Three-time Oscar nominated Adams, 36, will star in Superman: Man of Steel with Henry Cavill, 26, who is set to play Clark Kent.

“There was a big, giant search for Lois. 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 told the Los Angeles Times.

Snyder will attempt to keep the characters of Clark Kent and Lois Lane current.

“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],” Snyder continued.

A few leading actresses reportedly eyed the role of Lois Lane, but Snyder gave Adams the good news on the phone on Sunday. He called her from Paris, where he was promoting his new movie, Sucker Punch.

Superman: Man of Steel is set to hit theaters in December 2012.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
