Amy Adams Dishes On Superman Reboot, ‘Man Of Steel’

amy-adams-man of steel interview 2012

Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams recently dished out new details regarding the forthcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel.

Adams, who plays Lois Lane in 2013 slated film, revealed director Zack Snyder (300) has an entirely new spin on the movie, right down to the color of her character’s locks.

“This was a new idea, down to the hair color. I knew people would want to talk about my hair color. It was going to be a thing,” said Adams. “Zack told me he didn’t hire me to play someone else. He hired me to play Lois Lane. It’s a whole reimagining.”

Despite the changes the new movie is promising to deliver, many movie buffs are pointing out the similarities between Adams’ personality and that of Margot Kidder, the actress who originated the role in 1978’s Superman.

In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, Adams addressed the comparisons, saying:

“It was fun. It was intimidating because it was played before by Margot Kidder, whom I love. One of my favorite movies growing up was Superman — and Superman 2. I was kind of a nerd; I loved them so much. It was important to create a character that was new because I thought she was perfect. It’s hard to step into a role where you thought someone had already achieved what could be achieved. But coming from theater, you’re always stepping into a role that’s been done before, so you’re always excited about it.”

In terms of watching the film, Adams says she has not yet seen it but is certain it will provide loads of action-packed goodness based on the amount of effort she and the movie’s star have put forth.

“I haven’t seen it. I haven’t seen any footage. It’s intense. Henry worked his tail off as Superman. It’s different for me. A lot of running. I hold a laser taser of some sort.”

Man of Steel releases June 14, 2013 and co-stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe.

    Some trailer. All it told me was that this director care nothing for the source material. I hate directors who believe they are writers and that they have the writer to change the core material or in this case, deviate from the core mythology. The director's job is to bring the material to life. If the page says her hair is black or that Superman's beard does not grow under a yellow sun or that his cape is bright red and his costume is not muted colors, then that is what is supposed to be on the screen. If it ain't on the page, it ain't on the stage. "Re"-imagining a story a writer has already imagined is like Columbus "discovering" an America where Native Americans already lived. This director turns Lois' hair brown and that is supposed to pass for creativity? Getting it wrong is NOT "re"-imagining. Put the writer's story on screen. If you have a different story to tell, imagine it yourself to begin with and put it down on paper. Then wait for an arrogant director to re-imagine it. I'm sure you'll be fine with it.

    Hair color or not, I'm just happy it's not Kate Bosworth playing Lois Lane. She was a disaster.

    Do you even read your own crap. Supermans been done before, just thought you should know. Because it seems that you.
    have only read one comic book your whole life. He is turning this movie into something different than the shot out material we have been experiencing.

    I'm going to pass after hearing john williams is not involved with the score. christopher reeve will always be superman for me. you cant beat an 8 year olds filmmaking experience. I do lik e the actor playing supes in other roles but he lacks charm, humor and charisma reeve had. thier trying to target batman begins fans, esp with having hans zimmer do the score. zacks comments about the original being corney are extreemley silly. also the suit sucks and they have lois and lana actreses mixed up as lois has redish hair, lana has dark hair. zack is ass ending this. visualy zack is a terrific director, he just doesn't have anything to say as a person, unlike someone like say spielberge.

    Um, Lois' hair is naturally brown in the Post-Crisis universe (read: Superman from 1986 to about the mid- 2000s). And yeah, Superman's facial hair still grows on Earth, too.

    This flick could go either way for me, but I do dig that Cavill resembles Byrne's Superman.

    "…many movie buffs are pointing out the similarities between Adams’ personality and that of Margot Kidder, the actress who originated the role in 1978′s Superman."

    Originated the role? Has the writer ever heard of Phyllis Coates? Noel Neill? What about Joan Alexander, who played Lois Lane on the Superman radio program (and the Fleischer cartoons) back in the 40s? Superman didn't begin and end with the Christopher Reeves film from the 70s. In fact, the very first Lois Lane was Joanne Siegel, wife of Superman creator Jerry Siegel who modeled for Jerry's partner (and Superman co-creator) Joe Shuster.

    Research, people! It's what defines a writer.
