New Superman 2012 film Cast: Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, Diane Lane, and Kevin Costner
By the way, this is a surprise news (much like Henry Cavill as CK/Superman) as none of my Casting Lois Lane for the new Superman film (Wishlist) was picked, but I love Amy Adams, she's one of my favorite actresses. I'm sure she'll be great as Lois. She's a very good actress too and I love pretty much every film she was in. I wonder if she'll dye her hair brown though...Anyway, Amy Adams also now joins The Many Faces of Lois Lane (Then & Now) (will update this post soon with her on the list...).
Here's  part of the article:
Superman News: Amy Adams will be Lois Lane

This just in — three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams will play journalist Lois Lane in Hollywood’s revival of “Superman.”

The 36-year-old star got the news on Sunday from director Zack Snyder, who phoned her from Paris, where he was promoting his just-opened film, Sucker Punch.” There had been a crush of Hollywood interest in the lead female role in the Warner Bros. project but Snyder said that after meeting with Adams, she was the clear choice to take on a character that dates back to 1938 and has long represented the strong, professional woman who can hold her own against any man – even if he can leap tall buildings in a single bound.

“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder said. “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.”

Snyder declined to discuss the precise prominence of Lois in the story or any plot details about the film but he said the role is “a linchpin” to the project and that he considers it essential that Lois — an FDR-era creation – arrives on screen in 2012 with contemporary appeal and spirit.   “It goes back to what I’ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. What’s important to us is making him relevant and real and making him empathetic to today’s audience so that we understand the decisions he makes.  That applies to Lois as well. She has to be in the same universe as him [in tone and substance].” Read full article.
