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.
