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?

I am cautiously optimistic regarding this movie. The actors are all top notch. Snyder has been hit or miss with his direction. Hopefully this will be one of his hits.

So.. she kept the red hair?

Posted by Reignmaker

I used to think little of Amy Adams. She always seemed to play those ditzy roles, like the one that made her famous in Enchanted. Then I saw her in the The Fighter, and she was awesome. Here's hoping she doesn't lose any of the tough, street-smarts that are central to Lois.

Is she supposed to be Lana or Lois...?

Does it matter she has red hair? I'm more interested in the performance Amy gives personally than the hair colour she has in the film.

Man Amy is one good looking woman

Every time I see photos of Amy on set of MOS I get that twitch of rage.

Amy Adams as Lois Lane was the best casting choice the film made.

All the pieces are in place for an amazing movie. We will just have to wait and see what happens.

For those of us who are a fan of the darkness, dark hair, it matters. Lois just isn't herself unless she has the darkness. It's going to be distracting.

Eh, Lois having a different hair color is one of the smallest changes in this film. What about Perry White, for example? Or the (supposedly) monstrous Zod?

I fail to see how that's the case. What if Amy looked almost exactly like Lois but didn't act like her at all? That's far more distracting. Teri Hatcher didn't have raven coloured hair and she gave a great performance as Lois Lane in Lois and Clark.

@kingdomenic: Too right, the performance could be great, but with the little things changed you spend too much time noticing what "should have been" Why do films set in an established world if you are going and change a ton of small details for no real good reason? Is hair dye that hard to use?

Posted by gjary

@Lvenger: It kind of does matter when a different established character is known to have red hair already and you start to confuse people before the film has even finished being made, it's just a minor niggle that will grind. where as more blatant large change could be forgiven if they have good reason.

Edited by Icon

It is not like this is the first time an actress playing Lois doesn't have dark hair. Noel Neill had red hair too. Plus Lois had auburn hair in the comics for much of the 90's and early 2000's. Whatever, it's just another colour. If people are fixated on that to the detriment of their enjoyment of the film that's just sad. Makes me wonder what else they won't allow themselves to enjoy.

@cameron83:

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'll refer to Icon's comment to reply to this. Hope you don't mind Icon!

@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 point...lol) 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).

Posted by gjary

@Lvenger: Its fair enough, and all down to personal opinion anyway, so I'm not saying anyones opinion isn't valid, but if they want to please the long term fans they should find a way to make it all as authentic to the lore as possible. I know in reality the hardcore comic book fans will never have priority over the mass public, but in my ideal daydream world I would always see the films the way their creators may have been picturing them as they sat writing the scripts and drawing the thumbnails.

Edited by Dernman

She wouldn't look like Lois even if she changed the color of her hair. I like her as an actress but she is just as bad a choice as the one they chose in the last movie. Yes the way a person acts is important but so is the look. If you can't get a certain amount of both in your choice then you're failing at casting right for the part. Besides which I have seen most everything she has done, both funny, serious and she just doesn't have the same type of vibe, charisma as I would imagine Lois. It wont ruin the movie for me but it's disappointing that they don't try to put more effort into picking the right actress.

@Dernman: Well said!

Posted by FoxxFireArt

I'm kind of looking forward to this movie, but they burned us once with that last film. As long as they learned the lessons from the mistakes in SUPERMAN RETURNS. There's some chance.

Here's hoping this Lois Lane cares more about journalistic integrity than how she's being used in the comics.

People whine about Lois's Red hair, but not Bruce's Brown hair in the Nolan's Movies? SEXIST!

It matters to me. Don't get me wrong, she's a talented actress, and she had one of the strongest roles in The Fighter, but the decision to not do anything to look like the comic book character shows me that she lacks that push to go the extra mile. When Jeff Bridges was chosen to be Obadiah Stane in Iron Man, Favreau specifically told him that he didn't have to shave his head for the part. Bridges did it anyway, and to me, shows me that he has that dedication. I'm looking forward to MoS, and I know Adams will be a great Lane, but her decision kind of disappoints me.

I LOVE Amy Adams, especially as the way she fills out a pair of pilot pants in "A Night at the Museum..." However, she is not a good choice to portray Lois.

Edited by geoff2005

well with the hair color i can understand its like changing superman cape to black or blue. Lois was defined with black hair while lana lang has red.

