The cast for Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, and the recently released Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder‘s reboot of Superman for Warner Brothers has been coming together quite nicely.
The movie, which is said to be called The Man of Steel, first cast Tudors star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, and has since brought in Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent. Now Clark has his Lois Lane with the announcement that Academy Award nominee Amy Adams has been cast in the role.
Talking with the LA Times, Snyder said:
There was a big, giant search for Lois. 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.
It goes back to what Iâ€™ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. Whatâ€™s important to us is making him relevant and real and making him empathetic to todayâ€™s audience so that we understand the decisions he makes. That applies to Lois as well. She has to be in the same universe as him [in tone and substance].
The Man of Steel will hit in 2012.
