Zack Snyder has put to rest the speculation over whether or not Lois Lane will appear in his upcoming ‘Superman’ reboot by announcing he has cast Amy Adams in the role, Reelzchannel.com is reporting. The director made the announcement via a press release, saying the casting has been the biggest question fans have had for him.
Of Adams, Snyder said that she’s “one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. (Amy) has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: tough, funny, warm ambitious and, of course, beautiful.” Adams replaces Kate Bosworth, who last portrayed Lois, in Bryan Singer’s 2006 movie ‘Superman Returns.’
Adams joins Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent, the parents of Clark Kent, who will be played by Henry Cavill. The movie is set to be released in December 2012. The news also comes after it was confirmed that Viggo Mortensen dropped out of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ and may now be available to play a villain in the ‘Superman’ reboot. Earlier reports have stated that Snyder is looking at Mortensen to play Kryptonian General Zod.
