Amy Adams Is The New Lois Lane In 'Superman'

The Playlist By Gabe Toro | The Playlist March 27, 2011 at 7:15AM

After shacking up with Batman's brother in "The Fighter," Amy Adams is set to become Superman's dame. According to the L.A. Times, Zack Snyder has found his Lois Lane for the upcoming "Superman" project slated for a late 2012 release, and it's Oscar nominee Adams, who will step into the iconic workaholic high heels. If the rumors are to be believed (and not all of them are), Adams beat out less-pedigreed competition in Kristen Stewart, Jessica Biel, Rachel McAdams, Malin Ackerman, Dianna Agron, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Lindsay Lohan, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Abe Vigoda, Bristol Palin, Justin Bartha, Elizabeth Bathory, Ms. Pac-Man... rumors are rumors, we suppose.

After shacking up with Batman's brother in "The Fighter," Amy Adams is set to become Superman's dame. According to the L.A. Times, Zack Snyder has found his Lois Lane for the upcoming "Superman" project slated for a late 2012 release, and it's Oscar nominee Adams, who will step into the iconic workaholic high heels. If the rumors are to be believed (and not all of them are), Adams beat out less-pedigreed competition in Kristen Stewart, Jessica Biel, Rachel McAdams, Malin Ackerman, Dianna Agron, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Lindsay Lohan, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Abe Vigoda, Bristol Palin, Justin Bartha, Elizabeth Bathory, Ms. Pac-Man... rumors are rumors, we suppose.

Adams is being brought aboard as “a linchpin” to the project according to Snyder, with the intent to keep Lane contemporary and fresh. “There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder says, neither confirming or denying negotiations with Abe Vigoda had stalled. “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.”

After a brief departure in "Superman Returns," where Kate Bosworth was 23 to Brandon Routh's 26 years old, they are returning to the popular dynamic of Lane being a smidgen older (and, likely, more professional) than Clark Kent, as Adams, 36, is paired with an actor, Henry Cavill, nearly a decade younger. Rowr. Adams follows in the footsteps of actresses like Bosworth, Margot Kidder, Erica Durance, Teri Hatcher and, apparently, Uma Thurman, who plays a "Lois Lane" in the star-studded upcoming comedy anthology "Movie 43."

Adams, who can be seen next in "On The Road" and "The Muppets," joins a production that includes Cavill, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner, though she is unquestionably the biggest name currently involved. Could the pieces now start to fall into place for a production gearing to start up soon? Stay tuned. The currently untitled "Superman" is scheduled for release in December, 2012.
