Amy Adams talks about the strength of Lois Lane
Now that Lois Lane has been cast for SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL, what does Amy Adams have to say about the character? The LA Times stopped to talk to Adams about the role during CinemaCon. This is what she had to say:
"I think the role of women in society constantly changes and what I love about Lois Lane is that she’s been very consistently strong, successful, independent. I’m very attracted to that. It was a time when women were really — I don’t want to make some grand statement because I know it will come across as a grand statement — but [women were often limited by society then and] what I loved about her was that she was able to be smart and be feminine and I think that that’s something I know I’m going to teach my daughter, that you don’t have to be a man to be powerful. You can be a powerful woman.”
Yeah, so it's nothing you didn't already know about Lois, but I for one am glad that Adams is on board. When this whole reboot came about, I was originally drawn to Rachel McAdams who, to me, embodies everything that Lois Lane is. Adams is definitely an inspired choice and one to not count out.
Who is willing to give this a chance? If you do, you might get a cookie. I make no promises.
