Amy Adams will star opposite Henry Cavill, who plays the new Clark Kent/Superman in the new Superman movie. The main cast also includes Diane Lane and Kevin Costner, as Martha and Jonathan Kent.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced Sunday that Amy Adams will star in the coveted role of Lois Lane in the new Zack Snyder-directed feature film.
Snyder remarked, “Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about. So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, 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: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.”[ Also Read: The Last Godfather from Korean Cinema ]
