Los Angeles Times’ blog Hero Complex released the news that Adams beat out a host of other actresses for the coveted role.
“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” said director Zack Snyder. “For us it was a big thing and obviously a really important role. 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.”
Adams most recent film “The Fighter” earned her an Oscar nomination, and saw her co-starring with Batman himself — Christian Bale — in what is a unique coincidence. And in another unique situation, Adams guest starred on an episode of “Smallville,” the television series offering an teen-centric exploration of Superman’s origin, as a character named Jodi Melville.
But what do you think — is Amy Adams right to play Superman’s leading lady? Let us know what you think in the comment section or on Twitter!
