Amy Adams gets the nod to play the Man of Steel’s girlfriend in upcoming ‘Superman’ reboot
In more news of famous red-heads playing famous brunettes, Amy Adams has been cast to play raven-haired ‘Lois Lane’ in Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Superman: Man of Steel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adams is set to star opposite Henry Cavill, who dons the cape as America’s favorite policeman, and joins a cast that includes Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Superman’s parents, and joins a list that includes Margot Kidder, Terry Hatcher, and most recently Kate Bosworth, as actresses who have portrayed the notable newswoman.
Snyder, whose films include 300, Watchmen, and his latest Sucker Punch (which hit theaters this weekend), had nothing but good things to say about the casting of Adams. “…we are excited to announce the casting of [Adams], one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.”
Beautiful is right, as Adams has been one of Hollywood’s most sparkling stars since her breakout role in Disney’s Enchanted. And with big buzz-worthy projects in the works, like portraying Janis Joplin in an upcoming biopic, and “Jane” in the big screen version of the Beat-era masterpiece On the Road, it’s clear she is shaping up to be one of Hollywood’s leading leading ladies. So while we know she can act, and we know she can fill out an outfit, the only question that arises is what will she look like with dark hair?
With this news we look forward to continuing our love affair with the adorable Amy Adams, as the new Superman reboot just got a whole lot more desirable, as if you could get more desirable than this…
