Since the casting of Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams in the role of Lois Lane in the upcoming Superman reboot, many have been openly skeptical over the controversial choice. Man of Steel director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) has finally come to the rescue of Adams from the nay-saying fans…not that she needed it. She’s tough.
What’s so great about Amy Adams anyway?
“The awesome thing about Amy is that she has incredible chops,” Snyder told Digital Spy. “She can be tough but she also has this kindness – there’s that wonder that she still has.”
You can see this toughness and kindness in her portrayal of Amelia Earhart in the Ben Stiller comedy Night at the Museum.
Snyder goes on: “I think that both those things are going to be in play in the film. We’re just looking to make a more real world and I just think that Amy is able to bring us a level of credibility to that world.”
Earlier this week, comic book maestro Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) says that casting Adams makes perfect sense since Lois Lane is an accomplished journalist by the time she meets Clark. “She should be in her thirties,” wrote Millar. He also cited that Kate Bosworth’s take on Lois Lane in Superman Returns didn’t work because she was in the early twenties.
