Margot Kidder on Amy Adams and Henry Cavill: Superman: The Man of Steel (2012)

comic book, movie, television, video game pic MTV called up Margot Kidder and asked her what she thought about the new Lois Lane, Amy Adams, and also on new Superman, Henry Cavill.

“She’s a brilliant, wonderful actress! She’s incredible. She’s an extraordinarily accomplished young lady — and gorgeous and full of energy and spirit. She’s so different from part to part, it’s going to be really interesting to see what she does with Lois,” said Kidder.

Apparently, there has been some internet chatter about Amy Adams, who is 36 years young, being slightly older than Cavill, who is 27.

Kidder puts that notion to rest.

“They are? Who cares! What a bizarre thing to be concerned about. She certainly doesn’t look older than him, ” she says.

When asked about Henry Cavill, Kidder compares him with Christopher Reeves and says Cavill is a lot sexier.

“Oh my god, he’s heaven. He’s heaven! He’s got a sexuality! As wonderful as Christopher [Reeve] was — and he was wonderful and perfect — he was not exactly a big steaming heap of sexuality. And this Cavill really is. I loved him on “The Tudors.” I couldn’t get enough of him.”

Kidder offers up some compliments to director Zack Snyder and also to the cast, which includes Diane Lane and Kevin Costner who play Ma and Pa Kent.

“I think the casting is just inspired. The director sounds very, very bright. So clearly there will be something interesting going on. And hopefully, they’ll get the same kind of wonderful, funny dialogue from Tom Mankiewicz for ours.”

In closing, Kidder says that to make a good Lois – it’s all in the writing.

“It’s the old adage and it’s always true. You can make a bad movie from a good script, but you can’t make a good movie from a bad script. It’s all about the writing.”
