amy adams getty Amy Adams is Lois Lane in new 'Superman' movieIt looks like Amy Adams it the next star to join Henry Cavill, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner in the new “Superman” movie. The Los Angeles Times’ Hero Complex blog is reporting Adams received the news Sunday (March 27) when director Zack Snyder called her in Paris to offer her the role.

Snyder tells LAT, “There was a big, giant search for Lois. For us it was a
big thing and obviously a really important role. 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.”

In the as-of-yet untitled “Superman” reboot, Snyder would not comment on the size of Adams’ role, but he does say that Lois is “a lynchpin” in the story. Adams is just coming off an Oscar nomination for her work in “The Fighter” and has been a favorite of ours since back in her “Office” guest arc.

What do you think, “Superman” fans? Is Amy a good choice? And we wonder – will she trade her signature red tresses for Lois Lane’s traditional raven hair?
