Amy Adams will play Lois Lane in the new Superman movie.
The three-time Oscar nominee was informed by director Zack Snyder earlier today.
“There was a big, giant search for Lois. For us it was a big thing and obviously a really important role,” said Snyder.
“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.”
Henry Cavill will play the Man of Steel, while Kevin Costner and Diane Lane are on board as Pa and Ma Kent.
Earlier rumors (debunked by Gossip Cop) had Kristen Stewart taking the Lois Lane role. Kate Bosworth played the character in 2006’s Superman Returns.
The new Superman movie comes out in 2012.
What do you think of the choice of Adams?
