Amy Adams is Lois Lane

March 28th, 2011 // 28 Comments

Plucky (Why did I just write that?) Oscar nominee Amy Adams has been cast as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel which is apparently still happening despite Sucker Punch eating a giant dick, according to almost universal consensus. The LA Times reports:

“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].”

I’m actually onboard with this because if there’s one thing Amy Adams does, it’s sell the shit out of every role she’s in. Whether it’s Enchanted, Night at the Museum: Whatever The Hell The Second’s One Called or her Oscar-nominated role in The Fighter. (Some people say it was the partial nudity that cinched it, my money’s on the muffin top.) In the meantime, Viggo Mortensen is looking more and more like he’ll be cast as the villain now that talks for Snow White have fallen through which means we’re probably gonna see a fight between Superman and a buck-naked General Zod ala Eastern Promises.

ZACK: Viggo, gonna really need you to put some pants on, buddy. The movie’s PG-13.
VIGGO: Everyone has a pee-pee, Zachary.
ZACK: *sigh* Well, at least your evil plan isn’t real estate like the last one. ACTION!

    First a stupid choice for wonder woman and now this.

    I splash “Warlock Napalm” on her @$$….WINNING!

    Lame. She is so overrated.

    Don’t give a damn about the film project…….but yay for gingers!

    She’s a lesbian thrill seeker

    I’d bang her then stuff her in a phone booth.

    am I the only one getting tired of these superhero movie re-boots?

      The silver coke-spoon ivy leaguers who get all the ‘writing’ gigs in follywood are too soulless to come up with new stories, so why not just rehash every old comic book, sitcom, and campy cop show? Cha-ching.

      At least they’re better than the dozens of 1980s tv show remakes that tv networks keep attempting. Rarely are they as good as the original series.

      That being said, I can’t see Amy Adams as Lois Lane, even if she does color her hair black. But they can’t really do any worse than Superman Returns.

    • i’m tired of the word “reboot” it’s so bad

  9. Rough--there will be no fighting in the war room

    Why am I getting the Margo Kidded vibes from her. Beautiful woman, but couldn’t they get someone, that would make my blood boiled? That chick with the boney chest I like.

    Is she also the new Jigsaw?

  11. Man, I was totally wrong! The world did need another Superman Movie!

    I’m so irritated by the casting of this way too old lady who is just so NOT RIGHT for Lois. Why have they failed in the last like 15 comic boook/superhero movies to cast an actress with the right coloring and look so they don’t have to dye their hair (and look terrible imo)? Kirsten Dunst wasn’t a redhead (Spiderman), Kate Bosworth wasn’t a brunette (Superman Returns), Emma Stone isn’t a blond (sSpiderman reboot), Blake Lively isn’t a brunette (Green Lantern), list goes on and on. Why is it so hard?

    • Frank

      actually, emma stone IS a natural blonde.

      • Sugar

        She certainly doesn’t look it. Why has she had reddish hair for years then?

      • Frank

        “Although known as a redhead, Stone is naturally a blonde. She landed her first role as a teenager after dyeing her hair dark brown. Film producer Judd Apatow had her change from a brunette to a redhead for her role in Superbad”

    This is not an opinion, but a fact – A.A will do MUCH better than that cunty, perma-ragging ball-buster who was in the last movie. There were so many things wrong with that flick I don’t know where to begin.

    The technology is here to make a real Superman movie – where there can be more than one action scene per Act. Fuck the love story – that’s been completely played out. Some cutesy stuff is fine, but Superman needs to be doing other things than mooning over LL.

    • Sugar

      Kate Bosworth looked like an undernourished fetus in that role. And she was supposed to have completed grad school and have been an established journalist for years right? Laughable.

        Whats laughable is your constant feeble attempts at coming up w witty insults. That is to say, you really suck at it. Not only that, you’re awfully whiney and bitter when it comes to your superhero movies and their leading lady roles…

        We’re all waiting with bated breath at your next zinger….

      • Sugar

        I wasn’t trying to be witty I was trying to be insulting. She honestly looked about 12 years old. The real question is why are you so personally insulted by what my opinion is? Are you posting from the library at middle school? Kate herself? Any way you look at it, you are a loser posting on a forum and nobody gives a shit. I’m going to work now, bye.

    Not Lois Lane. She’s better as Lana Lang, the other gal who had the hots for Supe. She was always the redhead and Lois was the brunette.

    • The Listener

      You’re absolutely right! I didn’t think of that. She really does make a much better Lana Lang than Lois Lane.

  15. Bad reviews on Sucker Punch? For reals?
    Fuck I wanted that flick to be good. RT has it at 21% (fucked…) and IMDb has it at 6.8 (above average). (?!)

    Screw it… I think I still gotta’ go see it at the IMAX so’s I can know for sure.

    It appalls me that I actually know who she is. She’s full of moxie, alright, just sadly and utterly untalented.

  17. did she get really bad plastic surgery? That doesn’t look a damned thing like her!
