Director Zack Snyder has cast Amy Adams as Lois Lane in the next Superman film.
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.
