Amy Adams on Lois Lane: Superman: The Man of Steel (2012)



Amy Adams attended the recent CinemaCon, held in Las Vegas, and commented on landing the coveted role of Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Superman.

“I think the role of women in society constantly changes,” Adams told the LA Times Hero Complex.

”And what I love about Lois Lane is that she’s been very consistently strong, successful, independent. I’m very attracted to that. It was a time when women were really — I don’t want to make some grand statement because I know it will come across as a grand statement — but [women were often limited by society then and] what I loved about her was that she was able to be smart and be feminine and I think that that’s something I know I’m going to teach my daughter, that you don’t have to be a man to be powerful. You can be a powerful woman.”

Adams just found out she will be playing side-by-side Henry Cavill’s Superman this past Sunday, with director Zack Snyder saying, “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.”
