Henry Cavill is Clark Kent, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane are the Kents … and now "The Man Of Steel" has signed on its intrepid reporter, Lois Lane.
"The Fighter" actress (and three-time Oscar nominee) Amy Adams has signed on to play the hard-nosed investigator in Zack Snyder's reboot of the Superman franchise.
"There was a big, giant search for Lois," director Zack Snyder told the Los Angeles Times. "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."
Also backing the casting choice is Mark Miller, a popular comic book writer
"Can I just say that Amy Adams as Lois is inspired casting?" he posted on Twitter. "She's the best big-name actress of her generation and Lois SHOULD be in her thirties."
Snyder's Superman won't be following in the footsteps of "Superman Returns" and instead will be a complete reboot of the franchise in the same way as "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" re-invented the Batman saga.
Viggo Mortensen is still rumored as being considered to play Zod, the evil General from Krypton, however his casting is entirely dependent on if he is cast in the upcoming live-action "Snow White" where he is in talks to play the Huntsman. Due to the scheduling of both movies, if he signs on for the fairytale then the actor will officially be out of the running for "The Man Of Steel."
"The Man Of Steel" will be released December 2012.
