dernman: I wasn't born when Kilmer became Batman. That was before my time lol.

@Gambit1024: Fair points. It's just not as big a deal to me that's all.

It's not a dark Superman film. I still don't know why people think this. It's a more mature serious Superman which is a good thing. But it's no means dark at all. He's not gonna start screaming at people and threaten them like Batman does. It's just gonna be more serious. That's all.

@Onemoreposter: This image looks kind of red to me. Either that or aubern. Or maybe I've misinterpreted it as red. In any case, the black hair isn't that big a deal IMO.

And as Dernman said, there was some outrage to Kilmer being Batman but I don't know anything about that. And according to Gambit, Adams has performed well in the films she's been in. That's a good enough reassurance for me to overlook something as trivial as hair colour.

I'm not saying she's a bad actor but Amy Adams is no Lois Lane:P My favoritt Lois has always been Teri Hatcher, she has the looks and attitude as Lois, in fact she is Lois to me :)

Why she's Lois Lane I'll never know.

@Mr_Athrilla: But already fans are assuming it's crap because he doesn't have panties and a yellow belt on him.

And while dc IS bad at movies.......well,yea dc is bad at movies,you got me there

Posted by davidgrantlloyd

She's definitely a talented actress. I'm sure she'll deliver a good performance.

Posted by DarkShadows

I'm not going to say any crap about this movie yet, sure DC is horrible at making live-action movies but the Man of Steel does looks promising to me. I'm actually excited for it.

How about they make a good movie first? Then we see it,Then the sequel will happen. But we the fans will not support a terrible franchise because it has the Superman name on it.

And the reason DC doesn't have a lot of movies out is because DC is terrible at marketing, and the people that direct these projects don't understand the characters. (see Wonder Woman pilot, Green Lantern, and Johna Hex)


I'm not expecting much with this movie, cautiously pessimistic about the whole JL franchise, if this movie doesn't get incredible reviews and make tons of cash for WB I think they might scrap the JL movie, because if you can't get people excited for Superman then your not going to be able to for the Flash

I thought the actress did ok but the script sucked
