We love it when a family comes together. Over the past few weeks, the entire Kent family in the upcoming Superman reboot helmed by Zack Snyder has been completely cast, with Diane Lane and Kevin Costner playing the “Ma and Pa Kent” to Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent.
Now, the circle is complete as Clark’s girlfriend/wife Lois Lane (depending on what continuity the film follows) will be played by Enchanted star Amy Adams. An interesting choice, as it seems that Snyder and producer Chris Nolan aren’t pulling any punches in terms of a well-known cast.
Snyder recently had some words about casting Adams in the classic role.
“Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about,” Snyder said in a statement 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.”
For those naysayers who have a problem with a redhead playing a brunette, let’s remind you of the last Lois, who was played by the very blond Kate Bosworth, or even a parallel superhero reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man, which has the redhead Emma Stone bleaching her tips to play a blond Gwen Stacy. Anything is possible these days.
It may seem like we’ve made a lot of progress in terms of the film’s casting, but there’s still a ways to go. Who will play the iconic Perry White and Jimmy Olsen? Also, who’s the baddie for the film? Will Zod make a return?
Hopefully we’ll get answers to these questions soon enough, as Warner Bros. is slating the film for a December 2012 release.
