Henry Cavill's Clark Kent now has a Lois Lane. Numerous news organizations are now reporting that Amy Adams ( The Fighter, Enchanted, TV's The Office) will be playing the plucky Daily Planet reporter in Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman film. Adams was reportedly phoned by Mr. Snyder today and told that the role was hers.

“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder said in an interview with the LA Times' Hero Complex blog. “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.”

Some have noted that there will be an interesting dynamic between Cavill and Adams, as the latter is nearly nine years older. Also interesting is Adam's status as a redhead bombshell; it'll be interesting to see what she looks like as a dark brunette.

I can already picture her ruining the movie....she's kind of an annoying actress, just watch Julie & Julia and Leap Year and you'll see what I mean

#4 Posted by Grim (2081 posts) - - Show Bio

yes. likey. Sexy and strong. beautiful, young, but adult looking. WIN.

#5 Posted by Sydpart2 (1092 posts) - - Show Bio

She looks more like Lana than Lois...

#9 Posted by CrimsonAvenger (1162 posts) - - Show Bio

Isn't she a little old for henry Cavill? She's 36 and he's 27, really wish they went with somebody his age.

TITTIES!
 
*ahem* Well, I find it hard to imagine her as Lois Lane, but as others have said...I feel she can make it work. I've only seen a couple of the films she's in (Enchanted, Sunshine Cleaning...I think that's it...) and she seems like a good actress. All we can do is hope for the best.

Based on the pic, she looks more suited to play Poison Ivy than any other character. ;p

#12 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio
@CrimsonAvenger: yeah she is

That's what I thought as well. I can't see her as a brunette or with black hair.
Edit: But then again, I do remember seeing Lois with red hair at one time.

 @Primmaster64:
 
Zack Snyder is now making Superman a cougar, on top of all his other powers he now attracts older women.

#15 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio
@CrimsonAvenger: LOL, would have been nicefor someone his age....She's gonna be 40 in the sequel.

I always kind of assumed that Lois was older than Clark. But maybe not that much older.  
 
Either way this casting is... interesting. To say the least.  
#17 Posted by TDK_1997 (15084 posts) - - Show Bio

We'll see if she is right for Lois

#18 Posted by SHAFEMAN (54 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like this pick and I agree with walkingcarpet , I always thought of Clark being younger than Lois and that being part of the reason he fell for her so quickly

Two or three years isn't bad but 9 years is kind of weird for him. It is an interesting casting choice, not sure what direction Zack Snyder is heading in but hopefully it's somewhere good.

That is just plain weird that Lois will be over 40, I just realized Diane Lane who will be playing Martha Kent is 46.

She doesnt look anything like lois. They should have selected a more famous actress , I mean if all the actors are like her the movie will be a fail.

#22 Posted by The WeatherMan (3214 posts) - - Show Bio

She was absolutely great in The Fighter, so if she brings that kind of gravitas to this role, the should do great. She can play a strong, independent woman, like Lois Lane. Plus, I think she is drop dead sexy. 

#23 Posted by Zamir (15 posts) - - Show Bio

i hope she plays Lois Lane like her character in the "The Fighter" that would be great

#24 Posted by Icon (2106 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, she is the best actor they've cast for this new movie so far. That's for sure. But with Snyder at the helm I'm still not interested. 

#25 Posted by MrCipher (276 posts) - - Show Bio

I can totally see everyone's issue with the age difference but for the record when the 1st superman came out (the 70s movie) I swore Margot Kidder was like 10 years older than Christopher Reeve. Turns out she was only 4 years older than him but she looked a hell of a lot older to me.

I think Amy Adams is beautiful. I have no problem with that casting choice.

#26 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio
@CrimsonAvenger: I always saw Clark as older than Lois.
#27 Posted by Jacquenette_Harper (86 posts) - - Show Bio

I like Amy Adams and hope she will do good as Lois!

@CrimsonAvenger: Lois would be the cougar in this relationship.
#30 Posted by Final Arrow (24388 posts) - - Show Bio

Would have preferred to see her as Vicky Vale... but still I am good with this.

@CrimsonAvenger:  Same issue with Christian Bale (37)  & Anne Hathaway (28)? Cause I don't see people shocked and horrified over that age disparity.
#32 Posted by neomech (22 posts) - - Show Bio

It really doesn't matter what the actual age difference is, it matters what the age difference looks like in the movies. Lots of actors and actresses believably pull off roles that are younger or older than they are in real life. I'm sure they will be a very believable couple, age-wise.

I did not realize he was 37 and she was 28, at least she resembles Selina Kyle and isn't an Italian Nicole Kidman. I think they made Selina younger because finding an actress Bale's age to play Catwoman is nearly impossible.
#34 Posted by ValendianKnight (297 posts) - - Show Bio

Eh, die her hair black and we're good to go. Heard great things from her performance in  The Fighter, so I like so far. Age difference doesn't matter cause they can make her appear younger if need be.

#35 Posted by caesarsghost (559 posts) - - Show Bio

This is incredible, the casting for this movie has been absolutely perfect!
#36 Posted by HaloKing343 (1252 posts) - - Show Bio

@shawn87: I think those 3 Academy award nominations and those 3 Golden Globes say different.

It's actually perfect. Lois is supposed to be a little older than Clark.
#47 Posted by Kal'smahboi (3572 posts) - - Show Bio
@Primmaster64: She really does. They really need to do her up for the role. Even dark contact lenses would be ideal.
