amy adams lois lane Amy Adams as a red headed Lois Lane on 'Man of Steel' set

Now don’t freak out. It’s probably not a big deal. But it’s our duty to point out that Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams is apparently portraying a red-headed Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman flick, “Man of Steel.” Okay, go ahead and freak out.

Traditionally, Superman’s beloved has been raven-haired (Margot Kidder) or at least brunette (Kate Bosworth) because, you know, dark hair equals intelligence and respectability. We’re not quite sure what red hair means, so Adams’ Lane is apparently up for interpretation.

While almost exclusively dark haired in the comic books, there was a period of time (albeit a short one) where comic book Lois had red hair so you can’t say it doesn’t draw from the source material. Just hope that Adams’ Lane doesn’t go blonde for some unforseen reason because THEN WE WILL SET THE WHOLE OF CALIFORNIA ON FIRE!!!!!!
