Amy Adams to Play Lois Lane

Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams (pictured, via) will play Lois Lane in Zach Snyder‘s production of Superman. According to The Los Angeles Times, Snyder has labeled Adams’ character as the “linchpin of the project.”

Snyder explained: “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.”

Superman co-creators Jerry Siegel (writer) and Joe Shuster (artist) based Lois Lane‘s personality on a mix of two real-life journalists, Torchy Blane and Nellie Bly. Other actresses who have portrayed her in previous film and television adaptations include Margot KidderTeri Hatcher, and Kate Botsworth. (via Deadline)
