Amy Adams talks about the strength of Lois Lane

03.30.2011

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 shes been very consistently strong, successful, independent. Im very attracted to that. It was a time when women were really I dont 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 thats something I know Im going to teach my daughter, that you dont 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.

Extra Tidbit: The Spin Doctor's song "Jimmy Olsen's Blues" is about Jimmy lusting after Lois Lane. "I got it so bad for little miss Lois Lane." The song is off the album, Pocket Full of Kryptonite.

Rachel McAdams was who I was hoping for, but to be honest I never even thought about Amy Adams. She's a terrific choice. Give her dark hair and you've nailed it.

"what I love about Lois Lane is that shes... able to be smart"

She's talking about a character who got fooled by co-worker using a pair of spectacles as a cunning disguise for too many years to count, yeah?

GIGGITY GIGGITY

Zack Snyder sure does want me to have a boner watching this movie with Amy and Diane in it. All jokes aside, Amy will definitely bring the acting chops to this movie and will definitely be better than Bosworth. I mean, shit, she was GREAT in the Fighter. Watch Enchanted and then watch the Fighter. You'll be trippin' balls thinking she has a twin. This just gets better and better.

I understand she wouldn't take the role unless there was at least one scene with Lois demanding orange juice, freshly squeezed.

I dont know a whole lot about Amy Adams but I think its safe to say she will be a much better Lois than Kate Bosworth. She was a shocking choice for Lois Lane in Superman Returns, and to me, dragged the film down because of her weak portrayal.

I hate Amy Adams. That being said, I'm sure she'll be better than Kate Bosworth.

Amy Adams is by far my first choice, but what are you gonna do...

Great casting

Snyder has done a great job of casting and this particular casting of Adams is going to pay off greatly in the end. A strong actress for a strong character. I'm excited!

I'm All In

Once Nolan's involvement was announced I was all in. I know it doesn't guarantee anything, but with every bit of news or casting decision we hear I am feeling more and more certain this is going to be the reboot/relaunch the franchise deserves.
