Amy Adams Cast as Lois Lane

Everybody, put down your pencils. Time for speculating is over. We now have a new Lois Lane. Amy Adams has landed the highly coveted role of Clark Kent's intrepid colleague and future love.

Adams joins the swelling cast of Zack Snyder's forthcoming franchise reboot, Superman: Man of Steel, alongside Henry Caville, Diane Lane, and Kevin Costner .

Said the director in a statement to the press on Sunday. "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."

The filmmaker and actress seem to be heading in opposite directions however as Adams is fresh off an Oscar nomination for her performance in David O. Russel's The Fighter, while Snyder is going into wound licking mode following the box-office drubbing this weekend of his polarizing original creation, Sucker Punch. We're excited to see Adams get the role however, as the character calls for both strength and beauty, and Adams has shown she can deliver.