Since many are expecting WB to get their shit together.... you know the rest

brown and black are closet enough while red vs black is a big difference hahah

@Mrfuzzynutz: I agree I dont know if she can act stern as most of her movies her character seems sweet then again knowing WB they prob changed the universe and made Lois Red head and a sweet girl

Posted by hyperman

@Lvenger: Well, I understand that actors have to make some sacrifices for the characters that play in order to inject more realism to it. One of these sacrifices, for instance, is dyeing your hair. Chris Reeve is an excellent actor and he played Supeman brilliantly, but he didn't have natural dark hair. It's hard to imagine a fair-haired Superman in such an important movie.

@geoff2005: Have you seen The Fighter? Her performance in that was very well done. That's the only reason I'm not really concerned about her acting chops.

AMY WHY YOU HAVE RED HAIR?!?!?!?!?

She reminds me of Wonder Woman. Not Lois Lane...

Posted by Kal'smahboi

Wow, I expected more in this article. Either way, I'm super excited about the film and have the utmost faith in Ms. Adams.

Posted by Lvenger

@Gambit1024: @Dernman: @Onemoreposter: @gjary: @hyperman: You're all forgetting one thing. Remember when Lois looked like this?

At one point it was brown and then it was red. So Amy Adams is a ginger. Big whoop. It's whether she can perform the part of Lois Lane well that is the key crucial thing. It's not as if she's always had black hair so this is hardly a big change. As long as Amy acts the part, I'll be happy. You can't have everything you know.

And Bruce Wayne had brown instead of black hair yet there's not all this outrage about how he didn't go the extra mile with his character. Though he was a terrible Batman IMO.

Posted by Spideycap

She'll make a good LL. Sexy, but in a girl next door kinda way.

Posted by Gambit1024

@Lvenger: I'm not asking for everything. I'm just saying that it's odd to me that she didn't do it. Besides, Lois's hair is dark, and has always been dark. Adam's hair is bright. It's not about the color, it's the shade (which is why I don't care about Bale).

@Lvenger:   

   So Amy Adams is a ginger. Big whoop

It is a big whoop because they hire someone who doesn't look the part they are set to play and like I said even if she died he hair she would look the part.


 It's whether she can perform the part of Lois Lane well that is the key crucial thing. 

Being able to look the part is a crucial to being able to perform the role. If you don't look like the character then you're failing at being the character. 


 It's not as if she's always had black hair so this is hardly a big change. As long as Amy acts the part, I'll be happy. You can't have everything you know. 

Black and Brown is a lot closer then red and easier to deal with. Regardless like I said it goes beyond just the hair when it comes to her looks.  No you can't have everything but you can at least try to get as much of everything as you can instead of not even trying. The past two roles they didn't even bother to try. If you're not going to try then why even bother caring about anything of the character.

And Bruce Wayne had brown instead of black hair yet there's not all this outrage about how he didn't go the extra mile with his character. Though he was a terrible Batman IMO.

I guess you don't remember all the outrage when Val Kilmer tried the role. I was on several sites that hated him because he didn't look the role. Not to mention the other guys who tried.

And boys and girls this is why Smallville sucked, well lana anyway they changed her race completely in that series but hey can't compare TV to a Movie.

Posted by Gambit1024

@Omega-Man : Smallville had much bigger problems than that, lmao. But yeah, that was a dumb casting choice.

@Gambit1024: Oh I know that, I hated the show and I'm a MASSIVE Superman fan. But giving what people are saying I thought I'd say that lol.

Uhhh yeah I remember. Those were awesome times. Her hair was never red in the comics though. Also, your acting like changing between dark brown and black is the same thing as changing from black to red. It's not...at all. PLUS there's a long standing precedence of Lois being portrayed with brown hair outside of comics. Teri Hatcher, Erica Durance, and Kate Bosworth all had brown hair. You know who else had brown hair? Probably the most iconic Lois of all time.

Also, which Batman are you talking about, because like Lane, Batman in film usually has brown hair. You remember Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and Christian Bale? They all had brown hair while playing Wayne.

Yeah dude. Changing between Brown and Black isn't a biggy. Suddenly going blonde or redheaded from black/dark brown or vice versa is.

@Gambit1024 said:

Yeah, Smallville was all over the place. Gotta admit though, Kruek was smoking hot, even if she was black haired and Chinese instead of redheaded and Scottish.

Posted by Gambit1024

@Onemoreposter: Smoking hot.... Also, Lana Lang was Scottish?

@Gambit1024 said:

The surname Lang can be found in both Germanic and Chinese cultures. The Germanic version of the name is most prevalent among the English, the Scottish, and the Germans though I think the Germans usually spell the name Lange. Going off that and her red hair, I always assumed that Lana was ethnically Scottish.
