Amy Adams Is Lois Lane

Amy AdamsDon’t like this casting.

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.

She’s too young to play Lois Lane. Easily the weakest casting choice in Superman Returns was Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane. Lois should be more sophisticated and world-weary, as a contrast to Clark. I’m just not seeing it here with Amy Adams.
